But first, we caught up with Holiday Party Expert and celebrity guest blogger Daisy Kuchins for her 4 best Easy Tips to make your holiday haunt more fun than a Vampire's Ball! She told us:
"As the editor of a holiday website, I see a lot of creative Halloween ideas - crafts, recipes, decorating tips and costume ideas start coming in from my writers when October begins. Through the years there are some ideas that I've adopted and are now my go-to’s every year. The common denominator to all these crafts and recipes is that they are super easy, which I am all about. When I need to bring a dish to a party or an activity to do with the kids, these are my favorite EASY Halloween tricks I have up my sleeve."
Craft: Mummified Jar Candle Holders
With a new baby this Halloween, I can truly appreciate DIY and crafts that are easy without necessarily looking it. That’s one reason why I love this decorative craft. It’s cheap to make and you might even have everything you need around the house.
Treat: Tombstone Brownies
This Halloween treat is one of my favorite go-to recipes for parties. They are easy enough to make, since they are only semi-homemade, and they really make me look more creative than I think I am. kids will love to make, and eat these brownies.
Pumpkin Decorating: Halloween Glitter Pumpkins
One reason I love this glitter pumpkin craft is because it can be used for Halloween and Thanksgiving. It is a great inexpensive centerpiece for an elegant Fall bash.
Finger Food: Mummy Dogs
These Halloween appetizers are so ridiculously easy, and both kids and adults will love them. For bite-size appetizers just use cocktail weiners. For a slightly more upscale version use phyllo dough and sausages. If your kids are free have them help you create the mummy dogs; they'll love making them as much as they love eating them.

I'm a good old classic kind of gal, and always remember my dad loving candy corns, and being pretty darn stingy about sharing them...........so I always thought they were pretty special! :-)
Simple...candy corn. May seem boring but they are my favorite this time of year!
Brach's candy pumpkins. They have to be Brach's. And this seems to be the only time of year I ever see Royals. I love them so much!! Pumpkin Spice Hershey's Kisses are pure evil!
I love candy apples!
I love Twix and Milky Way!
My favorite Halloween candies have always been Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Candy Corn M&Ms, and the mini Milky way bars
Totally love almond joy, candy corn, and twix. Since the candy bars are small-you feel less guilty about eating them!
Candy corn since you can only get it once a year followed by Smarties and Tootsie Rolls. The kids Know those are for Mom! ;)
Anything with chocolate and peanut butter - to make a good thing even better...add DARK chocolate! YUM!
Reese's pumpkins and candy corn are my fav's!
Reese's Peanut Butter cups. I try to slip a few out of the kids' Halloween bags each year. Shhhh! Don't tell!
My current favorite is York Peppermint Patties. Taste the sensation!
Reese's pieces, Reese's Cup, Butterfinger and Snickers of course are my families favorites!
