A Zombie Apocalypse Dessert Table

Thought I'd share a few things I put together over the Halloween season.  It's a little unorthodox I'll admit.  It absolutely reeks of nerdiness that's for sure.  This dessert table's inspiration was taken from zombie video games like Resident Evil and Left 4 Dead and movies like Zombieland and Night of The Living Dead to the latest season of Walking Dead.   The next few photos are a little bloody.  Hope you're not too faint of heart!
These medicine cabinets were from IKEA.  The herbs sitting inside are an homage to herbs from the video game Resident Evil (RE).  According to RE, each color heals you from certain ailments.  For example, the green herbs restore health.  Sitting inside these cabinets are delicious (low alcohol!) jello shots.
If you play Left 4 Dead, you'll find these 'pills' in certain areas around the game.  The pills I got for this party are York Peppermint Patty Pieces.  They worked beautifully for this.  Read the pill bottle.  It's not your average pill bottle.
I just needed another reason to coordinate water bottles with this party.  This dessert table IS a first aid station after all.
Made sure to include a few screen shots from the Resident Evil game to give guests a hint about the video game reference.
Brraiiinnnsss.... (I picked these gummy ones up from Target).  We made the blood using corn syrup and red dye.
