  1. drewb: Sounds good, and you've got your color scheme down. Personally, I'd like something raw and crunchy, so let me suggest a platter of yellow and orange sweet pepper strips, grape tomatoes, carrot sticks, and black olives, with a cold dip (even just ranch dressing).

    Check out this cute pumpkin cupcake.

    1. I would add a bowl of peeled grapes! - eyeballs -
      homemade marshmallow ghosts
      bowl of black spaghetti with squid ink sauce - worms
      pumpkin soup served in hollowed out small pumpkins or a larger cleaned out pumpkin to serve it as a tureen

      1. "Steaks with Vampires through them" (vampire sticker stuck on tongue depressors stuck through chilled tenderloin.

        "Boiled in oil" -- bagna cauda with veggies

        Graveyard cake -- dark choc cake with graves dug out and playmobil skeletons, oreo dirt, chessmen cookies for gravestones.

        1. For our Halloween get together I am considering making a tomato aspic with elbow macaroni suspended in it. There's a picture of something very much like that in this 1970's cookbook I bought at a garage sale last summer. They used plain noodles and it's just about the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. With elbows - or possibly bucatini (cut into shorter lengths) it would go right over the edge.

          1. We never did too much thematically. A good, spicy chili is usually the centerpiece. One year I did some "Day of the Dead" recipes from a Mexican cookbook, and one of them was a bread shaped like a skull. I remember that it was quite delicious, but we are definitely doing chili this year.
