Take Your Creepy Cocktails and Eerie Appetizers to the Next Level This Halloween

Posted

Pick On Us has the tools to complement your

bewitching brews and mouth-watering menus!

September is almost in the books and we are entering the busiest time of the year. Our first holiday up is...Halloween! Before the holiday creeps up on you, plan ahead. From large-scale catering events to smaller gatherings, Pick On Us has the tools to take your bewitching brews and mouth-watering menus to the next level.


Here are a few tips from us for Halloween events:

Plan ahead

Confirm your head count and order supplies and ingredients as needed. With more holidays, right around the corner, consider ordering in bulk to save on costs.


Recommend a signature cocktail to your client 

This is a perfect opportunity to have fun and get creative with concoctions. Whip up a batch of poison apple martinis or Zombie Apocalypses. To really punch up your beverages use a themed pick. Pick On Us’ Witch Pick is a great visual to add a pop to a cocktail.


Desserts are a must

Since Halloween is synonymous with sweets; desserts are a must at your festivities. Pick On Us’ Large Skull Pick is a scary way to finish a piece of devil cake or graveyard mousse. These holiday picks are available in orange and white and come in packs of 100.


Keep it light and fun

If children are attending the event, keep the aesthetic light and fun for little ones. Top cupcakes with an endearing Jack-o-Lantern Pick or a Black Cat Pick .


Provide healthy options

While Halloween is filled with delicious desserts and decadent cocktails, consider incorporating (not replacing…) healthier food and drink options. A cheese display or a simple meat station balance out the pallet and provide protein in contrast to sugar. And don’t forget to stay on theme and pick it! Our Multi-Color Skull Picks are available in bulk and quickly dress up a simple menu item.


Be prepared for leftovers

Finally, don’t forget about leftovers. Have a plan in place for how to package them. Pick On Us has a variety of collapsible and eco-friendly to-go packaging that are both beautiful and functional.

No tricking! Just treats!
