Family Friendly halloween party?

Last year, I threw a huge adults only Halloween party (Carnival of Carnage). This year, the kids want in on the Halloween party too ( and to be honest, I'm ready for a more responsible type of party). Last year's decorations included lots of blood and gore. This year, I need to scale it back. Any thoughts on how to still throw a great party and have great decorations while keeping it family friendly (ages newborn-adult)? I want it to be still really cool for adults and not scare the kids. Plus I live in a townhouse now so the scale of my decorations has changed a bit. Any tips would be appreciated !

I think you'll have to leave gore out of it to make it family friendly, just swap it for spooky instead. We've hosted a family friendly party 3 years in a row, 4th this year. There's lots of interesting things for adults and kids alike without being too intense for young ones. People in costume will always have fun :) and obviously there's no reason why adults can't enjoy a few drinks.
My kids are little still, so we host at least one Halloween playdate before our own Open House. Here's a photo of some fun treats we set out for the kids - the drinks are a huge hit! :D
This year we will actually have 2 parties, one family party & another one where my kids get to invite some friends from school! We don't do big bday parties for our kids, so I finally convinced hubby that we should throw an extra Halloween party for that reason. Hey all the decor is up, so why not! :D
