I always figured once I reached adulthood, Halloween was the kind of holiday I would just assume leave to the kiddies. But then I got into having people over for dinner, and realized how incredibly fun hosting for Halloween can be. And while I'm still not terribly creative with my costumes (I stuffed balloons down my shirt last year and called myself Dolly Parton), I do like to pull out all the stops with my home decor and food.
I'm not hosting a dinner this year, but if you happen to be, check out these great links to create the perfect fright night. It's a mix of simple autumnal fare and shticky snacks.
