6. Jack-O-Lantern Cooler
Skip the generic cooler and replace it with a jack-o-lantern cooler for your next Halloween inspired brunch. This is a great idea to bring because it not only serves a function but it also is a great festive decoration.
Here’s how to make this cooler: First, pick out a pumpkin that would be able to fit the bowl you want to place inside to hold the drinks or one that is big enough for your liking. Second, cut off the top so you can fit all the drinks in and hollow out the inside. Finally, put ice in a bowl with your drinks and put it inside the pumpkin.
For the last step, you can choose to for-go the bowl and just put ice and your drinks straight into the pumpkin. However, if you use a bowl you could carve a face on the front to add another level of festivity.
7. Pumpkin Deviled Eggs
