Halloween.. it was spookily good!

The 28th October finally came, and Grahame & Green did Halloween!

The drinks
The condiments
The broom... sorry, breadsticks!

Arthur (And(y)i for the evening) was our best starter yet!
He had only one request...
The full buffet menu was: Andi-Pasti, assorted condiments and breads, Spicy Guacamole, Mozzarella Balls in a Pesto dressing, Marchengo-stuffed Red Peppers, Sweet & Sour Chorizo, Vegan Lasagne, Sweet Potato mashed with Soy Sauce, Mango Chutney, Coriander and Chilli, Salad, Butternut Squash & Cranberry Soup and Chilli, Fruit and Nut Rocky Road for dessert.

Butternut Squash soup served in lab beakers, and served in vintage spice jars with a straw
Giant Snotballs... blame the 10yr old! Or mozzarella in a homemade pesto dressing
Orge's Toes, or stuffed red peppers
Vegan Lasagne

Cooking and serving in a Victorian jacket (it was the two layers of boning!) was not an option, so I essentially spent the evening in my underwear (on the top half at least!)... and I particularly loved the contrast with my Naked Cowboys Temptapron ;o)

Finally, fully decked out in my Victorian finery!  I never got my wig (customs... bah humbug!) but a last minute panic of feathers and a headband did the trick.  Not the Halloween "costume" I had in mind, but suitably Victorian at least - thanks to the 10yr old and her best friend, H.

Who also "put their hand" to the boyf's costume... clever girls!

Megs did so well... she was the perfect Bat-Dobe and didn't even chew her wings!

Everyone looked amazing, the drink flowed and the food went down a treat.  A grand night was had by all, and then we all went to the pub...!
