All Hollows’ Eve Barware: Tips for Throwing a Fun Halloween Party for Adults

September 1, 2017

Halloween is far more than just trick-or-treating—celebrating Halloween can be fun for everyone! After all, as kids grow up, they rarely quit celebrating Halloween once they’ve decided they’re too cool for trick-or-treating. In fact, annual Halloween costume parties are quite the tradition. Starting from high school Halloween sock hops and college dorm floor parties to office parties and casual reunions, celebrating Halloween can be small- or large-scale, and is always fun, no matter your age!

Like a chef slaving over the ideal ingredients and arrangement of the main course of a meal, planning the perfect Halloween party may also seem challenging. After all, what goes into your Halloween party preparation, and its presentation, is key. Keep reading for some helpful tips for making your Halloween bash a huge hit!

Creating a scary and fun Halloween aura at your party starts right at the front door. Consider our Black Metallic Fringed Door Curtain or Skull Lace Door Curtain to create an eerie entrance for your guests to walk through to the haunting Halloween party. Once inside, make sure to set a super spooky bar-top. Our 42” round Skull Lace Table Cover or Halloween Table Runner is sure to add an element of grim glamour. Top your bar or serving table with some of our neon orange LED and light-up cups, great for a wide variety of autumn drinks, or try our 10 oz. neon orange LED light-up margarita glasses, or our 7 oz. neon orange LED light up martini glasses for your Halloween signature cocktails. Orange glow swizzle sticks make excellent drink stirrers, and our orange glow motion straws are fun to sip from! To add a mystic aura, pop a few of our LED dry ice cube capsules into any glass or table centerpiece (dry ice sold separately) and watch your guests’ growing unease & awe as a foggy mist seeps from their glass. No Halloween bar is complete without the creepiest of crawlers, spiders! Strategically set our fake plastic spiders all around for an unforgettably frightful night!

Don’t Forget to Serve Up Some Spooky Good Refreshments!

From witch hat cookies to creepy crawler cupcakes, the refreshments at your Halloween party play a key role in stirring up scary sensations for your guests. Try making our delicious Witch’s Brew Cocktail at your next Halloween party.
