I have been decorating my home for Halloween for years. I love to entertain, but our Halloween parties have been outdoor events over the last twelve years. Last year, I decided to have a coffee and invite friends over to see my decorations, visit and enjoy refreshments. It was fun, so I decided to do it again this year. Since I'm blogging now, I decided to take pictures to share the party with you.
Come Over for a SPELL.....(that's what the invitation says)
Here is my front door-decorated and ready for guests.
I've already shared many of my Halloween decorations
so I thought I would share with you
the food I served today at my Creepy Coffee.
I came up with funny Halloween-sounding names for the refreshments I served.
I invited adults and teens to the party. I thought all the kids would love these Wizard Wands. I think everyone has heard of Harry Potter and I thought they would like these pretzels with candy coating and sprinkles. The wands were popular with the kids and the adults, too.
I served a sour cream cinnamon coffee cake but called it a Cinnamon Coffin Cake.
I made these marshmallows dipped in royal icing last year and wanted to make them again this year. I called them Eye of Newt. They are fun and easy to make. You put the marshmallow on a sucker stick (Wilton makes them) and coat with thinned royal icing. The best part is decorating the icing-coated marshmallow with sprinkles and putting the eye in place. It doesn't take much to make me happy!
I had so much fun making these Melting Monsters. They are brownies with marshmallows covered with royal icing and decorated with sprinkles and eyes. I don't think I have ever used so many sprinkles since I was a kid decorating my Christmas cookies with my friends.
I made a cheese Eye Ball that I served with crackers.
Here are some delicious toasted pecans that I called Owl Toes.
