Confession time: trick-or-treating wasn’t really my thing. While I enjoyed Halloween as a kid for the costumes and the candy, the idea of going to random houses and talking to strangers didn’t sit well with my introverted self. The pressure of getting compliments on my costume and the constant candy comparison in my pumpkin bucket was a bit overwhelming. However, adult Halloween suits me much better, where I can hang out with familiar faces, dress up, and indulge in treats without the door-to-door interaction.

Whether it’s a large Halloween bash or a cozy girls’ night, there are countless ways to celebrate Halloween that can rival, if not surpass, the memories of trick-or-treating. Personally, I’m planning on joining the viral ghost-painting trend while enjoying a spiked apple cider, surrounded by friends who appreciate my Barbie costume. If you and your pals are ready to embrace adult Halloween to the fullest, here are some girls’ night ideas to make the most of the spooky season.

1. Embark on a Ghost Painting Adventure

One of the cutest TikTok trends involves hand-painting mini-ghosts on thrifted paintings. Get in on the action by selecting a landscape painting from a thrift store with each friend and spend an evening crafting the most adorable Halloween decor by adding ghosts to the scene.

A couple of years back, our team experimented with tarot card readings, and the accuracy of the predictions still resonates with everyone. You don’t need to be an expert to read cards. Simply grab a deck, take turns drawing cards (remember to ask a question), and interpret them either using the guidebook that came with your deck or online resources like Biddy Tarot. If you’re up for an extra special girls’ night, hire a professional tarot card reader to peek into your future and the futures of your friends. Whether you go casual or professional, set the ambiance with mystical decorations and get ready to embrace your inner psychic on Halloween.

If ghost painting isn’t your style, fear not – there’s another delightful painting activity for a spooky girls’ night: painting pumpkins. Skip the usual carving tools and opt for small pumpkins to paint in any design you fancy. Stick to the classic orange pumpkins with black paint or get imaginative with multicolored pumpkins and paints.

The thrill of being spooked is the highlight of the Halloween season. If your friends share the same sentiment, gather them for a scary movie marathon. You can either go all out with a spooky charcuterie board and hard cider before the movie or keep it casual with popcorn and comfy loungewear.
