Halloween party food ideas- Halloween’s a holiday that I hold near and dear to my heart. My kids were born on October 29th and November 1st!

I went into labor on October 31st as I walked my little sister around the neighborhood trick-or-treating. Trying to “walk that baby out!” (Do women still do that?)

I was thrilled that my kids were born so close to Halloween so I could have a reason to dress up and host countless costume parties!

Halloween party goals

Ever since I was a kid and saw on The Cosby Show Vanessa Huxtable’s home Halloween party, it’s been my thing to host the best Halloween themed birthday parties.

The Cosby Show Season 2 Episodes- Vanessa Halloween Party

Vanessa’s Halloween party is in season 2 and the episode where we meet, for the first time, her first crush, Robert.

You may remember, while daydreaming about Robert, Vanessa drops an entire tray of punch-filled party glasses and runs off embarrassed— like any perfectly normal teenage girl!

 

Halloween treats matter- like big-time matter!

Overall, Vanessa’s costume party was Halloween goals, less the untimely spill- although she did end up with Robert by episode end!

I got to live out my own Huxtable Halloween through countless birthday parties for my kids!

One thing I learned that’s timeless and true in Southern hospitality for Halloween parties, especially for kids, is that treats matter! The more unique and creative, the better— with bonus points for the ooey-gooey jelly frosting or gummy-worm additions!

Here are 40 easy Halloween ideas that come together quickly for your very own #Goals Huxtable Halloween party for kids at home.
