Adult Halloween Party Decorating Ideas


Greet your guests from the curb by decorating the outside of your house as much as possible.

 

Remember, the first impression is the longest lasting and the field is wide open when it comes to possibilities for outside decorating! Go all out with a crypt silhouette, a cemetery fence, and tombstones!

 

You can create your own graveyard scene by using Styrofoam tombstones. Have dirt dumped in front of the tombstones, place some dead flowers in the ground. "Liven" it up with an arm coming out of the grave too!

 

Turn your front yard into a graveyard

Hang Spider Lights around your yard/party area

 

Have your guests enter your house through your garage... and in the garage, setup a haunted tunnel. You can create your own with Black Corrugated Paper. Using a staple gun and duck tape, form a "tunnel" shape with the paper that goes throughout your garage and dead ends into your back door. Hang some Black Streamers from the tops of the tunnel in a couple different spots. Place Plastic Spiders on the floor for the party-goers to crawl through.

 

Hang a few glow in the dark items in the tunnel such as Glow Eyes.

 

Cover all of your furniture with old white sheets to replicate abandoned furniture in a haunted house.

 

Be sure to really spook your guests by hiding Plastic Spiders, Snakes, and Skeletons in odd places where they would least expect them. Place them in a soap dish in the bathroom or in a coat closet.

 

Create simple flowing spooky ghosts with White Gossamer. Basic instructions: Cut six lengths of gossamer (the length will depend on the desired size of the ghost) place them in a star pattern on your work surface and create a small hole in the center of all pieces. Inflate a balloon and tie a piece of string or monofilament line to the knot. Take the opposite end of the string and thread it through the hole in the gossamer. Lift the ghost by the string and let the gossamer drape over the balloon. The balloon provides a solid form for the ghost. Cut the bottom of the gossamer lengths to create a ragged edge. Gossamer ghosts can be made in all shapes, sizes and personalities. Add eyes, hats, mustaches and necklaces as desired. Accessories can easily be attached with tape or glue. Hang ghosts from trees, ceilings, doorways, and entryways…any location that needs a little fright! To extend the "arms" of the ghosts, simply attach additional string or monofilament line to pieces of gossamer and tie them off at a separate spot. Gossamer ghosts are lightweight and can be secured with pushpins or tacks. If they are attached securely, the gossamer ghosts will hold up frightfully well, even on the stormiest fall night. Our gossamer has been tested, and won't lose shape in the rain. In a haunted house, add a few strategically placed fans in a strobe-lit room for a spine tingling effect. A guaranteed hit, and the possibilities are endless!

 

Centerpieces can be created by using a pumpkin, foam, mylar shred and a character balloon on sticks. Simply carve out the pumpkin, insert the foam, balloon and then add the shred.

 

Don’t forget the faux Cobwebs draped from the ceiling and doorways.

 

Place Halloween luminaries on your driveway, which will help your guests find your house.

 

As an alternative to Halloween confetti as table decoration, use candy corn.

 

Spooky music or haunting sound effects adds to the atmosphere.

Don’t forget the bathroom-fill the room with candles and glow-in-the-dark insects, skeletons or ghosts.

 

 

Give all of your female guests a Witch's Hat to wear for the night and give the male party-goers a Devil's Pitchfork. This will help start some interesting conversation as well as provide a great favor for the guests to keep!

 

Serve a chilling witch's brew to guests in Glassware imprinted with your theme, or in inexpensive Stadium Cups. When the party is over, they'll take home an extra-special souvenir, and think of you every time they drink from the cup!

 

Adult Halloween Party Activities

 

 

TIE AN ORANGE RIBBON
Cut orange streamers into different lengths (at least 100-400 uneven pieces). Put everyone into pairs, and have them search throughout the house to find as many pieces of streamer as they possibly can. Players must work with their partner to tie the pieces of streamer together to create one long piece. The team with the longest streamer at the end of the game (you set the time. For example: 15 minutes), wins the game.

WHO AM I?
Write the names of famous people from scary movies (can be actors/actresses or character names, e.g. Frankenstein or Vincent Price) on index cards or post it notes and tape one to the back of each guest. Have guests walk around the room and talk to each other as if they are the person named on their card. As some begin to correctly guess their identity, they have to continue to treat the people who still don't know their identity like the person/character whose name is taped to their back. The game is over once everyone knows their "true" identity.

