Have you prepared for your Halloween party? Turn on your imagination and use several ideas that will help you quickly organize a spooooooky party!
1. Jack-O’-Lanterns From Oranges or Mandarins
This is the laziest version of Halloween preparation. All you need are mandarins and a black marker. Draw funny faces on mandarins or oranges – the pattern can be the same, and you can make each jack-o’-lantern with its own, original face. You can connect children to the process – they will not mind to participate in the creative process.
2. Pumpkin in Glitter
Such pumpkins are made very simply and easily. In addition, it is not necessary to carve faces on them – glitter is quite enough.
To make a jack-o’-lantern, you need to evenly sprinkle the pumpkin with spray glue. Spray can be replaced with paper glue, diluted in half with water. This mixture must be spread in a thin layer with a brush.
While the glue is still wet, take a spoon of glitter and pour it onto the sticky surface of the pumpkin. Take a pumpkin and shake off excess sparkles on a big sheet of paper or just take old newspapers for this and reuse glitter for another pumpkin. Put pumpkins on desired lac and let it dry.
3. Monster Toasts
Appearance plays a primarily role in Halloween dishes. On the eve of All Saints’ Day, prepare your frightening sandwiches for breakfast for your little monster.
For such sandwiches, pieces of bread should be roasted in a toaster or on a dry frying pan. Take various cheeses and cut them into thin strips. Cut the olives into circles. Spread ketchup on bread and put the pieces of cheese on top. Make eyes from the pieces of olives. A creepy appetizer for Halloween is ready!
4. Halloween Canapes
The simplest recipe for snacks is useful for you when you need to quickly prepare something for a Halloween party. It will be better to pick ready-made skewers designed specially for Halloween.
You can make two different variants: sweet and salty canapes. For sweet you can use grapes, strawberries, and marshmallows. Just skewer up the ingredients in random order and place on the plate.
So, first you will need to cut the cheddar cheese into cubes; sausages should be cut into large slices. Prepare plastic or wooden skewers in the form of bats, ghosts, and pumpkins. Put slices of cheese and sausage on the skewers.
5. Ghost Fruits
On Halloween, traditionally all sorts of dishes can be cooked, such as pumpkins and fun food in the form of evil spirits.
To make ghost fruit, you need to peel the bananas and cut them in half. Tangerines should be peeled, but try not to break them into several parts.
Put bananas vertically, and make the mouth and eyes of future ghosts from chocolate drops (you can just draw them using chocolate glaze).
Put a piece of celery stalk inside the mandarins to make pumpkin tails.
6. Sausages in Dressing
For this easy dish you need a pack of puff pastries, sausages, mayonnaise, ketchup, and black food marker or black olives. Heat your oven to 200°C. Cut the puff pastry into stripes and put it around the sausages. Grease the baking tray with oil and put the sausages on it. Bake until crispy. Decorate your sausages with ketchup imitating blood and put mayonnaise to make eyes.
7. Halloween Glasses
This is an ideally simple option that requires minimal artistic skills.
You just need to draw with marker black bats, spiders, or just spooky faces on glasses with orange or tomato juice. If you are afraid to spoil expensive dishes, use plastic glasses. If you have some Halloween stickers, use it!
8. Bucket for Trick or Treat
This idea will appeal to the smallest guests. You will need to take a plastic orange bucket and a black marker and draw a jack-o’-lantern’s face on it. Then fill it with all kinds of treats: sweets, candies, and jelly worms.
This bucket will look good in the center of the table. Similarly, you can make small serving cups with sweets.
9. Witch’s Brew Punch Recipe
For this recipe you will need two liters of lemon-lime soda, one green apple Kool-Aid Mix, and dry ice. Mix the soda and apple mix in a big punch bowl. To make a mysterious decoration, place a dry ice into a glass of water and put it into the punch bowl. It will be floating around and imitate a witch’s brew that is still cooked.
Warning: The glass with dry ice may seep into the punch bowl and create white bubbles, so you should warn your guests not to eat those bubbles.
