Hosting a Halloween dinner party can be lots of fun if all the ingredients, edible and otherwise are tasty. The food menu can be variations of the standards, but with shocking seasonal touches.
For example, steak or roast beef is labeled mortuary meat. Hot dogs can be be designed with olive pimentos s as eyes and fresh red pepper sticks as legs, and called spooky sausages or dastardly dacshhunds. Serve whole chickens or turkeys, and call them baked buzzard.
French fries are guillotined potatoes and corn on the cob or creamed corn are fresh-pulled victim teeth. Catsup is bloody stuff, and make up your own name for mustard. Of course, among the drinks you’ll serve are Bloody Marys.
Before the eating starts for your spooky Halloween dinner party, you may require that everyone comes in costumes. They could include the traditional spooky ones of witch, Dracula, Frankenstein, ghosts, zombies, Freddie and others.
However, if your guests are willing, another theme would be to challenge them to come to dinner with spooked-up versions of celebrities from showbiz and politics. One idea about current happenings is the Tea Party. The costume could be a George Washington uniform with dozens of tea bags hanging from the rim of his tricorner hat. He can be spooked up by adding fake marijuana stashes among the tea bags.
Of course, at least one guest, male or female, will want to show up as Lady Gaga. Her costumes are so weird to begin with, it could be difficult to make her any more spooky. One version would be to make most of her costume and jewelry in black, topped off by an enormous and feathered witch hat. From under the hat, an enormous frazzled white wig will burst. To complete the outfit, she’ll carry a broom with an equally bizarre stuffed black cat on it.
A couple could attend your Halloween dinner party dressed as twin showbiz jailbirds. There are plenty to imitate, but the latest are Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. All they’ll need are exaggerated black-and-white-striped prison uniforms with matching hats, plus long blonde wigs and bimbo make-up.
To emphasize your dinnertime spookiness, add special noise and music sound effects throughout dinner. If you can enlist costumed family members to act out ghostly and grizzly interruptions.
Spooky Halloween dinner party ideas can be as hilarious funny and exciting as you choose to make them. With a bit of originality and evil thoughts, you can make your affair the hit of the season.
