10 Creative Halloween Party Ideas and Recipes

10 Creative Halloween Party Ideas

I can’t believe Halloween is this Saturday. Where has October gone? More than ever, my little guy is interested in this spooky holiday – and while I can’t say I’m the biggest Halloween fan, I never say no to a party! Every year, we throw a small gathering with themed drinks and food and watch a few holiday classics, including It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. 

We usually trick-or-treat at our neighbours doors and since our kiddos aren’t in it for the long haul, we retreat home to munch on a few more treats and dance to the Monster Mash. This year, my son is dressing up as Batman and my daughter will be a purple fuzzy bat! I can only imagine their excitement on the day of, considering they love playing dress up in general.

When it comes to Halloween parties a touch of scary and drama go a long way, as does traditional orange and black colours. I have never been drawn to the gory, so I’ll leave it to the zombie-fans! I’ve rounded up some fun, light-hearted Halloween treats and decor inspiration to add some flair to your Halloween party this year.  Have fun and don’t scare the daylights out of your friends and family, okay?!

  1. Love these ideas Emily! Looks like we’re getting some rain on Halloween so it looks like we won’t be trick or treating and our party will be indoors.

    Passing these ideas on! Hope you’re having a great day!


  2. Every year we pull out the cardboard monster we made a few years ago and put him in the front window. My hubby puts a light behind him to shine through the tissue paper in his mouth and eyeballs and he looks so awesome!
