5 Ways to Enhance Your Halloween Party

5 Ways to Enhance Your Halloween Party

 

Who says Halloween is only for kids? Boring adults. That’s who. Halloween is one of our favorite holidays here at KegWorks. A lot of us come to work dressed up, we hold a democratic costume competition, and of course, indulge in some Holiday treats and beverages.

This year, everyone is extra hyped on Halloween with it falling on a Saturday. You know what that means? You’ll likely have your pick of parties to choose from, and whether you’re hosting your own or asked to bring something to a friend’s, we have some advice for you…

1. Create Your Own Pumpkin Keg(s)

How-To-Tap-a-Pumpkin-Keg-Hero

I’m sure by now, you’ve seen one or heard us talking about them. If you haven’t seen a Pumpkin Keg, it is just as it sounds, and really easy to make (check the instructions below). Set a couple of these out with something special inside, or bring one to your party, and you’re sure to be the talk of the crowd.

2. Mix Up Some Creepy Cocktails

There are plenty out there (like this cognac and creme de cacao ditty), but here’s one of our favorites…

The Brain Hemorrhage

Brain Hemmorage Shots

Ingredients

  • 1 oz. Peach Schnapps
  • 1 tsp. Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 2 drops Grenadine

Preperation Instructions

Pour the peach schnapps into a large shot glass. Slowly add the Bailey’s and top with the grenadine.

Make these shots even better by preparing them in some of our Doomed Crystal Skull Shot Glasses

3. Spice Up the Atmosphere

There’s plenty of ways to do this – whether it’s adding some classic halloween decorations, throwing white sheets over your furniture, or adding long candles and spider webs throughout different rooms in your house/apartment.

If you want to take it a step further, you could even set up your own DIY Fog Machine for just $20! Check out instructions over at  TeeDiddlyDee.com. 

4. Hold a Costume Contest

Here at KegWorks, we simply all come in dressed up, spend the day showing off our diggs, then hold two votes to decide on the winner. The first vote is a primary, and may not be necessary depending on how many people you have, but if you’re judging over 30, I’d suggest getting it down to 3-5 candidates for the final vote.

5. Make Some Frightening Food

Skeleton Meat and Cheese Platter

There are plenty of recipes and ideas out there for changing the appearance of everyday snacks, but sometimes this turns people off from eating if the food looks gross. If you’re afraid of this, just spice up the presentation. For example, use a skeleton for your meat and cheese platter like The Photographer’s Wife did in the photo above.
