Start your party with these creepy eyeballs: pimiento-stuffed olives popping out of bacon-wrapped prunes. It's a weird but wonderful combination. For a glamorously spooky effect, garnish the plate with blood red rose petals.

Remove pimientos from green olives; set aside.
Using fingers, gently widen openings in prunes. Push 1 olive inside each, pulling prune around olive gently to enclose but leaving hole in olive exposed.
Cut bacon in half crosswise. Wrap 1 slice around each prune; secure with toothpick. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.)
Place prunes on greased rimmed baking sheet. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until bacon is crisp, about 20 minutes. Stuff pimientos back into olives. Serve pimiento side up.
