Martha Stewart Halloween

I have to admit, this is the first year I have paid close attention to Martha Stweart's Halloween offerings. I broke down and bought her Halloween magazine (a hefty $7.95) a few weeks back. While I haven't gotten around to trying anything very substantial, I do admire her invite ideas (a pumpkin card with a top you pull out to reveal party details) and her pumpkin ice cream sandwiches , which I did try. My partner made some the other night- but substituted molasses cookies to sandwich in the pumpkin ice cream. (We'll be making some more of those very soon.)

There is some criticism of the magazine for not being entirely original. I cannot speak to that, but I can say that springing for the $7.95 is quite worth it. Where else can you find the idea of using a certain kind of cheese (with a vein-y appearance) for French onion soup as part of your Halloween meal? She also is offering a great website, in two parts: Halloween Central and the Halloween Party Shop. The Workshop section is even divided into a week-by-week plan for decor building and party planning.
