Halloween Dinner

My sisters-in-law and I decided to get together for a fun dinner the night before Halloween. Save these ideas away for next year people! We had a blast!


They are breadsticks shaped like fingers with pumpkin seed fingernails. They are superb dipped in blood (spaghetti sauce).

Next, we had PIZZA SNAKES:

They are basically just calzones painted with a mixture of food coloring and egg white. But the best part was cutting them open and seeing all the sauce and cheese oozing out. Bwah ha ha.

We also dined on MELON BRAIN:

Detailed instructions can be found on, but basically I peeled a personal-sized watermelon and carved the grooves into it. I had been wanting to try this one for a long time and it actually worked and looked just as good as the picture!

And here are some of the goodies all laid out.

We finished the night off with a graveyard buffet... chocolate pudding, Oreo "dirt", gummy worms and graham cracker tombstones. YUM!

I think we're going to make this spooky dinner a tradition. It was so much fun!


  1. Wow! This puts our Halloween dinner to shame. I love that melon idea.

  2. Oh, that is awesome! Those witches fingers look REALLY good. Yup, we'll save that one for next year....or maybe do a nightmare before Christmas theme.

  3. That is so creepy, yet cool! What fun ideas :)

  4. We had snakes for dinner too! Along with bugs, wormy punch, and spiderweb brownies. I just love Halloween.

  5. Looks so yummy! I love those witches fingers!

  6. Wow! I have been looking at your blog a lot lately and LOVE it! You have really inspired me and make me want to do all this stuff even though I am not crafty AT ALL. You are extremely talented and thanks for sharing your ideas!

  7. I love your swaddling how to diagram! It would be perfect to include with a swaddling blanket for baby gifts. I would be happy to buy some diagrams to use. Would you email me to let me know?

  8. Awesome Halloween dinner ideas in here. I was browsing and found your blog, and was so happy you’ve got interesting Halloween Recipes and treats! Thanks for sharing and I do hope I could pin some nice photos on my Pinterest boards. Good day!
