    • 1

      Plan your party. If you wish, choose a theme. (See tips below.)

    • 2

      Make a list of people you want to invite.

    • 3

      Send invitations noting the theme and whether or not guests should wear costumes.

    • 4

      Decorate with anything from crepe paper streamers and balloons to a full-fledged house of horrors. Get small plates, forks and napkins in Halloween colors.

    • 5

      Play one or two short games such as bobbing for apples, musical chairs or charades with a Halloween theme. Or get into a Halloween mood with a Ouija board or tarot card readings.

    • 6

      Provide finger foods such as cheese and crackers, popcorn, pretzels, cocktail wieners or meatballs, veggies and dip, deviled eggs, finger sandwiches or mini-quiches.

    • 7

      Offer drinks such as "Nuclear Waste," made with one shot blue curacao mixed with orange juice and vodka. Or, mix your favorite alcoholic punch and add an eerie cast to the brew with food coloring.

    • 8

      Talk. Most adults like to have some time to visit and talk, so try not to fill the whole night with planned activities.

Tips & Warnings

  • Provide each guest or couple with a disposable camera to record the fun.

  • Theme ideas include famous historical figures, action heroes, dress up as your favorite song, a masquerade ball and the ’50s.

  • Serve drinks in a witch’s cauldron with dry ice at the bottom.

  • For a dark theme, use candles, scary CDs for sound effects, spider webs and dry ice. For a light theme, make the decorations more fun and keep the lights up.

  • Do not allow dry ice to come in contact with your skin, and be sure no pieces get into anyone’s drink. Dry ice may also damage plastic, so put a punch bowl inside the cauldron before adding dry ice.
