Hoot Hoot! We have a “Hoot of a Halloween Party” to share with you this fabulous Monday morning! Sent in by the talented Do Driver of Piggy Bank Parties, this party is oh so precious. Perfect for a Halloween Movie Night (sleepover!), backyard neighborhood party, or really any type of Halloween gathering!
The menu included easy-to-fix foods that were kid-friendly, warm and relatively healthy to make sure lil’ bellies were full before heading out into the night. The menu included: Full Moon Sandwiches, ChickenHoot-tle Soup, Apple Tree-ts, Wise Crackers & Cheese, Lil’ Owl Cupcakes, Hoot-sie Roll Branches and Harvest Moon Juice. Sandwich bread and cheese were cut with round cookie cutters to create fun shaped food. Even apples are special when displayed in cupcake wrappers.
It’s not always easy to incorporate warming dishes onto a buffet table but there are times it is necessary. The soup was kept warm in a Crockpot so I turned it around–mine has lots of buttons on the front–and attached Lil’ Hoots Halloween Paper to the back to match the décor perfectly. I also used the paper to line serving trays and make lids for the drinking jars.
Even though the lil’ guests are about to venture off to gather sweet treats, I couldn’t resist having one sweet thing on the table. I made a simplified version of owl cupcakes photos I found while searching the internet. I also added Hoot-sie Roll Branches and Lil’ Hoots Cake Stakes to some of the cupcakes. I was inspired to create the branches after learning a trick from Kim of The Celebration Shoppe. Microwave Tootsie Rolls or Starbursts for 8 seconds and you can mold them into fun shapes. I made several cuts in a Tootsie Roll and shaped them into tree branches. Simple. Easy. Fun.
Caramel Apple Tree-ts were the perfect way to say, “Thank Y-HOOT!” I printed the Lil’ Hoots Halloween Paper on white glossy full-sheet labels and cut the labels to fit over the name brand label on the caramel apples. A tag and a black sheer ribbon bow completed the packaging.”
