Halloween Party Suggestions

Halloween, the night of October thirty-first, is the time of the year when one is supposed to be able to look into the future and have one's fate settled for the coming year.

So why not invite friends to a Halloween party and join in the fun of trying some of the ways of finding out what the future holds in store. The traditions of this night don't change, but there are new ways of adapting them for parties.

Create the proper atmosphere by having some spooky decorations for the guests to come through and have them come in costume and masked.

Keep the refreshments simple, but appropriate for a Halloween party.

The table should be gay and festive with decorations to accent the magic of the night and to add atmosphere to your party.

After the little spooks and goblins have made the early evening rounds of trick or treat, they will be ready and hungry for some refreshments.

For the small fry, serve ham and cheese sandwiches, ginger bread, cup cakes and witch's brew which is really spiced apple cider.

To make the sandwiches slice hamburger buns in half spread lightly with butter and toast under the broiler. Top with a slice of ham and one of cheese. Another sandwich could be added, a peek-a-boo one; make by spreading a mixture of equal parts of finely chopped raisins and peanut butter on round of white bread top with a round in which eyes, nose, and mouth have been snipped out with scissors.

With these serve hot mulled cider.
