Budget-Friendly Halloween Recipes and Tips from Shawn Rabideau
Skip the usual orange and black color scheme this Halloween and opt for something a little different. Red is a bold, chic choice that not only packs a big visual punch, but also allows you to recycle staple decorations from Christmas, Valentine’s Day or Fourth of July to keep costs down.
Once you have the decorations down, don’t forget the creepy cocktails for both kids and adults or your Halloween party foods! Read on for all the tips, recipes and more!
