Hauntingly Frightful Halloween Dinner
One of my friends recently told me that for me to say I like Halloween is an understatement. I had to laugh at that….When I told my friend I was the toned down version of my mother, I’m not sure he knew what to think. My mom doesn’t holds the title, “Queen of Halloween” for nothing! Halloween is the “Holy Month” for the Hansen family! As I was looking through my editorial calendar for Halloween posts, I realized I hadn’t posted a Halloween dinner yet for this year. If you’re a subscriber to Wilma Magazine, then you got to see the Witch’s Coven dinner I hosted in the October issue which was SO much fun. Last year, I had a Headless Horseman Dinner party. Today I’m sharing with you pictures from the hauntingly frightful Halloween dinner my family had a few nights ago.
Set The Mood
I love moody Halloween dinners lit by candlelight with creepy music playing in the background. The tablescape is simple but effective in setting the mood for the evening. Black matte pumpkins create the focal point for the table, and the black mesh tablecloth reinforces the dark tones. Royal Stafford skull dinner plates stare unblinkingly up at you as you take your seat. Goblets filled with a dark blood-like substance are waiting to be consumed. There’s an unusual odor of strange food cooking that makes you a little uneasy…A creeky noise startles you and your turn around but no one’s there. It was nothing, right?
