A Halloween Haunted Hoedown Party

Throwing the Halloween party of the century? Wrangle up your little cowboys and cowgirls and feed them these hoedown treats. These yummy recipes will fill up even the hungriest buckaroo!

Hoedown Invitations

Rustle up some fall fun for Halloween with an Old-West-style Haunted Hoedown party. These invitations will start the fun even before the party begins!

The Table

Ghostly napkins, pumpkin head centerpiece, and straw hats add ambience to the table, decorated with a burlap tablecloth. Find out how to make it in the link below.

Drink Cooler

The old watering hole provides plenty of drinks served up in pretty and practical pumpkin coolers. TIP: Line the pumpkin with heavy plastic or a bowl to keep melting ice from soaking through the pumpkin.

Pumpkin Head Centerpiece

Yarn "hair" sits underneath an inexpensive straw hat for a cute table decoration. (Notice the freckles!) Find out more in the link below.

Bandanna Treat Bag

Here's an easy sewing project that will be a big hit with your guests. Simple cotton bandannas are cut and sewn into rectangles, then tied with twine or raffia.

Corn Bread Cactus

You won't have trouble lassoing in the party guests when you serve these adorable Corn Bread Cactuses. Serve as a side dish with chili or burgers, and hungry buckaroos will be coming back for more!

Coleslaw with a Twist

Some slaw is just what you need to kick off the rendezvous! This tasty side dish is so easy to prepare, you can have the little cowboys and cowgirls help you make it before the party gets started. Yee-haw!

Grilled Beef Burgers & Giddyap Chili

Nothing says "party" like food fresh from the grill (or broiler). Pile these hoedown specialties with assorted toppings and serve to the cowboys and cowgirls at your get-together.

Steaming mugs of chili will fill up your favorite little wrangler. Add cheese or your favorite vegetable to the mix and watch the little Halloween guests squeal with excitement!

Harvest-Time Pumpkin Bars

To satisfy any sweet tooth, these bars are necessities. Display on a three-tiered tray with pumpkins and fake autumn leaves to really set the tone. You might want to make a couple extra trays -- these treats go fast!
