Free Printable Halloween Food Labels

FoodLabel

A party guest having fun holding up my Eyeball Punch tent card next to his phony black eye.

Here are some free, printable Halloween food labels to help your guests identify your devilish dishes. Labeling your food improves your party guests’ experience by providing transparency around nutritional information. If done right, they can also enhance the spooky spirit of your Halloween party. As you can see from this picture, the labels can actually become part of the fun themselves!

Unlike bottle labels for wine and soda, which should be purchased as stickers because they need to stick to bottles and contend with condensation all night, food labels can simply be printed at home and folded as tent cards. This makes them easier to customize and saves you a few dollars as well. In the spirit of helping you plan the perfect Halloween party, I thought I’d share the template I created for my Halloween food label tent cards. Feel free to use this template as you see fit, free of charge. Just be sure to let people know where you found it, if they ask!

Halloween Bottle Labels for Wine & Soda

0

Sticking a spooky glow-in-the-dark Halloween label to your bottle of wine, soda, or spirits is a super-quick way to add some fun to your drinks. Kids will love the eerie pop bottles and adults will get a kick out of seeing scary stickers on the bottle of their favourite drink. They instantly transform wine, soda, and liquor into bottles of poison, blood, zombie virus, truth serum, witch’s brew, and other devilish drinks!

While there are some printable templates available on the internet, I always prefer to buy professionally-made stickers for three simple reasons: they look better, they stick better, and they’re cheap. Since your labels need to stick to bottles and contend with condensation all night, it’s best to avoid homemade versions. To top it off, ready-made stickers will save you time as well, and if you’re responsible for organizing and hosting a Halloween party, you’ll need all the help you can get. This is one simple, inexpensive way to add fun to your party with virtually no effort.

Carol’s ‘The Walking Dead’ Cookies

6

The-Walking-Dead-Carol-Cookies-Recipe-Card-AMCHere’s the official recipe for Carol’s cookies from The Walking Dead. If you’re a fan of the hit AMC zombie drama, you’ve likely wondered — like me — what Carol’s chocolate-applesauce cookies taste like. In my case, it had less to do with a genuine gastronomic curiosity and more to do with the fact that these were the cookies she offered them to a young boy after she threatened to feed him to walkers!

Regardless, they’re a tasty treat and oh-so-perfect for Halloween parties – especially zombie-themed ones! This recipe is for a dozen cookies, so if you want “lots and lots of cookies,” (see what I did there?)  you might want to make more than one batch.
