Ghosts and ghouls, witches and warlocks, Pumpkin Spice enthusiasts and anyone in between; the Spookiest of seasons is upon us once again and it’s time to celebrate! What better way than by putting on your best costume, and indulging in all things spooky? We have put together a list of scary-easy ways to throw the best shindig this side of Elm Street.
Start with giving your house a spooky vibe. Going all out in the decoration department does not have to eat up the party budget. The local dollar store can be your best friend! As long as you have a hot glue gun and some creative juices, you can decorate every room in the house for next to nothing! From garland, to lights, creepy candles and spooky signs, you can find anything to make your home just a little more haunted. Try their silk flowers, dip them in some black paint, glue a few spiders onto one of their glass vases, and you have a spooky centerpiece! Paint some eyes and a mouth on a white jar candle, and it’s a ghost! Cobwebs will be your best friend and are such a cheap and spooky way to transform any room! You can get all kinds of serving trays and bowls, that will last for next year’s party! We even have some fun and easy DIY's on our Halloween Pinterest Board that you and the family can throw together with things you probably already have at home!
Next, on to food. Food can always make or break a party, and not only do we have easy and fun ideas for you, we have some that include your favorite Door County coffee's too! You can find lots of tasty eats on our Halloween Pinterest board, like Mummies Pizzas, Jack-o-Lantern Quesadillas or Pumpkin Patch Pudding Cups! You can find some yummy Pumpkin Spice Pudding made with your favorite Pumpkin Spice Coffee or a yummy Pumpkin Spice Swiss Cafe to sip on while Trick-or-Treating!
You also have to have a fun costume to really get into the spooky spirit! Here at the Door County Coffee Café, we like to split up into our groups by department. Group costumes are always a fun alternative to the same old witch costume that makes its only appearance every October 31st. We love to find fun, new costumes we make ourselves, from making our own cars for a Mario Kart costume, to pulling off the entire crew from the price is right! Costumes can of course be purchased, but there is something so fun about getting together, drinking some Pumpkin Spice coffee and making a fun family costume together!
You can never go wrong adding in fun games or crafts to a party, especially when it gives your spooky guests something to take home! From Mason Jar Pumpkin Luminaries or Spiderweb Suncatchers there are so many ideas for crafts for all ages on our Halloween Pinterest Board!
We hope you found some fun ideas to have the most spooktacular Halloween party ever this year! Happy Haunting!
