Since Halloween is on a Friday, then I've been thinking about throwing a party. I want one that kids and adults would want to attend. It would be safer for the kids, and I think it would be more fun than just trick or treating. To really make the party look spooky I want to decorate it similar to a haunted house theme. We have a screened-in porch so I can put cobwebs with spiders hanging down, a couple of carved pumpkins, and some moss. I am also thinking of making a cemetery in the front yard. That would definitely get attention from my neighbors.
I really think the kids would get a kick out of the Halloween party food I am going to make. I found a recipe for creepy witch finger cookies that look like fingers. I think a dirt pudding with candy gummy worms inside is always a hit. It's actually a very tasty treat. I also think I would like to let everyone make their own pumpkin face pizzas. They could use pepperoni for eyes, mushroom or black olive for the nose, and either pepperoni for a mouth or whatever else they would like. I could have several bowls of different ingredients and let them use their own imagination. I think it will be a great party, and planning it is a lot of the fun for me.
