Halloween is not far off...

Ok, don't be mad at me, but Halloween is really not that far off.  Party planners know that they must start now to compile their ideas to host an unforgettable shindig for Halloween!

So here are just a few photos of what we did last year at my house:
After the little kids went trick or treating, they came in for dinner.  Friends brought a dish to pass and I had the table set up with plates, napkins, silverware, veggies and dip, cupcakes and few other spooky samplings...

This was so easy to make and turned out great!  Just mix onion soup mix with cream cheese.  Form head, Cut strips of Swiss Cheese and layer over head.  Add olives for eyes and slivered almonds for teeth.  I toasted pita triangles with oregano to serve with. Viola!

Made the bats from Wilton candy molds and let the frosting melt sloppily over the cupcakes.

This skeleton was repainted since it had gotten quite marked up over the years. Still lights up though!
