From sweet to salty to appetizers and main dishes, this Halloween we’re bringing everything to the table. This spooky holiday isn’t only concerned with candy and today, we’re unwrapping the best Halloween party food ideas. Think creepy crawly, scary sweet and extra yummy.

We’ll start off with some starters of course! Designate a table at the party as the “food table.” Most of the dishes that you will serve will also act as party décor too thanks to their detail and cutesy-ness.
The Great Pumpkin Cheeseball
This is the perfect fall and Halloween festive dip and not to mention, what a great conversation starter. The pumpkin-shaped cheese ball looks too adorable and will be the perfect addition to the appetizer table. Your guest might not even want to eat it because it looks so pretty.

Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs
Who said that party food can’t be healthy? These yummy little treats are easy and fun to make and they turn out looking like mini pumpkins. All you need to make these are clementine oranges and a few sticks of celery. Add these little pumpkins to any fruit tray to spice it up!
A party wouldn’t be much without drinks. You can also set up a drink table at the party! Give the different options names like The Witch’s Brew and Brew-Ha-Ha. A spooky and perfect element for the drink table is dry ice. All eyes are sure to be on the drink table when you serve up a bubbling cauldron of mysterious potion.
The perfect center piece on the refreshment table, all eyes will be on this beverage (literally). We love the idea of getting festive with how you serve the drinks and using a big cauldron. It’s fun for your guests, and even you, to think that the ingredients in the drinks are not drinkable, but they are!
There’s nothing too scary about the lime and pineapple juices that make up this drink. But, putting the punch in a second bowl of dry ice really gives the beverage that eerie feel. Perfect for you Halloween bash!

If you are serving a full dinner at your Halloween party this year, you can choose to do buffet style or serve everyone at the table. Once the main dishes are ready, you can clear the appetizer table and make room the the real deal! Let’s see what we’ll be serving up!
Hot Dog Mummies
These little guys are great for the kids table and the adults too! This is Halloween style pigs in a blanket at their finest. Bonus: these are super easy to make. All you need are a package of hot dogs and a roll of croissant dough.
Since the hosts of the party would like to enjoy the fun too, our main dishes will be easy to make, just like this one. Everyone loves pizza and this is a festive way to make it! Use a ghost shaped cookie cutter to cut the mozzarella cheese, add sauce, bake it and you’re done. Beware, the cheese will melt and turn into big blobs that look nothing like ghosts. To prevent this from happening, bake the pizza and add the cheese just five minutes before it’s done.
They say the best part of a meal is the dessert and at our Halloween party that logic stays the same. Okay Okay, we did say that Halloween isn’t all about the sweets, but it actually is. Check out these mouth watering sweet treats.
How yummy and spooky do these chocolate cupcakes look? Give your favorite guests a little scare when they reach for the sweets.

How cute are these graveyard pudding cups? Liven up your Halloween party with this dessert and guess what, the pudding is pumpkin flavored too! All you need for these are pudding mix, Oreo cookies (crushed up), Milano cookies and a little bit of melted chocolate to write RIP.
