Creepy Cocktails and Freaky Food
At Halloween we never forget the sweets for the Trick or Treaters. So why do we always forget to properly plan food and drink for when the adults arrive later?
Food and drink is often forgotten in the party planning, but can be a truly great way to help your party stand out from the crowd and really emphasize your theme with food and drink. Halloween is perfect for this, and can give you and your guests hours of enjoyment with fun and playful food that will totally transform you back to being a big kid again.
Here we choose some of our favourite Creepy Cocktails and Freaky Food that are perfect for your Halloween party or event.

Freaky Halloween Food
A popular American Halloween past time, Candy Apples were solely associated with bonfire night until a few years ago.

Filled with wintery and autumnal flavours such as ginger and cinnamon, your guests will be guaranteed a taste sensation when they try this amazing Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Seeds
Another dish that fits fantastically onto the snack table, Tarantula Tacos add a much-needed bit of savoury to what is normally the sweetest holiday of the year. A slight twist on regular tacos, Tarantula Tacos are all about the decoration, design and a steady hand when you’re putting the dish together.
Halloween Flayed Man
The perfect centre piece creation, the Halloween flayed man works wonderfully on any snack table no matter what type of party you attend.
