Help with Toddler Halloween Party?

We are having a "Not-so-Scary Halloween Party" for DD and her friends, all around 2 1/2 yo, maybe one or two older siblings. What do you think of this party spread?

-Apple smiles with marshmallow "teeth"
-"Finger" shortbread cookies with almond sliver "nails"
-Jello "Jaws" cups with gummy sharks in blue "water"
-Halloween Popcorn balls with candy corn, white chocolate, and sprinkles
-Make-your-own Monster Mix (goldfish, cheddar bunnies, chex, cheerios, etc. with baggies for mixing)
-Shrunken Apple "Heads" in cider
-Various juices with "Witches Brew," "Alien Slime," etc. labels
-Normal foods: veggie tray with dip, cheese tray with crackers (clever naming or display ideas for these?)

Anything you think won't go over well with toddlers? Too many choices or too few? Suggestions and criticism welcome!

if they're anything like my 2yo, they will not notice any embellishments
if they're like my friend's 2.5yo, they will notice and will love it.

sounds like a good spread
definitely not too few, you could cut back if you ran out of prep time, but as long as they're things you'll eat up after the party, I wouldn't worry about overpreparing.
