Last-minute Halloween party ideas

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

With Halloween this Thursday, there is no time to waste pulling together your Halloween party.  We have some simple spooky last-minute party tips for you from Jennifer Durbin, author of Party Planning Tips for the Clueless Chick

Simple Sweets

S'mores Shots. Place 1 Graham Cracker, 1 Mini Hershey's Bar and 2 Ghost Marshmallows in an orange shot glass and you have a simply scrumptious s'mores shots. And let's be honest, is it really a party without s'mores?

Oreo Pops. If you don't have the time or culinary abilities to make cake pops, simply put a Halloween Oreo on a lollipop stick and you have an adorable Oreo pop. If you want to get a little fancy, dip the Oreos in white chocolate and decorate them as little ghost pops.

Fun and Easy Decorations

Mustache Pumpkins. If you don't have the time or patience to carve a pumpkin, decorate your pumpkin with a mustache. You can even get fancy with a paint pen or face stickers.

Delicious Drinks 

Candy Corn Martini. Why should the kids have all of the fun? Serve your grownup guests Candy Corn Martinis made with Candy Corn infused Vodka and Butterscotch Schnapps.

Sugar-Free Treats

Halloween Fun Favors. Halloween favors for the kids at school or your trick-or-treaters don't have to be chock-full of sugar. Wrap up a Halloween cookie cutter from the Dollar Store with a mini Play-Doh for a fun alternative to candy.
