Must see Halloween TV

Parties or not, there is nothing like a scary flick to set the Halloween mood. Everyone's tastes are different, but these classics never fail! Halloween (Original) (1978) You just can’t beat the one and only true version of the Michael Myers adventures. The background music and theme song are classic Halloween materials that never gets old.

Night of the Demons (1988) A bunch of 80’s kids partying might sound boring, but this party is far from it! An instant cult classic, this movie does actually have its scary moments that will make you look behind you a time or two! V/H/S (2012) A simple plan to nab a videotape leads to so much more. This movie is not for those who get scared easily!

Spooky drink & decor ideas

What is Halloween without drinks or Halloween decor? With many ideas (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) you can be as simple or creative as you want. You may be surprised at how easy it is to create some of these classic drinks in just a few minutes.

It isn't just the drinks that get people's attention. The ambiance is just as important. How about a bowl of punch that never stops releasing smoke? And it has floating hands in it to keep it cool? Making the smoking punch bowl is easy as 1-2-3. All you need is dry ice and water. Add three or four pieces of dry ice to a punch bowl and add lukewarm water, and presto - instant scary decoration is born. Check out the video below to see how simple this is to do.

As for drinks, one of our personal favorites is the Glowing Jell-O-Shots. Yes, they really glow! We got this idea from Delish.com and it is simple to make. The secret to making your jello-shots light up is to use only tonic water—not half tonic, half tap water. That is the key!

All you need is 2 cups tonic water, 2 packages Jell-O (two flavors; we used pineapple and orange for the Halloween effect, and that is what is suggested) 1 cup of water and 1 cup of vodka.

Here are the steps to make your jello-shots glow.

Step 1:

Pour one cup tonic water into a pot over high heat. When it begins to boil, add the pineapple Jell-O mix. Be sure to stir until the mix has dissolved, then pour in half a cup of water and half a cup of your favorite vodka.

Stir to combine. Pour the Jell-O into shot glasses, filling them about two-thirds of the way up.

Place in the refrigerator to cool for at least a half-hour.

Step 2:

As the first layer cools, start making the orange Jell-O, in the same manner as you did in step 1. Top each of the pineapple Jell-O shot glasses with the orange Jell-O mixture. Return the shots to the fridge to set, 2 to 3 hours. Instant Halloween fun!

No matter how you celebrate your Halloween fun this year, be responsible and don't drink and drive - and don't overdo the candy either!

Happy Halloween!
