A Halloween Party Good Enough for Martha Stewart

Tiffany Madison

Want to be a hit at your Halloween bash this year? I have some fun party ideas that will make you look like a rock star, cool, young Martha Stewart, sans her snobby demeanor and old lady sweaters.


While this might look difficult, it’s not. I PROMISE! It just takes a little time, some planning and a can do attitude. (If I can do this, you can too.)

I moved to Missoula last fall. I didn’t have many friends, and besides a job, not a lot going on. I decided that throwing a cool party would help me get to know my co-workers a little better outside the office setting.

Pumpkin Invitations

 
 

I invited everyone with hand painted, cardboard pumpkins I bought from Michaels. Inside I placed a sparkly sticker and filled it up with candy. I put all the details of the party on the back. B.Y.O.P. (Bring Your Own Pumpkin).

Halloween Wreath

 
 

My guests were greeted at the door with this boo-ifulI wreath. I started with a plain Styrofoam wreath, picked out some cool ribbon, used some pins to secure the ribbon and added some fun Halloween ornaments.

Fang-Tinis

 
 

These are Dracula approved. I mixed to taste Cherry Schnapps and my favorite vodka. (You could also use a Grape Schnapps for a morbid look.)

In some fun glasses, (I didn’t have enough martini classes so I improvised) I took red gel frosting and dripped it around the edge to look like dripping blood. I finished it off by dropping in some cheap colored fangs. (I purchased a pack of 20 at Wal-Mart.) My friends and I decided to have some fun with them later and pose for pictures.

Drunken Worms

 
 

These are THE best for ANY party your throw! They will be a HUGE hit! You need to start them two to three days before you plan to serve them.
Get your favorite gummies. (The sugar-free kind work best as they soak up more vodka then the regular gummies.) Lay out the gummies flat in a glass baking dish, cover with vodka. (I used cotton candy flavored vodka.) Cover tightly with plastic wrap, stick it in the freezer and in a couple days they will be the delicacy of your party. The day of your party, divvy up the gummies in small containers (the same ones you use to make Jell-O shots in). Make sure you keep any leftover vodka. It tastes great and you can use it in the Fang-Tinis!

Halloween Brew (non-alcoholic)

 
 

Just mix Hi-C and 7-Up/Sprite. You can even drop in some candy eyeballs for a little extra umph.

I jazzed up the traditional caramel apple.... After coating the apples with delish caramel, I used crushed up almonds, sparkly sprinkles, chocolate covered raisins, candy corn... Use your imagine and create a whole new combo.

The candy corn cheesecake I piped inside of slender shot glasses looked posh and are SO simple!

Cemetery Pudding

 
 

I used Milano cookies for the tombstone inside the cemetery pudding. I wrote RIP with a paintbrush and liquid food coloring.

I ran out of time to put the finishing touches on the spider web pizza. If you have time (and the patience), you can use a black olive as the spider on the web

These mini mummies didn't sit around to become mummified. They were the first finger food to be polished off.

Jack O'Lantern Fruit Cups

 
 

This is an easy and simple idea for your kids to help you with. Take the cheap-o, no name peach/mandarin orange cups, grab a black permanent marker and start drawing.

Who can resist the sweet temptation of a chocolate covered ghostly strawberry?

How weird does this witch's finger look?! I used cocoa powder for the dark color around the knuckles.

Chocolate Fingers

 
 

I used a chocolate mold I bought at Michaels to make these happen. I used a paint brush to brush in the different colors.

I put these in a cup and filled the cup with candy corn to help the fingers stand up straight.
