Planning a Halloween party for your goblins or need a spooky meal before heading out to Trick or Treat? I’ve gathered over 70 EASY Halloween party recipes & ideas for a Spooktacular night.
When my Teens were younger, I made Mummy Dogs and Mac ‘n Cheese for dinner on Halloween. Every year. For many, many years.
Preparing a fun, themed dinner was the best way to ensure my kids would have something more substantial than a bunch of candy in their bellies by night’s end.
Now that my kids are older (and their taste buds have evolved), we’ve moved past Mummy Dogs to other fun Halloween eats.
For the record, I prefer to make FUN spooky food for Halloween. I’m not into creepy food.
I mean, who wants to be grossed out by disgusting food? Severed finger hot dogs – yuck!! The Halloween recipes & ideas I’ve linked to below are spooky, but in a fun way.
So many awesome appetizer, snack, drinks, main dishes and of course, dessert recipes! I’ve also included several fun party & decorating ideas.

Simple Halloween Party Hosting Tips
Now that you’ve got the menu figured out, don’t forget the finishing touches. It only takes a few minutes to create a spooky atmosphere. And you don’t need to spend a fortune doing it.
- These goody bags are a cute way to dress up cookies & baked goods.
- Turn a plain punch bowl into a creepy serving vessel by making spooky ice cube hands.
- If you’re short on time, order a package of themed party supplies – one click & I’ve got plates, napkins & cups heading my way – boom!
- Party decorations can be a budget buster if you’re not careful. Save a little coin by using a colored sheet for a tablecloth. Select a few pumpkins in a variety of shapes & sizes for the table. Add a few LED candles and call it good.
- If you want to splurge a little, this reusable inflatable Dracula drink cooler is a fun addition to the party.
- Package snacks & treats in themed cello bags for your guests to take home. I’ve also used these to package treats for classroom parties.
