Spooky Tricks & Treats: Inside Our Halloween Party

by katie
This past weekend was our Halloween party we do every year for the kids. It gives them an opportunity to hang out, watch some movies and dress up in their costumes. I wanted to share it with you because I thought that you’d like to see the decor and the haunted menu. 😉

Here are a few pictures of our setup. I hope it inspires you to host your own goulish party!

The candy/haunted village display. (We made sure the candy was closest to the adults so it didn’t vanish.)

These cupcakes were super easy to decorate. The liners and the picks were from the Dollar Tree and the sprinkles came in an assortment from Aldi’s holiday section.

These rice crispy treats were super delicious. I used Pumpkin Spice marshmallows (also from Aldi) instead of normal marshmallows.

Can’t have a Halloween party without Hot Dog Mummies!!
They go in minutes so I’d definitely make a ton for a large party. Everyone loves them so they are a must and they’re really easy to make. I know they don’t have eyes like some you may have seen elsewhere,but realistically, they don’t last long enough to put in the extra effort. The kids didn’t seem to mind at all!

Rats are super creepy so it felt right to put them right next to the food. The smaller ones had sensors on them so whenever you went near them, they’d squeak.

A little demon in the corner adds a spooky touch. He, according to my nephew, just had to have a knife for that extra fear factor. 

This was the centerpiece of the main table where the adults sat. It wasn’t super over-the-top because anything more would have obstructed conversation. I created the floral arrangement with ribbon and floral stems from…you guessed it, the Dollar Tree. The orange in the vase is actually a piece of cloth to act as a filler.

There were a few other things that aren’t pictured like eyeballs and guts (spaghetti and meatballs). bobbing for apples and face painting.
The kids had a lot of fun. I can’t wait to do it next year!
Thanks for stopping by!
Do you have a party every year? What’s do you consider your traditions?

What a fun party! My older kids get together on Halloween at our house with their friends and then go hunting for candy. The younger ones just like the candy! 🙂
