What are the things that I HAVE to have to celebrate Samhain? I haven't been able to get everything I need to practice but am wanting to celebrate. So what do I have to have?
Also, what is the basic ritual to celebrate Samhain? I have seen so many different ways to celebrate that I confused. I am wanting to a basic ritual.

The only thing you need to do is remember loved ones that have passed on. You can leave tokens that remind you of them and pictures if you have any. I too make a supper and set a place for them and set out the remains in the morning in our yard. You can make it elaborate or as simple as you like. As long as you are remembering and honoring those who have passed over its all good.

What do you NEED? Nothing. You can easily do a basic ritual without any tools. However I am assuming you are asking about how to do a more complete ritual or you wouldn't be asking.
Here is an example ritual: http://paganspath.com/magik/wicca/samhain.htm
For this one you need: 2 ritual plus 4 elemental candles, besom (broom), silver/brass or other tray or plate & drinking cup, bell, cakes & drink, incents for a gift to the Goddess, something you can sit on for meditation - you can add to or take from this example. But it's a good start
