Spooky Houses, Trick-or-Treating and More: iVillage's Halloween Party

From loads of candy to DIY haunted gingerbread houses, iVillage did it up right for this year's Halloween Party

At iVillage, we love any excuse to celebrate -- and Halloween is no exception. For our annual party, staffers and kids alike came to our NYC office in costume for an afternoon of trick-or-treating, haunted gingerbread house-decorating, coloring and tons of fun.

Check out these crazy-cute photos (special thanks to our marketing associate and event photographer, Stephanie Porter) and enjoy the adorableness.

Happy Halloween from the iVillage family!

The snacks -- fruit and cheese plates, hummus and veggies, chocolate truffles, decorated Rice Krispie treats and, for the grown-ups, vino -- were delicious, thanks to Treat House, Godiva Chocolate, Popchips and Barrymore Wines.
