My kids are so excited for me to throw them a Halloween party this year, but I am even more excited to throw myself, my neighbors, and all of our friends an adult Halloween party! And by adult I mean, no kids allowed! Call a a babysitter, dig out your very best Halloween costume, and head out this Halloween! These spooky Halloween party ideas aren’t kid-friendly!
Fill plastic syringes with red jello shots. You can choose to make them alcoholic, or not, but I think this is one “shot” everyone will enjoy getting!
These candied “poison” apples might be a little too messy for the kids, but they’re perfect for the adults! Bustle has the full recipe, and you’ll definitely want to visit a local orchard for the greenest apples! Don’t these look simply spooky with the green and black?
Jello shots simply not enough to quench your thirst? I didn’t think so! Custom martinis, cocktails and different kinds of wine make this party bar the place to be. Make sure you write a menu so your guests know what to expect!
As always, you can go totally non-alcoholic and serve delicious fall ciders, cream sodas, and maybe even some movie themed drink (like Butterbeer!)
Unexpected Elegance reminds all of us party hosts how important the art of the centerpiece is! Head out to your backyard (or local pumpkin patch) and find the most bizarrely shaped pumpkins you can. Paint them white, and make them a home fit for the creepiest crawlies and spooky spiders. You wouldn’t catch me near that thing! They look too real!
No wonder these are an idea for an adult party! I don’t know if you could convince the kiddos to eat these spiderwebbed hardboiled eggs, but you’d have no problem with me! Snag the recipe at Bombay Outdoors.
Need a snack that will satisfy your guests without scaring them away from the food table? Try a cheeseball…in the shape of a pumpkin! Use strips of peeled carrots and a celery as the stem, and there you have the easiest party snack…ever! Full recipe at Recipe Girl.
This party decoration might just terrify any guest under the age of ten! Well..maybe. Regardless, this hanging “bat mobile” looks incredibly lifelike, and casts some totally terrifying shadows on your walls! Jenkia’s Blog has the step-by-step DIY.
Now, now, now, would it really be a Halloween party without incorporating dry ice into the scheme somewhere? Fill a cauldron with it, or create a haunting scene that greats your guests as they knock on the front door. Home and Style has everything you’ll need to know about throwing a party with dry ice!
A party isn’t really a party without a set of AWESOME invitations. Fortunately, Minted has tons of options available for you like these Skeleton in the Closet Halloween Cards.
Chocolate covered Strawberries aren’t just for Valentines Day! Try them for your Halloween party, as well! These treats might go unappreciated by kids (these are kind of a process to prepare!) but your adult guests would savor them! Use black icing for a ghoulish face! From Delish.
