Your Questions About Halloween Food Games

Nancy asks…

How do I get people to come to my Halloween Party?

I invited 100 of my closest friends and so far, I only know of 8 that are comming. It is BYOB. Do you think that is scaring them away? I promised them it’ll be fun and ask their opinion on food and party games. What would lure them in more?


Yeah I’m actually dealing with the same issue.
I sent out an Evite (which I customized-Scary Look), setup polls for answers to my questions, and said on the Evite “Win a prize for Scariest costume!” Having “RSVP ASAP, space is limited” on your invite may help too!
Good Luck!! :0) Happy Halloween!

Susan asks…

How much does a full Halloween Party cost?

its 10 guys, 10 girls. all 13-14. I want to have a halloween party that will live on forever. How much do u think it would cost? take into consideration food. drinks. decorations. games. prizes.


Lets see:

Food for 20 at say about $10 per person (Chips, dip, cookies, soda, juice) = $200
Lighting and decor – $200, that will get you some table misters, tabletop gravestones, flame or other spooky lighting, lenticulars, and all your paper products for eating off ofetc. Add more if you want to set up outside, or want some animated props.

Games / Prizes – $50 – $100

So about $500 for a spectacular party.

Mandy asks…

What to do at a teenage Halloween sleepover?

My 17th Birthday is on Halloween and four of my best friends are sleeping over in my house.I would like for it to be Halloween themed.The room we are having it in is small considering there is going to be five people in all.What kind of games,food,movies etc would be good ?


Good movies to watch
scary: paranormal activity
funny:scary movie (keeping in mind this one it rude)
games to play:the maltesser game you have one and have to to put at the top of your forehead and roll it onto your mouth.. Truth and dare is a great one to do.
Food just snacks- crisps,chocolate fizzy drinks etc.
But the scary movies are probs the best thing to do. Have fun ;)

Carol asks…

How did halloween start, and is it evil?

My mum won’t let me go trick or treating tonight because she thinks that Halloween is evil.
Is it?


It is true that Halloween is largely a recycled pagan celebration (I don’t see any reason to hide it)—just look up “Halloween” in any Encyclopedia.

For instance, the Encarta Encyclopedia says: “Many of the ancient peoples of Europe marked the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter by celebrating a holiday in late autumn. The most important of these holidays to influence later Halloween customs was Samhain [actually pronounced more like sah-win or sah-veen; it means “Summer’s end”] a holiday observed by the ancient Celts, a tribal people who inhabited most of Western and Central Europe in the first millennium BC . . . Samhain began at sundown on October 31 and extended into the following day. According to the Celtic pagan religion, known as Druidism, the spirits of those who had died in the preceding year roamed the earth on Samhain evening. The Celts sought to ward off these spirits with offerings of food and drink. The Celts also built bonfires at sacred hilltop sites and performed rituals, often involving human and animal sacrifices, to honor Druid deities.”

And so, we find that the ancient Celtic culture believed that on the evening of October 31, the barriers between the human and supernatural realms were weakened, and it was thought to be the most favorable time for divinations and fortune telling (for the Druids to make predictions about the future). I read that during the celebration, they wore costumes, typically consisting of animal heads and skins, and this seems to be where the tradition of dressing up for Halloween came from.

Well, I like history, so let me just give you a bit more. By A.D. 43, the Romans had conquered the majority of Celtic territory. The Romans then blended local Samhain customs with their own pagan harvest festival honoring Pomona, goddess of fruit trees. Some scholars have suggested that the game of bobbing for apples derives from this. Some believe bobbing for apples was originally a form of divination (fortune telling) to learn of future marriages—the first person to bite an apple was predicted to be the first to marry in the coming year. And there are other ideas about bobbing for apples regarding its pagan origin.

