Jack o' lanterns are a must-have for a Halloween party
Make your own creepy cookies
Turn your front lawn into a graveyard
Sure, you can just empty a couple of bags of chips and Halloween candies into bowls, but one of the best parts of a Halloween party can be serving up some frightening food to your friends. Here are some ideas for Halloween treats that may lure your guests from the graveyard to your front door.
- Brain Jello: No one in their right mind would want to eat a brain you might think, but if it's delicious wobbly jello in the shape of brain, they might think twice. All you need for this one is some jello and a mold.
- Creepy Cookies: If you like to bake spice up the sweets by making your own cookies and decorating them with spooky scenes or cutting them into fun halloween shapes like bats, witches and more!
- Drink up!: Pick out pops that are orange, or make a fruit punch with a few extras in it - like floating fingers, eyeballs or other ghoulish extras! If you want to go the extra mile, serve it all up in a cauldron.
An easy way to start decorating for a Halloween party is to buy a big bag of cotton balls and start making spiderwebs. it's as easy as pulling them apart, so you don't have to leave any corridor un-creepy. It's also a good idea to hit up a dollar store or party supplier for extras like skeletons, spiders, and even severed limbs. If you want it to look like a proper haunted house, try putting some gravestones in the front yard! If you make them yourself you can choose exactly who goes in the ground.
Last but not least, no Halloween party is complete without a pumpkin! You might need your parents and friends to help you with this one since a trip out to the pumpkin patch and digging out the goopy gross insides can be a two person job. If you want to cheat you can buy plastic jack o' lanterns or carving kits to show you how to do it.
If you're the one throwing the party, then you can make the rules, and no one should be getting into this fright night without a rock solid costume. Checking out each other's costumes is the absolute best part of Halloween, so make sure that you've got that part planned out beforehand and don't forget to take pictures - you may never wear that costume again!
Add a scary soundtrack to your night and you're ready to have the best Halloween party yet!
