Tips for Hosting an Adult Halloween Party
Hosting an adult Halloween party is so much fun! Not that having a party with young kids isn’t; but sometimes adults need to let loose a little too! Sometimes you just need to be with only adults. So here are some groovy tips on hosting an adult Halloween party.
Tip #1: Arrange Designated Drivers
If there is alcohol at the party, arrange for taxi’s or have a few people be designated drivers after the party. Just in case. Or have a few places for people to sleep if they are not good to drive.
Tip #2: Keep in Mind People’s Food Allergies
When inviting guests, always ask if there are any food allergies. Then make a few dishes to ensure they have munchies as well. Sometimes the people who have the food allergies will insist that they can bring something themselves.
Tip #3: Have some games for when the party seems to die down
We adults also like to play games! It’s not just for kids ya know! You can get some games for all types. Games such as Murder Mystery, Halloween Feel Box, Movie Trivia and more! There are also many games that won’t even cost you anything. Who doesn’t like that?!
Tip #4: Have some Halloween themed food
Ok I know I mentioned food allergies before but really with a party you need some kick tushie food! Things like spooky caramel apples, witches brew drinks, candy corn Jello shots, spider web cakes etc.
Tip #5: Have a Halloween themed party
It’s always fun to have a bit of a theme going. Themes like massacre on the titanic, dead disco, ’80s death of disco, ghoulish diner of the ’50s, etc.
Tip #6: Deco out the house
If you look around on Pinterest and other great websites (herstyletrends.com for example), you shall be able to find some really “killer” ideas to decorate your house for your party. Many of the decorations you can either make or purchase for cheap from the dollar store or similar places. Spook out the house!
Tip #7: Don’t go crazy with colors in your decorating
As much fun as it would be to go uber psycho with the colors for decorating, if you really look, you will see that if you stick to simple color pallets, your decorations will look awesome! For example, classic black and white looks sophisticated and metallics add an air of glamour.
Tip #8: Theme up your food and not necessarily your decor
Halloween is a playful kind of holiday where anything can happen. But if you are tired of just plain orange, theme your food! Try festive cakes like marshmallow cobwebbed cakes, or mix together cubed melon and raspberries for a different color effect or even black and orange hors d’oeuvres.
