I don't know if I am having a party for Halloween this year.
You might be having a party. Okay my parties are just me and my kids usually. Though this year I might add my mother and sister to it. We will see.
My husband likes to make real food when we invite people over, but I know not everyone has the time.
When you don't have time to cook for your Party
If you don't have the time to make a big spooky feast for your Halloween party here some fun and super easy ideas. The only thing easier would be hiring a caterer or just being a guest at someone else's party.
Have lots of fun. It's your party. Make sure they are foods you and your friends would want to eat. If you hate dip and none of your friends will touch it then you don't have to serve it. Make sure you have to keep all food properly at the right temperature. Even easily prepared food must be stored and handled right.

Halloween Party snack Ideas Hawaiian punch Hawaiian punch is tasty and a good shade of red. These need no mixing. You can also use Kool-Aid or flavor-aid drink mixes. The instructions are on the packages but you need sugar.Gummy WormsCandy shaped like worms might be just what you need. Just open package and place in a bowl. Some places sell gummy bugs as well. If you are vegetarian most of these contain gelatin from bones so read the package.
Salsa dip Put a block of cream cheese on a plate poor your favorite salsa and its done. Serve with your favorite chips.
Spooky cookie Platter Buy your favorite cookies and arrange them on a platter in spooky formations such as creepy faces, and monster. Will lose formation as soon as people start eating the cookies.
Spooky Soda Labels I saw Halloween themed soda labels for sale at dolor general but I am sure Wal-Mart will also have them. You can re-label your favorite sodas with spooky names. ( you might want to add a note card of what the sodas really are for any guest food allergies or soda preferences.
Baby carrots Properly wash and serve. Baby carrots are perfect by themselves or with a ranch and onion dip.
Creepy eyes Get a jar of creepy olives poor in a bowl and put a sign saying eye balls. Get some small tongs or toothpicks.
Grapes Sweet washed and slightly chilled grapes are perfect for any party.
Ideas Creepy Dip Add some food coloring to premade dips to give it an odd color like red green or purple. Serve with crackers and chips.
Halloween Candy bowl Buy some big bags of your favorite wrapped Halloween candy open them and poor them in a bowl.
Frozen Pizza Ghouls I make my own pizza dough but you don't have to. Buy some pepperoni and design a face on frozen cheese pizzas. (Follow cooking instructions on box) and serve. If you are too busy you can always order pizza.
Sandwich Station Put some rolls, and a section of cheeses, vegetables vegan chesses and or lunch meats. Have some mustard and other sandwich condiments. Let people make their own sandwiches. A salad bar could be done, or a pie bar.
Vanilla pudding Mix With a little food die vanilla pudding could be made into a whole bunch of different colors. (If you have guests who don't like food coloring you could also search for natural food coloring on the internet or call your local health food store.
Check if their are any local bakeries who do seasonal cupcakes and donuts like pumpkin.
