Halloween Glam Party -Budget Revealed #partybudgeting



Pumpkin cheese and veggie plate for Halloween Party www.PartiesonaPenny.com (Halloween Appetizers For Party)

Halloween is my favorite holiday because it is THE holiday where you can go wild with creativity with costumes, decorations and food! Here is my version of a Halloween Purple and Black Glam Party with a budget of about $70. Halloween Themed Appetizers and Desserts: Pumpkin Cheese Plate- I got this inspiration from Pinterest where the pumpkin is shaped purely by vegetables. I revised it a little by adding squares of cheddar and jack cheese. "Devil"ed Eggs- Deviled eggs are one of my favorite appetizers. They are so simple, yet so delicious. To make these Halloween themed, I cut up a small red bell pepper into tiny triangles as devil horns. 5 Layer Spider Webb Dip- A traditional 5 layer dip made with refried beans, sour cream, salsa, shredded cheddar cheese and mashed avocados. Made this with a Halloween twist by pipping sour cream into a spider web and adding a fake plastic spider. Serve the dip cold or hot (I prefer cold) with blue corn tortilla chips. I added plastic sticky eyes to the chip bowl for added spookiness. Pizza Mummies- Made from Bagel Bites and sliced black olives. Monster Strawberries- Chocolate dipped strawberries using lavender colored candy melts with pipped chocolate monster faces. Worms in Chocolate Mud- This dessert definitely tastes better than it looks. The chocolate mud is made from rich chocolate pudding and crumbled Oreos then topped with gummy worms. Ghostly Cupcakes - I cheated on this dessert by making the chocolate cupcakes from store bought mix, but made the cream cheese frosting from scratch using a recipe from MarthaStewart.com VIEW RECIPE, Make sure to pipe a small mound of the frosting in the center of the cupcake then pipe the frosting around the mound to form a ghost. Use mini chocolate chips to form the eyes. I spent a total of $40 on all the ingredients for the appetizers and desserts. The Decor: Banner and Backdrop- Bunting banner created from colored construction paper I had in my stock of paper goods. I didn't have time to cut out individual letters so I used glue and loose purple glitter for lettering. The backdrop is made from white cotton spider webbing and plastic spiders. Cost Breakdown - Glitter $2.75 - Spider Webbing and Spiders $4 Table Decor- Added a touch of color to the table by using my purple scarf as a table runner. Hobby Lobby was having a great 40% off sale on all Halloween decorations which helped me bring down the cost of the table accent pieces to less than $25 Cost Breakdown - Purple and gold pumpkins $12 - Metal purple glitter spiders $7/pair - Colored plastic vampire teeth for dish place cards $3
