Halloween Trick or Treat Bar

Halloween is all about treats. From desserts to bags full of candy, but what about the tricks? The tricks can be even more fun than the treats and who doesn’t love playing a little trick on or adult friends. It’s a great adult Halloween party idea and also fun for teens!

For this Halloween party theme, we chose a trick or treat party. This set-up is so easy and can be done in a smaller space too! It brings out the kid in all of us.

How to Host a Trick or Treat Halloween Party

Halloween Tricks

Fil the bar with fun Halloween tricks that bring nostalgia to guests, especially adults! Examples are little the finger traps, onion candies, lollipops that make your mouth blue, magic ink, cans of fake peanuts, crab flavored candy, animal sounds. All of those classic tricks we loved as kids.

The classic gum trick is too fun! When you pull on the wild cherry gum, it snaps your finger! Also, the onion candy is such a good trick!

Flowers are also a great way to decorated a Halloween bar. If you have it in the budget, hire a local florist create something gorgeous for you. However, you can also make your arrangement with flowers, sicks and greenery!
