Our party plans, any suggestions?

My annual Halloween night party is tomorrow night. We now have kids and adults. It’s mostly geared towards kids yet it’s important to me that the adults have a great time as well. It’s a very casual celebration. I just wanted to get everyone’s input upon my menu, games, and everything else. Suggestions are very welcome.


chilli beans with various things like Fritos, cheese, onions to add as they such as

warm sausage, rotel, cream cheese dip with chips

toasted ham and Switzerland sliders

3 different containers of fondue dip: chocolate, caramel, snickers

To dip within fondue: Apple slices, pineapple, bananas, marshmallows, pretzels, zombie cookies, rice Krispy treats

Orange impact served in my fountain, warm spiced apple cider, and I also have keurig coffee and hot cocoa

Various people wanted to provide things also. I know others are getting:

Spinach dip and veggies

Chicken spread with veggies and croissants

Pumpkin cupcakes

There are a few more people that are bringing things but Now i’m not sure what yet

Kids are all bringing pumpkins to carve and I have all the carving supplies. We will give out trophies.

I have a skeleton scavenger search set up where each team will have to find all the parts of their particular skeleton ( they are all different colors) and set it together. First team to finish wins.

Pin the nasal area on the witch

Candy corn toss where they work with a companion and one holds a cup, a single tosses the corn. Whoever has got the most in the cup wins.

Pumpkin rolling.. whoever rolls the particular pumpkin the longest distance is victorious

Eyeball in spoon competition

We will have a fireplace going outside and our 20′ screen set up outside playing Halloween night movies that are appropriate for everyone.

The whole time we (adults) will be mentioning on and off how this crazy guy broke out of a good institution not far away. Then later we will get a " call" from our neighbor that their son has been hunting in the woods back behind our house and saw someone hanging out on our property. Of course we will need to go see what’s going on. So we will allow a few of the older kids to go with us. We are going to have a campsite set up with camping tent and various things. We will then get a little uneasy and say we need to get out of there. On the way back my brother in law will be hiding and jump out or some thing along those lines. We are going to make sure all the mom and dad k ow there will be a similar to so if they think their kids can not handle it, they just refuse to let them go.

Any ideas for the scare to make it much better? We have what looks like a body tied up I a garbage handbag. We may notice that on the way back prior to the scare.
