Hosting a Halloween party? This is what we did

Happy Halloween

We love Halloween in our house any excuse to dress up and party! Every year we attend a little party hosted by either my mum or sister, but last year we decided to host one ourselves. We kept the guest list small and invited Mark’s sister and family.

For the past couple of years we have gone to a local Pick your own to pick Pumpkins.

We always tend to throw the insides out, although this year I have decided to make Pumpkin Pie with it. Oliver is so excited to try it!

Party preparation!

You spend hours on prepping for the party to be finished as quick as it started!

Meringue Ghosts

Ingredients

Mini meringues

Red writing icing tube

 

It really is as simple as drawing the faces of the ghost onto the meringues. So simple yet very effective!

Sandwiches

Bread

filling

Red writing icing pen

Again, so simple yet effective. You can cut the sandwiches into tombstone shapes/ghosts and then put the design on

I don’t actually have a name for these, so these are just red and green ghosts.

1.Melt the candy melts

Carrot Cake Tombstone

Cake of your choice

cut a layer about cm thick as this is going to form the top of the cake (The tombstone)

Cut the design onto the layer of cake you cut out,

after you have iced your cake, place the tombstone layer of cake on top.

    What great ideas! This year I have decided my boys are too old for trick or treating really as it isn’t so cute having almost teenagers knocking at your door and potentially scary for the elderly, so we might have to have a mini party. Thanks for linking up to #PicknMix
