Dexter Themed Halloween Party For Adults

The Dexter themed Halloween Party for adults is a party theme cooked up by Olivia of Wisconsin. She writes that creating a Halloween party theme from a favorite crime drama show is a great way to get party ideas. Here's are her ideas and a few of ours too!

Dexter Halloween Theme Party For Adults

These Halloween party ideas come from the show Dexter, aired on Showtime.

Dexter Themed Decorations

For the Dexter themed party decorations start with fake blood splattered wall art. Use plastic sheeting like the type you find at home improvement stores and just splatter it with red paint.

For food, use plastic Barbie doll parts as decorative toppings to cupcakes. You can also make jello shots with any flavored red jello and call them "victim sliders". Other food ideas would be to include doughnuts to represent the police force food and Cuban dishes to represent Miami style food.

Dexter Themed Halloween Party Games

The games really make this party theme. Games could include trying to figure out who is Dexter and who is the next murder victim. Guests would choose an identity card out of a hat when they arrive at the Halloween party. They'd learn if they are the next victim, if they are Dexter, or if they're just a bi-stander.

You'd have to make up one clue and one alibi for each person. Link the clues together. For example, four different cards could have the same alibi stating that the four clue holders were all together the day of the murder.

The game would be like a mixture of 20 questions and clue. The detectives try and save the intended victim while catching a murderer.

Dexter Themed Halloween Party For Adults Editor's Note: We love the idea of a murder mystery party. If you're clever, you can write your own script for this. If you need a little help, you can get a book on how to write your own murder mystery. mystery writer's course. It comes with a 60 page step-by-step guide and conference calls with a professional mystery writer to help you finalize you plot!

Mystery games are a really cool idea for a unique Halloween party! Since you may specifically want the Dexter theme, or some other crime drama theme, writing yourself might be a very exciting twist to your party plot!

John of Jacksonville, FL also shared his ideas for a Dexter True Blood party theme.

Have a themed party around favorite "Halloween" type tv shows that include shows like True Blood and Dexter. For True Blood, serve red party drinks to act as the "blood". Party goers could dress up as characters from the show.

For Dexter, have a section of the house decorated as Dexter's "kill room". Cover all walls and floor with clear plastic sheets. Have a long table set up in the middle of the room with drinks/food. You could decorate the plastic by splattering red point to look like blood.
