Are you ready for the ghouls and goblins to come out at night? October is almost here, and so is the spooky season! Hosting an adult Halloween party is the perfect excuse for your friends to dress up, let loose, and get creepy for a night. Discover how to make planning this event easier with our advice below.
Create Frightening Invitations With a Dress Code
Halloween is the one night of the year where you can be over-the-top with your decorations, costumes, food, etc. Prepare to take this party to the max by crafting frightening invitations for your guests. If you have a specific theme for the night, include this on the invitation so that the guests know what they should wear or bring to your haunting party.
Enchant Your Home With Eerie Décor
You can’t host a party without decorations. Enchant your home with tombstones, cobwebs, cauldrons, and other spooktacular items. If you’re creative, craft festive Halloween bows to hang on doorframes and other items for a more personable touch to the event. The whole party can’t be a smash without the ultimate eerie aesthetic.
Curate a Petrifying Playlist
Skip your go-to party playlist and craft an original one consisting of music perfect for All Hallows’ Eve. Think of Michael Jackson’s Thriller as your playlist inspiration or Freaks Come Out At Night by Whodini. Nothing can set the mood quite like an epic, petrifying playlist. Ask guests what they want to hear throughout the party to ensure everyone enjoys their time.
Don’t Forget Gruesome Food and Beverages
The goblins of your party will get hungry—don’t forget to feed them! Halloween allows the perfect excuse to dress up in bizarre ways and make gruesome and exciting appetizers and drinks. The more drastic you can make these items, the more fun and enjoyable your party will be!
Enhance the Mood With Haunting Lighting
When you think of Halloween, you typically envision nighttime with a bright and full moon. Mimic this aesthetic and style at your party by burning candles and placing haunting-colored lights throughout the room. Ensure you’re leaving decent lighting by the food so that guests know what items they’re grabbing.
Get Creepy With Ghoulish Games
You can’t host an adult Halloween party without the games! Consider the classics, like diving for apples, costume contests, or telling ghost stories. Keep the goblins of your party engaged by having a plethora of ghoulish games available throughout the night.
Don’t be afraid to tap into your creative side and get a little spooky—after all, this is Halloween! This time of year is one of the best for hosting parties and getting silly with friends. What will you do for your Halloween party this year?
