Throwing a party for Halloween is the perfect excuse to over decorate and break out your favorite Halloween costume. You've already decorated your house for Halloween, so why not have a few friends over? It is easier than you might think to throw together the perfect Bone-chilling Bash! From a simply spooky menu to devilish decorations, Jennifer Durbin, author of Party Planning Tips for the Clueless Chick, gives us some tips.

DIY Decorations

Mummy lanterns. Simply wrap gauze around mason jars, add googlie eyes and a candle and you have a perfectly spooky centerpiece. Psst – for Christmas swap the gauze for burlap, add brown pipe cleaners and a red nose and you have Rudolf lanterns.

Healthy Snacks

Candy corn fruit salad. A fun and healthy single serving option for your guests.
