October 24, 2013 by

Halloween is not a kids-only holiday. From haunted porch décor to eye-catching party treats, finger foods and homemade costumes, throwing a Halloween party is the perfect way to get the entire family into the spirit.

Check out these easy, clever and terror-ific ideas from Martha Stewart, Real Simple and Southern Living that are sure to make your party the haunting hit of the year!

Hair-Raising Party Décor: Party decorations don’t need to be costly or fussy.  Pumpkin balloons,  spirit jugs,   glittered pumpkins, spidery sills and window webs are fun and festive ideas for your party. Don’t limit your Halloween fun to inside your home, make your yard just as frightening and enchanting with these outdoor décor ideas!

Spooky Snacks: Finger foods and appetizers are always perfect for a casual party.  Monster eyes, goblin dip with bone crackers and scaredy cat brownies are Halloween treats that all of your guests will enjoy.  Brew ha ha punch, creepy cocktails and a hot spiced cider will provide your guests with great alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage options. Find all of these recipes and more here.

Homemade Halloween: Need a last minute costume for you, your children or even the family pet? Not a problem. These costumes ideas from Real Simple are inexpensive and easy to make with things you already have around the house!

Start a Treat Bag Tradition: Our residents and their families are making new memories with one another every day. Your kids may enjoy the candy, but memories last a lot longer, not to mention they are cavity free! Offer your child a treat sack they can use to collect not only sweets, but also autographs.
