spooky story party: food

Just like with our decorations we showed you yesterday, we decided to try and keep things simple when it came to food and drinks at this spooky story party.  The party was held in the late afternoon so we had a few savory and a few sweet snacks.

For savory we had asparagus and prosciutto squares, chili dip, and turkey wraps.  For sweet snacks we had pumpkin bread, candy corn cookies, and everyone’s favorite twix trifles.

The recipe for twix trifles came from Gimme Some Oven.  We loved this new and more sophisticated take on an old favorite.  That was how we wanted this party to feel a more grown up version of those scare yourself silly get-togethers that  took place after trick or treating.  The recipe was simple and sinfully delicious.

We made food labels using printable orange stickers and backing them on our shimmer paper that we used on our invitations.  We kept our drinks secret by covering up most of the labels, but frequent guests to our house knew what is their favorite drink.

And of course no Halloween party is complete without candy corn!
