Halloween Town

    |

My good friend, K, is the queen of throwing themed parties. This past weekend, she invited a few friends and I over to celebrate Halloween. The decorations and food were more than impressive. If you're looking for some last minute tips and tricks for your Halloween or fall themed party, read on for some tips, courtesy of K.

Decorations
-Pumpkins: these are always a reliable, clean, and easy decoration you can use for fall parties. They can be found at your local grocery store individually, or in a small sack for under $5. With large pumpkins, if you prefer not to carve them, try painting on a few coats of Modge Podge and glitter for instant glamour.

-Burlap: for a cheap and festive table runner, head to your local fabric store and purchase a few feet of burlap. Besides cutting it to fit your table, you won't need to make any alterations.

Snacks
-Chocolate-dipped Oreos: it can't get any simpler than this. Colored chocolate can be found at Michael's craft stores.

-Zombie calzones (recipe here): probably one of the best calzones I have ever had. Need I say more?

-A tip from B: For cupcakes, to get an ombre, or two-tone effect in your frosting, put two colors in a piping bag, instead of one. Don't have a piping bag? Use a Ziploc bag with one corner cut off.
