Whether you’ll be heading out or staying in this year, here are three fun and easy ideas to keep in mind for a ‘spooktacular’ Halloween weekend.
1. Have plenty of evening festivities
There are plenty easy and affordable options you can plan to do with loved ones on this day. If you’re spending the night indoors, deck out some Halloween-themed cookies or cupcakes (or both!). If movies are your thing, curl up for a scary movie marathon. Set the mood by lighting candles, have a warm blanket on hand and maybe some mulled wine to really set the tone!
2. For an extra boo-zy evening
Consider mixing up some Halloween-themed cocktails, using special flavours like blood orange bitters or sweet vermouth to create some amazing Halloween colours. If you’re feeling extra fancy, host a wine and candy tasting party. Pick up some confectionary favourites and vino and you’ve got yourself a sophisticated Halloween affair.
3. You’re going to need food too
Candy should not be the only source of food at home – whether you have just come back from taking the little ones trick-or-treating or planning on staying-in with friends, there should be plenty of options for everyone to snack on. Try a few of our savoury topped crisps to add to your snack table. Our limited-edition lesley stowe raincoast crisps® pumpkin spice crackers have a warm and wonderful Fall flavour with hints of cinnamon, raisins and pecans. Top these delicious crisps with brie and a balsamic jelly for a delicious and easy-to-make appetizer. Another option is our pear and fig mostrada – a simple dip that can be paired with our lesley stowe raincoast crisps® gingerbread and spiced pear.
An evening in or an evening out, the best memories are those with good food, entertainment and time with good company. So now that you’re all set, get ready for a safe, healthy and ‘spooktacular’ Halloween!
