Halloween dinner party

vanessa7 | Oct 22, 201708:53 PM     18

Planning a Halloween dinner party and wanted to get input on my menu.

Appetizers:

Barely Buzzed lavender espresso cheddar
Bonne Bouche goat cheese
Proscuitto (on wooden stakes)

Main course:

Cider roasted pork tenderloin with apple chutney
Roasted butternut squash with warm cider vinaigrette
Wild rice with mushrooms
Roasted garlic mashed potatoes
Green beans with shallots
Dinner rolls (probably Sister Schubert)

Dessert:

Pumpkin cheesecake with cinnamon whipped cream
Texas pecan coffee

Still trying to settle on a Halloween themed cocktail, perhaps something with whiskey. We'll have seasonal beer, not sure what kind of red wine. Wondering if I should add another cheese/meat/nut for the appetizers. Perhaps add some grapes or figs? Hoping to make much of it ahead to keep things simple for the day of the party (marinade the tenderloin, chutney, vinaigrette for the salad, mashed potatoes, blanch the green beans, and cheesecake/whipped cream).

Thanks, Chowhound community! Always grateful for your suggestions!
