October 31st is right around the corner! It is such a fun holiday to celebrate with decorating, dressing up and hosting parties. Here are a few festive, creative ideas to get you in the Halloween spirit.

1. Host a Halloween Cupcake Decorating Party

Gather the kids, cupcakes and toppings and have a ball! This easy, inexpensive party theme is sure to please kids and adults. The TomKat Studio printable party collection I designed for this theme adds the finishing touches to tie it all together.

2. BOO Your Neighbors

Are you familiar with “BOOing”? If not, you should be! It is such a fun tradition. Secretly leave Halloween goodies on your neighbor’s front porch, along with this free printable sign and instructions. The idea is that they will then BOO another neighbor and the whole neighborhood will get in the Halloween spirit. We were BOOed this weekend, and we’re baking tonight to keep it going.

3. Make a Spooky Halloween Banner

I hosted a girl’s night in last week, and we all made this fun Spooky Halloween banner. Download Free Printable Spooky Banner Letters 

4. Brew Up Creative Cocktails

For the adults, try out some new creepy cocktails. This black widow martini looks intoxicatingly scary, especially with a spider crawling up the glass stem, but is sure to be sweet. Drop a candy spider right in the drink as a garnish, like this dark and spooky cocktail. Or serve spiked punch in this festive pumpkin punch bowl.

5. Bake Haunting Halloween Treats

This donut tree is adorable and can double as a centerpiece for your gathering. Decorated cookies are always the perfect treat to serve at your party or as party favors for guests. Candy apples, cookies and cake pops like those featured on this dessert table are all yummy additions to a Halloween party.

What are you doing this year to celebrate Halloween?

    I love these ideas! I wish I'd found this before our pumpkin party this past weekend. I'm bookmarking the page for next year, though :)

    Hello! I'm trying to duplicate your Spooky Halloween Banner for a baby shower (I'm printing different letters of course, hehee) but I'm having some trouble… I'm trying to figure out how you crinkled the polka dot paper. I tried doing one using a printed 8×10 paper and it turned out huge. Then I cut it in half to make it smaller but it didn't work out either. Do you have a tutorial or link to direct me to for help with that part of the banner? It would be so greatly appreciated!! :)

    You can email me at julesbellew@yahoo.com

    Thank you!!!
