Share the love!

Here at Midlife Perspective, we’ve put our feverish little brains together, and come up with twenty Halloween Party Food & Drink Ideas for your Halloween Party! And boy, have we found some spooktacular ideas!!!

Are you one of those people who LIVE for Halloween? It’s some folks favorite holiday. Perhaps you happily spend hours and hours scouring the internet for the latest, greatest, most fun decoration ideas.

Maybe you only give out the good stuff, when it comes to treats. No disappointing boxes of raisins, Tootsie rolls, DumDums or rolls of Neco candy from your house!

Or maybe you’re more like me, and you’d rather keep spooks to a minimum, by throwing a harvest themed celebration.

I may have considered the practicality of wearing a garlic necklace, to keep the vampires at bay. Maybe I’m a wee-bit more comfy with a few haystacks and a scarecrow. 

One thing’s for sure: this time of year turns our thoughts to leaves that will hopefully be turning a more vivid hue, and pumpkins perched on porches. The weather, for many of us, becomes a bit crisper, and thoughts of getting together with family and friends, to celebrate the season come to mind. 

Wait. Did somebody just mention pumpkin spice??? Well, let me tell you, we are NOT going easy on the pumpkin or the pumpkin spice. Man the carving knives or the can openers; it’s full steam ahead with the pumpkin.

Given those thoughts, here’s our round-up post of Halloween party food and drink ideas that we’ve pulled together. Some are for kids. Some are for grown-up kids.

And the sweet treats at the end would suit just about anyone, of any age. We bet you’ll find AT LEAST one or two that you’ve got to try this year!