And then the Catholic church got a hold of the holiday. As the Encarta Encyclopedia further says: “The Roman Catholic Church often incorporated modified versions of older religious traditions in order to win converts. For example, Pope Gregory IV sought to replace Samhain with All Saints’ Day in 835. All Souls’ Day, closer in spirit to Samhain and modern Halloween, was first instituted at a French monastery in 998 and quickly spread throughout Europe.”

And so, in an attempt to Christianize this pagan event with a church-sanctioned holiday, they moved the old Christian feast of All Saints’ Day (a day commemorating all the “saints” of the church) from May 13 to November 1. And November 2 was later made All Soul’s Day (a day to commemorate all the departed who are thought to be in purgatory). And so October 31 was set aside as a holy evening, known as All Hallows Eve (“hallows” speaking of the holy ones or saints—the evening before All Saints’ Day), which then became “Halloween.” And churches began staging pageants in which people dressed up as saints or demons—which seems to have added to the dressing up tradition.

Trick-or-treating most likely dates back to early All Souls’ Day parades in England. During the festivities, poor people would beg for food. Families would then give them pastries called “soul cakes” in return for their promise to pray for the family’s dead relatives. Children eventually took on this tradition, known as “going-a-souling” or “souling” and they would visit houses in their neighborhood for drinks, food, and money (a practice mentioned in Shakespear’s writings).

OK, what about jack o’ lanterns? Well, people have been making jack o’ lanterns at Halloween for centuries. The practice originated from an Irish folktale about a man nicknamed “Stingy Jack.” He was not allowed into either heaven or hell because of his trickery. So, according to the story, the devil gave Jack a glowing piece of coal placed inside a hollowed-out turnip to light his way at night as he roamed the face of the earth. He was later called “Jack of the Lantern” which was shortened to “Jack o’ Lantern.” So, in Ireland and Scotland, people began to make their own versions of Jack’s lanterns by carving scary faces into large turnips and placing them in windows or near doors to frighten away Stingy Jack and other wandering evil spirits. Immigrants from these countries brought the jack o’lantern tradition with them when they came to the United States, and they soon found that pumpkins made much better jack o’lanterns than large turnips.

It was pretty much rejected at first, but the holiday had a rebirth in America between the late 19th and early 20th centuries because of the influx of Irish immigrants (many fleeing Ireland’s potato famine) who came over and helped popularize Halloween traditions. They brought with them traditions that combined features of the Celtic and Christian holidays. But as belief in many of the old superstitions waned during the late 19th century, Halloween was increasingly regarded as a children’s holiday.

Lisa asks…

What should I give the football boys for Halloween?

My nephew plays for a Jr. Pee Wees football team and I wanted to give them each all a halloween sack. They’re in the process of practicing for the playoffs where they’re playing in our state Stadium. Some of the boys need to watch their weight. They can’t go over 105lbs or they won’t play. I had an idea of putting a 12oz gatorade and a trail mix bar in a halloween themed sack. What do you think? Do you have any other ideas that I can include in the pack?


Instead of any kind of food that may jeopedize their playing weight. Try something like wrist bands or Gloves. Or just tell them when this is all over you will take them on a candy shopping spree because they missed out on halloween
…Not saying they will lose but if they know there is candy involed at the end for the time they are picking out their candy
the football game will be forgotten about

Ken asks…

Halloween Party questions!!!?

Okay so i’m 16 and i want to have a halloween party with my boyfriend, my friends and their boyfriends. I really want everyone to dance and have fun cause i have a strobe light and i want to make a good impression so my friends boyfriends can trust me. I want people to have fun WITHOUT alcohol. So i need things to make people dance and other ideas from teenagers that can make my party fun. oh and also how do i get back into my house when my mom has the key and she is currently gone.


