Every year on October 31st we have a special, spooky family Halloween dinner. It has fun, spooky recipes, but is still very kid friendly. Here are all the details!
Our traditional Halloween dinner
Ever since I was a little girl, my family has done a traditional Halloween dinner. We do it a little earlier on Halloween night so there’s still time for trick or treating.
It was always one of my dad’s favorite things to put together, and I’ve followed in his footsteps. It doesn’t take much effort, and makes the day even more fun and special.
And as a bonus, you don’t just eat candy for Halloween dinner.
How to make this Halloween dinner super easy
I’ve made this Halloween dinner even easier for myself this last two years because I order my groceries through Walmart+ and have them delivered to my house.
A Walmart+ membership is only $98 annually ($12.95 if you pay monthly), and one of their benefits is free same-day delivery from your store on groceries and more as long as the order’s over $35 (restrictions apply).
How grocery delivery works with Walmart+
Walmart+ works like other delivery memberships, with specially trained shoppers pick your groceries day of so you get the freshest items. They send you alerts when they’re picking up and dropping off, along with the drivers name, so everything is safe and secure. And you can even choose contactless drop off so they just place it on your porch!
I can even order paper goods, so I found these cute paper plates and threw those in my cart to be delivered as well.
Check out how cute our table turned out!
Our Halloween dinner menu this year
There are lots of really gruesome Halloween dinner ideas out there…I’m not a fan of those. I make things that have a spooky feel but they’re more cutesy than gross. I have some good ideas HERE.
- Meatball Eyeballs
- Just frozen meatballs with a slice of string cheese and and olive on top
- Apple teeth
- slices of apples, a smear of peanut butter, and mini marshmallows
- Breadstick bones:
- Pillsbury breadstick dough with knots tied at the ends and baked
- Root beer with dry ice to drink
- Gummy worms on the side
Decorating the Halloween table
I like decorating a pretty table!
The Eek and Boo plates added a fun touch, plus some black candlesticks, creepy cloth (you could do spiderwebs instead), plastic cauldrons, and some pumpkins.
Simple and only slightly spooky.
Try it this year! I’m sure it’ll become one of your favorite traditions too. And sign up for a Walmart+ membership and make it even easier!
