Long beyond the age of being little “ghosts and goblins” going door-to-door, folks of all ages enjoy dressing up in costume and having the time of their lives at Halloween parties. If your home’s on the “spooky” path for one of these “monster mashes” this year, the images here from bhg can give you inspiration enough to make your bash be the hit of the block. Start out with a clever “wreath” on the door (with a creepy ghost or “spider” in residence)…wrap your beverage bottles in pumpkin “labels”…or stencil pumpkins with messages like “DANGER” to warn your visitors before they enter. Fill glass vases with popcorn and “flowers” made of Halloween stencils mounted on long sticks…or do a “family tree” of old-fashioned silhouettes in black, string pumpkin-orange lights, and you’re in business.

Refreshments can get in the spirit, too: you can make everything from clever “blood”-red punch to bug-shaped pizza buns, “eyeball” quiches (with olives as the eyes!), a black cat cheese ball, hummus “pumpkins” (made with balls of hummus covered in shredded carrots), or a shrimp “brain” cocktail — looks creepy, tastes yummy. Need something sweet? Try “black cat” cupcakes (made with chocolate frosting, sprinkles, and gumdrops); “yummy mummy” cupcakes (with white frosting piped into “bandage” shapes across their “faces”); cupcakes shaped like pumpkins, with orange frosting and sparkles and pretzel sticks for stems; or cupcake “ghosts,” with fondant “sheets” and black frosting “eyes.” Slip some ghostly sound effects or music into the stereo, set dry ice into bowls for atmosphere, and dim the lights: you’re all set for ghostly fun.
