A little info about our Gourmet Group: We are 4 couples who enjoy cooking, entertaining, and most of all, each other’s company.
We take turns hosting in our homes. The hosts decide on the menu (theme) from appetizers to dessert for the evening. The hosts cook most of the meal, but give at least one course (along with all the recipes) to the other couples to prepare. We love trying new recipes and ideas. So most of the time the recipes are ones we haven’t cooked before, but they don’t have to be.
–Fall and Halloween are just around the corner…
Another couple in our Gourmet Group hosted our group for a Halloween dinner party last October. If you’re thinking about having a Halloween dinner party or just having friends over for dinner while the kids go trick-or-treating, here are some inspiring ideas for your spooky gathering.
Our hosts’ Halloween tablescape was spook-ta-cular
A light-up skeleton gave us a ghoulish greeting as we entered their dining room…
A variety of colorful pumpkins, dripping candles, cobwebs, and eerie purple lights set the mood…
Purple skull and crossbones wine glasses and a take-home taffy apple at each place setting
R.I.P. place cards showed each of us our final resting place…
EAT, DRINK, & BE SCARY: COCKTAILS & APPETIZERS
The kitchen too was tricked out with fall/Halloween décor…
Spiced Nuts & other appetizing treats
Creepy skeletal dog…
Touches on the fireplace mantel and kitchen counters …
Savory Monkey Bread
DINNER IS SERVED
Halloween themed plates and bowls for dinner…
This was an Alton Brown Recipe – great recipe – the soup was not only flavorful, but had only 4 ounces of heavy cream in it
Braised Brisket accompanied by side dishes of Spiced Carrots and Mashed Potatoes with Caramelized Onions
The brisket was so tasty – tender and “fall off the bone” type…
Double Layer Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecake
A bewitching dessert!
~ A hauntingly good evening ~
Hi! this Halloween table decor is fantastic, we would like to contact you via email in order to ask for approval to reuse it on our socials, after editing it to add one of our bottles of wine for the Halloween season. you can contact us at email@example.com. Thank you so much. Ann
I am so sorry but somehow your message was missed, and now untimely. If you would still like to use it for a (hopefully) “more-social Halloween” this year, you have my approval.
