I love Halloween! Next to Christmas, Halloween is my favorite holiday hands down! There are so many fun things that you can do with food at Halloween. If you are on Pinterest like I am you probably have seen this skeleton dude pictured on someone’s board. I thought he was cute and decided to try my hand out at making him. He isn’t exactly like the one on Pinterest but he still turned out cute regardless!
- 1 cucumber thinly sliced
- 2 celery stalks cut into 4 pieces
- 4-6 baby carrots
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded, deribbed, and cut into thin slices
- 4-6 mushroom thinly sliced
- 2 sweet pea pods
- 2 grape tomatoes
- Black olives sliced
- Parsley or leafy lettuce for the hair
- Ranch dressing/dip in a small bowl
- On a large cutting board or platter (I used my counter top today because I knew my family would be coming in and out of the kitchen to snack on my skeleton).
- Starting with the small bowl, place it at the top of your work area. This is kind of give you are idea of how to start building your skeleton.
- Now, it is time to start building your skeleton. Look at the picture of the skeleton and starting at the top and just work your way down.
- NOTE: I didn't use any grape tomatoes because they were frozen. The grape tomatoes are used as part of the foot with the broccoli
- You may need to adjust things depending on your work space size.
- Once you have your skeleton made and are ready to serve, add the dressing into the small bowl, the parsley or lettuce for the hair and sliced black olives!

I had some grape tomatoes to use for part of his feet but, my 4 year old decided that my fridge needed to be an extra freezer and turned to dial up so pretty much all the food in my fridge was frozen! DOH!!
Deviled egg pumpkins are another fun and easy thing that you can make and serve at a fall/Halloween party. Just add a little orange food color into your yolk mixture and some leafy green celery tops. So easy to make and cute to boot!
