Happy Halloween everybody! Halloween is my favorite holiday next to Christmas of course. Growing up I loved loved loved dressing up and running around the neighborhood for hours trying to collect as much candy as possible in my big pillowcase. Even as a teenager I really enjoyed going to the haunted houses and watching scary movies and still of course dressing up. Well here I am in my late 20's and still thoroughly enjoy getting candy, dressing up, decorating, and eating fun food.
I thought today I would share with you some fun ideas to jazz up your Halloween, whether you are celebrating at home or with friends or going out!
Some of these ideas my sister and I came up with a few years ago at a really fun family get together and some I have seen online and thought looked so fun and cute for a day of spooky eating! Enjoy!!
This first idea was super fun and looked totally awesome. We called it "Monster punch". You take your favorite clear colored drink and add green food coloring (or if you are a fan of lime or green apple koolaid use those). The glasses were dipped in corn syrup that had been colored with red food coloring.

Food.com. Its a mixture of gelatin and whipping cream and you use STRAWS to make them look so real. To make them even more authentic when on display pile them on top of some finely crushed up oreos to make it look like dirt!

Ha I love these little ghosts. Just take a strawberry, dip it in white chocolate, pipe on a cute face and make the greens stand up for scared hair lol
I had a parent bring something similar to these little orange pumpkins to our Preschool on Halloween for snack day and thought they were adorable. Simply cut out a face on your orange, scoop out the inside, and fill with a fruit salad!
Well that's probably enough ideas for this year! What are you favorite Halloween inspired foods to serve up? I would love to hear how you like to celebrate your holiday and if you do anything amazing with food I would love for you to share! Happy Halloween all!
