The Spread

 Don't you just love the eyeball tablecloth!

We had deviled eggs, fruit salad (apples, grapes, and strawberries), monster toes, and the strawberry ghosts.  The monster toes were little sausages wrapped in tortillas, with little bits of the ends cut off to look like toenails.  I then filled the "nails" with bbq sauce so it looked like blood.  I make these every year and the kids (and adults) love them.
 I also had the little croissants, a cheese and cracker tray, spinach dip (my mom made it and it was awesome!), a pickle and olive tray, salsa, white cheese con queso dip, french onion dip, and a variety of chips.
 I also served those ham and turkey rolls, a vegetable tray with ranch dip, and all the chocolates I made. 
My sister brought some pizza rolls (they didn't fit on the table!) and I was a little jealous when they were the first to go.  After all the hard work I put into the party food, little frozen pizza rolls were the favorite.  Go figure.  next year, I am going to save myself the trouble and just put out a platter of those, lol!

I think it ALL looks GREAT !!!!! You really put a lot of hard work into it. Give yourself a huge pat on your back for this. You are a great mom and should be really proud of all of the food you prepared. So, what about the pizza rolls, lol. People do not get enough fruits and veggies in their diet. I would of eaten all of that !! LOL

That is a AMAZING spread! We don't do a Halloween party but we do celebrate Gy Fawkes Night (Nov 5th) but I like to incorporate halloween into it, get the pumpkins out! I love some of your halloween food ideas though!

The Dream ~ Thanks! I try to do something different every year, though there are a couple of tried and true favorites, like the sausage toes.

Da Dude ~ I was just telling one of my other blog friends that it would be awesome if we all lived close enough to have one big Halloween party. I don't do the conferences, but there are certain blog friends I would love to hang out with.
