It’s day two of Halloween-palooza. If you missed yesterday, I shared a gaggle of ideas for Halloween party decor.
Today, it’s food time. Which is my favorite time.
But before we get to the monster munch, I nearly forgot to share one of my favorite areas to decorate yesterday – the stairs. These are the only kind of mice allowed in my house – black paper mice for decoration.
Now, let’s chat about Halloween food. Because we were catering to toddlers, I wanted simple food. But, since adults would also be in the house, I wanted to have fun with the Halloween theme. Most of these ideas were found on Pinterest, so I’ll try to share the inspiration as I go.
First … mandarin oranges cups with a Jack ‘O Lantern face in Sharpie. (Inspired by The Sweatman Family.)
And my favorite – banana ghosts and orange pumpkins. (Inspired by Space Ships and Laser Beams.) (Ryan informed me that the oranges were NASTY and the celery ruined them. FYI. I still think they are cute.)
And who could forget the drinks – I had to wrap all the water in scrapbook paper with washi tape. Because I’m insane.
And I was so stinkin’ excited to make this Candy Corn Punch. (Inspired by Better Homes and Gardens.) It didn’t turn out perfectly, but I think it still looked like candy corn. It may have been uber-sweet, but everyone seemed to like it. And my kid drank so much of it that he’s still bouncing off the walls. (I cannot imagine why. ORANGE SODA.)
What are you making for your Halloween parties?
