Use pumpkins as your bowling ball and baby bottles for the pins. Fill the baby bottles with candy corn or another Halloween candy to weigh it down.

Decorate for Halloween. Place cobwebs in corners and use the colors of orange and black. Place fake spiders, bats and skeletons around the room. Decorate with pumpkins, witches and harvest items. Use strobe lights and creepy Halloween music. Decorate the food table with Halloween colors, cobwebs and spiders.

Place a haunted welcome sign for your guests in the front yard. Decorate it with cobwebs, fake spiders and other Halloween fun items.

Use some brewed items to add to the fun. Place hearty stew in a cauldron. Offer a selection of hot and brewed items such as hot cocoa, cider, teas and coffees.

Some other ideas are caramel popcorn, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, and green bean casserole.

caramel toffee dip in pumpkin with bat chips
Caramel Toffee Dip with Bat Chips
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • toffee bits
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix all ingredients except toffee bits together with hand mixer until smooth. Stir in about 1/2 a bag of toffee chips into the mixture. Serve in a hollowed out pumpkin. Sprinkle the top with remaining toffee bits. Serve with fruit or with bat chips like above. To make the bat chips, I just brushed tortillas with butter and then sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. Then I cut out the bat shapes with cookie cutters and baked until they were crispy.

Label your food with scary Halloween names such as fright night drink, witch's stew, Dracula's blood pudding, Frankenstein's franks, magic potion, etc.


haunted halloween tree with candy corn centerpiece

Spooky Halloween Tree - I created a spooky halloween tree centerpiece by spray painting some tree branches black. The branches I found had some old leaves on them, and I loved the look so I ended up spray painting those black too. I drew some bats out of posterboard and suspended them from the branches using fishing wire.

To put the look together, I wrapped the branches with clear plastic wrap and placed it in a glass vase. Then I poured candy corn all around the branches to fill the vase. I used black ribbon and a fun printable to finish it off.
