If you are in need of some ideas on how to decorate Halloween food and tables, here are some examples of our award winning Halloween food and decorating contests from years back:
We made a Jell-o “brain” and put candy eyeballs on cupcakes.
We made spaghetti, put candy eyeballs and used a hot dog cut in half lengthwise for a tongue.
We took some wire to string cheese cubes, salami, beef jerky and tomato. We used this to decorate a witch hat. It was alot of work to string all that food. But it was also alot of fun creating with friends.
We took some mini saugsages, wrapped them in tortilla “bandages” and dipped them in ketchup to resemble bloody fingers. We made more fingers using string cheese. We scored the cheese to create knuckles and then put the skin of a pepper for a fingernail.
We made cupcakes and to decorate them to look like a witch fell through it, we used a peppermint patty, a hersey’s kiss and some fondant for the witch’s hat. For the witch’s legs, we used a chocolate covered pretzel stick and more fondant for feet and stripes on her stockings.
For a cornucopia theme, we used tablecloths in fall colors, fake fall leaves, baskets, and pumpkins to decorate our table.
For a darker theme, use black cloth, skulls, lights, candlesticks and necklaces to decorate the table.