Fun music, great costumes, weird eyeball jello treats, tons of soda, black lights, smoke machines, or dry ice in beverages, test tubes for glasses, scary movies, have each wall/room have a theme of a scary “thing”, let people do what they do, because “making” someone do something isn’t always very fun. Be the example of what you would like to have happen i.e. First on the dance floor, conversation starter, keep it cool, have fun yourself. Have a guest weird guy, like a freaky clown or something that people can laugh at, gawk at, be freaked out at. Have a scary-food fight, Have do it yourself makeup set out for anyone who wants to use it. Scary story time. Balloons, pumpkins, plastic wrap. Bury a volunteer alive (safely). Karaoke. That’s a few ideas. Ask your neighbors if they have a key.

Your Questions About Halloween Makeup

Chris asks…

Halloween Gypsy Makeup?

I’m going as a gypsy for Halloween and I wanted to do dark dramatic eyes, but I also considered a red lip. Is there a way I can do both of these without overloading my face with makeup and looking…trampy? Or should I stick to one? :)


I think you CAN do both of those without looking “trampy”.. Its halloween! Your allowed to go all out girl! An I love the idea of dark dramatic eyes and red lip.. Here’s a pic of a beautiful combination of both with a sexy hint to it:

I love this:

She has the dramatic dark eyes with a hint of red eye shadow around it to accent the red on her lips which really makes her lips POP! And the two together doesn’t look trampy at all =)

I hope this can help you out! Good luck! =)

Mandy asks…

How do you remove Halloween makeup?

I’m working in a haunted house for Halloween and in previous years I’ve never had a good way to remove the makeup quickly and without doing damage to my skin, and the makeup is usually very difficult to remove, any simple solutions?
What I really meant was good specific products, that won’t be harsh on my skin.


How to Remove Halloween Makeup

1. Faux Blood

Slather on a layer of shaving cream to remove dried faux blood quickly,” says Tracey. Rub thoroughly and rinse in the shower. Still left with a pink tint? “Before applying anything to the skin, prep the surface with Derma Shield,” Tracey suggest. “The foam will prevent dye from seeping into your skin.”

Beautylish recommends: Lather Almond Shave Cream.

2. Face Paint

“Products containing a lot of oil will break down makeup and paint quickly without damaging the skin,” says Tracey. “Look for a face wash containing isopropyl myristate, which is a synthetic oil and will get rid of heavy makeup.” For sensitive skin, Tracey suggests trying classic baby oil, which will take longer to dissolve face paint but is a lot gentler on your complexion.

Beautylish Recommends: Burt’s Bees Nourishing Baby Oil.

3. Fake Tattoos and Body Pieces

When it comes to larger areas on the body, Tracey suggests getting hands-on, literally. “Using a set of scrub gloves is key,” she says. “It helps with fake tattoos a lot!” For other glues, Tracey warns against trying to peel them off. “It is dangerous to yank adhesives of any kind without first applying an oil,” she explains. “If you don’t have oil, some nail polish removers contain acetone, which is fine to use on your skin and will remove stains.”

please rate both on a scale of 1-10 1 being not scary and 10 being extremely scary


The first one is just bizarre, which is always scary, and it would scare the crap out of me if I saw it in my house, so it gets a 9. The second is really creepy but it wouldn’t scare me immediately on Halloween, so it gets a 5.

Halloween Mask Papers?

I am trying to look for Halloween‘s Evil clown or something that are more scarier than usual. It’s only print out the papers so I can make those masks… like this…

Yeah, where can I find those?


It’s hard to find cut out masks on the Internet that aren’t too small. I looked around, but all were either really corny, small, not scary, or unrealistic.

I think that you should go to Halloween stores in October or September, and then pick out a mask from there. That way, you will have a better variety. They aren’t expensive either.

If you really want to get a head start, try this website:

Happy Valentine’s Day!

The problem is I can’t wear glasses under a mask.

How can I see? (I can see, just blurry when I want to see far away)

Please help?


Well you could wear them over the mask, but it might be hard. It’s hard to pick a costume without masks, I should know, I also have glasses! XD But I usually just face paint it on, I’m not sure about your problem, did you try putting your glasses over the mask?

Mandy asks…

were to get or how to make a scary halloween mask?

