Halloween is one of the most festive nights of the year for children, but what about adults? Throw your friends a festive Halloween party with these helpful tips!

  1. Costume Contest

Everyone loves a costume party! Call for a “Classy Halloween” or incorporate a theme into your event, such as 80s or famous monsters. Reward the winner with a gift card to a nice restaurant or a nice bottle of liquor.

  1. More Than Candy

While both children and adults alike love candy, spruce it up a bit by doing a “blood fountain” with red chocolate for a fondue. Incorporate a cheese board with gooey and holy cheeses. Jell-o shots are always a fun and festive sweet treat for party goers. Use black food coloring for breads, cookies, etc.

  1. Party Games

Adult themed Halloween party games can be as simple as Halloween trivia or bobbing for mini-shots. You can even theme your party around a murder mystery.

  1. Spooky Themed Cocktails

Turn wine bottles into mummies with a little bit of fabric tape. Try a Harry Potter cocktail (https://www.halfbakedharvest.com/the-half-blood-prince-cocktail/) or a smoky Poison Apple Martini from Half Baked Harvest (https://www.halfbakedharvest.com/poison-apple-martini/)

  1. Uber or Shuttle

One of the smartest party favors you can give your guests after a fun filled evening is a safe ride home. Either offer to get their Uber, or hire a sober driver who can run shuttle for your guests.


Whether tricking or treating, dressing up or dressing down, let this Halloween be a celebratory time for you and your friends. This Halloween, be sure to Play Hard, Play Safe! If you or a loved one finds themselves in trouble with the law, call Donahue Law Firm at 541-279-2213.
