Real Party: Haunted Halloween Dinner Party

Some more Halloween Real Party love coming your way… :)
Haunted Halloween Dinner
A 5-course dinner party for 20 gruesome guests
 Guests received hand-delivered invitations to this Halloween Dinner.
The invitations were attached to black roses and covered in fake spider web.
The Menu was an array of delicious, and creepy, Fall foods.
Most of the recipes were inspired by some of Martha Stewart’s Halloween food creations. (See my recent post on Halloween Recipes for some of the links!)
Menu:
First course: Tomato and Red Pepper Soup with Mozzarella Eyeballs
Second Course: Green Salad served with Roasted Red Peppers and a Spider’s Egg
Third Course: Lamb Shanks with Mashed Potato Ghosts
Fourth Course: Decaying Cheese Plate
Fifth Course: Death By Chocolate (Recipe for this deliciously sinful dessert coming soon!)
Tablescape
Each place setting held a menu (with rhinestone studded spiders crawling on them),
a charger plate covered in spider web and a wine goblet with another rhinestone
studded spider. The table itself was covered in a tattered cheese cloth,
tons of spider web, glittery spiders and pumpkins.
Decorations
When planning this party I really wanted guests to walk into a
whole different world that what my small apartment typically looks like.
In order to help create the other worldly look we purchased flat decorative
paper and black gossamer (like they use at proms).
We also purchased SEVERAL hundred fake spiders from OrientalTrading.com and used them throughout the party. Some of the spiders we spray painted silver, some we doused in black glitter, some we attached rhinestones to their backs.
We spray painted and glittered several pumpkins and scattered them throughout the party. Fake spider web finished off our spooky setting.
