Easy Halloween Party Ideas

2. Comments

Can you believe  Halloween is this weekend?! I just finally got around to picking up costumes for the kids. Sienna is going to be Wonder-woman and Jaiden is going to be a pirate. I think this is the third time he’s a pirate there is something about Jack Sparrow though so I don’t mind too much. 

This year Halloween falls on a Saturday which for us means we get to hang outside with our neighbors for a bit longer and it’s not a party without some amazing food and a few cocktails for the adults doesn’t hurt either. 

Here are a few Easy Halloween Party Ideas that will leave you free to enjoy the neighborhood festivities this Halloween!

A few weeks ago Alyson of The Average Girl’s Guide reached out and asked if I’d write a guest post – my response ABSOLUTELY! I shook up a fun Halloween inspired cocktail that is easy to make and will be the toast of your cul-de-sac. So head to her blog for the recipe for my Spooky Berry Pomegranate Jello Martini

A dessert made up of Oreos and chocolate pudding I’m all in! What I love the most about this dessert is it’s also a fun DIY project for the kids where they can get creative and a little messy. Get the details here >>

Who doesn’t love pizza? These Mini Spider Pizzas are a smart, simple idea and again another great way to get the kids involved with a fun and tasty activity. The spiders are made out of black olives {genius!} Get the details here >>

I love incorporating a book whenever I can and a few years ago my kids fell in love with Room On The Broom. It’s a perfect Halloween tale about a friendly witch who is on a journey and makes friends in the most unlikely of places, and under the most unlikely of circumstances.  Get the details here + a few fun crafts >> 

Hope you all have a safe and wonderful Halloween weekend! 

  • These are so cute and perfect for a spooktacular halloween party. I made the pumpkin patch ones a while back but instead of pumpkins turned it into a graveyard.
