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.
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.
