Red Themed Parties

Red is a colour of speed, danger and excitement.

Red Costumes

Red costumes include devils, Little Red Riding Hood, Santa, femme fatales, flamenco dancers, racing drivers, and royalty. It is also associated with love and passion.

Red food ideas

  • For red fruit salad, chop up a selection of red fruit and mix in a bowl with a bit of fruit juice to prevent browning. Red fruits include strawberries, watermelon, red apples, cherries, plums, raspberries, blood oranges, pomegranate seeds, and red grapes.
  • Red jelly: buy a packet of jelly crystals, or for a fruitier version use red fruit juice (try blood orange juice) and unflavoured gelatin — the packet usually has instructions.
  • Red pasta: some supermarkets sell red coloured pasta containing tomato or carrot.  Serve with a tomato-based pasta sauce.
  • Rhubarb is a versatile red vegetable that makes nice desserts like rhubarb pie or rhubarb crumble.
  • Tomato soup and tomato ketchup are red.
  • Red drinks include blood orange juice, tomato juice, grape juice, and red tea (rooibos). Red alcoholic drinks include red wine, rosé wines, sangria, crème de cassis (mixed with white wine to make an aperitif called kir).
