Sing it with me… It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. That’s right! It’s Halloween! You guys know how much I LOVE this time of year! We’ve got our yard decorated with our growing “family” of skeletons, we have our costumes ready to go, and we’ve made fun plans for trick-or-treating, and we had a fun Halloween party when my cousin came to town! Yeah, this is OUR season!
Let’s talk about that Halloween party, shall we? It was a lot of fun, while still being simple and laid back.
I was inspired by the Fanta Halloween packaging, featuring Noma Bar designs inspired by Universal’s new Mummy and their other classic monster characters. I loved the black and white designs so much, I thought it would be fun to create a Black & White Halloween Movie Party! The orange Fanta was the perfect pop of color in our spooky tablescape!
When I saw the Fanta’s Halloween packaging at Shaw’s I knew it would be perfect for our little get together! The designs are really cool! I love the classic Halloween film characters!
I grabbed a 2-liter bottle to use in a punch recipe and a 12-pack of cans for party guests to enjoy. Fanta’s irresistible fruity flavor and fun, bold colors bring scary movie night to life (and put mom in the director’s chair of creating a moment her family will love).
The punch was the centerpiece of the food table. All of the food was black and white, so the orange of the Fanta really popped!
This punch recipe is super simple and only calls for 3 main ingredients (+2 if you’re adding eye balls!)
-1 2L bottle of Fanta Orange
-1 bottle (approximately 2 quarts) of Pineapple Mango juice (or other tropical pineapple juice)
-3 cups any flavor sherbet (I used Lime-Orange-Lemon)
Pour the Fanta and juice into a large punch bowl, and stir. Add the “eyeballs” if desired, and then add in your sherbet! Done!
Now, about those eyeballs…
There are a few ways you can make them. The easiest is to use lychee, and pop a blueberry in the middle. I didn’t have lychee, but I did have apples (because it’s fall in New England and we’re all up to our eyeballs in apples *pun intended* haha) I used a melon baller to carve out little balls of apple. Then with a knife, I carved a smaller hole in the middle, and pressed the blueberries in. If you don’t have apples or lychee, you could also use melon or pears.
I also made a yummy Black & White popcorn mix! For this I used:
-1 bag Pop Secret microwave popcorn
– 1 cup crushed chocolate sandwich cookies
– 1 bag black candy coated chocolates
– marshmallow sauce ( 4 heaping tablespoons marshmallow cream and 3 tablespoons water. Combine in a saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring continuously, until smooth)
Pop popcorn according to package directions and pour into a large bowl. Pour the marshmallow sauce on top and mix well. Add crushed cookies and candies and mix again. I set up our food and drink on the buffet which sits just below the TV. It was the perfect spot. Our guests wouldn’t miss a minute of the movie if they got up to grab more snacks!
I had picked up some white and black gauze material to use at the table cloth. Small black and white skulls, pumpkins and trees made up the rest of the decor.
I had a lot of fun coming up with ideas for black and white snacks! I grabbed a bag of blue corn tortilla chips and paired those with queso blanco, served in a spider web bowl!
I also made some cookies and cream marshmallow pops and white chocolate covered cookies.
The punch, snacks, and sweet treats were a hit! Avery was thrilled that we let her stay up and hang out with the “big girls”
