Halloween gets festive around my house. I'm not shy about how much I love this holiday and I love a good Halloween party! Tricks and treats and dressing up and being silly, spooky, or sweet. It brings out the kid in me. My kids love it too. We threw a frightfully fun Kids' Halloween Costume Party to celebrate this fun holiday.

Cauldron cupcakes with "bubbling-and-brewing" frosting were a hit, and were gobbled up by the kiddos and adults alike. For a healthier option, I also served candy corn fruit parfaits. We all know that kids get enough candy at Halloween; this snack lets you get in some fruit before all the trick or treating. Purple witch's brew keeps them hydrated for a night full of spooks.

For a great centerpiece I made several cheesecloth ghosts for the tables. These are stunning decorative accents, but, don't worry, they are simple to make. Check out Elmer's Cheesecloth Ghost directions
