2. Literary Characters Welcome
A more highbrow approach is the book club cum Halloween fest. For these types of Halloween party themes, your guest can choose their favorite author or character from literature and you can prepare a spread right out of your favorite banquet scene in a novel. Bear in mind: those thick Russian numbers often devote a few of their thousand pages to a food scene, though you’ll fare better with an aristocratic set up from Tolstoy and Chekhov, than anything out of Dostoevsky’s downtrodden pages. And remember to keep Virginia Woolf away from pools and bathtubs—all those rocks in her pocket wouldn’t end well.
