Spice up your Halloween party food with these awesome Halloween Party Food Tags! These cute tags are a great way to show off your amazing food, and provide a yummy description of it all!
I don’t know about you, but I like to know what I’m eating before I eat it. If I eat at a buffet, I appreciate having name tags alongside all of the food. I certainly don’t want to bite into a little nugget of fried alligator thinking it is chicken.
I might be adventurous enough to try alligator or perhaps not, but I want to make that choice. I also have food allergies and nothing is more embarrassing than popping what looks like a yummy morsel into my mouth and feeling the crunch of a pecan.
I have to find a way to politely spit it out without insulting the cook.
So when I host a party, I always create food tags for each dish.
I usually just write the name of the dish and a brief description.
I like to give my Halloween party foods fun names so it enhances the entire party experience. If you cook with any foods, like peanuts or shellfish, that can cause an allergic reaction, make sure you note that on your food tags.
I’ve created templates that you can use to re-create these food tags for your parties. You can print them out and simply handwrite the names of your dishes on each card. If you have a photo software program like Photoshop just import the pdf files and add your text. Once printed, just cut along the dotted lines and fold each card in half.

Click on the links below to find full-size printable templates for each of the three party-themed hats.
Print onto card stock and cut around the edges being sure to keep the tab attached to each hat.
Fold over the flap and adhere double stick tape to the flap.
Roll the hat into a cone and seal the flap along the opposite edge of the hat.
Secure by adding some single-sided tape to the inside of each hat along the flap.
Punch one hole on either side of the hat. (I like to reinforce the hole by adding some tape inside of the hat before punching the hole.) Tie 18″ pieces of ribbon around each hole.
At your party, tie the ribbons under your guest’s chin.
I hope your guests are better looking than my models!

HUNGRY HALLOWEEN THEMED CANDY FILLED PARTY FAVORS
Over the past few years, my husband and I have hosted themed Halloween parties and three of our most popular party themes are featured in Hungry Halloween.
Each of the themes is the focus of an entire chapter in the book and I show you how do decorate your house and create food to fit the theme.
|Be-witched Buffet themed box|
I tend to use a lot of store-bought items for my parties because although I am very creative, I am not a great artist. I can draw well enough if I have an image to work from, but I don’t have the talent to just create an original work of art.
I tend to use a graphics program filled with free clip art to design my party goods, but when I needed some original artwork for my book, I was fortunate enough to have Katya (my Russian daughter/exchange student) create unique drawings for my book.
|Dead Man’s Diner theme|
She captured the essence of each party theme so well that I wanted to create party goods featuring this fun artwork that you can use for your own parties.
*Please note that Katya’s original artwork is copyrighted and you need permission to redistribute it or use it for anything you will sell. So please don’t post these templates to another website or blog without my permission.*
|Movie Monster Munchies theme|
For the first project, I’ve created simple candy bags that you can print out onto matte or glossy card stock and cut and fold yourself. You can make these to give out at your party, or if you have older kids who can use scissors, you can have them create their own bags during your party.
|Print out and cut out template.|
Print out the desired templates. Cut out template including the white tabs that are marked with dotted lines. Use an Exacto knife to cut out the white section of the handles.
Fold the box along all of the fold lines. To see fold lines click this link. Fold Line Template I lay a ruler along the fold lines and fold over the ruler. You can also use the edge of a table or counter. Just lay the box over the edge of the counter and make your folds.
Glue the tabs and press together to seal. I also add a small amount of tape along the tabs on the inside of the bag. This ensures the bag will stay together once the candy is added.
Close the bottom of the bag. Re-enforce the bottom of the bag by adding some tape inside along the tabs. Fill with an assortment of Halloween candies or homemade candies.
