A Halloween dinner party is a classy way to entertain your family and friends before Halloween. You can also do this as a celebration of October, the gateway to Autumn, Halloween and our favorite time of year. Keep the party small, six to eight people is a nice number that won't over crowd your dinning room table. As they arrive, serve some small appetizers and drinks.

While you are getting the dinner courses finished and ready to serve, your guests can mingle and discuss plans for this years yard haunts, new props they have made or purchased and just talk about Halloween in general. For a classy Halloween dinner party, ask our guest to dress semi-formal, with coats and ties for the men, and dresses for the ladies. Allow costumes to be worn only if they are very dressy, such as a Gothic vampire men's suit or women's floor length dress. Check out the top three costumes on the Halloween Online costume pages to see what we mean. Something like these, minus the fangs and vampire make-up make for a very classy look.

For decorations, you could set up table top Halloween Village. Most mass retailers are coming out with their own sets of these that are less expensive then the ones available at craft stores. Place displays of autumn leaves, mini pumpkins, gourds and other Fall foliage around the living room and dinning area. You can make a very nice Halloween centerpiece for your dinning table using Autumnal silk flowers and a medium sized pumpkin. Check out Halloween Online Craft section for instructions. Use a nice linen Halloween tablecloth for your table along with cloth napkins, Halloween napkin rings and tableware. A Halloween tree makes a great addition to your other decorations.

A full course meal including appetizers, soup, salad, entree and a desert. Fresh apple cider, spiced tea and red wine are good choices for drinks. For the main course we like to use pumpkin, you can find main meal recipes at The Pumpkin Patch as well as ideas for all courses. Dessert is usually a sweet treat of Crème Brule' served in individual small pumpkin bowls.

Whether you go with classy or casual, a Halloween dinner party is a nice way to usher in the season with close friends and family. For more on putting a Halloween Dinner party together, go to HalloweenCostumeParty.com.
