I can’t believe it is October already. I wanted to get this out before all of you have your awesome Halloween parties. I wanted to share some fun family Halloween party ideas and some creative recipes that I have found from some blogging friends of mine. This round-up post is one of my favorite things to see! I love finding a bunch of fun ideas all in one post and I hope this brings those ideas to you too. Hopefully, it will help you save some time in the long run for party planning.
Halloween Party Idea and Recipe Round Up
So, I’m very excited to share multiple posts from a few different blogging friends of mine. Keep in mind that these are posts that blogging friends of mine have written, not me. I’m just bringing them all together for you to see in one area. So please give credit where credit is due- if you find an awesome idea on one of these posts and want to tell them how awesome it is or how awesome your version of their idea turned out, please let the original writer know! Please also know that the images are from the original writers posts. I do not take credit for the images that are demonstrating what we are sharing with you. I do have a couple images here for Pinterest purposes that I have crafted or used here for you. But, included in the posting sections are the images from the blog post authors! They have all the credit.
Let’s get down to business. The first set of ideas i want to share with you comes from two very talented writers, Julia and Rory Groves from The Quiet Grove. This blog has quite a few Halloween and Fall posts that I think are totally worthy of you checking them out. As far as this post goes, make sure to check out the free party printables they offer. They have a nice collection of food tent cards, water bottle wrappers, banners, candy bar wrappers, etc. So many options that you really need to take advantage of! I can tell they put a lot of time into this little collection and I think it would be perfect for every Halloween Party out there! I told you that The Quiet Grove has TONS of ideas for your party— make sure to check out the awesome Halloween Bingo Game! They even have a free printable for that too! You can also get other games like mazes and word searches. So GENIOUS! I’m shocked to find how many things they have for free printables and am very excited to share them with you! I hope you take the time to check out all the awesome things from The Quiet Grove.
If you’re interested, The Quiet Grove also has fun crafts for the kids to do at your Halloween party! I love the Jack-O-Lantern craft. She has the free printable to use and then fantastic instructions that are easy enough for the kids to use! The Quiet Grove also supports the Teal Pumpkin Project, like we do! It’s so nice to find others who are aware of how food allergies can impact children during the Halloween and Fall Season. We want to make sure that all children, no matter what allergy they have, can enjoy this time of year.
Arlin, over at That Mommy Life– Motherhood with a creative side, has some great printables available as well. These printables are great for hidden learning! She has fun ways to solve math problems, ways to figure out patterns and word scrambles. It’s nice to find activities for children that are fun, but, can also double as learning times. It’s important to keep kids brains active and sometimes that isn’t always so easy.
Krista Davis over at Cleaning Out The Clutter, has an awesome Crockpot Apple Cider and Apple Sauce recipe for you to make for your party! Apple Cider is the perfect fall drink and is something that both children and adults can enjoy safely. This recipe sounds super easy and super delish. Can’t wait for you to check it out and try it at your party.
If you’re looking for more crockpot recipes that would be perfect for your party, make sure to head over to Raising Human Beans. They have a great round up post of all crockpot recipes that would be perfect for your Halloween party or any fall time eating occasion! The thing I love about crockpot recipes, is that they are generally a no maintenance dish. Well, they’re usually at least a low maintenance dish so you should have plenty of time to get other things together for your party, or perfect for any busy week night when you will need an easy dinner that evening.
I aso found this great blogger, Rebeca, over at Strength & Sunshine. She is a gluten free and allergy friendly food blogger who was kind enough to share her Soft and Grainless Pumpkin Spice Latte Cookies. I know we have a lot of pumpkin spice lovers out there so, I knew I had to share this one with you guys. These cookies would make a delicious treat and would be great to have if you have any guests who need Gluten Free or other allergy sensitive treats.
Every Halloween party needs some kind of Candy Corn Treat. Without it, your halloween party is incomplete. I have found myself on Jordan’s blog, Read. Eat. Repeat. so many times, it’s crazy! She has so many amazing recipes that I have tried and love to find new ones here too. Anyway, she has this awesome Candy Corn Fudge Recipe. I am sure that all of your guests would L – O – V – E this! It’s so tasty looking and I can’t wait to make this for our little Halloween get together.
Finally, if you’re looking for a creepy dish for your guests, check out this spider leg dip from my friend Felicia, over at The Starving Chef. This pizza dip tastes delicious and will be a great visual pleaser for all of your guests. The Starving Chef has a ton of other recipes for all occasions. I highly recommend that you check them out sooner rather than later! After looking through all of these recipes, I sure am hungry now!
Jennifer, over at This Mommin’ Life has the cutest craft for infants. I absolutely love this craft and can guarantee that I will be trying to do this Ghost foot print craft with Caroline. With babies, you know you need something super quick and easy. This even requires little clean up and will make a cute decoration that you can put out over the next couple years and reflect back on to how big your child has gotten. I think it would be a lot of fun to make this every year and see the changes each year.
Another fun craft can be found over at This Mama Needs Chocolate. Kim blogs at This Mama Needs Chocolate and she shared the DIY Pumpkin PlayDough with us. This would be a fun craft to make with the kids at your party and then it can be something that they use to entertain themselves during the party. Win – win times two!
If you’re still looking for fun and creative things to do at your Halloween party, check out Pinterest. There is an abundance amount of ideas for any kind of party you’d like to throw! I can’t tell you how much time I have spent on that site. We’d love to hear your party ideas in the comments below!
