Throwing a party for Halloween is the perfect excuse to over decorate and break out your favorite Halloween costume. You’ve already decorated your house for Halloween, so why not have a few friends over? It is easier than you might think to throw together the perfect Bone-chilling Bash! From a simply spooky menu to devilish decorations, I shared a few of my favorite Halloween party tips with Page Crawford on WNCN Today.
A sneak peak behind the scenes...
• DIY Decorations.
o Mummy lanterns. Simply wrap gauze around mason jars, add googlie eyes and a candle and you have a perfectly spooky centerpiece. Psst – for Christmas swap the gauze for burlap, add brown pipe cleaners and a red nose and you have Rudolf lanterns.
o Adorable candy corn centerpiece. Fill your favorite glass vase with candy corn and ghost Peeps for the perfectly edible centerpiece.
• Healthy Snacks.
o Candy corn fruit salad. A fun and healthy single serving option for your guests.
o Snake wineglass markers. Wrap a rubber snakes around the stems of your wine glasses as creepy wine glass markers.
o Eyeball and bloody finger ice. Add creepy shaped ice to your favorite drinks.
• Kid Friendly Fare.
o Ghost sandwiches. Make your favorite sandwiches and you spooky cookie cutters to cut them into fun shapes for the little ones.
o Twisty Noodle coloring book. You can’t have a party without a few free printables from TwistyNoodle.com
