Greet Your Guests
Usher your guests into the fun by setting up a table of Halloween treats. The three glass jars have chalkboard lables attached to them for easy fun, in this case, "Trick" "Or" "Treat".

Pick up store-bought cakes, such as Snowballs, that are tinted orange, then top them with green gummy candies to make party-ready pumpkins.

Table of Treats
Orange-tinted marshmallows displayed in a glass jar are the perfect backdrop to must-have cupcakes.

Black and orange gumballs are the perfect alien eyeballs for pint-sized guests with full-scale imaginations. Get creative with other candies and kitchen ingredients. Cold cooked spaghetti noodles as brains, anyone?

These chocolate cupcakes, topped with a simple cookies-and-cream frosting, make the perfect base for piped whipped cream ghosts with milk chocolate faces. If you prefer, use mini chocolate chips for the ghosts' eyes.

Carve the Pumpkin
Don't forget to carve the pumpkins! After your guests have enjoyed a few treats, usher them outside to a table covered in butcher paper and loaded down with stickers, markers, paint, and carving tools. Don't forget to provide mini candles for that perfect end-of-party photo opportunity.
