Halloween Mantel and Tips for Creating the Perfect Halloween Party

Halloween is such a fun holiday!  Whether you have children or not, it is the perfect excuse for a party! We host our friends for trick or treat every year.  A fire pit on the driveway, some good food, and lots of decorations make it a fun tradition.  The dads take the kids around to trick or treat and the moms hang back and hand out the candy.

I don't go over the top on the decorations for Halloween in my home, but I do enjoy decorating my mantel and adding a few touches here and there to be festive.

    Love the “pick your poison” bar! Great ideas even though I cannot do spiders. Deathly afraid of them and my husband makes fun of me because I do the icky dance whenever I see one. I bet the themed snacks were really fun to make. Pinning.
