Halloween is one of the most popular holidays of the year – mainly because it involves so much creativity in décor, costumes, and food. And who doesn’t love coming up with funny ideas or at least appreciating the creative efforts of their friends and neighbors?
If you plan on throwing a Halloween get-together with friends, BackCountry has you covered for festive Halloween “tricks.” Check out our Pinterest board we put together just for our residents! There, you’ll find all kinds of inspiration, like these Mason Jar Mummies – a fun arts and craft project for the kids. If you’re up for a spooky good time, blindfold your party participants and make them stick their hands in this “bowl of worms.” And if you’re a Star Wars fan, how amazing are these R2-D2 and C-3PO pumpkins?
If you’re in search of some yummy “treats,” we have you covered there, too. We’ve put together a recipe board that is perfect for parties or for just getting in the Halloween spirit. Don’t these Spider Web Pizza Snacks look scrumptious? (Okay, maybe “scrumptious” isn’t the best adjective for horror-themed food.) If you want to go for the ultimate zombie food – serve up brains. (Mmmmm…brains…) Even vegetarians can get in on the gruesome theme with this veggie tray masterpiece.
And of course, Halloween isn’t Halloween without costumes! We discovered lively ideas for family Halloween costumes, including this clever Addams Family suggestion. And if your kid is gunning to win the Fright Night Costume Contest at the Sundial House on October 27, try suggesting unique costumes, like a bag of Jelly Bellys, a kissing booth, or a bowl of pasta.
Kids can’t hog all the fun this holiday, so we also provided costume ideas for couples, like this Marge & Homer getup. If you’re going out with your girlfriends, you can easily pull off the Bachelor Contestant costume. And why not dress up your dog as a martini? Seriously, that would be a huge hit.
We hope these Halloween suggestions help make for a frightfully good night! Make sure you send us your Fright Night and trick-or-treat costume photos, or tag @backcountryco on Instagram! We look forward to seeing all of the crazy and creative ideas you come up with.
