I’m not sure if I’ve explained the whole concept of this party fully. This was a three course meal where each guest filled out a menu themselves, picking what they would eat for each course. No two dinners were served up the same. The fun part is that the drink, utensils, and food, all have different names–scary, spooky names. So no one really knows what they are ordering. Then each course is brought out separately and someone might get all utensils and no food, or a cupcake and spaghetti sauce. It’s a fun, wacky way to celebrate Halloween.
This is my party suggestion: have a few friends on hand to help. Also, set up food stations where you can find each menu item. I had silverware in one spot, the drinks in another, the pasta and sauce on the stove, etc. And I had a decoding menu “key” in a central location so that we could figure out what to serve up. Each of my helpers and myself were assigned to different kids. For the person we were assigned to, we filled their order for that course, we took their food out to them, and we cleared their plates. This kept everything running smoothly and we could make sure that every teen got their food and wasn’t waiting.
