Pizza skulls and baby pineapples are trending this season.
Halloween is the holiday for creativity. From quirky and unique costumes to innovative and icky-looking party snacks, ’tis the season to start brainstorming plans for your frightful festivities. Of course, there are few better places to scroll through inspirations than Pinterest, the social media site full of recipes, crafts, costumes, and so much more.
This year, the site has even launched the web-based Pinterest Haunted House, which you can explore from the comfort (and safety) of your own home while gleaning all sorts of ghoulish ideas for Halloween. Pinterest also provided Food & Wine with some insights, er, “Pinsights” as to which food-themed costumes and terrifying treats are topping people’s searches and saves this year.
