Fright Night Film Festival
Host a Halloween Film Festival every weekend in October. Check out the library or video store for old classics like Frankenstein,
The Mummy, Dracula, and The Invisible Man. Project movies onto an outdoor wall or bed sheet. Stoke a grill or bonfire outdoors
and serve inspired renditions of classic movie theater snacks.
Who says Halloween is child's play? This gathering was created with adults in mind. Pass out decorated eye masks at the door
and let the fun begin. Serve delicious nibbles masquerading as something more sinister. Ask guests to write one unknown fact
about themselves on an adhesive nametag worn throughout the party, then let them try to figure out who's who.
When the chill of October has begun to set in, invite friends over for an elegant night in. Set the sideboard with candles
and varied delights...and don't forget to dim the lights. Some eerie music might just fit the bill, or spooky haunted house
sounds if you want added thrill.
Invite your best pals to a sleepless soiree with their teddy bears and pillows in tow. It will be a night of tall tales and
fun... and lots of good food, too! After dinner gather on the bed or around the fire and swap the scariest stories you know.
When the sun comes up, a warm breakfast will chase away any lingering bad spirits.
Go wild this Halloween and host the best party of the school year. Healthy foods go in disguise in this child-pleasing menu.
Turn off the classroom lights and read an old ghost story or some Halloween history to keep them entertained... and eating.
Potlucks are one of the easiest ways to entertain. Everyone shares in the cooking and takes home their dish for clean-up.
After a night of trick-or-treating folks can meet back at the house on the screened porch to sort candy, tell ghost stories
and enjoy a bubbling hot meal certain to be the envy of witches everywhere.
Host a creepy-themed cookie swap to boost anticipation of Halloween. Send out invitations on different recipe cards printed
from the assortment in this menu...or tell guests to bring their own haunting homemade sweets. Showcase all the cookies on
the table and after mingling and enjoying refreshments, start the swap. Move around the table in a clockwise direction, filling
treat bins with a sampling of each frightfully delicious treat.
Organize a block party early in the evening on Halloween night so bellies can be full of food before the candy eating commences.
Hold a costume contest and give out ribbons for scariest, silliest, best in show and most creative.