Ebay and Amazon have a huge selection of masks but you may struggle to get delivery in time now.

You could try a local joke or costume hire shop.

Alternatively (if you’re really stuck) you can get printable masks like these:

Your Questions About Halloween 2

Robert asks…

Halloween town in Kingdom Hearts 2?

so im playing Kingdom Hearts 2 but i have a problem. Im in halloween town and in chapter 2. I’m looking for the presents that were stolen from santa’s workshop where are they and how do i get them?


Halloween Town

Dr. Finkelstein is still toying around in his lab, when an unknown attacker steals his new invention. Jack is too busy collecting presents when you arrive. Jack will join you shortly. Leave Santa’s cozy home and go upstairs through the Toy Factory to Wrapping. Mischief!

Boss Battle – Lock, Shock, and Barrel
The 3 miscreants are messing up Santa’s workshop. They need to be taught a lesson. Chase them around the room, focusing on one evil child at a time. Take down their hit points, then use the Reaction Command on the boxes to trap them. Retaliation comes in the form of toys being tossed at your head and mini-tornado spins. The kids are so small and quick, they will probably never even touch you. Lock up all 3 to get some answers.

From Santa’s House, travel all the way back to Yuletide Hill and then through the Hinterlands to Halloween Town Square. On the way you will battle Neo Shadows, Toy Soldiers, and Trick Ghosts among others. There should be no new chests if you got them all on the first run. In the town square, you will have to defeat Wight Knights and some other Heartless to get back 4 presents. Just keep killing Heartless and picking up the boxes when they drop. Sora obtains the Present item here. After a short scene, you’ll be back in Santa’s shop. Return to where you fought Lock, Shock, and Barrel and talk to the elf. In this event, shoot the boxes with X as fast as you can. Reload with Triangle, and shoot the kids if they get in the way. No seriously. Once 100 presents are set, Sora receives the Decoy Presents item. Save your game here, and talk to Santa when readily equipped.

Boss Battle – The Experiment
The Experiment is a rather twisted design of a robot that can reform itself into different configurations. It will begin with simple attacks, including pounding the ground in front of itself to create damaging waves. It will also use its other hand to suck you towards it and then let loose a laser from its face. The best way to avoid this is to actually jump towards the robot and be above its head attack while it does this move. After doing enough damage, the arm will fall off and walk around like a slinky, creating shockwaves. Stay away from it and focus on the main body. Hurt the body some more, and The Experiment will split into 3 separate pieces. The skull and torso portion will spin at you, while the arm walks around and the head spits triple lasers at you. Run up to the torso and use Kick Spring.

This will reconfigure the robot into a new form. In this form, the robot will use the head on its hand to shoot that triple laser at you. Keep attacking it, and using the Reaction Command when it splits into 3 parts. Watch your health, the torso’s spin attacks can catch up with you quickly. Scrapping this failed experiment will give you the Decisive Pumpkin Keyblade.

Mandy asks…

Halloween party decorations?

Im having a halloween party in my house and want to have as many decorations as possible, very goth, but nothing cheap like sheet ghosts or anything like that. Please any sort of idea for decorating goth would be apreciated, if i like the stuff i may keep some of it up all year! :D
Oh and if you know where i could get any of these in vancouver b.c. that would be even better!


A cool idea would be to get a length of black lace and you could drape it over things. You could put it over windows, around lampshades (not on top, obviously), that sort of thing. I’m not familiar with Vancouver, but if they have an party stores, check around there closer to the holiday. Good luck!

Steven asks…

how to make scary homemade halloween decorations?

halloween is in 2 days. can you tell me how to make some decorations please.



Making halloween decorations can be easy and fun.

Here are a few that I made for this year:

Take some white garbage bags and a sharpie. Tie the two corners in knots, this will create a rounded top. Then turn the bag inside out and draw a face. Then hang it buy the door or a tree, and you have a ghost! You can make as many of these as you like.

