40 Halloween Party Treats & Food Ideas

Sharing is caring!

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.

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.

    Cute ideas. I like the episode of The Cosby Show where they had their own haunted house. Life in the Huxtible household always seemed like fun.

    • October 27, 2020 / 6:08 pm

      Right, Mary!! That was a good episode, too! (Truly they’re all good!!)

  9. October 27, 2020 / 6:29 pm

    Many cute ideas here, although I’d skip putting a mask on an animal as unlike humans, they can’t untie it to fit properly and could have trouble breathing or become extremely stressed with the mask.
