How to host a classy AF Halloween party for grown-ups

I'm a big fan of Halloween parties for kids (candy! apples! games!), but if you're planning a more sophisticated Halloween party for grown-ups, you'll want to up your game. Here are a few of my favorite chic Halloween decor ideas, shmancy Halloween cocktails, and killer ways to keep things spooky at your adult Halloween shindig.

The secrets to a perfectly fancy-pants cheese board (spoiler: it's dead easy)

I recently assembled a dry run of a dead simple fall-themed cheese board for the upcoming holiday season that I desperately want to share with you. It's one of those party staples that taps into our inner Lunchable desires while still being totally lush. It's like cheese and crackers gone upscale. The best part is you just have to slice a little, arrange a little (which you know we love!), and serve.

The Simpsons-themed BBBQ (the extra B stands for baby shower)

When Ken and Erika first met through mutual friends, one of the only things Erika knew about Ken was that he loved The Simpsons. That was enough for her; she decided she liked him already. Fast forward a few more years and Erika and Ken are about to be parents. Before life becomes all about baby, Erika and Ken wanted to throw a co-ed baby shower that reflected their favourite thing: The Simpsons.

This isn't any ordinary party, though, this is the ultimate DIY baby shower that will have any Simpsons fan in awe…

How to play Cards Against Humanity as a baby shower game

I wanted to show off the awesome way that Ken and Erika and their guests played a large-scale game of Cards Against Humanity as an hilarious baby shower game!

(Psst: While these cards are hilariously baby-themed, you could easily change this to fit any party theme: birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, bar mitzvahs… This game is always a winner.)
