ACTIVITY:

Halloween Cupcake Papers, from Crate and Barrel

Sip wine or cocktails while decorating; chat, and enjoy each others company while whipping up delightful Halloween treats. Provide (or ask guests to bring) cupcake containers, carriers or boxes so they can take their baked goods home.

Black Non-Pareils, on Amazon

Pre-bake a few dozen Halloween cupcakes - some vanilla, some chocolate, some pumpkin, etc. That way they're ready for your guests to decorate after dinner. Provide lots of fun decorating supplies - colors, frostings, non-pareils, Halloween-colored sanding sugar, etc.
