Halloween party decorations

Halloween isn't just for kids anymore. Grown-ups -- eager for a bit of fun as the days get darker -- can join in, throwing their own Halloween parties. Keys to taking this fun and cheerful holiday from children's hour to cocktail hour are a touch of restraint, a bit of bravado and -- more than anything else -- a sense of humor. Here are some festive and spooky items to help put together a tasteful Halloween party. We won't tell if you eat all the candy corn. --LARA EWEN. Special to Newsday
