Don’t have time to put together anything really exciting or creative for your Halloween bash? I got your back! This super easy and quick Halloween Veggie Tray will fill your guests full of wholesome nutrient-dense food and it won’t take you years to put together.

Crudités are the one item that you can arrange very quickly and if there are minimal chopping and veggie prepping, they’re even quicker and easy. Taste of Home came up with this great idea, just arrange your crudités in the shape of a Jack-o-lantern.

Veggies are generally safe for most people who have food allergies or who are working on correcting their health or watching their waistlines. I always recommend a veggie tray at parties, it’s saved my life more than once. I always look for a meat and cheese try and if there aren’t any safe meats, the veggie tray is where I turn for safe munchies.

You can also whip up these super easy Spider Deviled Eggs to go with your Halloween veggie tray. Grab some cocktail fixings, some spooky music, and you’re set for a great evening of ghouls and goblins. You’ll even have time to get into your amazing costume and impress your guests.

Veggies are almost always a safe choice when attending parties. This Halloween veggie tray is a perfectly safe option for your guests with food allergies or health concerns.


  • A Large Serving Tray or Cutting Board
  • 1 Large Bag of Baby Carrots
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1 Head of Broccoli
  • 1 Carton of Your Favorite Veggie Dip or Dressing
  • 3 Ramekins or Small Bowls


  • Create an outline for your pumpkin by laying some of the carrots out in an oblong circle. Once the carrot outline is to your liking, carefully fill in the circle with the rest of the carrots.
  • Remove enough of the carrots to create a cucumber-filled smile. Set the carrots you removed on top of the other carrots within your pumpkin.
  • Place halved cucumber slices in the space you created for your carrot pumpkin’s smile.
  • Fill your ramekins with the veggie dip and shimmy them into place where you want the pumpkin’s eyes and nose to be.
  • Slice off the stem of the broccoli head. Place the broccoli at the top of your pumpkin.
  • You can fill your dishes with any low-carb dip or dressing you like, you can use bottled dressings, savory cream cheese spraeds, soft cheeses or you can get fancy with recipes like dairy-free ranch dip.
