Halloween party ideas and tips


Adult Halloween parties can be very fun! Hold a costume contest, have a theme party, the possibilities are endless!

If you run short on ideas, there are many here at Halloween.it!

Make it spooky with mood music! You can find all kinds of Halloween music and sound effects CDs for kids and adults.

Make your table setting a spooky one using fake spider webs, Halloween tableware, and other Halloween decorations.


  1. If using dry ice in a punch bowl, make sure that the person serving keeps any dry ice chips out of drinks! It can cause severe injury if ingested.

  2. If you are holding your party in your house, make sure that you move any breakable pieces of furniture or knick-knacks to another room where they can't get broken. A forgotten heirloom vase that hits the floor could ruin the night for you.

  3. To keep things moving for either an adult party or child's party, make sure that you have some games, like a scavenger hunt or a murder mystery planned in advance (see below for ideas).

  4. Whip up a batch of Halloween cupcakes the day before, have the kids help you out. Any treats or party food that can be made in advance is always a big help!

  5. Having a pumpkin carving party on the night before Halloween can be a great way to start off the festivities. Either adults, kids or both, you can have a wonderful time and get all your pumpkins carved at the same time!

  6. Set up a table with treats, punch and goodies in your front yard if you live in a small neighborhood. Invite the children and their parents to stop by for refreshments, you'll start a small party right in your front yard! Just make sure you set up a nice yard haunt, too!
