Plan Your Haunting Halloween Party with Free Printables

by | Sep 26, 2023 | Decor

Planning an adult Halloween party doesn’t have to be complicated but it sure can get overwhelming. We’re here to help!

An adult Halloween party needs good food, a consistent theme throughout the party space, and an atmosphere that matches that mood or theme. Using matching printouts for your invitations, labels and games will give your event a more grown up and sophisticated feel.

To get your party started off right, I’ve made some custom and free printables for you to use that will assist in the planning process. From a easy to follow checklist, to the “Best Costume Awards“, I’ve got you covered!

Halloween Party Checklist

This is a great place to start! I put together this easy-to-follow checklist so you don’t miss a thing. Remove your stress one checkmark at a time!

Starting from a month out to the day of the party, each step is broken down for you.

In addition to that, there are 32 FREE DOWNLOADS  to make sure your party is the most memorable for your friends and family.

Where to Begin When Planning Your Party

Step one when planning your Halloween party is pick a theme. If you have spent any time at all looking into this, then you probably know there’s an endless number of ideas.

When designing these printouts for you, I went with a classic, Halloween theme with skeletons, spiders, and blood drips. This theme will work no matter what trends come in or out.

Year after year, you’ll be able to repurpose these amazing tags and invites with great success!

Prepare Your Invitations

Along with your party theme, setting the date, times, and budget, you’ll want to get your guest list worked out.

Once you know who you want to invite, now we have to look at how to invite them all!

You have a couple options and we have the download for what you need.

Paper Halloween Invitations

Invite Option #1: Classic Printed Invitations

Great if you plan on seeing your friends in person. They can keep this invite on the fridge or their cork board at the office.

Simply print on card stock and fill in the details. These invites come with a front and back design for an entertaining pro look.

Invite Option #2: Email or Text

When you need to get your invites to everyone in one swoop, emailing or texting is by far the most effective.

All you have to do is download to your phone or computer and send it to your favorite people with everything they need to know!

Facebook Event

Invite Option #3: Facebook Event

Setting up a Facebook event is so easy and a great way for your guests to RSVP in one click. Posting questions or plans for the event is a great way to get everyone excited and ready to party.

Once the image is downloaded, simply upload to the cover photo when creating your event.  Couldn’t be easier!

Halloween Food Labels

It’s kind of a given that the food at your Halloween party should be given creepy names. 

For an adult party, I recommend keeping these names spooky but not gross. We want everyone to actually eat.

Add a Little Fright to Your Food

Just by adding these fun labels to your food display, will make your haunting party that much more fun. I included both pre-filled labels and blanks so you can add in your own creative ideas.

Watch as your guests go through and read each creepy appetizer and cocktail tag for some shrieks and giggles. (And we haven’t even served the brew yet!)

Halloween Games & Party Favors… For Grown-Ups

Throwing an adult Halloween party should include some entertainment. I love including games with prizes at my parties because it gets everyone involved.

Here are a couple Halloween themed games and party favor printables your guests will scream over!

Game Option #1: Halloween Taboo

Don’t say the word!

One of the best games, in my opinion, for an adult party.

A guarantee to have everyone in stitches.

Print the cards and instructions on bright white card stock.

Game Option #2: Halloween Charades

Now this one get’s everyone up!

Put away those inhibitions, especially if you’ve had a witch’s brew cocktail or two, and let’s pretend to be something spooky.

We’ve got you covered with both grown-up scary characters and a more family-friendly version. I like tapping into both!

Game Option #3: Speed Spider Maze

For our more introvert friends, this is a great option!

Or if you have extremely competitive friends even in maze running.

Print out these sheets and give everyone 5 minutes to reach the center. Whoever gets there first is the winner!

For the Winners or for Everyone

Make sure you have some fun prizes for your game winners.

If games aren’t your thing or you want everyone to go home a winner, print out these gift tags for horror loving gifting.

Gift Tags to Print

It’s pretty straightforward to print out these tags on card stock. But to save you some time and energy of cutting, hole punching and thread tying, I recommend these Avery brand gift tag printable sheets.

I use them all the time and the process to print right in your printer is so much easier and faster.

Speaking of Winners…

Did I mention I made you these adorable Costume Award Certificates?! These are a must have for any Halloween costume party!

End your night with the best of the best awards.

And the Award Goes To…

Print out these certificates, 11 to choose from, for the most creative, silly, original, and a whole bunch more on card stock or colored paper of your choice.

Your guests will leave knowing they really made a splash, or a fright, or a gruesome impression everyone will remember.
