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
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.
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!

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