Last year for every season I did a spread on this long pine board that doubled as a dessert/appetizer and centerpiece! Our club’s annual adult Halloween party was last night and I was excited to dig it out for a little pre-party at home. These are our neighbors and friends that know us the best, and everyone insists on bringing something when we get together. Knowing this was the case, I asked them to bring something EASY that could be added to a charcuterie spread with NO need to worry about cute serving dishes or presentation.
Skeleton Charcuterie Centerpiece
I picked up the skeleton parts at Michael’s for $9 and set those out first, along with a small wood board to hold anything that would need cutting. I had a few rats and spiders in my stash that I dotted down the board. It was extremely easy for everyone and turned out great. Here’s what we ended up with!
The board itself is from Home Depot and is an inexpensive piece of pine, already sized at the perfect length for my porch dining table. When we updated the kitchen this summer, it dawned on me that I could now bring the board inside as well! Since last night was muggy, hosting inside was perfect. This was a fun, social way to snack and chat with a group and we will definitely do it again!
Honey and John were in Charlotte all weekend for a lacrosse tournament and, while he was sorely missed, I had a lot of fun joining in with M&M for a group costume.
Everyone’s get-ups were great!
We headed out to the main event to dance away the rest of the night!
The idea to use dessert as a centerpiece was originally born with my Spring Dessert – a pound cake spread. It was such a hit with readers and my girlfriends that came to party that I decided to use it again for a summer soiree. For fall I made a kid friendly spread and in the winter I used it for a teen Superbowl party.
Our dear friends the W’s (that moved to Greenville this summer) are staying with Whit and me this weekend as well. It’s been such a great one!
