Adult Halloween Party Ideas + Drinks

2022 Adult Halloween party ideas including spooky cocktails and party favors

Who said Halloween is just for kids?

Forget that! Grown-ups are the ones who need to scare away the bad stuff! Plus Halloween a great excuse to be someone else for a day AND drink themed cocktails - which makes everything better in my book.

If you are thinking of throwing a grown-up Halloween shin-dig this year, we've got you covered with a few ideas to get you started and even more ideas on our Pinterest. First up, let's decorate.

Halloween decorations

Everyone has their own Halloween aesthetic. Are you more scary or cute?

We are team cute around here and we've pulled together a few of our favorite *cute* Halloween ideas. I mean, get out of here with those cute ghost pinatas!

DIY Halloween decor ideas for adult Halloween parties

2. DIY Halloween pinatas from Make & Tell
3. Pun-pkins from Studio DIY
4. Funny ideas for decorating with skeletons from A Beautiful Mess

Halloween Cocktails

Is it even a party if there isn't a signature cocktail? We think not.

Here are four yummy options to get you started. We have even more on our Halloween Cocktail Pinterest board so if these don't strike your fancy head over there for more. We are all about the booze after all.

2. Spiked Jolly Rancher party punch from Sugar and Charm
3. Pumpkin punch from Honestly Yum
4. Blackbeard martini from Honestly Yum

Halloween Snacks

Decor - done, cocktails - check. Now onto the snacks.

Halloween snacks can definitely look bit kid-y but we think these treats could be a fun addition to your party. As we were cruising the interwebs we learned that if 
you put candy eyes on any food it instantly becomes a Halloween snack. Pizza with eyes? Why not? If you have trouble finding the eyes locally, you can grab them online here.

2. Jalapeno mummies from Frugal Coupon Living
3. Skull gourmet chocolates from andSons
4. Zombie nachos from Shaken Together Life

Halloween party favors for your Halloween cocktails

 Halloween cocktail party favors for Halloween drinks

1. Halloween Swizzly Sticks for drinkware from The Pursuit of Cocktails
2. Here for the boos plastic straws from The Pursuit of Cocktails
3. Orange paper bendy straws from The Pursuit of Cocktails
4. Halloween Swizzly Sticks for cans from The Pursuit of Cocktails

Strictly speaking, if you've decorated, stocked the bar and fed your guests you are already an incredible hostess!

But if you want to take it to the next level, why not add a few party favors to the mix. Add a little flair to your cocktails with our "here for the boos" Halloween straws or go for our paper straws in orange. Then top off everyone's drink with a Halloween themed Swizzly Stick. We have them for both canned drinks and cocktail glasses so no matter what kind of drinks you are serving, you can add a little Halloween shaped drink marker to everyone's drink. 

If you try any of these Halloween ideas, we'd love to hear from you in the comments. And check out our Pinterest boards for even more Halloween ideas: 

Halloween Party Planning

  • Heya.

    Black and orange is my go to Halloween party theme. I serve up black and orange cocktails. I pin up cheap black and orange party decorations and everyone must come in whatever black and orange costumes they can find. I even wear a nice black and orange outfit myself. To kickstart things I hand out black and orange sweets in a bowl.

    There is rather spooky music playing. One classic party game is to tell a creepy story in a circle. We then move onto charades and conclude with chase the witch. This is a bucket list of party games we tend to have, chase the witch, pass the pumpkin, charades, and so on.

    Thara on