You can also do something similar and take the orange bags and colour a jack-o-lantern face on them.

Another good idea is to take some cheese cloth, this is really affordable, usually only costs a buck for a lot of it. Then just hang it around your porch. Cut little strips into it so it will get blown around by any wind. This will create an errie atmosphere.

Take some cardboard, and get some old newspapers and tea bags. Get some glue and water and a paintbrush, put the newspaper on the cardboard. You can use this once it dries and is dyed by the teabags to cover your windows. Makes it look like an abandoned building.

Black garbage bags are great too, because you can put them up to cover doors and windows also, plus if you go to a dollar store you can get bugs and bats and some cobwebby stuff to put them over the door.

Lizzie asks…

HALLOWEEN PARTY- idea help :)?

On October 24 I am hosting a halloween party in my basement.There will be about 25 teens from age 13-15. My basement is NOT re-done. We have a few ideas so far, but anymore suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am in grade 9 if that helps. Also the walls are concrete I believe,so nothing that has to be strongly held on the wall. We can hang things from the ceiling, or tape things to the wall, or tie things around a few poles in out basement. Ideas on food items or recipes, or even great party planning websites would be awesome. I want a cool party, not one for people to complain about. haha. BUT anything at all will help. The party is in about 6 days, and we still need to buy a few more food things and decorations. THANKS SO MUCH !! :):)


1. Invite everyone to come in costume.
2. Go shopping! Use elaborate decorations, such as hanging ghosts, beware signs to put outside, alongside gravestones and caution tape. You can also include a fog machine: awesome and sets up the whole atmosphere! All of which can be found at a party store such as spirit or party city and even your local walmart.
3. Set the mood. Play various halloween music throughout the night. You can get halloween music just about anywhere.
4. Play different games.
- light as a feather stiff as a board
- bobbing for pumpkins: make sure they’re the minature kind! Put the pumpkins in a large clean container and fill it with water. Have everyone remove the apples with their mouth and not their hands.
- suck and blow (sounds very adult but its not!): use a playing card and have everyone line up in a boy girl pattern: female, male, female, etc. What you do is you suck the card and pass it to the person next to you. And sometimes it’ll drop and you kiss the next person.
- dart toss: make sure your guests are old enough to play safely. 1 person stands in front and throws 3 darts at a large piece of plywood that has balloons with surprises in them tacked to the plywood. Inside the balloons you can place gifts like coins, gag gifts or nothing at all. You can stick in small gifts, candy, coins and a grand prize written on a piece of paper in a balloon. Some balloons can just say “boo”. After 3 shots whether you hit or miss, it’s now the next persons turn.
- musical chairs: play musical chairs with your favorite Halloween songs. You can also decorate the chairs if you’d like. The idea is to always have 1 less chair than the amount of players. Everyone walks around the chairs placed in a circle. Have someone stop the music once in a while, and when it stops everyone has to find a chair. The person left standing is out of the game and has to remove a chair. You then restart the music. You could give a small prize to the last person.
- mummy wrap: the group is divided into groups of 2.1 person is the mummy, and the other is the wrapper. The wrapper is given a roll of toilet paper to wrap their mummy. The object of the game is to be the first person to wrap the mummy with all the toilet paper. On the word “go” each team then wraps the other person with toilet paper (adults be sure kid’s do not cover their mouth, nose, or eyes!). Stick hands out in front so that hands do not get wrapped to the bodies. Then have the people carefully unwrap each other, and play again, using the same toilet paper.
- pumpkin bowling: roll a pumpkin like a bowling ball and knock over bowling pins. Get a small or medium sized pumpkin and remove the stem. Use plastic soda bottles with a cup of water (secure top) for bowling pins. Place the soda bottles about 20 feet away. Each player rolls the pumpkin and tries to knock over 10 soda bottles. Play as many times as you want, or until you run out of prizes.
- break out the ouiji board and tarot cards.
5. Serve pizza sprinkled with parmesan cheese with ten drops each red, green and yellow food coloring and put over pizza for a “moldy” look. Also serve punch in a witch’s cauldron with dry ice, maybe add a fake spider or eyeballs. As for dessert, serve pumpkin pie or pumpkin ice cream with candy corn sprinkled on top.
6. Have a best costume contest. You can also get creative and use different categories such as best homemade, scarriest, funniest, etc.
7. Its showtime! Rent several scary movies, turn down the lights and pass the popcorn. Rent movies depending on the age, you would want age appropriate films for everyone. Suggestions? Mix in some of the hot newer scary movies (like the strangers, wrong turn, etc.) with a classic or two (halloween, nightmare on elm street).
8. Have everyone tell scary stories. Get creative!
9. Make goodiebags and send them home with your guests. They can be filled with whatever you’d like. Candy, spider rings, fake blood, etc.
10. You can also set up a haunted house if you’d like.
11. Last but not least, take pictures so you’ll remember the great time you had!

