Halloween is fast approaching! It is one of my favorite holidays because it’s not really a holiday at all. It’s just a time for fun and silly things both kids and adults can enjoy. Below I’ve collected some of my favorite appetizers, snacks, creepy cocktails, decoration ideas and desserts for Halloween. Hope you enjoy and make your Halloween party a spooky and silly time to remember!
Let’s start with Apps and Snacks!
Spiderweb Nacho Cheese Spread. Talk about taking a classic 7 layer dip and giving it a fun Halloween twist!
Lobotomy Loaf. Now this is creepy, yummy and super fun and with zombies being all the craze this year you can’t miss with this dish.
Spiderweb Soup with Creepy Crawlies. Not only tasty, but easy to make and such a great treat to put in front your guests to start the party off right. Or serve it to your kids on Halloween for a fun twist on a classic dinner!
Toasted Curry Pumpkin Seeds. Cute use of a pumpkin and tasty treats inside.
A party just isn’t a party without some creepy cocktails! See below for some great ideas for both adults and kids.
Black Magic Martini. Now this is a cocktail that people will be talking about for years. Not only clever with great ingredients but the dried ice and spider on top give this a fabulous spooky finish. My personal favorite!
Cherry Root Beer Cocktail. A tasty treat for any adult. Substitute Grenadine syrup and use root beer instead of Coke to make this a kid friendly cocktail.
Candy Corn Cocktail. Such a pretty cocktail to display on any table as guests arrive. Bright, fun and very festive!
Frankenstein Bubbling Lime Brew. Fun and kid friendly!
Easy Black Licorice Spider Punch. Kid friendly punch with added touches such as licorice spiders and a black sugar rim make this a fun and festive way to celebrate with guests of all ages.
What makes a party really festive? Gotta have the decorations and desserts!
Jack-O-Lantern Stand-Ups. These are great way to greet guests and take fun pictures as they arrive or leave. I found these at Oriental Trading where you also can get 2.5% cashback when you start your online shopping at SavingStar’s Cashback Mall.
Boo Halloween Banner. Great decoration and no need to even make it yourself. Etsy.com has it for only $15 bucks!
Mummy Jars. Now these were one of my absolute favorites. Easy to make and you can get mason jars at Shindigz.com for only $0.99 along with 6.5% cashback on everything you buy when you start your online shopping at savingstar.com. Use SavingStar’s exclusive coupon code STAR at checkout to save $12 off $85 or more!
Dinner Ghosts. Hang these just about anywhere to add a spooky scene. They are so easy and only require a balloon, cheese cloth and a string to hang them!
Fang Straws. Add these to any creepy cocktails and have guests grab them as a party favor when they walk in. You can even put their names on the back for a personal touch.
Eye’ll Be Seeing You napkin holders. Not only are these an adorable way to decorate your table but guests can munch on the chocolate after dinner.
Sweet and Spooky Halloween Votives. I love the idea of having them look pretty in the sunlight but with a spooky surprise when the lights go down. You can also get your mason jars at Shindigz.com along with other necessary items to recreate these and get 6.5% cashback along with $12 off $85 or more using code STAR at checkout when you start your online shopping at savingstar.com.
Candy Corn Pretzel Hugs. So easy and so cute plus another great way to use Hershey’s Kisses. My advice is put them in a hand made goodie bag with each guest’s name attached or just throw them in a festive bowl.
Ghoulishly Glowing Cupcakes. When I saw these I flipped that someone figured out a way to make cupcakes glow. Doesn’t get any more Halloween than glow in the dark ghosts you can eat!
Ding-Dong The Witch is Dead Cupcakes. Another one of my favorite cupcake recipes and these are easy to make.
