Halloween Entertaining Ideas
Food & Beverages
If you are either hosting a Halloween dinner party for a small group of friends, or even a larger gathering for a bigger group of people, you’ll want to provide food that celebrates the theme of the holiday.
A perfect example of an easy-to-make food is Halloween Pasta, which is made in the shape of traditional Halloween symbols, like Jack-o-Lanterns and Bats. Fruit punch served in a punchbowl filled with dry ice makes for a eerily-interesting display on your buffet table, in addition to providing pre-made beverages for your guests (which makes your job as the hostess simpler, since it’s self-serve). For dessert, some of your best options are Cupcakes with Decal Toppings and Frosted Sugar Cookies, displayed on a Halloween themed tiered dessert stand.
From glow-in-the-dark skeleton balloons to tealight candle holders with bone-chilling vellum Halloween scenes for a haunting, late-night glow, there is an abundance of affordable and fabulous party decor items on the market. To embellish your dining table, create a spooky scene with creepy crawlers on a spider-web tablecloth.
When it’s time for your guests to leave the party, ask them if they dare to “Trick or Treat”. Provide your party guests with containers filled with an assortment of candy. Just because they might be grown-ups doesn’t mean they don’t still enjoy the same festivities that they did as kids.
