Halloween Party Food Spooky Chocolate Dip

Sharing is caring!

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 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.
