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.
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.
"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.
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).
