Halloween Party Ideas

Halloween Party Ideas

Are you getting all excited for Fall and Halloween? Days are already getting shorter, night falls earlier and earlier and you can feel that Fall is just around the corner! This time of year you start to get in that planning and nesting phase, getting ready for the upcoming holidays and winter.

I found a great site for your Halloween partys, filled with all kinds of ideas from costumes, decorations, food, drinks, games, music & more! Halloween Party Ideas here

Throwing a party around a theme is always a great idea. At my boutique Mystic Rock we have these very easy to use Tarot Cards that would be a hit at your next party! Tarot Deck Tarot Cards click to buy

Set up a little corner or a room where you can have readings. What makes these tarot cards easy to use is that you don't even have to be an expert at readings because the meanings are written right on the cards themselves. Dress up in a gypsy tarot reader outfit and have fun entertaining your guest. Another little fun idea is using a pendulum to answer questions, have guest ask a question and see what the pendulum has to say. Pendulums are also available at Mystic Rock.

Harvest Pumpkin Muffins

Now that Autumn will soon be here, it's time to get baking again. This nice Pumpkin muffin is killer in the morning with a nice cup of tea or coffee. Makes a healthy snack for the children at school or hubby to take to work. I've also added raisins with this recipe for extra goodness :)

Harvest Pumpkin Muffins

Makes 12 muffins
•1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
•1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
•1 teaspoon baking soda
•1/4 teaspoon salt
•1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
•1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
•1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
•1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, softened
•3/4 cup honey
•1 egg
•1 cup solid pack pumpkin
•1 cup chopped toasted walnuts

In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg; set aside. Using an electric mixer, beat butter until light; beat in honey, egg and pumpkin. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing until just blended; stir in walnuts. Spoon into 12 greased or paper-lined 2-1/2 inch muffin cups. Bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove muffins from pan to wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
