Dexter Was Here: A Spin on the Halloween Party

Dexter's Dinner Party

This is so creepy. And yet the ideas captured by Amy Lau in her dining room refashion based off of the Showtime Dexter series is incredibly creative! It would be a very cool and unexpected twist on the standard annual Halloween party theme!

The overall look kind of gives me the heeby jeebies, but you have to admit that it’s pretty genius. If you’re ready to recreate for yourself, here’s a little inspiration board I pulled together with help from This Next.

    Red velvet cake shaped into body parts and with flesh colored icing. Blood slides made from clear sugar and a dab of strawberry jam. Fake fingernails frozen into a large block of ice. I read on another board about Vienna sausages decorated with almond slivers to look like severed fingers and fingernails. Fill cheap test tubes with booze or some other drink of choice (red of course).

    I love it! It embodies DEXTER perfectly! Since September 26 is coming very soon and we are having a DEXTER party, I know where my ideas will be coming from. I love the Bloody Orange Vodka idea! :)

    Thank you!

    I totally agree with Lollipop Events & Designs… wouldn’t this make a great Murder Mystery Party if the gore was scaled down a bit?

    I’m picturing all of the guests coming in 1920’s costumes and arriving on the crime scene… and determining the murder as the dinner goes on!

    I agree Amy!! I don’t know if I could actually decorate my annual Halloween party like this — too real, too much blood!

    Brancoprata, but I do admit — it’s great!

    Heeby jeebies is right! But you’re also right that it’s very creative. I can’t decide if I love it or hate it, but I definitely know I’d be pretty nervous sitting at that table ;)
