Halloween is Just Around the Corner...

Are you thinking of Having a Halloween Party?

Well Here are a few fun things we found on Martha Stewart and the Net.

Combine All These Elements for a Great Halloween Party

Make a Candy Wreath For Your Front Door!
How Fun To Greet Your Guest With Candy!

Once They Walk In Surprise them with some Harvest Soup in Shot Glasses.

A Nice Warm Soup is Always Nice When you are Coming in From the Brisk Cold. Plus it is easy for your guest to drink and easy to clean up!

Next it is time to offer your guest a "WitchTini" as we like to call it.
This is the perfect glass to serve it in

After a few of these infamous "witchtini's"

You can start your first course with a lovely salad.

Create something with all the fresh fruits that are in season now...Apples, Pears, Cranberries, Figs. There are so many salad worthy fruits this time of year and they taste so great in salad.
If you would like to try one of our favorite salad dressings The Girl and the Fig makes and incredible Fig Balsamic Vinaigrette. It is DELISH and would taste fabulous on a salad with pears, apples, figs or cranberries in it.

Then Keep the Evening Fun & Casual and Make this Fabulous Harvest Pizza!!!

Serves 4
Olive oil, for baking sheet and drizzling
Flour, for dusting surface
1 pound store-bought pizza dough, fresh, or thawed if frozen
8 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, grated (about 2 cups)
6 cups (about 1/2 recipe) Roasted Fall Vegetables, drained and coarsely cut
1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, (optional)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Brush a large baking sheet (preferably rimless) with oil, or line with parchment paper, if desired, for easy cleanup.
On a lightly floured surface, roll and stretch dough into a 12-by-16-inch oval (or as large as will fit on baking sheet); transfer to sheet.
Sprinkle dough with half the mozzarella. Scatter vegetables on top, and dollop with ricotta; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and, if using, rosemary. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Bake until bubbling and golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve.

Before Your Guest Leave Make Sure They Don't Leave Without Dipping Into the Candy Buffet.

Let your guest trick or treat with a cute little bag and some fun jars filled with orange, black and white candy! They are sure to talk about your party for many months to come!

Happy Halloween From A Savvy Event!!!
