This was at their own horse barn in Los Altos Hills, no horses there anymore, but it made for a perfect setting for a great party! I had made 13 different Hor D'Ouevres items and sweets to keep the ghouls and goblins happy. Pictured are the highlights of my food! Hope you all had a safe and nourishing Halloween! See you soon!
