Boo-tiful Ghost Lunch

The other day, while perusing Pinterest, I saw this post suggesting using a tulip cookie cutter as a ghost.  Brilliant!!!!   I am totally going to use this down the line for a Pac-Man lunch but for today, I stuck with a Halloween theme.

  • Sandwich pocket, decorated with 2 little ghosts cut from a tortilla using the mini tulip cutter and decorated with a food safe marker
  • Cucumber and tomato slices, decorated with a "Boo" cupcake pick
  • Red grapes with a ghost cupcake pick
  • Mini candy bar
  • Lunchbox Love Note from the Halloween series
Here are some of the items, or similar items, I used when creating this lunch:

This lunch was super easy and quick to make.   For other lunches that were made in 15 minutes or less, check out:

  3. Really cute lunch! I can definitely see the tulip cutter being used for Pac Man.
