Halloween is the perfect adult party occasion because it lends itself naturally to spirited fun. Eerie or elegant, free-form or fancy, this light-hearted occasion lets you express your personal style.
Try assigning a theme such as Venetian masquerade and ask your guests to dress accordingly. Decorate the table with bright orange persimmons strewn among ivy branches. Arrange beeswax candles among the leaves. And serve a seasonally celebratory dinner menu.
