{Dinner For Four} Halloween 08

We had a quieter Halloween Night this year, having a newborn on our hands and all and decided to make it an easy holiday by inviting just one other couple over who have a darling little 5- monther. As we ate, we rocked our babies together, soothed the babes, played with the babies, traded babies for a minute, and talked all about life with a newborn. It ended up being a perfect night and here's a look at the food we served. It was easy to throw together, fun, and GROSS!!! Ewww!!!
Used cookie cutters to make Halloween-shaped tortilla chips as a garnish for all the dips we had. We had shredded BBQ chicken with melted provolone cheese on top of french baguettes.
These are SUPPOSED to be monster mouths with the candy corn as teeth. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out as cool as I'd thought. Na ya.

Blood Clot Brew!! Thank you, Emily Parry for the idea behind this! My brew was a mixture of cranberry and orange juice with some ginger ale mixed in. To top it off, I threw frozen raspberries inside for the "blood clots"...

Each glass had a tiny spider on its rim. Don't fret- wasn't real.

You get the idea...
