This Halloween brunch is such a fun way to enjoy time with your little ones and your girlfriends at the same time.
A mom n’ me Halloween brunch is a more casual way to enjoy Halloween while the older kids are in school.
I love getting together with my girlfriends and this Halloween brunch is a great way to do that without the stress of having to find a sitter for our little ones. It is casual enough that kids can play and have fun. Plus, moms can visit and enjoy the sounds and flavors of the season. For this Halloween mom n’ me brunch, you need to create a delicious menu. I like to infuse fall flavors into the menu to keep it in keeping with season. Our gluten-free pecan pie bread pudding was at the top of my list for menu planning.
These ghost sandwiches from our spooky sandwich bar Halloween party would have been perfect too…next time!
I just love how decadent and delicious it is but it’s also so easy to make! I also put together a breakfast charcuterie and cheese board. Choosing dark fruits like figs, blackberries and grapes all placed on a black wood board, creates that eerie Halloween look. Add some boiled eggs for that extra breakfast feel.
You can also add plastic spiders for an extra creepy look. Our pumpkin fudge pretzel dip is a lovely addition to your charcuterie board especially when served with gluten-free Glutino pretzels for dipping. This is a great dish for little hands.
The pretzels are so good nobody would ever know they are gluten-free either. In addition to these dishes, we also served up our no-bake gluten-free ghost cookies. The kiddos especially love these! They also love our gluten-free witches finger cookies…
For drinks, I love just serving an easy orange and black bottled soda that fits well with the decor. Speaking of decor, pick up some black and white blankets, plus some deep purple and orange pillows for the couch. A black cobweb table cloth will also really add a fantastic Halloween touch to your serving table.
Florals are always a party of my parties because they add life and beauty. This time I chose oranges and whites with some deep purple flowers as well. I got them all from my local grocery store then put them together.
My awesome photographer suggested I had black eyes and a ghost mouth to the big white one and it turned out sooo cute and festive. Need more tips for arranging flowers on a budget? Check out our simple white flower arrangements we made for $15 each!
