I spent so much of my life creating dinner ideas for kids as a working Mom. And, now with all our kids raised, and, yes, with children of their own, we focus on Halloween dinner ideas for adults! Gosh, it's such a great shift. And, bringing together a few folks around the table, that's all decked out in Halloween decor, means we can do it our way!

Ideas Halloween Party

Ideas for a Halloween party shouldn't be complicated. Really here are a few things I've done over the years!

  • Just grab a few earthy twigs and limbs from outdoors, tie them together with a twin and you have witches' brooms.
  • Buy a few pumpkins, the small ones, and put them on the dinner table along with some fallen colorful real leaves that you've flattened for several days under the weight of books. So simple!
  • Tissue paper and small gift bags are so festive. Buy some cheap tissue paper and gift bags (big box stores have this in their gift wrapping area) in orange, white and black. Then create small favors for your guests. Maybe it's a homemade jam. Make some delicious granola and put in small paper lunch bags. Tie with a ribbon! If you haven't tried my Dead Sea Granola, page 90 of my cookbook, then believe me, the ghosts and goblins will love! Honestly, this is THE BEST granola ever!
  • Buy cute inexpensive Halloween flair at the local dollar store. Believe me for five to ten bucks your place will the outfitted!

Witches Brew Soup

When you're making any of these witches' brew soups, be sure to wear your witch hat. And, stir with a large stick, well, really a large wooden spoon. Double double toil and trouble. It adds to the festiveness of the dinner party.

Halloween food ideas really can run the gamut of your imagination. When you're planning you festivities, be sure to give each dish and drink that you serve a clever name that's got that scary flair to it! Write the names of the menu on individual cards and place on the table beside the dish if you're serving more than just soup.

How about these ideas for starters! Then try to make the dish kind of go with the name. Uhhhhh, somehow! LOL!

Easy Soup Recipes

Easy soup recipes are the best for a Halloween relaxing dinner. Sit around the table with good wine. A salad. Some nibbles of sweets. Maybe make it a gathering room dinner with individual food trays and everyone sitting on floor pillows. Have a few games ready to play. Make sure the soup's on the stove for seconds and thirds. You might even have two or three kinds of soups. And, the best part, you can make these soups ahead of time, say two to three days, refrigerate and just warm for your soiree!
