Like last year we gave each family a food assignment to bring to the party. This is totally the way to throw a party. All I had to do was plan some activities. My home was already decorated for the holiday, the guests were bringing the food and all I did was punch and games. We have so much fun searching the Internet for fun "spooky" food recipes. This year we had the best grub yet. I especially enjoyed the Jack-o-lantern grilled cheese sandwiches. Yummy. Enjoy the food slide show...hope you aren't watching it hungry:-)
We played Halloween bingo, a treasure hunt for lollipop ghosts the kids had made and hidden, and of course the so so popular game of eating donuts from a string hanging from the ceiling. Things went way quicker than I thought and so we also ended up telling add-a-line spooky stories, a witch dance game, freeze dance to Halloween music and a costume contest.
It was a fantastic night and I only had to sweep three times afterwards to clean up the mess.
