I love Halloween, do you? Every year someone in my family host a big Halloween party filled with spooky food, costume contests, games, and spirits. My son and his wife are the ones who generally host this gathering. They usually go with a theme like wrestling, 80’s era, popular TV characters, you get the gist. It’s always tons of fun and we look forward to it every year.
I don’t think I have been to a party where there wasn’t food, and our Halloween parties are full of spooky dishes. Check out these spooky party tables.
Halloween is more that just food. To us it means a trip to the pumpkin patch. I might love it more that the kids do. Oops, did I just say that out loud? In the boise area we had two amazing pumpkin patches, Linder Farm, which unfortunately closed this year and The Farmstead. I used to go to both every year, but now I am limited LOL. At the Farmstead youu can find several food vendors, hay rides, corn mazes, pumpkins of various colors and much more. Here’s a link to check them out yourself. https://www.lowefamilyfarmstead.com/idahos-original-corn-maze
I could go on and on about the pumpkin patch, but it’s time to move on to the actual pumpkin carving! Often we plan a family night together to carve pumpkins and have dinner. Some of us are talented in this area, but I just do the best I can. I am a cook, not a pumpkin carver!
After the pumpkin carving, we gear up for the costume party, which is always fun! I am amazed by some of the costumes over the years. Like I mentioned before, often the parties are themed. Here are a few pictures from the past.
As you can see, we clearly have a great time during Halloween! Post your comments on how you celebrate this holiday. I look forward to seeing how others celebrate!
