Halloween Brouhaha

I decided to host a small get together for a couple friends to watch some not to scary Halloween movies. I gathered up some of my old favorites like Hocus Pocus, Scream, and Ghostbusters, scoured Pinterest for some festive printables, and put a few snacks together.

I decided to go old school and send actual, snail mail invitations. I used these Bag of Bones invitations.

To enjoy with the movie, I made this fall spice popcorn (which I also made for a Halloween party 2 years ago). It was easy and delicious.


Don’t eat the spiders – they’re plastic and came in a pack of 12 for $1 at Dollar Tree. The craft paper looking printables with funny phrases like “May Contain Spiders” “Probably Poison” and “Absolutely to Die For” are free from here. Those black chevron paper straws I used as food picks for the labels were a steal from Dollar Tree.

I bought a Wilton bone pan  on clearance at Target last year, so when I saw these Dusty Bones sugar cookies bones on Pinterest, I knew I had to give them a try.


I didn’t have white food coloring, clear vanilla extract, or unsweetened white cocoa, so I went without. As a result, the bone cookies were more of an almond color. Still tasted great!

For makeshift wine glass markets, I attached these potion label printables to my large outdoor wine glasses with black striped washi tape.


Just for fun, I couldn’t resist these cute napkins that say “Drink Up Witches.” They were a Marshalls find for a couple dollars.IMG_8185

And finally, I made this Halloween movie trivia game to play in between movies. SCARY MOVIE TRIVIA (1)

However, the best laid plans…

Number of movies watched: 0

Number of hours spent chatting and eating: 3+

I’d still call it a win.
