Invite four to six adult friends over for an evening of Halloween-themed crafting and encouragement. Unlike last night's cardmaking party, tonight is open for knitting, crocheting, other papercrafts, sewing, feltmaking, dollmaking, polymer clay, and other fun crafts.
Serve a hot, wholesome dinner, then invite guests to spread out on your dining table (or in your living room if they're more comfortable knitting and crocheting there). Light a fire in your fireplace, serve wine, and put on a fun movie or music in the background. Visit while you create lovely items. At the end of the evening, serve dessert and admire everyone's creations (or progress thereon).
We're still keeping it fun and for the most part not too dreary. Energetic music (but not too loud for chatting) to keep people happy while they work on creating. Maybe try a few slower inspirational muse type songs too.
Serve a signature cocktail, then offer wine, decaf tea and coffee, and a variety of sodas for your hard working crafters.
