Halloween Dinner Party

Last night, Matt and I hosted our very first themed dinner party: Halloween! We ate so much food it was crazy, but everything was so delicious, it was hard to stop! Check out the below post to see what the menu was and where I purchased some of the decorations.
Where I purchased decorations:
  • Tableware and plastic table cloths from Target. If you order online, you get free shipping and they had decorations like 20% off!
  • Blood backdrop: Target
  • Candlesticks: HomeGoods
  • Bowls, cauldrons, a potion drink holder: King Soopers, they had a sale on their Halloween decor.


The menu was also delicious. I kept changing my mind for what I wanted, and prepared different menus throughout the week, but I think it turned out pretty good:
  • Bruschetta 
    • Chopped tomatoes, avocado, basil on toasted french bread with a balsamic glaze drizzle on top.
  • Brie and pepper jelly roll 
    • Brie cheese round with homemade raspberry pepper jelly on top, wrapped in dough and baked at 375 for 20 minutes.
  • Chips and homemade salsas
  • Olives, almonds, and antipasto plate from Whole Foods
  • Orange Fennel Salad
    • Orange, avocado, thinly sliced fennel, and shallots with a champagne vinaigrette (champagne vinegar, olive oil, and honey)
  • Traditional lasagna
  • Pumpkin lasagna 
  • Cupcakes and Frankenstein cake from Whole Foods

  1. Hey your Halloween party sounds quite crazy and fun. I am also planning a dinner party for my loved ones. Going to book one of local San Francisco event venues for it. Will be hiring catering service too for delicious food arrangements. Really want to arrange an outstanding party.
