So last night FI and I sent out the invitationt our Halloween Party costume party. I LOVE Halloween parties and I usually try to go all out. This year I’m going to dress as a fortune teller and turn my kitchen into my reading room. So far, I’ve found a fog machine and a thunder and lighting machines on amazon. I’m also planning on making a crystal ball to place on a table accompanied by tarot cards, dream books, candles and an astrological chart. I’m also going to place a beaded curtain in the door way. Are there any suggestions for what else I could add? Any suggestions for a theme for the rest of the house (doesn’t have to be fortune teller themed)? What about adult games? Food? Thanks for your help!

Can I come? 😛
Here’s some things I have done for parties:
I had a costume contest to encourage people to really dress up and not do it half-hearted (“I’m a, uh, teenager with a hoodie”).
Get dry ice and put it in the punch/drinks and offer it for everyone’s cups. It will make them “steam”. Put dry ice everywhere- in your pumpkins….
I had a “ghost” pinata- was a fun way to distribute candy. Made it myself =D cheap college student lol.

I second dry ice!
Cobb webbing, and the more traditional things like pumpkins or masks. Change the lightbulbs temporarily in your house to black lights or diff creepy colors
Sounds like a blast!

This website has some awesome jello shot recipes. Last year I did the pumpkin pie and candy corn ones. They went over exceptionally well.
A costume contest is a must. I have a trophy that gets passed around every year. I just bought an old hockey trophy from a thrift shop, cut off the player’s head, replaced it with a skeleton head and glued a wood plaque over the original that read, “best costume” I’ve had other prizes as well, like an Alfred Hitchock movie box set and other horror movies.
Other fun themed food ideas:
Breadstick bones – use frozen bread dough. Shape into bones and bake as per instructions. Serve with a meaty “blood n’ gut” sauce or antipasto
Watermelon brain – cut a watermelon in half, peel off the skin, and carve out veins – looks really cool
Witches fingers- serve baby carrots with almond sliver fingernails. Dip the slivered almond in cream cheese and stick to the end of the carrot stick
Halloween Tortilla chips – use halloween themed cookie cutters to cut shapes from tortill shells. Spray with non stick cooking spray and sprinkle with seasoned salt. Put in oven at 350 for about 10 minutes until they are crispy.
