Appetizers

Hum-Hum-Hum | Hummus Trio

You can summon Beetlejuice by calling his name 3-times. Similarly, Lydia calls out “home-home-home” to escape his mossy-dead-man clutch. So, what better way to begin your Beetlejuice theme night than with a three-times pleasing snack tray.

Go with your favorite hummus as a play on “home-home-home”, or any other dip you desire.

These are hand-drawn little touches, you can print and glue to scrapbook paper with a toothpick – adding all the charm.


Cupcakes

This is truly the easiest and most fun thing you can do!

I took the easy way out and purchased boxed cupcake mix because I am truly not a baker. We used a traditional cream cheese frosting with bright green food coloring. We also added purple sprinkles and eye-ball candies to make things a little more festive.

All the toppers were made using scrapbooking paper from the craft store, markers, toothpicks, and hot glue to attach the sticks to the paper. Using scrapbook paper for just about all the decor is a creative and inexpensive way to add the perfect authentic style and personal touches to any themed event/party.
