The Official Brit + Co. Guide to a Happy Halloween
Happy Halloween Brit + Co. readers! The day is finally here, and we’ve spent a month gearing up for an epic night of spooky sweets, devilish drinks, meme-inspired costumes, and pumpkins upon pumpkins. Here’s our ultimate guide to a happy Halloween.
First, you’ve gotta get your costume going. We’ve rounded up inspiration from, creative couples, makeup artists, DIYers, and even created our predictions for the most popular costumes of 2012.
You know we love us a batch of spiked sweets, and Halloween happens to be perfect for a bit of devilishness. Fromserved in chocolate shot glasses to Cointreau Cupcakes and our super creepy Blood + Bones Jello shots, this Halloween was definitely boozy.
Can’t have your tricks without your treats! Clockwise from the top left, here’s what we cooked up:; Candy Corn Popcorn Cones; Pumpkin Spice S’moreos; Eyeball and Mummy Cakeballs; (Gummy) Worm-Infested Ice Cubes; and an Ombre Candy Corn Cake.
Next item of business? The decor! To create a haunted Halloween setting, try adorning your tables and walls with spideryand serving classic candies in ghostly goodie bags. And to add a touch of sophistication to your soiree, check out roundup of glittered pumpkins, vintage table cards, and letterpress invitations.
Though our favorite parts about Halloween are DIY tricks and spooky treats, we’ve gotta give props to a few different ways folks are going digital this year. Theis totally incredible and turning your friends into zombies via photo apps is pretty much the jam. (For a prettier take on the zombie, we also have a tutorial on that.)
Even if you’re not a Halloween fanatic, who can resist a season that’s all about pumpkin? Whether we were mixing up, baking up Pumpkin Fondue, heating up Pumpkin Curry Soup, frying Pumpkin Pancakes, blending up Skinny Pumpkin Fro Yo, or shaking and sipping a Pumpkintini.
And you can’t forget about your pup! The Snooki costume is all sorts of wrong… and right?
