Halloween  Back to Events

This Halloween, invite kids and adults to a monster bash. Welcome guests into your haunted house decorated with fake spiderwebs, plastic spiders, black lights, dripping candles and witches’ hats. Turn up the music and let guests groove to Halloween hits such as “Thriller,” “Monster Mash” and “Ghostbusters.”

No Halloween party is complete without carving pumpkins. Check out our instructions for How to Carve a Pumpkin, then have guests assist youngsters with their creations. For a twist on traditional pumpkin carving, set out a selection of small pumpkins and gourds along with craft supplies such as paint, glue, pipe cleaners and pom-poms. Let guests make their own Halloween-inspired decorations. Craft a few sample decorations before the party to inspire your guests.

Serve up yummy delectables that treat—not trick—guests’ taste buds. For a tasty take-home snack that resembles a witch or monster hand, stuff candy corn (for witches) or gumdrops (for monsters) into the fingers of clean latex gloves and fill the rest of the gloves with popcorn, pretzels or other nibbles. Tie the ends of the gloves with orange and black ribbon. Give your food creative, Halloween-inspired names. Guests get a kick out of sipping “witches’ brew” or “mummy potion” rather than plain old punch. For even more spine-tingling fare, check out suggestions from your neighborhood Publix.

Plenty of Pumpkin Hints

Discover these carving tips and design ideas that will help you put a grin on all your trick-or-treaters' faces.
  • Adapt party games for guests of all ages. To play Halloween charades, for example, write down characters from younger guests' favorite Halloween books and television shows and have them act the characters out.
  • Keep punch cold with this "icky" ice ring: Arrange multicolor gummy worms in the bottom of a 6-cup ring mold and fill the mold with water or juice concentrate before freezing.
