A few weeks ago, my friend Andrea and I were talking about how hard it can be to come up with food ideas for parties; all of my favorite recipes have been stolen – er, borrowed – from friends. Occasionally, we’ve shared menu ideas and recipes on our blog, but starting today, we’re going to have a weekly feature that we will call Menu Monday.
This week, I’m in full Halloween party planning mode, so I’ve been scouring the internet for cute food ideas. Of course I found some of my favorite ideas on Pinterest:
See? How fun are those ideas? I want to use *all* of them for my party, but that would be a bit over-do. So here’s what I’m thinking:
-cornbread muffins & torrilla chips
-chick-fil-a chicken nuggets for the kiddos (big and small; this is a staple at my parties!)
-the pretzel rod ghosts
-I might attempt the mummy dogs, just because I think they’re adorable, but we’ll see how the week goes!
-cupcakes, of course! The owl cupcakes go perfectly with our invitation and look easy enough.
-bowls & canisters of black and orange M&M’s and candy corn
I love the idea of carving out a pumpkin to use as an ice bucket for wine, and I want to make some kind of witches brew, but there are a ton of recipes! Anyone have a favorite to share?
So there’s our first Menu Monday post. What do you think? Want to see more of these kinds of posts? Also, we’d love to share some of your menu ideas. Or if you have a party coming up and want ideas for a themed menu, let us know.
