So we finally hashed out a date and settled on a vendor that was way under budget and would accommodate that date - Halloween of 18! Which was a lot harder than we thought it would be. The venue, Huntsville State Park, is gorgeous, and will host about 75 people. Groovy, that's not too many people for either of us! So it's a Legend of Zelda wedding on Halloween, and we encourage guests to come in cosplay. Best party ever!!
Except that the food has me drawing a complete and total blank. I think about the menu and hear the wind blowing over the desert. We figure the time will be afternoon/evening, so we know we have to feed people more than cookies. The cookie table, however, is all I have figured out XD
Because it's a state park, we have to provide our own catering. Kay. My MoH's husband has a catering company and I know his food is amazing. But I have absolutely no idea what to tell him. I thought about trying to have an all elvish-inspired sit down menu, but there aren't many cookbooks for Lord of the Rings or Legend of Zelda.
After looking up Halloween menu ideas, all I got were lots of booze and pumpkin spice and pumpkin soup and pumpkin ravioli... Tasty as those are, it's a little much XD Buffet leaves me with the same blank. And Halloween party foods I found were all little kid stuff.
So what do you feed 70 people at a fantasy wedding on Halloween that celebrates nerds other than lots of Pocky?
