Halloween For Adults

Halloween should be for the adults, too. From large parties, to quiet get-togethers, grown-ups are crafting their own Halloween traditions. Read on for ideas…

Feeling Low-key? Take a cue from MakeItBetter.net’s Family Editor, Catherine Rocca, who held a pumpkin carving party one Halloween. “We supplied the pumpkins and carving tools, and everyone carved one. Then we turned out the lights in the kitchen, lit the Pumpkin heads, ate chili and drank beer, surrounded by an array of wonderfully creative pumpkin faces.”

Feeling Ambitious? Sure, they can be a lot of work to plan and execute, but if done well, costume parties can be frighteningly fun.

Where to start? Let expert party planner Matt Cail and his videos help.
