Halloween Party – Guacamole Recipe

Up until now we have shared a lot of really simple recipes for the Holiday season, this one looks like it is more complicated but it really is not that bad! A lot of it revolves around referencing the image to correctly place the pieces. Definitely something to try at your next get together. Do you already have a go-to recipe for guacamole? If so then you can pull that out and star to work on that! You could also cheat and get some pre-made and only have to worry about the decorating.

You are going to want to Freeze it if you are not planning to use it right away in order to hold the shape. Sliced olives are used to create the stitching anywhere on the face you want them, as well as some hair. Green Olives are used for the eyes. Sun dried tomatoes create the bloody scars. You can be creative in the elements you use as well! Let us know what alterations you made.

What You Need:
Avocados
Tomatoes
Dash of Salt
Sun-dried Tomatoes
Sliced Olives
Green Olives
Lemon Zest
Garnish with blue corn chips.

Halloween Recipes – Mummy Hot Dogs

We were going to put Mummy Dogs as the title, but we figured on Wednesday we scared you enough with the Teeth Snack! These hot dogs can be preserved for a special dinner or another snack at your Halloween Party. All you need for this one is a pack of your preferred hot dogs, crescent roll dough, mustard, and your favorite hot dog toppings!

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Cut crescent roll dough into strips to wrap around each hot dog. Lay on a baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes. Finish them off with some mustard yellow eyes!

Halloween Recipe – Teeth????

You read that correctly, but these are not the teeth you are thinking of! Another spooky treat in addition to our Spider Sandwiches involves another classic combination of Apples and Peanut Butter. While these recipes are simple and speak for themselves, we still have an outline below for instructions and ingredients.

Ingredients:
Peanut Butter (Your choice of smooth or crunchy)
Apples (preferably red in color)
Mini Marshmallows
Knife and Apple Slicer

Instructions:

  1. Use your Apple Slicer to cut evenly into your apples. Red looks the best for lips, but you can also use Green and make witch lips too!
  2. Spread one side of each with peanut butter. Select one side and start to line up your mini marshmallows. Press into the peanut butter to get a better hold.
  3. Top your teeth with the top “lip”, peanut butter side facing down onto your “teeth”. Place onto a spooky tray and serve! Delicious and fairly healthy compared to the trick or treaters’ candy haul!

Halloween Recipe – PB&J Spiders

Here is a Spooky take on a classic lunch treat! Not only can these be used at a Halloween Part, but a cute lunch time surprise for school during October. While some of the instructions seem self explanatory, we just wanted to show how quick and easy it was to make!

Ingredients:
Bread
Peanut Butter
Jelly
Round Cookie Cutter or Knife
Pretzel Sticks
Mini Chocolate Chips

Instructions:

  1. Use cookie cutter on bread slices to get the top and bottom of your spider body. (Or you can free hand with a knife.)
  2. Add peanut butter to one, and jelly to the other. We found it best to add the pretzel stick spider legs now instead of sticking them in later on. Place the top down to secure the legs.
  3. Now all that is left is placing two chocolate chips on top as the eyes! Simple, Easy, Delicious!

Masquerade Party – Outdoor Decor


Party Planners have numerous ideas for how to decorate the interior of your home for a party, but what about the exterior? What better way for guests to make an entrance, than to have your decked out for the event they are attending! We love the idea of a frame around the door with Tulle and the large masks in the corner. Now, masks that size may need to be ordered online, but you can find smaller ones at your local Halloween Shop or Party Store.

Take your theme colors and wrap them around the door frame for a stunning entry way. Little bits can be added along the sides, kind of like a theater curtain being held to the side with some rope. If you have done any outdoor decorations for Halloween, a themed party, or just because we would love to see and hear about it!

If you are looking for a location for your next party or get together, the B&B Country Garden Inn offers different party packages! Just give us a call today to look into dates and start helping you plan.

Masquerade Glasses

A cute, simple craft to add to your Masquerade party is some themed wine glasses! Wine glasses can be picked up at your local Dollar Store, so the cost would be based on how ever many you needed.

Materials:
Wine Glass
Glitter
Cardstock
Feather
Super Glue, Elmer’s Glue
Modge Podge or Sealant Spray
Paint Brushes

Instructions:

  1. Draw out different mask designs onto a piece of cardstock and cut them out. Make sure you are making them to fit around the size of the glass. Brush glue onto the masks to add the glitter and let it dry, then add a spot of glue on the back for the feather and allow time to dry.
  2. Use the brush again to coat anywhere on the wine glass you want glitter and sprinkle it on top. Move the wine glass around and even let it dry upside down to release any loose pieces.
  3. Super Glue will be needed to attach the cardstock mask to the wine glass, Elmer’s Glue will not stay on the glass. Hold the piece in place until it dries.
  4. Cover the mask and the areas with glitter with a sealing spray or paint with modge podge to ensure that it will hold in place. Perfect to add as a decoration or toasting!

 

Masquerade Party

While there are endless party ideas through out the year, most of them you would think of activities for children. We are also guilty of posting a lot of ideas that revolve around kids or the family unit. October is a wonderful time for Halloween themed parties, as well as Masquerades! You can find a wonderful selection of masks at your local costume shop, or make your own for the event. There is a lot you can do with the themed, specific colors or anything goes. This event is a great for you and your friends, co-workers, etc. The fancy dresses are not needed, everyone can come in costumes with matching masks, or have on their Sunday best, even jeans and t-shirt. Decorate with feathers, beads, other masks around the room, and food that matches the chosen color theme you have gone with.
