Who doesn’t love a good dinner party? Especially when it’s combined with Halloween?
Every year I have a small Halloween dinner party, and I’m thankful to keep the tradition going for a third year despite Covid and living between cities.
I thought about making this year’s party 2020-themed given the horror/thriller/sci-fi show this year has been, but it’s too soon. Maybe next year. Instead, I stayed with the classic Halloween theme with a splash of American patriotism.
Big thanks to my boyfriend for helping make it possible! After the ice storm, he was chopping broken tree branches, saw the axe in the wood and thought I might like it as decor. He was right! And, of course, we also had to use his man target, the Sons of Liberty stripes, and rifles.
Here are more details on what we served in case you’re looking for some inspiration for your next dinner party. Who says you need to wait until next year to have a spooky, American-themed tablescape?
Tuscan Tortellini Chicken soup served in a roasted pumpkin.
It was so creamy and delicious.
Bat-shaped sugar cookies with royal icing 🦇 along with mini candies such as almond joys, peanut butter cups, and Kit Kat’s.🍫
White cupcakes filled with Nutella buttercream and topped with hand-crafted buttercream roses.
