Halloween parties are an annual tradition of mine. I break out my Halloween decorations, and while the orange and black décor looks great, it’s so much of the same, year in and year out. This year, I’ve decided to brighten up my Halloween party with a technicolor theme. Rainbow bagels, rainbow hair, rainbow everything – it’s all so hot right now, so why not?! Halloween isn’t just about witches and spiders. It’s a celebration of everything different from the rest of the year.
And just because I’m adding a colorful theme, doesn’t mean I have to remove the spooky from the party. The new Jolly Rancher Lollipops have given me a “treat-spiration.” These new lollipops are perfect for trick or treaters, but also for the actual party!

To celebrate things that are different, here is a twist on a sweet treat. I’m going to make some colorful drinks.
What you need:
- Jolly Rancher Lollipops in cherry and green apple
How to Make:
- Put two green apple-flavored Jolly Rancher Lollipops in a glass of water until the candy has completely melted and the water has turned into a delicious green apple flavored drink.
- In a separate glass, put two cherry-flavored Jolly Rancher Lollipops in a glass of water until the candy has completely melted and the water has turned into a delicious cherry flavored drinks
- Once the Jolly Rancher Lollipops have completely dissolved into the water, throw away the lollipop sticks.
While this is super simple to make, I’m going to step it up a notch by putting them in test tubes and labeling the cherry drink “Blood” and the green apple drink “Zombie Blood!” This is a perfect drink for kids and adults.
This will be sure to Halloween-ify your colorful party.
You can also make a big “blood” bowl for the party by simply multiplying the recipe based on the size of the bowl.
To go with our technicolor theme, you can decorate with colorful balloons. If you’re not a big fan of inflating balloons and don’t want to get a helium tank, a great alternative is to cut out circles from card stock and hang from a string.
There are so many fun options when it comes to costumes. If you’re looking for a group costume, you can have each person dress up as a different color of the rainbow. If group costumes aren’t for you, my favorite thing on Halloween is changing my hair color, so you can try hair chalk and do rainbow colored hair. You could also stick with just one color such as pink or blue!
If you’re looking for a costume for your little one, you can choose a unicorn or fairy. How cute is this costume?
Come to think of it, I wonder if they make it for adults…
What would you dress up as at our technicolor party?