Good luck with the party :]]

Paul asks…

need ideas for halloween decorations ,can any one help me?

i am making a shelf with different sized jars hanging from it for a halloween party, i need different ideas on things to put in the jars, that will either scare or gross out the people looking at them ,i need ideas,for at the moment i am stumped


Cute idea! I would put those squishy eyeballs from almost any halloween store in some water that’s maybe died green or something…
You could put a heart in one of the jars, a brain, fingers, toes, rats ect.
I saw a jar at Spirit this halloween that automattically bubbles and changes colors, that would be cool too. You could also get some dry ice too stick in the water too make it fog and if you put dish washer soap with the dry ice it bubbles up and looks like a brain. Hope it helped Good Luck

What are some good ideas for coordinating Halloween costumes (couple)?

My boyfriend and I want to coordinate for Halloween but we have no idea what to do. We were thinking of Batman and Robin, Ash and Pikachu, stuff like that.

We’re both video game nerds, if that helps.

All suggestions are appreciated. :) Please and thank you!
Also, we don’t want to have to spend a lot of money. Something inexpensive would be great!


Mario and Peach, of course!
If that’s not to your taste, how about Sonic and Amy, or some other couple from the fabulous world of video games! If you’re less Nintendo, think of couple from your favorite saga.
Have fun!

Ideas For a Halloween Partyyy?

Heeyy :] soo my friends and i want to have a halloween party this yearrr, so im looking for some fun ideass?? the average age will be fourteen, most if not all of us are freshmenn. the space is pretty largee, in the attic of my friends new housee. (which is pretty hugee lolll) there will be people from a bunch of diff schoolss, its kindof a way to introduce our new friends to our old ones and so onn. is there any way to kind of get everyone to become friendss?? :] alsoo any ideas for decorr, foodd, anything at all would be awesomee. thankss :]


Although the fact that you addedd extraa lettersss to the end of most of your words annoys me, I’ll try to answer this, as there are so many awesome ideas out there. An attic? Is it creepy already, or would it need some spicing up? I suggest getting some window stick-ons with creepy things on them that make it look like the windows have shattered glass; get some fake cobwebbing from Walmart and string it up all over the place; make a banner that says HAPPY HALLOWEEN! On it and string it from one side of the room to the other, have blown-up orange and black helium balloons floating around the room, and hang up black streamers from the walls. For food and more decorating ideas, check out — there are SO MANY awesome ideas!
You can’t really make everyone friends, but you can try by playing some name games and stuff. Here’s a bunch:

Sandy asks…

What does “fun fact” mean exactly?

Is it a fact that was fun to learn or something?

(No dictionary defintions…)
I mean there’s a term that is “fun fact” And I want to know what that means…………….
I was asking if it was a fact that would be fun to learn


A fun fact is a humorous detail that gives a historical event a funny twist, as, for example, George Washington wore wooden false teeth; so one might joke that he looked forward to Halloween, when he could send them out to be petrified.

