Have a Super Spooky Halloween! October 30 2014
Halloween is just around the corner and if you are anything like us at SuperEleven.co.uk, you will be getting ready to throw the most brilliantly horrifying party ever to have existed. We have put together a guide for putting on a spooktacular party your guests will never forget!
Halloween is all about the treats, but this doesn’t mean you have to be building up the calorie bank. Here are some of our favourite snacks that will be a hit with your guests!
Terrifying Chips and Dips:
Cut the top of a pepper off and carve a pumpkin face into it. Scoop out the insides and fill it with hummus. Place it next to some baked tortilla chips and enjoy!
Mummified Hot dogs:
Roll some pastry out and cut it into to long, thin strips. Wrap the pastry around the hot dogs leaving a gap roughly ¼ of the way down. Put in the oven on 180C for 15-20 minutes. Poke two holes in the gap between the pastry for eyes!
Witches Bellini brew:
This delicious twist on the classic Bellini is a great way to kick-start your party (use lemonade instead of Prosecco for a child friendly punch!) Blend 2 cups of raspberries in a food processor and pour into a large bowl (or a plastic witches cauldron if you can get one!) Add 4 cups of red grapefruit juice and 2 bottles of Proscecco!
Vampire friendly Blood Orange shots:
Buy plastic test tube shot glasses from your local supermarket. Squeeze the juice from 8 large Blood-Oranges. Pour a little bit of a spirit of your choice (not essential!) in to the tubes and top with the blood orange juice! Disgusting and yet so delicious!
Petrifying pumpkins: Halloween parties can be expensive, so to save money why not get all of your guests to bring a pumpkin they have carved themselves and then have a prize for the spookiest one! Not only does it save you money on decorations but it’s also great fun! Besides, who doesn’t love a good competition?!
Cut the top of your pumpkin off and scoop out the insides. Fill it with ice for the perfect Halloween wine chiller!
Mix red food colouring with water and pour it into different sized glass bowls and vases. Light some candles and float them on top of the water for an eerie atmosphere.
Eight legged haven:
You can’t have a Halloween party without these classic little creepers! Place plastic spider onto tables and the floor and hang plastic bats from the ceiling. Guaranteed to make your guests jump regardless of their age!
