Halloween parties aren’t just for kids – Halloween parties can be great fun for adults too! It’s the only time of year adults can dress like Wonder Woman or Batman in public and not get thrown in the local psychiatric ward. Might as well take advantage of it!
Hosting a Halloween party is so much fun you may just make it an annual thing. Check out some of the ideas below to make your bash ghoulishly amazing!
Halloween party decorations
Start by decorating for the occasion. Drape as much in black as you can, and get some fake spiderwebs for corners. You can even buy adorable labels for your spirits (not the undead kind of spirits). Clearly mark the restroom with a restroom door decoration.
You can also go with a costumed theme – superheros, zombies, ghouls, and slaughtered fairy tale princes and princesses are popular. Any of those ideas make for great pictures afterwards. Be careful, though, some people don’t like to be stuck into a theme and won’t show up if they don’t want to dress like that. As a matter of fact, some people love Halloween parties, but feel uncomfortable dressing up at all. It might be a good idea to make a notation on the invitation that dressing up is welcome but optional.
Fun Halloween treats
The best part of any Halloween party is the edible goodies! Here are a few recipes for some fun treats:
2 cans (12 oz. each) frozen lemonade concentrate, partly thawed
2 cans (12 oz. each) frozen orange juice concentrate, partly thawed
1 bottle (750 mL) Light Rum (optional)
2 bottles (2 liters each) lemon-lime soda (like Sprite or 7-Up)
2 quarts of lime sherbert
Find a plastic body part from the dollar store and stick it in there – it tastes great and guests will love it! Also, you can serve the punch in a cauldron for added effect (check the local dollar store).
Red food coloring
Super easy – take melted butter, add food coloring, and drizzle it over popcorn! (This is a messy one – make sure you have plenty of napkins!) You can also use different colors to make green slimy popcorn, moldy popcorn, dirty popcorn, etc.
Creepy Crawly Ice Cubes
Also a very simple idea – take regular ice cube trays, insert (washed) novelty bugs into them, fill them with water, and freeze. Your guests will have spiders or flies in their drinks all night!
Now that you’re armed with these scarily awesome ideas, let’s party!
