dangit....all I get off Amazon is the name at the top of the page, my computer is probably blocking pix.
Thanks Tin for pointing me in that direction, I'll see if Restaurant Depot can come through.

Good idea Kuan.

Could you make a cheese cake look like candy corn by using separating rings when pouring the filling? Maybe an outside lemon ring, a middle pumpking ring and small white center with some other flavor. I was thinking of cotton candy as cobwebs, I think that would be unusual and very striking. Maybe a sangria punch bowl with a cauliflower "brain" in it? I really like the idea of apple wedges with dipping sauces and toppings. People do like to create and play with their food. I believe that concept would be a real winner.

I agree, definately get the Halloween issue. Of course, it is smaller and more expensive than the Oct issue, but it has tons of ideas in it. It's funny; because it's an all women party, I think some of them may recognize the ideas you pull out.

I’ve been watching this thread with interest. Here is my $.02:

Dracula theme for ladies screams (no pun intended) Old World posh Transylvania with and a little bit of tongue in cheek: more about decoration than anything else. Brass candle operas with black or deep red candles, cheesy ornate goblets with sugared fruit pouring out, and dry ice is a must.

I love the cotton candy idea. Can you see a vertical dessert display with mounds of wispy white cotton candy as fog/mist creeping around it? Black and deep red petites fours, maybe some simple dark chocolate ganache tartlets with a smidge of edible gold.

I once did a Halloween ladies to-do and did the caviar thing, it worked well. I also stuffed jumbo black olives with a cream cheese roasted garlic mix and then stuck them on toothpicks in a topiary type display. Maybe some marinated cherry tomatoes in cool glass pedestal containers for color.

I just can’t get Vlad the Impaler out of my head. A stake through the artichoke heart? Something with pomegranates as drops of blood.

By the way, I don’t know about your area, but around here you can only purchase dry ice 5 pounds at a time, something to do with it being used in crystal meth production. You might want to check and stock up in increments if you have to.
