I hosted a Halloween party on Saturday and it was a mash, it was a graveyard smash.
I made a bunch of spooky food. Christina mixed up some Zombie Punch. A bunch of friends dressed up in fabulous costumes--Crazy Cat Lady, Cloudy Sky, Alexander the Great, Boo from Monsters Inc., a Once-ler with the Lorax, and two cute witches. I was properly zombified by the end of the evening...and well into the next day, too. But it was worth it.
Pumpkin Barf aka guacamole was a big hit. I got the idea from this pin. It was a little challenging carving the face, but I think it turned out pretty good.
Spicy Popcorn. Not scary, per se, but super tasty. I used this recipe as a jumping off point for my spice mixture.
Our friend Kevin brought a killer cheese spread.
Bite-Sized Ghosts. Strawberries dipped in vanilla white chocolate with dark chocolate faces.
Trick or Treat Cupcakes.

...with a spooky trick inside! (Almost) blood red berry filling.
Creepy crawly centerpiece.
