At Tabañero we are hardcore fans of the hit AMC show The Walking Dead, so much so that we partnered with them to create The Official AMC Walking Dead Hot Sauce and Bloody Mary Mix! I mean, if you love hot sauce and Bloody Mary Mix, you may as well have it with a Walking Dead twist to it, right?
As fans who love to entertain, we were looking for ideas on how to throw a Zombie-themed party for the Walking Dead Season Finale, but the thing is we don’t want to spend the entire day preparing. So the ideas below are perfect for those of us who are looking for easy ways to add a Walking Dead twist to a viewing party or even for Halloween.
Without further ado, and for your inspiration, below is our list of the top 5 Walking Dead themed party ideas!
1) The Walking Dead Lollipops
I mean, look at these! They are perfect for the party decoration and who doesn't like a good ol’candy, right? Just put them in bowl and serve! Shop it on Etsy ($29.99)
2) Cupcake Walkers
Ok, maybe you love to bake, in which case you can come up with some cool cupcake zombie decor from scratch. Our plan (remember, we want SUPER easy) is to buy red velvet cupcakes at the corner shop and add these zombie toppers to them. Shop it on Etsy ($2.95 for 3).
3) The Ultimate Zombie Table Set Up
Ok, this is beyond a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Unfortunately we could not find who came up with this idea -- but we just think it’s perfect for us. Why? Well, because it’s so easy to set-up and doesn’t require any “special-effects” cooking degree ;).
It’s the usual food we’d serve in a gathering, like spicy chicken wings (we’ve got a nice recipe for that in case you like cooking), meatballs (also have a recipe for this), spicy shrimp (yep, we’ve got a recipe for that too), baby ribs (ok, yess.. Recipe here), sausage intestines (yikes!), a meatball head (LOL), etc.
But HOW COOL does this look? And kinda scary (which is the entire point). If you do this, will you please post a pic on Insta and tag us @Tabanero? We’d love to see it!
Oh, you probably need to buy the zombie hands -- we found this one on Amazon for $19.88. And we’re sure you’ve got some old jeans and shirts in that closet waiting to be splashed with ketchup!
4) Add Some Spicy Flavor To It!
Ok, this is super easy too and will give your guests a nice kick of heat and flavor to their food! We like to say around here, “the all-natural meets the unnatural” - get it? Plus, who doesn't think this is the best thing ever? We all love Hot Sauce with zombies and blood splashes all over the bottle.
Since this is our “baby”, we are giving you a special promo code so that you can save a few bucks. Simply use code: ZOMBIEPARTY at checkout and get 10% off all Walking Dead Tabañero products (hot sauce and bloody mary mix!).
P.S. If you want to gift these “hot zombies” to your friends or would like to stock up for a while, we are giving 20% off when you spend $30 or more -- here’s the code for that: ZOMBIEPARTY20
5) Bloodiest Mary Drink Recipe
Well, the easiest option is to serve it just as it comes. Our argument is that Bloody Mary’s are already “bloody” so they are ready for The Walking Dead party no matter what! Try our super easy recipe below!
- 3 oz. vodka (Or Tequila for Bloody Maria)
- 1 cup of Tabañero’s Bloodiest Mary Mix
- 1 juiced lemon
- 1 dash of Worcestershire sauce
- Pinch of celery salt
- Pinch of black pepper
- 1 celery stick for garnish
- 2 limes
- 1 cup of green olives
- Combine vodka, Tabañero’s Bloodiest Mary Mix, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, and pepper in drink shaker.
- Shake well and pour over ice. Garnish with celery stick, lime wedges and olives.

And there you go fellow The Walking Dead Fans! We hope these easy ideas will help you out, and we’d LOOOOOVEEEEE to see pics of what you create if you get inspired! Remember to share them on Instagram and tag @Tabañero and we may feature them on our channels as well!
