Party Foodz Roundup 10/29

Whether you are throwing your first vegan potluck like Melissa or you’re a seasoned pro at hosting shindigs, this time of year seems to bring the party out of people.  With Halloween around the corner and the rest of the holidays coming up, I thought it would be nice to do a roundup of some great party ideas!

Since Saturday is fast approaching, why not get a candy making party together?  Have your friends come over and do all the hard work under the guise that fun will be had!  Muahahaha.

Or you can get the spook in by serving your Halloween guests these gnarly eyeballs courtesy of Allyson at Manifest Vegan!  Mmm.  Just look at ‘em staring back at you.

Maybe you want to, heh, charm your guests instead of scaring them.  Use some not-so-wicked magic with this fantastic book o’ spells from our very own Jeni Treehugger!

I don’t know who decided that parties have to be super extravagant.  Why not invite some friends over for some alphabet tots?  But if you want to be all fancy, here is a cool idea that makes any party look like a million bucks: float some pomegranate seeds in a glass of sparkling dranky drank like Kat Reeves did.

Of course, desserts are a must at any decent party.  Lisa Marie uses leftover pie filling to make these fantastic pumpkin pie cups!

For the chocoholic in us all, take a gander at these babies.  Chocolate Truffles from Herbivore Dinosaur!

For the more advanced party hostess/host, why not throw a Vegan Chopped Challenged.  Test your cooking skills and entertain your friends with your supreme food geekery!  Best picture ever:

Make sure you don’t forget the dips!  Everybody loves a good layer dip and Jessica made a killer one.

And a party isn’t a party until the hummus shows up!  Look at all this chickpea and tahini action.  Mmm.

Hope you got some great ideas for the holiday season.  With only a few days left, I just wanted to say it’s been a pleasure MoFos.  Y’all are an awesome bunch!  Also, have a safe and happy Halloween!
