What a way to serve a spread of meats! Image courtesy of Kim Atkinson Fiorini.
Either way, I’m in complete awe on this one! I have to say this is THE BEST idea I have seen for serving meats on a table for Halloween or as in a zombie party. I can really see this work for a zombie wedding too! Thanks Ms. Fiorini for your creativity!

Confessions of a Party Planner
I must confess: it is a highlight for me to get an emotional response from guests before they even taste a morsel at my Halloween parties. But beyond their visual appeal (or gruesome effect), it has to be undoubtedly tasty.
Luckily, it usually only takes a few brave souls to initiate the tasting of horrifying foods and giving them the thumbs up. Word-of-mouth is very powerful and thanks to those who initiated the food fest, a chain-reaction will occur of good conversations, laughs, and most importantly, everyone else digging in.
Below you’ll find awe-inspiring Halloween recipes that have been tested by my own party attendees or are on my “must try” list from my peer’s tried and true recipes. Continue reading →
If you’re planning on making some new gruesome treats for Halloween, it’s better to practice your skills a few months ahead before the big party.
When the summertime heat rises, there’s nothing more refreshing than Jell-O! Hardly the Jell-O mold your grandma has made, the basic recipe originally came from The Pumpkin Nook, where you can find several recipes of gruesome delight. I tweaked the brain recipe by adding a few ingredients and made it my own.
One brain mold
A large platter (to accommodate brain with blood drippings)
Non-stick cooking spray
7 small boxes of peach gelatin
Green food coloring
1 can skim evaporated milk, chilled
3 ½ cups water
One of the following: A can of cherry pie filling or 1 bag of frozen strawberries or frozen raspberries.
3 bowls: one for mold stabilization in the refrigerator, one for mixing and one for water dipping.
