Ideas! Come at me!

In Australia we don’t celebrate Halloween here, but every time I have been over to America I always make sure that when I do head over there I go there during Halloween… It is actually one of my favourite holidays, I wish we had a bigger celebration of it over here. Although it has been picking up.

However, I sillyily decided to host a Halloween party and people actually want to come. So now I have to come up with some Halloween idea! Can any of you help me? I’ve managed to come up with a few ideas:

  • Jelly with snakes or some kind of eyeballs (edible)in it.
  • Toilet paper rolls with eye shaped holes in them and glow stick, putting them in random parts of the house/garden.
  • I have these table top decorations.

Also, if any of you know of any “traditional Halloween” food or drinks please let me know! I have absolutely no idea in that regard.

  1. Jack-o-lanterns are a Halloween custom. Usually people decorate with witches, zombies, monsters, ghosts, spider webs (fake, not real), headstones… anything that’s supposed to be scary. Mostly, I think, Halloween is about the candy. So serve candy. Variety is important, though, because when you’re going house to house trick-or-treating, you’re going to get an assortment of candy. I’m not sure about drinks, though. Maybe you can find something that resembles blood (or you can add food dye to something) and call it blood. Just don’t try to serve people real blood. Trust me, that does not go over well and then you have the police bothering you day after day after day about where you got it, whose blood is it, blah blah blah, the questions never end. My God, that was such an annoying time.

    Anyway, if you don’t only want to serve candy, you can try baking cookies in the shape of pumpkins or ghosts. You could also make cupcakes decorated with Halloween colors (orange and black being the dominant colors). I actually found a webpage with some good information on Halloween. The link’s below. You might get some good ideas from it, or at least draw some inspiration from the pictures. You could also search the web for Halloween recipes (I linked one page for you below; and it has drinks!) Good luck with your party! 🙂
