Our Spooky Dinner

I'm a little late at posting this, but at least it's before Halloween, right?? We have had our traditional spooky dinner for about 6 years now (maybe longer). We have done it by ourselves but have found that it's more fun to invite people! This year we invited some friends (as opposed to family like we have in the past). It's always so much fun that I want to do another one!! LOL

We have bloody worms and eyeballs for our meal (spaghetti and meatballs). Our friends brought large mummy fingers...but when we cut it up, it just looked like moldy bread...even better!! They also brought a salad topped with olives (black) and carrots (orange)...very festive. We had slime to drink (lemonade) and we only have candles lit. I have Halloween music playing in the background and we use Halloween plates and cups and napkins. Something else that we do is make up place cards. We look up spooky words and such and match them to our names. We have Dangerous Daddy, Monster Mommy, Evil Evan, Terrifying Tyler, Haunted Heidi, Lifeless Lindsey and Daunting Derek. We also do this for our guests. We have quite a collection of names!!!

We really look forward to this night every year. Thanks to the Browns for joining us this year!!!!

Love the menu. What a great idea. Keep it going It will be something that your little ones will remember for a long time. It might be something that they do with their own family some day. Nice tradition to keep going with.
