Halloween Dinner Party
Don’t let this year stop you from having a fun, festive Halloween at home. I’ve put together everything you need for a spooky night. From Cocktails and dinner to playlists and fun favors, you’ll be all set for a fun family Halloween dinner party.
Start the evening out with these apple butter cocktails and stuffed dates.
Water is an important part of entertaining. You never want your guests to have to ask for it. I always put bottles of sparkling water and pitchers of still on the table and at the bar. Place glasses around so guests can help themselves throughout the evening.
When having company for dinner, it’s best to have different wine options to serve. Open bottles just as needed so you don’t waste any. If all of your guests prefer red, save the rose and white for another dinner party…or a Tuesday night!
Rose Isn’t just for Summer, it in fact is perfect all year round. A nice dry rose would be delicious with this dinner.
Sauvignon Blanc and cheese go hand in hand.
A light Pinot Noir works really well with tomatoes and herbs.
After dinner, munch on this spooky snack mix while watching “It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”.
For dessert, serve these pumpkin cupcakes with hot cider and coffee.
Setting the mood:
I like to put a classic movie on in the background with the volume off so as not to compete with the music. It’s a fun added detail that your guests will enjoy.
Try “Creature From The Black Lagoon” or “Bride Of Frankenstein”
Use only unscented candles on your table, you don’t want a strong smelling candle to compete with your food.
I hope this inspires you to throw a fun (safe) festive dinner with your family and friends. My final note for a successful party…be organized, be present and have fun!
