Throwing the best Halloween party in town comes with some consequences: deciding what to wear, how to decorate the house, what to serve, which playlist to choose.. Don’t worry, we have boo-tiful ideas for your party.
1) Halloween without a jack-o-latern wouldn’t be Halloween, don’t you agree? But we all know the mess of carving a pumpkin. If you don’t want to get your hands – and your kitchen – dirty, here are few suggestions for you.
- Stuffed Peppers
These cute orange peppers will help you to easily catch the Halloween spirit. Cut off the tops of the peppers with the help of a regular kitchen knife. Pull of the top, cut the seeds off and keep it to put it back on the top of the pepper. Remove seeds left in the pepper. These ones aren’t very spooky but you can use your knife to give any shape you want on the pepper. You can stuff them with any filling you want.
- Mandarin Pumpkins
All you need is a black permanent marker and dozens of mandarin. You can draw any face you want on the mandarin with the pen. You may want to spare these mandarins forever. They are too cute to peel.
- Grapefruits With Fruit Salad
These bone-chilling faces will sweeten up your party with their ingredients. You can use oranges as well as grapefruits. After carving the juicy fruit you can stuff it seasonal fruit salad. Your healthy snack is ready!
- Sweet Potato

2) Enough of pumpkin? Here are few more idea for your Halloween party.
- Carrot Eyeballs
This might be one of the easiest recipes for your party. Simply slice the carrots, put creme cheese and half of a pitted black olive on top of every slice. That’s it!
- Witch Broomstick
This one will be your guests’ favourite snack. You need sliced cheese, pretzel sticks and chives for the knot. For fringes, fold the cheese and cut it with the help of a knife or scissors. Roll the cheese around the stick and use the chive to keep the cheese around the stick.
- Ghost Boo-nanas
This fear-inspiring recipe will be perfect for the night. Cut the bananas half, insert the popsicle stick, dip it into melted white chocolate. Use wax paper to frozen the boo-nanas.
Spook-takular DIY Decoractions
You really don’t need to spend all your money buying Halloween decorations. With a little budget and limited time you can give your place a creepy look. Here are few DIY projects for your Halloween party.
- Balloon Ghosts
They are not spooky at all, but rather cute. Yet it’s one of the best and easiest decorating ideas. You can make two different versions of it. One with LED lights, which would make it more spooky, but you can just go with the balloons. If you prefer it with LED you have to first light up the LED and insert it into balloons. If you don’t want to use LED you can inflate the balloon. Use a fabric to cover the balloon. Don’t forget the black eyes! Tie fishing line round the balloon knot and hang it wherever you wish!
- Egg Cartoon Bats
Well, if you really want a frightening decoration this might not the one you are looking for. But they are so easy to make and boo-tifully hang from the chandelier, we couldn’t help ourselves to include it in our post. If you have egg cartoons in your fridge you can give it a try. Use scissors to cut the cartoon in shape of flying bats. Paint them with black paint. After paint is dried you can glue the ribbon on the top of the bat. Don’t forget to glue googly eyes as well.
- Paper Bag Lights
You can use this lightening for your walkway or as a centerpiece for your dinning table. If you think cuting or holing punch is difficult you can draw face on it.
- Bleeding Candles
This one will terrify your guest. But if you don’t cover the place you are going to make these candles you might be the one who terrifies at the end. Don’t forget to use parchment paper to cover your work area. You need red and white candles as many as you want. Light up the red one and drip goulish wax on the white ones. Finish up with nails and pins for a spooky look.
- Lollipop Ghosts
These spookily cute ghosts are super easy to make. A lollipop ghost for each of your guests! Two layers of tissue will help you to hide the colour of the lollipop underneath it. Wrap the candy with tissues and use an elastic band to cover it. Tie orange and black ribbons around the neck. Put two dots with a black marker. Your cute, sorry…. spooky ghosts are ready.
