Host a 'True Blood' Bash in Honor of Halloween

Embrace your inner vampire, fairy, or werewolf for a party that’s sure to spook your guests

Whether you're team Eric or team Bill, you know that True Blood is not your average show. With all the vampires, werewolves, shifters, and fairies running around, it’s a good thing the town of Bon Temps, La., is a fictional place — everyone would have been gone a long time ago if it were real. With that said, using the show as inspiration for a scary Halloween bash is a phenomenal idea. 

Take a cue from your favorite True Blood characters on how to make a true Bon Temps menu! 

But before you start sending out Evites requesting that everyone to dress as their favorite character, let’s talk about the possible menu. Don't worry — we won't be serving blood at this soirée. But between every True Blood human’s favorite diner, Merlotte’s, and every vampire’s favorite club, Fangtasia, there's tons of food inspiration to be found.

Before we start conjuring up the menu, let’s consult the professionals. Luckily there's a helpful cookbook just in time for Halloween — True Blood: Eats, Drinks and Bites From Bon Temps was created by the producers of the hit show, Gianna Sobol and Alan Ball, and if anyone knows Bon Temps bites, it’s these two. 


So take a cue from the characters on everything from cocktails to pie with these True Blood menu tips.
