Halloween - The most wonderful time of the year!

I turn into a little kid again when Halloween approaches. I'm thrilled that this year, my 17 year-old son wants to throw a costume party for his friends, but he wants the food to be "cool". This translates to something not too campy, but more along the adult appetizer line, just jazzed a bit for the holiday. I'm planning a simultaneous adult party in the garage to give the kids their privacy. Any food ideas that could go both ways would be welcome. Also, any spooky decorating ideas? Sky's the limit.
