Everybody Loves a Party!
Looking to host the perfect children's Monster Mash Bash? Well, look no further. Herein lie some party tips that'll turn your Halloween party into a scary funfest. They're cheap and easy to create.

Just remember three things when planning your party: Decorations. Food. Sound.


Black and orange should be the color theme. But don't go overboard. Too much of a good thing can turn into a bad thing. Add a few lighting effects and some scary twists and you've got the makings of a successful party.

* Lots and lots of black and orange crepe paper. Twist it. Crinkle it. Hang it from the ceiling.

* Lighting should be dim enough for the kids to see shadows along walls, etc.

* A few blinking lights strategically placed will certainly be scary. * Blue or black low-watt light bulbs create a dark cloud of mystery.

* Scatter leaves on the floor for a haunted atmosphere. Have a few small fans blowing so the leaves "dance" around the room.

* Dangle black cardboard bats (they're easy to make) from the ceiling.

* Hang plastic spiders from the ceiling.

* Pumpkins. Pumpkins. Pumpkins. All sizes and shapes. Use them to decorate the food table. Use them as prizes for games. Have the children color them, paint them, carve them (with supervision), and take them home. Nothing says Halloween like a good patch of pumpkins.

* Buy helium balloons and cover them with lightweight white material. With a black marker color in two spots for eyes and you'll have floating ghosts. Boo!


In the tradition of Halloween, you'll want to keep it sweet, sweet and sweeter. Be sure to try one of the following:

* A cauldron full of "witch's brew." Begin with a mixture of your favorite fruit juices and add chunks of fruit. Kids will love it.

* Serve the brew in a "cauldron." Take any large bucket and wrap it in black paper. Use a large stick (yes, a stick from the woods) to stir the mixture.

* Place bowls of dry ice around the brew and as it evaporates a cloud will surround the area.

* Serve cupcakes and cookies with black and orange frosting.

* As a centerpiece for your table, have a Halloween sheet cake. Yum!

* Candy, candy and lots of candy. Bowls of candy corn, black and orange jelly beans, and black and orange M&M's are sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.

* Try the traditional bobbing for apples.

* How about pizza? Every child loves it and it's only a phone call away.

* And don't forget apple cider to wash down the delicious food. It's part of Halloween's history.


Once you've got the decorations and the food ready, all you need to do is add the sound effects. Nothing too loud but something that fits the Halloween spirit.

* Every time you pass by a window, make sure you look out and howl at the moon. Guaranteed to get the kids giggling and howling along.

* Popular songs such as "Ghostbusters," "Time Warp" and the theme from "The Addams Family" are perennial favorites.

* Go to your nearby record store and buy special effects CDs that have all your favorite Halloween sounds - creaking doors, slamming windows, breaking windows, and screams.

* And don't forget one of our favorite Halloween songs: Bobby "Boris" Picket & The Cript Kickers' "Monster Mash." Be the first to start a monster dance and watch the little ones transform themselves into a dancing frenzy!
