Shrek-themed parties break all the rules and etiquette about eating and foods. Shrek parties allow guests to have fun and eat like ogres without worrying about manners. Food can be weird, wacky and wonderful and it celebrates the gross, the gooey and the green. Most of all, a Shrek party should encourage having fun with food whether it's an appetizer, main dish or dessert.

Swamp Slime

When guests arrive at the swamp, a fresh batch of swamp slime should be waiting for them. The night before the big Shrek party, prepare some green lime Jell-O and pineapple chunks. Follow the direction on the Jell-O package for preparation, and then add canned chunks of pineapple. Divide up your swamp slime into individual cups or refrigerate it in one large bowl. When guests arrive, serve the slime.

Mean Green Pizza

Pizza is a staple party food. It’s cheap, it’s tasty and it’s easy to make. Mean green pizza is exactly the type of pizza that Shrek would love to chow down on. When mixing dough, add a few drops of green food coloring. This will make the crust a wicked green color. To add a little extra pizzazz, stretch the dough into different shapes. Add sauce and cheese and then a couple more drops of food coloring. After the pizza is out of the oven, guests will love its green, cheesy goodness.

Worms in the Dirt

Dessert doesn’t have to be the conventional cake. Shrek would choose a cup of dirt and worms. To make the dirt, crush a batch of Oreo cookies inside a plastic zipper bag. Make a bowl of chocolate pudding, add a bag of gummy worms and then sprinkle the “dirt” Oreos over the top. Chill the wormy dessert in the fridge and then let everyone enjoy some chocolaty, gummy treats.
