Finally for the dessert, my favorite thing to make is spider cupcakes. You can use any recipe for the cupcakes, but after baking and frosting, coat the cupcakes with black sanding sugar and add red and white candies for the eyes and mouth. To finish, use licorice to act as the spiders’ legs.
After you’ve created a meal to die for and a spooky place to dine in, the last step of party planning to prepare for the games.
There are many websites containing information and ideas on Halloween-themed party games and of course, Halloween charades is a simple and easy idea for a party. But the biggest part in planning the games is planning the candy prizes.
Candy prizes can as simple as throwing a mixture into a paper bag and decorating it, but I like to make colorful candy crackers. Modeled after British Christmas crackers, these prizes are made by wrapping orange or black crepe paper around toilet paper tubes that are filled with candy.
After tying the ends with twine, you can decorate the candy crackers however you wish and your guests will surely have a great time opening them at the party. I also like to make fake prizes out of a few candy crackers so guests will never know if they’ve won a trick or a treat.
With the right combination of décor, food, and fun it’s easy to entertain guests for the holiday. And if you manage to spook them in the process, it makes the Halloween event even more rewarding.