Ellen joked about a new brand of corduroy pillows. They’re making Headlines.

Here’s a fun fact: I never saw so many books that start with, “Fun Facts”. That’s about everything from Turtles to Barracudas, Japan, and Stingrays

Richard asks…

Any halloween costume ideas?

I’m pretty sure this question has been asked 12,000 times, but I need some ideas for Halloween. I’m pretty much living on a college budget ( so next to nothing) and I just want to have fun when my friends and I go out. And, since Halloween is the holiday when being slutty is perfectly acceptable and okay, I figure I’ll go for that too. If anyone has costume ideas that fit this description, feel free to give me some ideas. The more, the better = D thanks!


Halloween costumes need not be scary. In fact, there’s a good chance that some of the most popular costumes will be based on Hollywood movies. A hot favorite is likely to be pirates, thanks to the release of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man’s Chest; and especially Captain Jack Sparrow. Other Disney movie characters will also be popular for Halloween costumes, such as Jack Skellington of Nightmare before Christmas, and for children Sulley Monster from Monsters Inc.

Apart from Disney movies, the return of Superman is sure to feed into the costume market for Halloween, and Harry Potter will no doubt be widely featured. Spiderman looks like being a common costume choice too.

Away from the movies, masks and costume generally seem to get more convincing by the year. The old frighteners such as Dracula and other vampires, zombies, ghouls will be given fresh facelifts for the new Halloween. Not every party gore wants to be a monster, though, and sexy costumes will undoubtedly be in demand again, even such vintage costumes as sexy nurses, chambermaids, belly dancers and sexy cops.

Daniel asks…

Is Halloween celebrated in the UK?

I’m American and realize this is a stupid question, but is it?

And if it is, what kind of things do you do on Halloween?


It is quite a recent addition to the UK, mainly due to the fact that many US programmes are shown on TV, over here, and there is often an interest in copying “fun” activities, seen in the “Soaps”.

As I read YA tonight, I see that there are several UK questions asking, “how old is too old, to dress up on Halloween”. However, it is not a very widespread custom just yet, but if it sells magazines, greeting cards, and costume hire, it will probably be widely reported as such, and likely encouraged.

Thomas asks…

Halloween party food?

I am having a Halloween party and was thinking of ideas for food and I’m stumped right now!

So far, I am making cookies and cupcakes with my kids.
Caramel popcorn balls with purple ribbon tied around.
And I am ordering a chocolate fountain.

I was thinking some things that were kind of gross for Halloween, but not totally nasty so no one even wants to eat them! Also, I want some “real food“, not just treats. Like easy finger foods that people can eat while walking around and talking.

Thank you so much!

Oh– and I also need drink ideas.


I will put a couple of links in the source box which I think you will find helpful. Included there are recipes for the following:

Caramel Apples
Halloween Monster Party Mix
Easy Halloween Party Mix
Hot Witch’s Cider
Pumpkin & Goblins Punch
Scary Frozen Bugs
Mummy Dogs
Halloween Burgers
Ghostly Eyeballs
Pumpkin Cake
Graveyard Cupcakes
Skeleton Bones

….and lots more!

Hope they help

Take care


Paul asks…

A disgusting Halloween recipe! food!?

Okay so I have a party to attend this Saturday and I can not figure out what to make!
The invite says to bring a disgusting food!
Give me some ideas! Please!
And it must taste good too!
serious answers pls!
I also do not eat pork.


I’m not sure if you would call it disgusting (although it may seem worthy of that judgement), but here’s an idea:HALLOWEEN RECIPE – HAND-BURGER

This fun idea will liven your Halloween party. A ground sirloin mixture is pressed into a hand-shaped cookie cutter, unmolded, baked and spread with ketchup to serve.

