Hosting a Halloween party?  You can’t go wrong with classic activities like pumpkin carving, bobbing for apples, and a costume contest with prizes for the best dressed.  If you’re making this an annual tradition among your friends, think about purchasing a unique Halloween trophy you’ll pass from winner to winner each year.

For more grown-up fun, play mixologist and have a cocktail party.  Create on-theme drinks with names that play off of ghosts, vampires, and skeletons.  Witch’s Potion, Frankenpunch, and Poison Apple Cocktail sound delish, don’t they?  Oh, and don’t forget party favors—even adults can’t say no to Halloween candy!

If the weather is nice, consider entertaining al fresco.  Melamine Halloween dishes are dishwasher-safe and shatter-resistant, so you don’t have to stress about cleanup or drops.

Hang paper lanterns and set LED candles on your patio table to provide laid-back lighting that won’t cost an arm and a leg.  Spirited setting?  Check.
