Halloween Themed Party Food

Are you currently in the midst of planning a Halloween night extravaganza at your place? If you want to host the most thrillingly spooky and spot-on Halloween party your guests have ever attended, you may want to up the ante by curating a special selection of themed party food. Some Halloween dishes, such as pumpkin pie, are already an integral part of the fall season, while others, such as pumpkin shaped pizza, only require a few fun tweaks to already-familiar foods to achieve. With a little planning and elbow grease, you could easily assemble a delicious Halloween menu that’s sure to delight your guests.

How to Plan a Halloween Themed Party

Before you can start ordering food and setting out your pumpkin shaped pizza, you may need to take a few steps to ensure that your Halloween party goes off without a hitch. Just as is the case with any other themed party, the key to throwing a truly unforgettable Halloween party is careful planning. Although serving great food is one important component, you may also need to spend some time decorating and more. Prior to the big day, make sure you:

  • Send out spooky-looking invitations ahead of time
  • Plan out a Halloween-inspired menu to satisfy guests’ hunger
  • Purchase Halloween decorations to transform the vibe in your home
  • Set up a Halloween-inspired playlist for the party
  • Consider asking guests to come in their costumes

Although it may be tempting to focus on fun sides or snacks for your party, if you’re hosting a dinner party or an event that may last several hours, it could be a good idea to serve some main dishes. By serving up some hearty mains, you can help satisfy guests’ hunger while still setting the tone for a fun fall party. Some fun recipe ideas you could whip up include:

  • Heart beef chili with seasonal pumpkin chunks
  • Puréed squash soup
  • “Mummified”-looking pigs in a blanket
  • Fresh-cut seasonal vegetable platter
  • Savory chicken pot pie
  • Loaded shepherd’s pie

Don’t Forget the Sides, Desserts & Drinks

Even if you’ve already locked in the best pizza deals for your dinner party, you may still need to provide a few sides to keep guests satisfied. This Halloween, consider serving some:

  • Deviled eggs
  • Sweet potato with marshmallows
  • Candy corn flavored popcorn
  • Dill pickle flavored potato chips
  • Make-your-own s’mores

There’s nothing quite like topping off a delicious meal with something sweet, so be sure to include some Halloween desserts on your menu, too. You can get as creative as you want with dessert decorations to really impress your guests. Tried-and-true fall favorites include:

  • Caramel apples
  • Pumpkin spice donuts
  • Pumpkin pie
  • Pumpkin cake roll
  • Red velvet cupcakes
  • Apple cobbler

Last but not least, make sure your guests stay hydrated all night long by providing a variety of Halloween-inspired seasonal beverages. Some classic fall drinks that you might want to offer include:

  • Spiced apple cider
  • Hot chocolate
  • Cinnamon tea
  • Warm milk with honey
  • Seasonal spiced punch

Hosting a Halloween-themed party provides a great opportunity to go all out and offer guests some special seasonal dishes. If you’ve got a spooky Halloween bash coming up, consider adding some or all of these tasty treats to your menu.
