My boys have grown up loving Halloween and we go all out. This year we decked the house out with spooky decor, pulled out the fog machines and had a blast!
The Dessert Table:
Every November 1st, I hit my favorite stores and scoop up as much Halloween decor I can find on clearance. Last year I picked up an 18 ft. outdoor Gutter Ghost and used it as this year's back drop. I set up the torches I bought for our Knights and Dragons party to add ambiance. I made sugar Bone Cookies, cupcakes, Mummy Graves (brownies topped with mummy cake pops with a candy tombstone) and "Finger Food" pudding cups. I also filled candy jars with candy corn and gumballs. I found a silicone ice tray in the Dollar Spot at Target and made spider web, monster eyeballs and spider fondant cupcake toppers.
The Monster Bar:
I also set up a "Monster Bar" for us to eat and hangout. Here I filled candy jars with vampire teeth, marshmallows, more candy corn and party favors. I made jello brains and Marshmallow pops and set each table setting up with a spooky goblet, juice blood and syringe.
