Whether you like it or not, Halloween is coming in a few weeks. If you have a Halloween party to organise, here are some brilliant catering ideas for an amazing Halloween party. Halloween is one of the most anticipated annual events worldwide, so making your Halloween party perfect can be a bit of a nerve-wracking task. Don’t fret, for there are tons of party ideas that are so good it can be haunting. And here are few of those best ideas.

Setting the Place Up

Good thing about Halloween parties is that it doesn’t need a lot of complicated decors just put a good setup. Like Christmas, decors will be readily available in supermarkets as soon as the season starts. Basic Halloween decors include carved jack-o-lanterns, gourds, candles and fake cobwebs among others.

Tip: When setting up your place for the Halloween party, make sure that everything is colour-coordinated. Usually the colours associated with Halloween are black, orange, white, red and sometimes purple. Stick to these colours to make the setting more organised and pleasing to the eyes

Brilliant Decor Idea: Heads will roll with this head in a jar DIY Halloween decor. It looks so realistic that everyone will just lose their heads. Here’s a video on how to do this gore-y yet brilliant Halloween decor.

Food and Drinks

The food and drinks that you will serve on your Halloween Party mostly depend on what type of party you will be having and who will attend. If you’re party will be pretty much like a frat house on a Tuesday and will be attended by  your college mates then you don’t really have to think much about food as long as chips and alcoholic drinks are flowing.

If you’re planning for a more formal Halloween party, however, then you need to have it planned at least a week prior. Whether your party includes kids or mostly adults, it would be beneficial for you to get a caterer to handle your catering woes. If you do, don’t forget to discuss some brilliant catering ideas you have in mind. Here are some ideas we thought are “bloody” fine:

Witch Fingers – Who would’ve thought that these finger-shaped cookies can be a healthy treat? These Witch Finger cookies are made with whole grains and red jam for the blood instead of artificial food colouring. It may put some of your guests off but that’s the point of it.

Rotten Deviled Eggs – These eggs put the ‘devil’ in ‘deviled’. This visually not-so appetizing yet fancy-sounding appetizer is easy to prepare and can be enjoyed by both kids and adults.

Feet Loaf – This entree should not be consumed by people who have this ridiculous fear of feet (also known as podophobia). But really, this is simply a meatloaf shaped into a pair of ugly feet for more gross but in a cool way effect.

Black Caramel Apples – This classic Halloween candy just went to a whole, new, darker level. These apples may look like something that a witch uses to poison naive runaway princesses, but they’re just as good as the original caramel apple recipe. Perfect for kids and kids-at-heart.

Fog Drinks – Let’s not forget to make our drinks suitable for the Halloween festivities as well. You can make any juice you like but you can incorporate some eerie touch to it – like fog (with the use of some dry ice – careful with using this though) to make it more spook-tacular like this drink.

These are just some of the brilliant catering ideas for the Halloween. If you want to have your party catered by a team of professional and skilled chefs and event organisers in Limerick, give The Brew Bros a go!
