How to Have a Halloween Party for Adults

  • A group of adults smiles for the camera at a Halloween party.
Keep it creepy.

That’s the only rule you really have to follow when throwing a Halloween party. And the creepier the better, especially when it comes to your food, drinks, decorations, and music.

Halloween Party Ideas for Adults—Food

You don’t have to be a great chef to get into the spirit of Halloween. There’s no pressure to put together an elegant menu with appropriate wine selections. Instead, you make it about having fun—and the more over the top you are, the better.

You could start with spiked eyeball punch. Or you could let your drinks do double duty as décor with a cool all-black bar set up.

How about deviled spider eggs as an app? Or pumpkin patch cheese balls with a surprise inside? For your main dish, you’ll get both style and substance with Martha Stewart’s cauldron curry.

As fun as all those ideas are, dessert Is the time to pull out all the stops. Consider getting creative with monster cake pops or an elegant and sticky marshmallow cobweb cake.

Halloween Party Ideas for Adults—Decorations

Even just a few simple touches can transform the feel of your home. A spider web tablecloth is a good place to start. You’ll also find plenty of unique accents on Etsy, like this needlepointed haunted house and this skull garland.

Halloween Party Ideas for Adults—Music

You want your playlist to be creepy, but you also want it to be good. Create a spooky Halloween playlist that gives you both, with tunes like “Werewolves in London” by Warren Zevon, “Psycho Killer” by Talking Heads, and “Falling” by Julee Cruse (the super creepy theme song for “Twin Peaks”).

Halloween and StorageMart

It’s fun to be festive and decorate for the seasons, including Halloween. But it’s not so fun when you find yourself running out of space to store them after the holiday is over. If you’re looking to unclutter your home (and get a bit more organized) consider self storage as a possible solution.

At StorageMart, you can rent a unit as small as 25 square feet or so—or up to the size of a garage. Our self storage units can be rented on a month-by-month basis and are always clean and well lit. Need more info? Contact us today or rent a unit online today.
