2010 Haunt: Cemetery Gates

Posted in Halloween Food & Desserts, Planning, Props, Themes & Party Ideas on November 1, 2010 by bojo

Had a great party for our little bunch on Saturday. We spent most of our time on the small front yard cemetery and the flickering candles. The best was when everyone was meandering through the cemetery and checking out the stones.

Here are a few pics of decor and party people: Public Facebook Album

Food: Stuffed Jalapenos, Chicken Flautas, Tomatillo Ranch Dip, Pinwheels, Lil Smokies in a tangy mustard-based BBQ sauce, Kettle-cooked chips, peach cobbler, brownie trifle.
Drinks: Pre-mixed Rum Runners, white wine sangria, blackberry merlot

Thoughts on 2011: We never really decorate the kitchen, but inevitably, everyone ends up in there. It’s a small kitchen, too! There were 10 people packed in the tiny room at one point. Crazy people. Perhaps next year we’ll put ALL our effort into decorating the kitchen ONLY so people will stand around in some other room 🙂

Our friends love the party so much they were already thinking of themes for next year. These were the ideas that came out of that conversation: Great Gatsby, all black light party, and my personal favorite… People of Wal-Mart! Oh my.

Until 2011…

Halloween Cookies

Been mildly obsessed with Halloween cookies lately. Thought I’d post some that I found nice.

Love me some polka dots!

Perhaps some un-dead gingerbread men?

Gourmet Eyeball Cookies

 

Spider web cookies w/ a clear, isomalt center!

I’m thinking of doing a simple dipped oreo for my party. Boring, yes, but I think I might dip them in white chocolate, dyed red, of course.
