Halloween dinner

Halloween has not been very common to celebrate in Sweden. Before I moved to the US (in 1999) no one celebrated it. During the 9 years we lived abroad people started to pay attention to it a little bit, but this year I think it has exploded. There were so many images of people dressed up for parties or trick or treating from my Swedish Facebook friends. I enjoy Halloween to some extent after my 9 years in the US. I like the decorations and the fun things you can do around Halloween parties, but I’m not much for the overly spooky or creepy things. I’m too easy to scare. 🙂

My husband’s brother and his family has lived in the US for many years too and this summer they moved back home again. My sister-in-law and I quickly decided to do a little Halloween dinner for the family (siblings only). So, yesterday we went shopping, prepared dinner and had the family over of a little fun get-together.

We made chili con carne, and had sallad, baguette and different cheeses. Yummy!

I had prepared Halloween decorations for cupcakes ahead of time and baked the muffins yesterday morning before we went to their house. I had a lot of fun preparing my “spooky decorations”. I researched a little on the net in order to get some hints as how to make a ghost and a witch hat. I’ve “only” made flowers from sugar paste before and never figures, but it was a lot of fun and I’ll definitely do it again. I’ll try to come up with something fun to make for the Christmas season. Not sure if I’ll do cupcakes or a regular cake but decorations I got to have! 🙂

    Those ghosts are so precious! 🙂 I prefer the cutesy Halloween stuff over the scary stuff.
