How to throw your own Buffyfest Part 2: The food

So this week we're talking about planning a Buffyfest, something we've become quite used to! In part 1 we discussed wrangling the guests and deciding on what episodes to watch...not an easy task! In this part we're talking munchies. Buffyfest wouldn't be a 'fest without lots of food and drinks to consume - Buffy style, of course! Buffy and Angel had a lot of food references, but as you'll see from the list below, the inspiration can come from anywhere, especially if they're related to blood! Here are a few examples from our parties over the years:

"Ted's" Mini Pizzas
"Angel" Hair Pasta Salad
"Anya's World of Shrimp" Cocktail
"Spuffalo" Wings
"Chips and Dip Girl"
The "Cheese Man" Platter
"Bad Eggs"
"Winifred's" Taco Station
Pancakes - (Funny Shape or Rounds)

Jen's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" Pie
"Ted's" Chocolate cookies (not the drug-laden kind unless ya want to)
Red Velvet Cupcakes (those have Sword of Angelus' through them!)
"Stake through the Heart" Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Slay the "Dragon" Punch
"Blood" Orange Champagne Cocktails
Bloody Marys
"Oh, hey! Juice!"

When you're planning you're own Buffyfest, just have some food fun and be creative! Anything with garlic is pretty much vampire related, and anything with a skewer can be considered "staked," so it automatically falls within theme. You can do a Chinese-fusion type thing if you're watching Firefly at your 'fest. And for Dr. Horrible? FroYo for all, of course.
