    • Party Invitation

      Craft several of these party invitations to hang on your friends' doors as a reminder of your spooky soiree. Decorate your front door with one, too.

    • Start the Party

      Party guests tend to linger around the food table, so make yours as engaging as possible. A simple runner made from orange-and-white striped fabric trimmed with rickrack grounds the goodies displayed on black, white, green, and orange dishes and serving pieces.

    • Spooky Food Labels

      Amuse your guests by clearly marking party food with these labels that look like they were pulled from the fire.

    • Watchful Crows

      Give your guests something to crow about by perching a few crows (available at crafts stores) in strategic locations. Don't forget to add them in unexpected nooks and to the buffet table.

    • Mummy Dogs

      Fill hungry tummies with Mummy Dogs, a smile-inducing finger food. Refrigerated breadstick dough makes this crowd-pleaser a cinch to make. For eyes, press capers into the dough before baking.

    • Spiderweb Soup

      Give boring tomato soup a ghoulish makeover in a snap-- and you don't even have to be a gourmet chef! This tangled web is a bit of sour cream woven with a toothpick. See the next two slides for more information.

    • Spiderweb Soup: Step 1

      For the spiderweb design, mix together 3 tablespoons of sour cream and 1 tablespoon of milk. Pour the mixture into a plastic condiment bottle. Carefully squeeze several circles on the surface of warm soup, making a targetlike design.

    • Spiderweb Soup: Step 2

      Use a toothpick to drag lines from the center out toward the edges to create a web design. Voila! Create the webs just as you serve your guests so they get the full effect (and before the sour cream dissolves into the soup).

    • Super Easy S'mores

      Serve a Halloween dessert that pleases both kids and adults -- ooey, gooey delicious s'mores. With this speedy version, you can have "some more" in no time flat.

      Bag It!

      Bags of sweets and snacks are always a hit. For a change of pace, include some nonedible loot, such as small toys or Halloween-themed flashlights (available at party stores) to use on trick-or-treating adventures.

      Don't Forget the Grown-Ups
