So. This Saturday, I am hosting a Halloween blow-out. Weâ€™re talking 40+ people. Maybe 50, depending on how many people bring dates. Iâ€™m excited, but Iâ€™m also feeling a bit panicky, because all Iâ€™ve done to prepare is borrow my in-lawsâ€™ box of Halloween decorations (I am so not the woman who keeps boxes of decorations in my attic â€“ but I want to be). The decorations are still in my garage. Gulp.
Anyway, I need your help.
My friends always bring over potluck dishes to every party, but Iâ€™d like to offer a decent spread myself, too. Iâ€™d love some suggestions for Halloween-themed foods (like these awesome cakes from Country Living; however, letâ€™s face it, Iâ€™m not that crafty). So stick with simple suggestions, please.
Well, I lie â€“ I have planned out some stuff for the party. Like a costume contest (prize = bag of Trader Joeâ€™s goodiesâ€¦ because who doesnâ€™t like that?), a flip cup competition (guests may play with water, of course), and a pumpkin beer tasting. But thatâ€™s it. And all of these plans are just that â€“ plans. I have no supplies. Guess I know what Iâ€™ll be up to tomorrowâ€¦
