Creative Halloween Costumes, Decorations and Party Ideas

Halloween is one of my favorite times of year.  Ever since I was a kid I loved dressing up in Halloween costumes and trick-or-treating.  Now that I'm all grown-up I still enjoy the festivities with my kids and having Halloween parties too.  

It's fun to decorate the house with spooky ghosts and spider webs and pick out the perfect costumes.  Planning a Halloween party with all the autumn foods brings back lots fun memories too.  The weather starts to get cold and you get to make and eat all those fall favorites like caramel apples and pumpkin bread.

I love to see all the creative Halloween decorations that people put in their yards, on their front porches and in their windows all around the neighborhood.  It seems like it's never too early to get your Halloween decorations up.

It's such a joy to see the little ones all dressed up in their favorite superhero costumes or princesses and monsters.  As an adult it is a fun challenge to see how creative you can be with your costume to impress your friends or win the best costume prize at the Halloween party.   You can find lots of great creative costumes ideas for kids.  They have lots of their favorite tv and movie characters as well as superheros and villains.  

Big kids and grown-ups like to get in on the fun too.  You can dress up in creative couples Halloween costumes like Danny and Sandy from Grease or a Gangster and Flapper or Fred and Wilma Flintstone.  There are lots of fun combinations.

The kids love trick-or-treating and of course all that candy.  Now all that sugar might not be the best choice for kids so you may want to try some creative alternatives.  You can give out healthier snacks like individual serving size bags of goldfish crackers or pretzels.  Small toy treats are also a fun choice.  You can purchase those rubber band bracelets that come in all sorts of shapes and colors and give those out as well.   

You also want to make sure that you think about safety.  Halloween can be lots of fun but you want to make sure that everyone stays safe and comfortable.  Having costumes that are warm enough and make it easy for motorist to see you is important for trick-or-treating on a cold dark night.  Carrying a flash light or glow stick or a glow in the dark candy bucket are some good ideas too.
