A Masquerade Party

Halloween parties don't have to be just for kids! A masquerade party is a fun adult twist on the traditional kid Halloween party minus all the candy corn and costume parades.

Invite guests with homemade invites to show up with their own version of a masquerade mask, maybe even a black tie version! Provide a few masks for those that may show up without one: spray paint a simple black mask gold and replace the elastic with ribbon. Create a fun photo booth to display their masks using instant blank and white film to create more of a vintage effect. Treats like masquerade cookies and a fun touch like a black and white photo booth is a great way to remember their masked evening. Finish it off with some fun streamers and festive cocktails.
