Halloween is just a week away and if you’re like us, you may be scratching your head wondering how to spend the 31st. Luckily, you don’t have to attend a large costume party or swap candy to embrace the season. There are plenty of creative ways to celebrate Halloween at home in your Lincoln apartment.

Host an Elegant Spooky Dinner Party

Whether you live with roommates, your partner, or family members, an elegant yet spooky dinner party sets the stage with Addams family vibes. First, make sure the table setting is refined with tastefully arranged Halloween accents. For example, create a centerpiece of dark purple flowers and black candlesticks. Be sure to arrange a menu filled with spooky but delicious items such as sweet potato gnocchi, dark chocolate cake, and Halloween-themed cocktails.

Movie Night via Netflix Party

Enjoy a scary movie night with a virtual twist by watching with long distance friends on Netflix party. Don’t forget to prepare all the movie night essentials—snacks, drinks, candles, and plenty of blankets. Then, link up with your besties and utilize the chat feature during the film’s scariest moments.

Halloween Cookie Decorating Contest
