Haunted Mansion Dinner
Welcome foolish mortals! We invite you to a Haunted Mansion dinner party. Get all the recipes, a full menu, spooky DIY decor ideas, and free printables. Your guests will never forget their night in the Haunted Mansion. Hurry back!
About the Haunted Mansion
The Haunted Mansion is a Disney parks dark ride attraction placing riders inside a haunted mansion with “999 happy haunts”. Riders experience a haunted house filled with ghostly residents who have taken full possession of the premises. The attraction inspired the 2003 movie entitled “The Haunted Mansion” and a 2021 movie starring the Muppets called “Muppets’ Haunted Mansion.”
the Tablescape & Decor
We decked out our dining room in Haunted Mansion style for this party. Above our buffet we displayed prints of the Haunted Mansion family portraits along with a Haunted Mansion themed grapevine wreath. We created the wreath for just $12 using inexpensive materials from Joann Fabrics and Dollar Tree.
Our serving buffet housed a host of haunted desserts: graveyard mousse, ghost host cookies, white chocolate skulls, and Haunted Mansion wedding cakes. We displayed a framed Welcome Foolish Mortals printable which you may download for free here .
Constance Hatchaway presided over the buffet with her wedding bouquet, a string of pearls, and a single candle. Cobwebs, spiders, and a raven added to the spooky vibe.
Our table was dressed in an inexpensive purple table covering topped with black spider web lace . We displayed two antique silver candleabras with white tapers and a bowl of grapes. If you look closely, you may notice that the grapes are home to a family of spiders. Eeeek!
We kept entertaining simple for this dinner by using Masterpiece heavy weight plastic tableware by Tableluxe paired with their Reflections flatware . We nested each place setting on a silver charger and flanked it with a creepy skeleton hand wine glass .
We displayed a black cloth napkin tied with purple satin ribbon and a Haunted Mansion printable tag on top of each setting. We added a purple jeweled spider ring for each guest as a take home favor.
We’re so glad you’ve joined us for dinner! Tonight’s menu features dishes inspired by The Haunted Mansion’s icons – Madame Leota, the Ghost Host, and the infamous Constance Hatchaway. We hope you enjoy! Get links to all the recipes below.
Madame Leota Mocktail
This Haunted Mansion inspired mocktail magically glows green. Made with a combination of Granny Smith apple syrup, Sprite, and lemonade it offers the perfect combination of sweet and tart. Add a bit of dry ice and you’ll awaken the spirits! Get our recipe here.
Haunted Mansion Charcuterie Board
Charcuterie boards offer something for everyone! This board features Sage Derby cheese cut into a crystal ball shape with an image of Madame Leota. Vanilla blueberry chevre, brie cut into a coffin shape, and an assortment of fruits, breads, and crackers round out the board. Get our tutorial for creating your own Madame Leota Charcuterie Board here.
decomposed shepherd's pie
Blackberry blue cheese salad.
Aren’t these individual “decomposed” shepherd’s pies creepy! It was my dad’s idea to serve these in miniature coffins . Brilliant! We love Martha Stewart’s recipes for Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie and Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes . The Blackberry Blue Cheese Salad is our own recipe and was also featured on our Disney Villain’s dinner.
Graveyard Mousse Cups
These rich and decadent chocolate mousse cups are topped with Oreo crumbles, a candy bone, and a delicious tombstone cookie in Haunted Mansion’s signature purple and black color scheme. Eerily enticing! Get our recipe here.
Haunted Mansion Wedding Cakes
These miniature Haunted Mansion inspired wedding cakes are nothing short of decadent! Red velvet cake is enveloped in fluffy white buttercream frosting. The cakes are adorned with pearls, blue flowers, a candy hatchet and blood (a.k.a. red gel icing). We served these with blackberry sorbet and a white chocolate skull. We think Constance would approve! Get our tutorial here.
Ghost Host Cookies
A Haunted Mansion dinner wouldn’t be complete without Ghost Host cookies! These light and tasty sugar cookies are topped with classic royal icing and served in a miniature wooden coffin. Get our Ghost Host Cookie recipe here.
