What is everyones plans for Halloween?
I am having a Halloween Party the weekend before Halloween. My son and I love Halloween time, but not as much trick-or-treating (we do do it, but it is not our favorite part) We like to have a party each year ☺ My asthma, allergies, and fatigue are always in consideration when hosting a party. Plus my son has food allergies, and I know others do too, so providing a goid mix of safe foods is always a challenge.
I am doing the party in my backyard (I try to keep my indoors as a safe space, so I dont host indoor events at my house). So hopefully the weather will be nice. I also have a front room on a separate portable a/c, as well as carport and backyard.
We are going to have a scavenger hunt for non-food treats. We are going to have a few tents set up with Halloween books where people can tell stories. Some games (like a ghostbusters marshmallow shooting game). I am using my front room to set up a buffet, with lots of a la carte packaged snacks, like baby bel cheeses, mandarin orange cups, assorted chips and crackers (some gluten-free), keeping the ingredient label by each snack. And, I am going to have a pumpkin carving/decorating station as well. I did this last year and it was fun, but I wore myself out too… I am hoping I can do enough prep this year that I dont run myself around at the party!
Is anyone doing anything cool to celebrate, or making any yummy halloween foods?
