A wine tasting party for All Hallows Eve? We’re definitely saying yes to that! But how do you host a fun and memorable wine tasting party amidst all those other Halloween parties? Well, for one thing, it’s not a competition. So focus not on impressing your guests but on how to give them an enjoyable experience. Here are some tips to hosting a spooktacular one:

Host a spooktacular Halloween wine party!

Plan it out with your family or friends

If you’re married, or you have a family, or you live with roommates, it’s always a good idea to sit down together and plan things out. That way, you will be able to pool all your ideas and come up with the best party plan. It’s especially so if there will be quite a bit of age variety with your guests. For example, if you’re hosting a family-based party, where will you put the kids while the adults do the wine tasting? How will you keep them entertained? If it’s a strictly adult affair, how will you accommodate the non-drinkers? And how about those experiencing wine tasting for the very first time? With others contributing valuable input, your party will definitely be an awesome one.

Decide on a theme carry it out well

Obviously, it’s going to be a Halloween-themed party. But narrowing it down to something more specific will make things go more smoothly. It will help you decide on the best menu for both the wine and food. You will also be able to choose the most appropriate decor, as well as invitations. Moreover, it will give your guests a better guide on how they should dress up for your party. They key to deciding on a theme is to consider your resources and that of your guests as well. Do not go for anything elaborate if either you or your guests will not be able to meet it.

Plan your food and wine menu ahead of time!

Follow a solid timeline for your party

Time is always an indispensable factor to the success of any party. It doesn’t matter if it’s a formal or informal one. If you want to make it an enjoyable one, free from stress and other worries, managing a solid timeline is essential. It’s especially the case with a Halloween party. Lots of people will be hosting the same kind of event. So the first thing you should do is notify your guests at least 4-6 weeks prior. Don’t forget to ensure an RVSP deadline. Finalize your wine and food list as early as possible. Purchase the “essentials” at least a month before. There is little room for compromise on “essentials.” Last but not the least, prepare your decor ahead of time and put everything in place the night before the event. ^_^