1 sliceWhite Bread, crust removed
1½ TbspMilk
½ tspSalt
⅛ tspGround Black Pepper
1Small Clove Garlic, minced
1 TbspKetchup
1 lbGround Sirloin
Non-stick Cooking Spray
Hand-shaped Cookie Cutter
6Small Dinner Rolls, or burger buns), sliced in half
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Set a wire cooling rack on a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.

Break bread into small pieces; place in a mixing bowl. Pour milk over bread and mash with a fork until it forms a paste. Stir in salt, pepper, garlic, and the 1 Tbsp. Ketchup. Add ground sirloin and stir to combine. Divide mixture into six equal portions.

Spray a hand-shaped cookie cutter with non-stick cooking spray. Press one portion of the mixture into the cookie cutter, being careful to press the meat into the finger area. Remove the cutter and use a spatula to transfer the Hand-Burger to the prepared rack. Repeat for remaining burgers. Bake for 12 minutes.

Spray an indoor grill pan (or skillet) with non-stick cooking spray. Heat over high heat. Remove Hand-Burgers from oven and place them onto grill pan. Sear on both sides and cook until done. Serve on dinner rolls and spread with ketchup.

Using ground sirloin will ensure that your Hand-Burgers remain in the shape of a hand when cooked. Fattier meats will lose their shape. Baking the burgers before grilling them allows for even cooking of the fingers.

This is something you can do the night before to have ready the next day: SPIDER BOWLS (great for holding dips or for serving soups in)…here’s a link for a pic and some dip recipes to put in them>>>

Another great idea that can be done ahead of time>>Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs (or can be made into eyeballs, too…just read the comments below the pic for how to)>>

For beverages…consider doing blood-rimmed glasses using Karo light corn syrup and red food coloring…here’s a link for the recipe and how they look (there’s even a Vampire Elixir to put in them)>>

Don’t forget to add some vampire teeth on the table where glassware will be displayed for effect.

Mark asks…

Help on a Halloween Party?

Has anyone got any good ideas for a teenager Halloween Party. Thnx


Hold a halloween party at your house.
Decorate with pumpkins outside of your door piled up, and get cobweb spray for on your ceiling then put plastic spiders on them, dim the lights and play good music like a normal party, but have halloween type food (you can get loads at supermarkets around this time) – just get cakes with halloween designs on, get a big bowl and fill it with fruit punch like they do on films for prom and stuff, get loads of paper cups and bowls with halloween designs on, toffee apples etc.
If you like having fun then you could buy a halloween cardboard cutout (a big cardboard thing with a place for somebodies head to go so they can get their photo taken), you can do apple dunking, lead it out into your garden and have fairy lights around with skeletons on a picnic bench or something.
Tell everybody to come fancy dress as something halloweeny (emphasise that they have to be dressed up cause sometime people just wear a dress then put on some bunny ears). If youre an older teenager then go to a fancy dress shop and get a costume for a nurse/bumble bee/vampire (basically the slut look haha) or just go as a cute vampire (like twilight characters) or a cat.
Make cute invitations with pumpkins and stuff drawn on.
Tell your parents to go out for the night to their friends house or something – if you have an older sibling then say they can stay upstairs to keep and eye on things. Or your parents could just stay upstairs.
If youre not allowed one in your house then ive pretty much wrote a load of unuseful stuff, but you could hire a place or just have a garden party, persuade a friend to hold it at their house, or go to the beach and have a halloween type barbeque, go to a local park and play hide and seek in the dark (i did that last year and it was actually so fun) then have a picnic in the dark…

Nancy asks…

Fun Halloween booth ideas?

I need ideas for an awesome booth that is creepy but not to creepy because the carnival is for kindergartners to 7 seventh grade also it can’t be too expensive
Also it can’t take too much time and only two people are working the booth


Lots and lots of spiderwebs, some mini trash bag ghosts, strobe light, eerie music. You can make dummies by taking clothes, stuffing them with newspaper or hay and setting them on chairs. Can be headless, or using a stocking for the head and droop it and put a hat on it, making it look dead.
