Almost too late to post for this year but too cute not to share 
This a such a cute way to serve veggies at a Halloween get together. 
Doesn't look too time consuming. 
I do have one thing to say about it, I'd make sure everyone darn well saw it before the eating began!

What can I say "this is so cute and clever"
So many times I see books that have torn pages or some kid has taken a color crayon and colored on the pages.  This would be a good use for those.
