You can mix it with vodka or gin to taste*, for a devilish concoction!!

*I tried it with a dash of Triple Sec and thought it tasted like the devil 😮

My favorite fall martini is a Pumpkin Pie Martini here

    What scary fun Jenna! This witch wants to park her broom by your table for a Mar-tin-eeeeee! Adorable Halloween plates and your rhyme is oh so fun too. We love Pellegrino Sparkling Blood Orange for the extra effervescence for mimosas 🙂

  3. What a fiendishly clever table! I love those Pellegrino sodas — very tasty. I discovered a while ago that they are fantastic mixers with rum or vodka. Hadn’t thought about using triple sec, but I think I added some Limoncello once to the lemon variety.

  4. Cute! But I’ll have to admit, it was those scalloped potatoes that really caught my eye first. I must be hungry. But I did eat breakfast… lol

    ADORABLE!! Love every bit of it. Must try the orange pellegrino, sounds delicious.
    On another note, I stopped by to say that you are one of the guests to receive the very raspberry october tea tags. As it turns out, October has such an effect on me that I was inspired to give away more. 🙂

  11. So much fun!!! I’m craving Cheetos right now! I haven’t had any in more than a year. They’re a fun touch to the Halloween table!

    You do such a great job with your custom dish and glassware! It always completes the table!!!

    • Thanks Alycia!! I actually didn’t paint these glasses, I found them on super clearance a while back, cheaper than I could buy and paint them myself. Good news about the Cheetos, I discovered that if you leave them out in a bowl for a few hours in a humid climate while you take pictures, they will get stale and you won’t eat them!! 🙂

  12. This table is so fun! I love how you added the infusion of neons. It’s always such a task to find a new approach to Halloween, but this really fits the bill… 🙂
