Halloween Parties

Halloween is a great time to host a party. Fall is a colorful season and makes decorating fun and easy. Witches, spiders, and ghosts, oh my! There are many themes available for your party for both adults and children. Go for something as simple as a "Come in Disguise" party or as elaborate as a Mystery Dinner Theater.

Party Foods

Whatever theme you decide to go with, be sure to plan some frightful foods and beverages. Halloween invites a great opportunity to be creative with food and decor. Some spooky treats and devilish drinks will go a long way towards the success of your party. Heavy hors d'oeuvres are generally a good way to go. Serve on a decorated table along with a "cauldron" (punch bowl) of potent witch's brew. Add some traditional chips in assorted varieties, dips, and raw veggies and your scary spread is complete!

Salsa Instructions

So quick and easy but visually effective. Put salsa in a holiday dish and sprinkle with sliced black ripe olives. The added sliced black olives give the salsa a nice new flavor.

It is a quick little trick that is just in time for this tricking and treating holiday.

Dish this devilish mixture up with healthy tortilla chips.

  4. Vienna Finger cookies

Directions:

  1. Follow the recipe for dirt pudding.
  2. Place the pudding in small, wide clear plastic cups.
  3. Use the Vienna Finger cookie for the headstone. Lace with tiny candy bones and skulls. (I found these at Dollar Tree).

Witches Fingers And Toes

Please check out the video for directions on these cool witches fingers. For my version, the bread stick dough is cut in halves for witches toes. The nails are almond slices died green. For the fingers, I sliced the halves of bread sticks vertically to make them thinner. The fingernails are almonds tinted red.

These breadstick fingers and toes make great dippers for the really creepy salsa!
