Tips for Hosting the Perfect Halloween Party
Themed Cocktails: Use our spirits to concoct spooky cocktails. How about a “Kraken’s Curse” with the Kraken Black Spiced Rum, mixed with cola, and a splash of grenadine for that bloody look?
DIY Decor: A little effort can go a long way. Use old jars filled with coloured water and a floating eyeball (a lychee with a blueberry inside) for an eerie decoration.
Spooky Playlist: Set the mood with a mix of classic Halloween hits. Think “Monster Mash”, “Thriller”, and the theme from “The Exorcist”.
Costume Contest: Encourage guests to dress up by holding a costume contest. Offer a prize for the most creative, scariest, and funniest outfits!
Ghastly Games: Set up a “pin the spider on the web” game or have a pumpkin carving contest. Remember, it’s all in good fun!
Eerie and Spooky Snacks: Prep for Your Pre-Drinks Halloween Party!
So, you’ve got your cart full of chilling drinks from Bargain Booze. But what about those little touches to make your pre-drinks gathering truly memorable? Fear not, because we’ve got a slew of easy garnish and snack ideas that will get your guests into the Halloween spirit before you even head out!
Eyeball Ice Cubes: Freeze green or black grapes inside ice cubes. When added to drinks, they’ll look like floating eyeballs!
Peppered Spirits: Add a small, hollowed-out pepper with a spooky face carved into it to your drinks. It’ll float and add a ghostly vibe!
Wormy Delight: Drop in a few gummy worms into clear cocktails for a slimy surprise.
Smoke Effect: Use dry ice pellets in your punch bowl to give it that eerie foggy look. (Be cautious: never touch dry ice with bare hands and don’t swallow it!)
Mummy Dogs: Wrap hot dogs in strips of crescent roll dough, leaving a little space for eyes. Bake them and then place small dots of mustard for the eyes.
Pumpkin Cheese Ball: Make your favourite cheese ball recipe, shape it like a pumpkin, and coat it with crushed Doritos for an orange tint. Use a celery stick for the stem.
Vampire’s Delight Dip: Blend beetroot, garlic, Greek yogurt, and some herbs to make a blood-red dip perfect for tortilla chips.
Monster Mouths: Slice green apples, spread peanut butter on one side, place yogurt-covered raisins or almonds as teeth, and then top with another apple slice. The result? A monstrous, yet delicious, treat!
Witches’ Fingers: Use pretzel rods, dip ¾ of it in white chocolate dyed with green food colouring, and attach a sliced almond at the tip for the nail.
Don’t forget to present your snacks with some fun Halloween-themed serving platters or bowls. Even simple white dishes can be enhanced by adding some fake spider webs or plastic spiders for added effect!
