5 tips for a spook-tacular Halloween party

Here at Funkin Cocktails, we love Halloween! We love to celebrate with awesome cocktails, spooky food, mind-blowing cocktails and super-cool decorations. Here's our top Halloween party tips!


They may seem childish, but everyone loves a good Halloween party game. Age is just a number and no-one is too mature for apple bobbing, a spooky treasure hunt or pin the head on the zombie! We also love a good piñata, hunt around online or make your own ghost / Vampire / Pumpkin piñata. Want some Inspiration? Head over to our piñata Pinterest board!

Spooky snacks

Food for the occasion is essential, and it’s an excuse to get creative! Orange, green and black Halloween cookies are easy to make and so tasty. Iced biscuits, pumpkin shaped cake-pops and scary Oreo's are also crowd pleasers. To make things a little easier for you, we have created a Halloween food Pinterest board.

Creepy cocktails

Time to use your imagination! Green cocktails look great at Halloween and you can make mocktails for the younger guests! An easy way to decorate your Halloween drinks is to use a cutter (for example a bat shape), and cut out fruit to decorate your cocktail or garnish your drinks with jelly worms! Want some more ideas? Yes, we made a Halloween cocktails Pinterest board and if you are looking for a party pack to make your drinks a little easier, we have amazing kits for Freaky Tiki Halloween cocktails which come with skull glasses!


Halloween is the perfect excuse to dress up! Fake blood is so cheap and easy, so if you have no time to buy or make a costume, you could always dress up as a dead rock star or Hollywood starlet of yesteryear. Wear a white bedsheet to be a ghost, or wrap yourself in bandages to be a Mummy. If you are feeling creative, there are so many amazing homemade costume ideas on Pinterest, it's a perfect excuse to dust down your sewing machine!


Decorate your house as spookily as possible! Cobwebs, pumpkin shaped lights, fake spiders and carved pumpkins are perfect to make your house look festive! Decorations can be really easy to make and super fun, you could even have a halloween crafting table at your party so you could add to your decorations as the night goes on! Don't forget to deorate your cocktails with orange and black coloured straws and some scary looking cocktail sticks.
