Party In a Pinch: All Hallows Eve
Since I am a bit too old to go trick-or-treating (yes, I am sad about it) and my babies are a bit too young to go out this year (yes, the world is on to you parents pushing strollers, pretty sure that baby isn't going to eat that Snickers...) we prefer to stay in. I always love passing out candy and turning the night into a costume contest for all those who stop by. So, what better way to judge the groups of kids that come passing through than inviting over some friends and whipping together a party in a pinch?!
With the outside of the house decorated, the mood was already set. Now, just to set the main table, get some Halloween tunes going and enjoy getting dressed up. First, I went to the garage to assess my party supplies and see what I had going on. Lucky for me, I happened to have some orange fabric for a table cloth aaaannnnnd I even found some purple glittered black "shwag" fabric...OH YEAH!
With the color scheme on point, I decided to add a few DIY ghosts hanging from the ceiling to make sure my ghouls and guests could spend the evening together.
While I prepped my spooky spread for the evening, I decided to create some "Bubbling Pumpkins" to drink. I mixed up some pumpkin puree with pumpkin spice seasoning and added a nice dollop to the bottom of my glass and poured on the champagne.
With a drink in hand, it was time to head to the kitchen and knock out my devilsihly delish dishes. But first, a sweet trick-or-TREAT!
