Ideas for Hosting a Halloween Party

Drinks

There are so many options now for Halloween Party drinks I don’t even know where to begin.  Click here to check out an article about it in the Wall Street Journal.

Halloween Coasters

These coasters from Pier 1 make a cute addition when serving drinks.  Another fun serving idea is to cut a pumpkin in half and scrape out the insides.  Fill with ice and chill drinks in the pumpkin.

Pumpkin Chiller

Pumpkin Beer is a great choice at a Halloween Party!  Dogfish Head makes one of my personal favorites.

In the mood for wine instead of beer?  Try a sangria recipe dressed up with interesting things like gummy worms frozen in ice floating in it (click here for more ideas).

The Webtender has lots of drink recipes for Halloween.  Adding black vodka to a drink can make it ready for Halloween.

Spider Candleholders

These spider tealight holders from Pottery Barn add a fun twist to the table.

Pumpkin Paper Lantern

Hang several of these paper lanterns from Pier 1 around the house and outside (weather permitting).

Pumpkin Doghouse

Don’t forget about the pets.  :-)  This pumpkin house from World Market makes a great spot for your dog.
