Black & Orange Ball
The traditional colors of Halloween take a glamorous spin with this elegant party theme. If you want to make it a masquerade ball, send a black mask with each invitation. Decorate your mantel with a black lace mantel scarf, orange lights and candelabra at each end, or hang orange and black lanterns from the ceiling. Dig out your best recipes from your stash of cookbooks to make the perfect meal. Send guests home with a treat bag filled with black and orange M&M's.
Mad Scientist Laboratory
Have your friends dress up in lab coats, safety goggles, rubber gloves and crazy wigs. Serve drinks in test tubes, an eyeball cake, zombie brain gelatin and severed finger cookies.
Resurrect the Old West with a Halloween saloon set up in your home. Round up a poker table, roll out an antique bar cart stocked with country cocktails, root beer and sarsaparilla, and set up a photo booth with a wanted sign backdrop. Guests can dress as gunslingers, barkeeps, dance hall girls or other Wild West characters.
Eerie Halloween Wedding
On the invitation, ask guests to come in formerly-worn formal wear. Serve a tiered wedding cake topped with a skeleton couple, offer a blood red signature cocktail drink, and decorate with black candelabras and red roses.
Whether your guests come as couples or single monsters, there are plenty of possibilities for costumes, including werewolf, vampire, zombie, skeleton, mummy, Cyclops, witch and many more. Set the stage in your home with creepy cobwebs, a fog machine, lighted candles and spooky Halloween music. For food, serve cheese eyeballs, mummy dogs and bat wings with drip sauce. Here are some great Halloween recipes.
Send out treasure map invitations and invite your friends to come dressed up in their best pirate costume. Serve roasted chicken and turkey legs, fill a metal bucket with chocolate coins and mark it "Treasure" or gummy worms and mark it "Fish Bait." A classic pirate's drink is Grog: dark rum, a teaspoon of sugar, cloves, lemon juice, a dash of cinnamon and a splash of hot water. Serving it in a hearty mug completes a true tradition. You could even carry the theme to your bathroom and decorate with skull and crossbones bath decor.
