Easy Halloween Recipes For Your Block Party (1)

What? You don’t throw a Halloween Block Party? Well, perhaps you are invited to a halloween potluck at the office? Are you room mom and need to throw a fabulous halloween party for 30 kiddos at school?

For over 10 years, my neighbors and I throw a halloween block party. From what started as four families with 4 kids has blossomed to dozens of families and oodles of kids! It has grown so much that it doesn’t fit in our garage and now we block off our street.

As the kids get older, the party evolves with them. And now that they are teenagers, ditching mom and dad, it’s now just a coming together of lawn chairs in front of the house. But just because the kids are older, it doesn’t mean we can’t have fun for halloween.

I have scoured the internet looking for the best halloween potluck ideas for you. Some are super creepy, many are kid approved, all are super fun!

And here comes the BEST part of a halloween potluck: the food! I’ve got over 40 recipes including halloween appetizers, main dishes, desserts and drinks… all guaranteed to get you into the spirit of things!

Now go play with your food and Happy Halloween!

Love that top photo. A Halloween block party is a great idea. Our block usually has its annual picnic right around Halloween (cool weather picnics are fun; besides, people haul their fire pits out to the street and we have big roaring fires!). Some of these would be so great for that. Thanks.
