Halloween Open House
Hosting an open house on Halloween is a wonderful way to treat pint-sized goblins and grown-up masqueraders to a night of bewitching fun. We'll show you all the tricks you need to throw a magical party with ease.

In the spirit of the season, transform your home into a haunted house with some spooky decorations. When your guests arrive, serve a buffet-style supper. Our menu features dishes that can be prepared in advance, including a warming pumpkin and bean soup and freshly baked corn bread. And for dessert, what could be more fitting than spiced pumpkin cupcakes and pumpkin ice cream.

Give out prizes for the most creative costumes, and organize some simple games—bob for apples and carve jack-o'-lanterns, with prizes for the scariest and silliest ones. Everyone is sure to have a frightfully good time!
