Are you hosting a Halloween get-together this year? Create a very spooky setting with dry ice, and you will have a scary social gathering that nobody will forget! We have put together a handy list of ways to use dry ice to wow all of your party guests, but make sure that you stay safe with these guidelines before you start the spooky party. Read on to learn more!
Do not limit dry ice to just your table decorations. You could create a spook-facular cocktail for everyone that is safe to drink. Dry ice can come in the form of sticks filled with food-safe dry ice pellets. Once this stick is placed in the cocktail, it will start to create a fog that flows over your beverage’s brim. These flowing foggy cocktails are big crowd-pleasers that are sure to have all of your guests raving about your Halloween party for many years to come.
Did you spend any time carving pumpkins for the holiday weekend? Show off your jack-o-lanterns with flowing fog seeping out of its eyes and mouth! Just before your guests show up, place a bowl of hot water inside of your pumpkin, and then put a piece of dry ice into the water, and watch the fog start to flow out of the pumpkin. Place your pumpkin on top of your table to have the fog float around, or place your pumpkin outside your home and let the fog flow down your front porch. The carbon dioxide from the dry ice will snuff out the candle inside your jack-o-lantern. So use a battery-powered pumpkin light to keep it glowing. They’re safer than your usual candle.
A Witch’s Cauldron
A boiling witch’s brew is a simple option for a spooky centerpiece. Grab a black cauldron from a Halloween store or dollar store. Cover the sides with some cobwebs and spiders to make it look even scarier. Place a piece of dry ice inside the cauldron and then add hot water. Watch with delight as your cauldron boils over. You’ll need to add or replace hot water and dry ice pieces over the course of the night to keep the boiling effect looking good.
