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.

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
