Jess: Halloween is just around the corner! Each year Andrew and I like to throw a party full of movies, treats, and games. Hosting a Halloween themed board game party can be a lot of fun, especially if you go the extra mile to do things like make up a menu of spooky snacks to pair with games. Here are a few recipes and games to inspire your inner party-planner.
