The Perfect Halloween Party

hi guys,

just wondering if those of you on this forum that love halloween could give me some advice? i am planning a halloween party for my young family members (about 7 of them all aged between 1-10) i don't want a huge party (i am saving that for xmas!) i just want some nice food, some fun games and some scary decorations. i am also looking for a recipe for punch? if anyone has anyone ideas how i can treat them to a great party please let me know.

thanks

Have you checked some Halloween sites for ideas? Here's a couple of the ones I like;

Halloween Alliance

Halloween Is Here


Its nice to find someone else on this side of the Atlantic who loves Halloween (or Samhain as my pagan friends call it) as much as I do.

I also called a friend of mine who "loves" Halloween and she's digging through all her stuff to get you some ideas and recipes and stuff. So, hopefully she'll show up soon.

thanks guys, you have been such a big help. we don't celebrate it in a big way over in the uk, the kids go trick or treating but there aren't many halloween parties, i really want to enjoy it, in my opinion it is the beginning of the countdown for christmas!

martha stewart had some great ideas in her halloween book. i am sure they are on her website.

i had a halloween party every year til this last year as i was incapacitated.
but i like to get as kitschy as possible!

as for food and bev....
always do a thing of garlic soup. and then have a punch bowl with punch that is cooled by ice i make in a glove. and "finger" sandwiches" and devilled eggs and other food things that are puns. as i said.. i go for the kitsch!!

Christmas is very different here too I find (I'm from Canada), but don't let that stop you putting your stamp on the holiday. We'd all love to see some photos of the party later too!

I'm in the West Midlands, but we plan to move to Dorset in the Spring. I'm not much on living inland, regardless of which side of the Atlantic I'm on. I need to be near the sea.

How do I find it different. Perhaps its just the general contrary-mindedness of the people in this part of the country, but it seems to be treated more or less like an inconvenience. But thats not stopped me making it special. My in-laws, I'm sure, think I'm a bit of a fruitcake, but I've gotten them round to my way to doing one or two things for Christmas and they quite like it.

i know what you mean, alot of brits seem to have a "bah hum bug" attitude, my family really like to celebrate though, i think it's because we have loads of children in the family!

i am really in the mood for halloween now, i have just downloaded some scary music!
