Olive & Cocoa Signature

ALL AGLOW

A flicker of candlelight creates a mysteriously chic surrounding.
Make lighting low and eerie with lanterns, tealights or festive luminaries
set on the dining table. With the addition of an LED candle, our
Mischevious Papier Mâché Skull makes the perfect spooky lighted
centerpiece! Complete the look with glowing vessels on
the front steps and patio to welcome guests.

Witch's Brew

Mix up your own special witch's brew!
A swizzle of bourbon and ginger beer
is extra bubbly, and makes a delicious
autumn cocktail for the adults. For
the little ones, make a batch of old
fashioned root beer and server it in
a decorative black cauldron with dry
Ice for an extra spooky sip.

TRICKS & TREATS

It just wouldn't be Halloween without frightfully sweet treats! Serve a spread
of old fashioned candy, chocolate and caramel apples sliced to share. You can
also incorporate treats in to fun activities for the kids. We love a "donut-on-a-string"
eating contest (no hands!) and as always, the classic fun of bobbing for apples.
Serve dark and rich desserts for the adults, like chocolate ganache cake topped with
black Over the Hill Tapers. Turn out the lights and let the kids blow out the candles!

Harvest Flavor

Fall appetizers such as pumpkin
balsamic ravioli or roasted sage
butternut squash bites bring the taste
of autumn to the table, and are easy
to serve buffet style. Set out a large
platter of each along with frightful
appetizer plates and let guests
casually serve themselves.
