Witches, Ghosts, and Goblins-Oh My! {A Roundup}


Halloween is right around the corner, so I rounded up my favorite Halloween food and decorations to share with you.

We love hosting a Halloween gathering for the neighborhood kids before Trick-or-Treating starts to add to the festivities and ensure everyone has food in their bellies before adding CANDY! Whether you’re in a neighborhood or spending Halloween on the farm, consider using these ideas to host your own party for young and old alike.

Light up your entryway with these great Mason jar tea light candles from A Pumpkin and a Princess.com.

Now for the ghoulish food! Every party needs a great appetizer.

How about a graveyard full of veggies? Taste of Home has the recipe ready to add to your recipe box.

If veggies aren’t a crowd pleaser, you can always rely on the Bride of Frankenstein. She’ll save you tons of time and her platter is quick and easy.

You must fill everyone’s belly with something more substantial before Trick or Treating, so try these dishes to please the most discerning palate.

Delish.com has everything you need to make Jack-o’-Lantern Chicken and Sweet Potato Potpies. These are perfect for Vermont’s chilly Halloween nights.

 But in case you have some tough customers, pizza is always a hit. And this ghostly delight will be a crowd pleaser.

 The kids are now ready to hit the Trick or Treat trail.

But you may need some liquid courage to live through a chaotic night of walking in the dark, controlling the amount of ingested candy, and avoiding the inevitable break down (the kids’ not yours)!

Anyway, here’s a Pumpkin Spice Halloween Punch Recipe that can be served at the party and taken on the trail. Who says Halloween is just for kids?

I’m a recent transplant to the beautiful Champlain Valley. A bona fide member of GRITS (Girls Raised In The South – Savannah, GA to be exact), my family and I have spent the last year exploring Vermont, and I can honestly say it is my new favorite state! I’m a long way from my former corporate life as a Sales Manager for a Fortune 500 company. Don’t get me wrong – I didn’t lose my management duties. My hours just increased from 50 hour weeks to 24/7 balancing between family and growing my own small business development consulting firm! I happily keep these crazy, working hours for my two wonderful children, a 12 year old boy and a 9 year old girl, and some of the small business clients I have here in Vermont. If you’d like to learn about the things that make my family happy and keep our household running smoothly, come visit us at www.goodhomestuff.com.