Suck It Up
Place two chairs at the other end of the room and set two empty containers on the chairs. Divide your guests into two teams and line them up in straight lines. Give everyone a straw and a small item (piece of candy corn, Halloween themed eraser, etc). The first person in each line places the straw in their mouth and sucks in so that the candy/eraser sticks to the end. While continuing to suck in, they walk to the chair and drop their item into the container on the chair for their team. They run back to the line and the next person goes next. Laughing could cost you the game! :)

Mysterious Balloon Relay
Cut paper into small pieces. Think of some activities (take a drink, scream loudly, kiss someone) and write them on two pieces of paper (one for each team). Place one paper slip into a balloon and blow it up. Continue until you have enough balloons for each guest. Place the balloons in bags at the opposite end of the room. Once again, in teams, have the first person in line run down, pick up a balloon, pop it, read the activity, do the activity, and then tag the next person in line. First team done wins!


Halloween Table Decorations & Food

 

Cover your table with Black Gossamer, then add one large carved out pumpkin and 2 smaller pumpkins in the center of the table. Instead of carving your pumpkins, fill them with water. Add a Mist Maker inside... makes a spooky mist without chemicals!

 

Next, lay some Tissue Grass Mats around your pumpkins and across the table, letting it hang down the sides.

 

Place 1 or 2 Ravens, perching them on the pumpkins and grass mats.

 

For placecards, check out the Headstones that can be personalized with your guests' names. Or, create your own by making sugar cookies into tombstones! Place small pumpkins and some scary candy at each place setting.

 

Scatter plastic spiders around the table.


Halloween Party Food Ideas


Pumpkin Smoothies
You will need:
½ C. of canned pumpkin
3/4 C. milk
½ t. cinnamon
1/8 t. nutmeg
2 t. brown sugar
4 ice cubes
Combine the above ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour the smoothies into a small glass and garnish with whipped topping and orange and black sprinkles. This recipe serves 2 to 3.

Witch's Brew
7-up
favorite sherbet
green Kool-Aid
green Jell-O
Place the 7up and sherbet in a large punch bowl. Fill a latex glove with green Kool-Aid and green Jell-o and put in freezer until frozen. Carefully take off the glove and place hand in the punch right before serving.

Severed Fingers
You will need:
1 pkg. of refrigerated Bread Sticks
1 Egg White
Sesame Seeds
Course Salt
Finely grated Parmesan Cheese
Slivered almonds
Preheat the oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with foil. Unroll the bread sticks and separate. In a bowl, whisk the egg white and apply a light coat to the top of each bread stick. Sprinkle sesame seeds, salt, and parmesan cheese onto the "finger". Add a blanched almond at one end to be the "fingernail". Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

 

All Hallow's Eve Dip
You will need:
1 pkg. Frozen chopped spinach
¼ C. chopped green onions
1 C. sour cream
1 C. mayonnaise
1 pkg. dry ranch dressing mix
1 large round loaf of bread
In a bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayo, and ranch dressing mix. Cover and chill overnight. Thaw the spinach. When thawed, squeeze the excess water from the spinach and add to the sour cream mixture. Add the chopped green onions and refrigerate. With a sharp knife, cut the top off of the loaf of bread. Remove the bread from inside of the loaf, leaving a 1-inch thick shell. Tear the removed bread into bite-size pieces. Carefully carve a jack-o-lantern face into the side of the bread. Do not cut too deep or your dip will leak through the face holes. Fill the bread bowl with the dip and serve with the bread pieces.

 

Deviled Eyeballs
You will need:
12 eggs
24 Green Olives w/Pimientos
1 t. mustard
½ t. salt
¼ C. Mayonnaise
Red Gel frosting
Place the eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 15 minutes. Drain the hot water and run cold water over the eggs. Peel the eggs and cut them into halves. Slice a small piece off the bottom of each half so the egg will sit flat. Scoop out the yolks and mash them together with the mayo, mustard, and salt. Spoon the mixture back into the halves. Place one olive in the middle of each "eyeball" and use red gel to draw blood shots on each eyeball. Cover and refrigerate for no more than 24 hours.

 

Use small hollowed-out pumpkins as serving dishes; black bean soup would work great! Use a pastry bag to top each bowl with a ghost-shaped dollop of sour cream just before serving.

 

Use your pumpkins in recipes like Pumpkin Gratin, Roasted Pumpkin & Goat Cheese Salad.

 

Make a Graveyard cake! Make tombstone shapes from sugar cookie dough. Bake. Write R.I.P. on the cookies with black icing, after they have cooled, and then personalize them with your guests' names. Stick the tombstones into a chocolate cake to resemble a graveyard
