Please Evaluate my Halloween Cocktail Party Menu

bblonde | Oct 22, 201206:05 PM     10

Green apple martini punch
Bloody Mary
Ghoulish Fingers (salami wrapped around mozzeralla)
Deviled eyeballs (deviled eggs)
tortilla rollup bones (cream cheese, cheddar, green chiles and tortillas)
Pickled Brains (Martha Stewart pickled cauliflower and pearl onions)
Guacamole
Pumpkin cheeseball
Steak skewers with red pepper sauce (Little bites of steak in the style of anticuchos made with sirloin)
Shriveled potatoes with romesco sauce
Drunken meatballs (bourbon meatballs)
Devils on horseback (prunes wrapped with bacon)
Dentures (unsure about this--apple slices, peanut butter, and marshmallows--may be too much work for the result)
Monster Munch (popcorn, pretzels, candy, almond bark)
Halloween cookies or cupcakes (buy)
Candy (in glass vases)

The cheeses and guacamole will be served with crudite and crackers/corn chips. Not worrying about any particular dietary concerns as this will be quite large, casual, and guests are free to byob and bring dishes as well. This cocktail party will be held slightly outside the dinner hour (8pm). Ideas on quantities per person would be appreciated as well.
