It seems like there are generally two kinds of Halloween parties — the ones for children, that are all too family-friendly, or a high intensity, no-holds-barred party with naughty costumes. We can’t do either now, thanks to COVID-19, but we’re in love with a new option: the sophisticated Halloween dinner party.

It’s way more elegant and classier than the other Halloween options out there — gone are the days of fake spider webs and dry ice. You can do a spooky theme if you still want people to dress up, or the food itself can have a theme.

1. Pick a theme

You can opt for anything from vampire themed (thinks lots of crimson shades and blood-inspired touches…bloody chocolate fountain, anyone?) to goth or tarot cards. You can even do a movie theme, like Annabelle or another homage. Frankenstein is also a popular choice.

2. Details, details, details

Choose a date and time. Unless Halloween is on a weekend, make sure to check in with people beforehand. You might not be able to throw it on actual Halloween, so find a time that works for everyone. If activities are going to be happening along with dinner, start the event on the earlier side. Decide if you want to casually invite people, or create invitations to send out.

3. Think up those entrees, but think small

Get creative with food. Everyone knows the classic Pinterest Halloween tricks like “dirt” cupcakes or hot dog mummies, but if you want to elevate your dining experience, stick with. A range of appetizers or small plates. You can also do a massive charcuterie spread, so people can graze on a range of cheese, meats, fruit, crackers, and whatever else you can conjure up. A Halloween themed charcuterie board sounds amazing, to be awesome.
