Halloween is the perfect excuse for a dinner party, so this October, why not throw a sophisticated soirée for your family and friends? Halloween is for adults too, after all.
Drinks Reception and Canapés
Transform your home into a gothic banqueting hall, spooking your guests on arrival with deliciously dark canapés and a devilish drinks display. If you’d rather leave the cooking to the caterers The Wild Fork will serve your guests an array of treats which can be transformed into Halloween tricks. Our Devils on Horsebacks are an obvious choice for their devious name, and our Sweet Potato Fritter with Black Pudding has the complete Halloween colour palette with vibrant orange and striking black!
For a refreshing fizzy pre dinner drink, opt for an unconventional Raspberry Bellini, with pipettes of deep red raspberry purée. This drinks display would not be complete without a dazzling back drop and props. Team Party Pieces’ Spider Fan Hanging Decorations with their Glittering Gold Trick or Treat Letter Bunting for a simple and elegant Gothic display.
The Banquet Table
Have your guests mingle with drinks and canapés in the hallway before a grand reveal of the dining area. Your dinner tables must be a jaw-dropping display. Choose black table cloths to adorn them for a true banqueting feel. Give the centre of the table oodles of height, with impressive candelabras, deep green foliage and dark red roses. These Black Table Sprinkles give the final touch of Halloween pizazz.
Gold cutlery, glass goblets and table runners are all fun additions to give your guests that gothic dining experience. Then, for an easy DIY visual masterpiece, create a stunning display of eerie black and red paper lanterns placed at different heights from the ceiling over your banqueting table.
Your banquet shouldn’t be for the faint hearted, this is Halloween, after all. Treat your guests to something easy on the eye for their starter before plunging them into a beastly main course. Butternut Squash and Pumpkin Soup with Sage Beurre Noisette is a great dish that is sure to go down well with all of your friends and family. Then, for the main course, wow everybody with something they have never seen before; A dish which will keep them gossiping for days! Game is a great way to introduce people to foods which they may not have tried, as well as food which will steal the show at any Halloween banquet.
Our Pheasant Leg is served with Poached Pear, Fondant Potato and a Red Wine Jus; great for warming up your guests in the autumn weather, whilst retaining an eerie visual effect. For a more vibrant and picturesque dish, our Faggot and Rack of Rabbit with Gratin Carrot is certain to have your guests gasping at the dinner table.
