Halloween Trick Or Treat Party Recap!

Our Halloween Trick Or Treat Party went very well! Friends gathered to have dinner and then trick or treat in our neighborhood. The kids table was set with spiderweb table cloth and treat buckets with glow bracelets! The kids had mummy dogs and ghostly grilled cheese sandwiches.

While the kids ate we cocktailed. We served Vampires Kisses (vodka and cherry juice) for the ladies and Eyeball highballs (Martinis with ice with an olive frozen inside) for the guys.

When the kids were finished, they watched Halloween Spooktacular and the adults dined on:


Spinach Salad With Garlic Dressing
Ghostly Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (Smoked Gouda and tomato on pumpernickle/ rye swirl bread, Cheddar with bacon on Egg bread, and Mozzarella, pesto, tomato on sour dough bread)
and
Tomato Consume Soup!
Then we went off to trick or treat with the kids. If you think you don't like Halloween, go trick or treat with some 4 and 5 year olds. The excitement was tangible. The neighbors who we never see were so excited to see our little dragons, snow white's, pirates and princesses. It made me remember how wonderful it is to be a kid. To feel safe enough to be scared of silly things. To race home with your bucket of candy excited to see what you got. The kids said it was the best night of their lives. Mine too.
