Party Prep: Halloween Menus

Every year Halloween is my party to throw.
I love to set different themes and really go all out for the event.
This means I spend a ton of time and thought working out the details of invitations, decor and menu.
And, while I love working out all of those details…
I really enjoy putting together a creepy, yet satisfying menu.
Three years ago
we had a “Haunted Halloween Dinner Party”
and served a five course meal.
The Haunted Dinner Party Menu:
First Course: Tomato and Red Pepper Soup with Mozzarella Eyeballs
Second Course: Green Salad with roasted garlic and peppers served with spider eggs
Third Course: Lamb Shanks with Mashed Potato Ghosts
Fifth Course: Death by Chocolate
Two years ago
  we had a “Bewitching Ball” and served signature drinks along with creepy appetizers.
I also had a small dessert and candy table so guests could take home some treats.
The Savory Appetizer Menu Included:
Bat Wings
A Creepy Crudite Plate
Kidney Stones
The treats included:
Candied Apples
Cookie Monster’s Cookies
and various store bought candies
Last year
we went a different direction and enjoyed a “Mad Tea Party.”
We went with Alice in Wonderland inspired or English inspired dishes.
The Mad Tea Party Menu included:
Appetizers of various tea sandwiches, biscotti and cake pops
Course One: Radiccio Flower Salad with White Rarebit
Course Two: The Duchess’ Pepper Soup
Course Three: Much of a Muchness Shepherd’s Pie
Course Four: The Queen’s Tarts
This year
we are having a Costumes and Cocktail’s Party
and I am hard at work on the menu! 
We will be going with a food table of “un”savory appetizers and a treat table that guests can peruse throughout the night and then take treats home at the end of the evening.

 There will be a couple of repeat menu items since they were such a hit at previous parties including:
Rest in Peas
Decaying Cheese Platter
and the Brain Cupcakes
What do you like to make for Halloween? 

Or what was the coolest Halloween menu you’ve seen yet?
