6 Fabulous Halloween Tips and Tricks!

The anticipation grows as we inch closer to this exciting day of the year called Halloween! This time around we thought we would share some of our top “Tips and Tricks” for the occasion. Candy Apples! Indulge your guests with mini caramel apples. To complete the look, add a willow stick to each apple. Cute and clever touch, huh? Wicked Food! Do some research and pick a theme with a fun time period such as the 1920’s or 1950’s! Then play up food that was most popular during that time and make it ghoulishly fabulous. Add eyeballs and fingers to the entrees to spice things up. Adults Can Be Kids Too! Instead of lemonade, serve some “Ghoulade” for a howling good time. Take cranberry juice, orange juice, vodka, and mix […]

Skulltastic!

I am sitting here at my desk eating what seems to be a demented skull. Good news: it’s a cookie! Not only are these cookies ADORABLE, they are absolutely DELISH! So delish that I hopped right online to blog about them. Whimzkulls was kind enough to send over a few samples of their hand “skullpted” skull cookies. They are going to be perfect for our Halloween and horror themed parties! All of the cookies are based on the same design but vary slightly since they are hand sculpted. This allows each cookie to have its own personality! The cookies are delectable shortbread with a complementary glaze and edible decorations. You can get them in three different styles: original skull cookie, bag of small skull cookies, and a green ‘n gold […]
