Host the Perfect Halloween Party

You can transform average party food into a real Halloween party spread with a little imagination and help from the kids. For extra-frightening fare, turn that macaroni salad into a "bowl of brains" and set out a dish of peeled grapes or olives for "mummy's eyeballs." Eww! Any kind of goop or glop will help add to the horror (think "blood and guts" salsa, guacamole, and hummus). Ask your children to get creative with naming the terrifying treats. See our list of Halloween recipes for more easy-to-make ideas. And don't forget the candy!
