So, you love Halloween but aren't so much into the whole "go to a crowded bar, pay to get in, end up getting annoyed with all of the drunk people bumping into you with their costumes, end up leaving after 20 minutes, go to another bar and the cycle continues" thing. We get it. Sure, it's fun in college but can't we do Halloween in a semi-adult way at some point? For those who want to embrace the spooky and dark, but not in a bar or at house party, there is, in fact, an alternative. Why not have a Halloween dinner party for a handful (or more, depending on how ambitious you are) of friends? You can even have people come in costume, and if the mood strikes you can check out a bar after a nice civilized meal.
Having a Halloween dinner party that ends up chic while still fun and in the spirit of all things Halloween is just as much about knowing what to leave out as it is about what you should put in. If you're looking for a Pinterest-fueled, spiderwebs everywhere, black lights vibe, this isn't your scene. In fact, in the list of things we would leave out of a chic Halloween dinner party, fake, cottony spiderwebs would be top of list.
Also, use real dinnerware, don't incorporate any orange, and for goodness sake don't get theme-y on the food. A theme-y drink? Cool. But no adult is hoping for a carrot that looks like a witch's finger as an appetizer. Want some ideas on what you should do? Keep reading!
