Spooky Halloween Party Tips

Honestly, I have never decorated my house much for Halloween. Don't get me wrong, I have always had a jack-o'-lantern on the front steps and maybe a few fake spider webs around the door, but I have never been into gory, graphic Halloween decorations. This year my daughter has motivated me to get into the spirit and host a small Halloween dinner party. While searching the web for spooky decorations and party ideas I became inspired by all of the creative people out there that can make Halloween eerie and mysterious without being overtly gory.

One of my favorite finds is definitely Love Manor's potion jar labels. I have decided to use these authentic looking labels on jars filled with colored liquids or oils and place them on my bookshelf. I also thought that these labels would look cute on a small glass jars filled with candy and used as a party favor.


To set the tone of the party, I plan to use Martha Stewart's template for mice silhouettes in the entry way. These creepy mice will definitely scare my guests when they walk up the stairs. If you don't have the time the cut out the mice, you can purchase the pre-cut silhouettes at marthastewart.com

Regarding the menu for my party, I plan to start off with creepy cocktails. To make these drinks, first rub the rim of the glass with lemon or lime juice, then dip the glass into black decorating sugar and finally add a black gummy spider. You can find the gummy spiders at Candy Warehouse.

For dessert, I plan to skip the tricks and give my guests a sweet treat. I absolutely LOVE the desserts from Fairytale Brownies. Their brownies are moist, chocolaty and delicious!! I am so excited for my guests to try them. As far as a the main entree, I am still trying to come up with a creative dish. I am playing around with the idea of vampire steaks (filets) with a red wine sauce. I am so glad that my daughter talked me into throwing a Halloween party because I have had so much fun planning it!
