spooky spread

For todays party, I will make normal food and give it scary names presented the best I can with my Halloween party ware.  I don't really want to mold fondant or crescent rolls or use tons of food coloring.  It is a lot of work and quite frankly, I really don't want to eat to much processed crap.  So I try to be somewhat healthy.  I did however need something to tell the guest what they are eating.  Last year I used these little cauldrons with Halloween picks.  I seem to have lost some along the way and needed to make some more.
So here is the idea I came up with - it came to me Wednesday night in the wee hours of the morning.  I went to the dollar store and got some skeleton garland.  I then repositioned them - sometimes breaking their little limbs and glueing them back together with a glue gun. I also cut the cardboard they were attached to into squares and affixed them to make a stand.  Then I printed the names of my  offerings on cardstock and glued the cards in their hands.  I think they are cute and were super cheap to make and hopefully can be used again.  Sorry if this is your idea and I copied it without giving you credit.  I honestly can't remember if I have seen it before.



  1. Ha - these guys are so cute! Tell us about the party and post some pics, please!

  2. 10 years ago I went to a Halloween party to a chef's house, where they had named everything in the buffet what it was, except one thing; Monkey brains. No-one touched it all night :)

    1. I still don't know what it actually was :)

    2. funny - I wonder what it might have been.
