This posts gets so many page views by Once Upon A Time Fans that I'm going to repost it for those looking for ideas this year.
Ok, this year we have decided to geek out and have a "Once Upon a Time" themed Halloween for the family. We absolutely adore this hit show and if you are not watching it, seriously, watch it!
(Just in case you're wondering, we've been so busy with so many things and for that reason and a million others I haven't been blogging. So, I know it's looking pretty neglected around here.)
I haven't come up with a concrete menu yet, but I have a few ideas off the top of my head. If you are a Once Upon a Time nut like me, you can borrow them if you like! (This would be a great time to make up some DIY menu cards.)
Huntsman's Heart-ey Stew (If your a fan you'll get this)
Sangria as blood red as the Queen of Hearts herself
Sourdough bread bowls satisfying for even the hungriest of dwarves.
Poisoned apple turnover (just like Regina Likes 'em)
Rumplestilt-skin-less (or with skin if you like) potato medley with pastured butter and scallions
Red's "wild" foraged salad w/organic celery salt and raw olive oil
(Ok, it may not be wild foraged but we foraged for it at the local farmer's market. We aren't that adventurous people!)
Maybe an extra large Hansel and Gretel gingerbread house
|Snow or Mary Margaret. Her style can be rustic, princess, or Anthro.|
Here is the table I imagine. Of course any table will do:
|Restoration Hardware Trestle Table. Made from reclaimed wood. I love this table!|
buy some on Etsy from Adhocstock
|Z Gallerie Quadra Dinnerware on left. 13 inch birch "chargers" top right. And again Anthro for the plates bottom right.|
|Think birch and bark when setting a Storybrooke table. Twig flatware is from West Elm. Cork Knife Set from Anthro.|
|Tray with 4 legs from Anthro is a lot of fun and whimsical. It's so very Alice in Wonderland.|
Of course, if you favor the Evil Queen's style (Regina), you may want to go with the Labyrinth table setting from Z Gallerie, which I adore as well.
|You can call her Regina or The Evil Queen. Whatever you prefer.|
|ZGallerie's Labyrinth Collection works well with an Evil Queen Place setting. You can work the Quadra Dinnerware with either motif. Also, the trestle table can go either way. Regina happens to have a trestle table for her home office.|
After dinner we retire to the living room for
|Adam's Scary Apples. via Matt Bites. Visit for the recipe!|
Since I have a house full of males, we won't be dressing up like Storybrooke characters (Storybrooke, Maine is the setting for at least half of the show.) I'd love to know if any fans of the show will be doing so!
Since switching comment platforms, I lost all of the comments you guys made on all of my articles. So, sorry if you asked something and I couldn't get back to you!
