Dressing up and participating in local activities is just part of the fun of Halloween. No matter where you live, there will be at least one party, costume contest, or get-together that you want to be a part of. You’ve been invited; you know what you are going to wear, but what else should you be concerned about? Here are a few things to ponder when it comes to being a guest at a Halloween event.
Bring Something Along to Share
Never come into someone’s home empty-handed. Because so much of this holiday emphasizes treats and goodies, look up a few Halloween dessert recipes. Look for recipes with a healthy twist to make sure you have something to snack on while visiting. Dress up whatever it is you bring in something festive. Add little tombstones to your cupcakes or make your cake look like a witch’s hat. You can trick your host and hostess into trying a treat that is actually healthy.
Eat Before You Go
While it may not sound like much fun, you know that Halloween events in your area are jam-packed with all sorts of tempting treats. It can be tough to watch everyone else indulge when you can’t find one thing on the table that will fit with your current food decision. Make it a little easier by preparing an interesting meal before you go. Make it a real treat so that you don’t feel left out at the event. Create one of your favorite desserts or treats and remind yourself that it is waiting on the counter for you to get home.
