Aaron and I threw our somewhat-annual Halloween dinner party this evening. I say "somewhat" because we missed it last year.
Instead of the usual mingle-roni style party, this is a sit-down dinner party. I really like setting up a long table with place settings and creating a mood with only lit candles for light.
We don't have a huge crowd... just enough so we can all visit and catch up with one another over a meal.
I made these little ghost napkin rings/favors out of mini-gourds for the place settings.
I also made a spooky tablescape to help set the mood.
Pretty gross right?
My mom helped me make kimbap for appetizers and store-bought pot stickers went with them nicely.
Aaron grilled up the bulgogi that had been marinating for 24 hours.
Look at this dessert table! All our guests brought a fabulous dessert.
I was thrilled they all came in costume.
Aaron and I went as Day of the Dead characters. I couldn't bear the idea of wearing all that face paint at the last minute and got us masks instead. It was a great spooktacular evening.
