Halloween Entertaining! Dinner Treats n Drinks oh my!

Have I mentioned how much I love Halloween, yea thought so, and we're hosting a themed dinner party which I live for! Right now I'm compiling ideas for food and treats... and since I thought these were so darn cute I figured I'd share them with you because all of you will be hosting a Halloween themed dinner party for 20 people this year right?? Ok maybe not but you never know :)

Dessert first, yummm!!! Easy enough to do, just grab some chocolate pudding, smashed up Oreos, and some Milano cookies and voila.














These are super goary, I think they're awesome! I'd have to get crafty to figure out just how to do this but I'd imagine you just fill some cupcakes with strawberry or cherry preserves and then maybe roll some fondant into worm shapes and mold to look like brains?? Or you could get some white Jelly Beans?? I'm thinking that'd be the easiest way... but the actual recipe is here.















Ok appetizers, I'm loving this idea of the Bloody Brain shrimp cocktail. You can find the recipe from Martha Stewart here.












And the oh so cute eyeball devilled eggs, throw an olive slice on an egg, the simplest of all ideas. Or get fancy and dye your filling green and add veins with sriracha sauce.












Drinks, we can't forget the drinks! Now I can't vouch for the taste of any of these, but they look cute. Jagermeister is a great way to get the black drinks to work rather than black food coloring (and it saves you the purple teeth and lips for the rest of the night). As always there are a million green potions out there like Apple Pucker, Midori, Margaritas that you can mix with orange soda and orange juice.... get creative. The easiest is a clear drink with red bloody edges, easy to do with gel icing. And my favorite drink trick is to get tiny plastic spiders and freeze icecubes with the spiders inside, they make any drink cute!
















And for those non-alcoholic drinks you can throw them into a plastic kettle or a pumpkin lined with a clear tupperware bowl.













As for our menu, we'll be doing a pumpkin soup appetizer, stuffed peppers and salad... nothing too fancy there but good eatin! That's why I need some cutesy ideas to spruce things up and luckily for my husband's sake I'm stopping the creative ideas at that instead of going bonkers and making everything in the house Halloween themed in some way. I will thank myself later for going low key this year ;)

What other themed treats are your favorite? Any suggestions for our dinner party?

**And thank you to the other bloggers out there that have the pictures I needed to share these ideas with you.

And as you go on with your negotiations, you will compromise with the vendor and you will get a
great bargain. Not every one of them is equipped to deal
with cars of fine balance. The costs are affordable and the
service is quality A.

The makers of the sport went crazy with detours and side-quests.
Despite this, movie box office receipts throughout the 1930s jumped 22%.
When the economy falls, the need for escapist entertainment increases.
