Halloween parties are no fun if there aren’t any decorative elements such as costume-required admission, scary decorations, and spooky drinks. But with these additions, party planning may seem a bit stressful. Catch these 10 crazy easy Halloween party ideas for adults.
1. Brew Your Own Signature Halloween Cocktail
It’s no party without drinks. Follow the theme and go for a Halloween cocktail. During the fall, black rum, black vodka, pumpkin spice liquor, and more hit the shelves. Come up with a new, seasonal cocktail that’ll surprise your guests.
Don’t be basic and go for a screwdriver. Need some inspiration? Try something different like this Hocus Pocus Cocktail.
If you’re looking for something easier, you can also go for punch bowls and spookify them with dry ice.With your favorite recipe, simply add some dry ice (with caution) and serve it at your party.
2. BYOB Fall Edition
Thinking about the perks of BYOB? Ask everyone to bring a seasonal 6-pack and see the variety of yumminess that’s about to take place. Think Samuel Adams’s Oktoberfest, Shipyard’s Smashed Pumpkin, and so much more. Perfect Halloween party idea for beer fanatics. OR you can always buy those large party packs from Samuel Adams that include the Oktoberfest.
3. Make Food Coloring Your Best Friend
Let me save you a trip to Pinterest and just buy food coloring. SERIOUSLY. Easily color code finger food by dropping a bit of food coloring into the mix. For example, this works well with snacks like macarons like in the picture. But this also works for chicken wings! The options are endless with just a bit of food coloring. You don’t have to go out of your way to make pretzels that look like witches’ fingers.
4. Scare the Living Hell Out of Everyone
Play your best Halloween tunes, but insert a loud scream in the middle of it. Watch everyone take a step back in horror. Well, that isn’t the real idea here, but I’m dying to try it.
Motion sensor decorations are the most common ways to frighten someone. But you can easily cause a jump scare by placing an inanimate decoration in the right spot.
5. DIY Tombstones
Don’t these DIY tombstones look awesome? To make one yourself, you can find the tutorial for Jen Woodhouse’s DIY Tombstones here.
6. Loads of Spiders & Bats
The simplest way to decorate for Halloween are adding spiders and bats. Plaster spider webs all over every corner with a bit of plastic spiders to top off a Halloween look. Then add paper bats along the walls to complete the look.
8. Fog it up!
Fog machines are the easiest way to create a Halloween mood. Add a little bit of mystery to your party by making it hard for people to see.
9. Get Some Fancy Halloween-Themed Tableware
Don’t just pull out your everyday tableware. Sometimes it’s all about the little things. Subtle pieces can really transform a space and make it properly Halloween-themed. Hit up your local T.J. Maxx/Home Goods, Marshalls, and Ross for awesome Halloween tableware that are a step up from your paper plates from the Dollar Tree.
10. Wall Decals
My favorite way to decorate (and also the easiest way) for the holidays is adding wall decal. They can easily transform an entire wall without doing a lot of work.
These easy Halloween party ideas for adults are the must-haves for any person throwing a party this season. And there’s no limit to how crazy you can get with it. It’s Halloween, it’s your excuse to go wild.
