Well, you gotta have lotsa cheese, because the man in the moon is made of cheese, of course!

For a full star-gazing menu, here are some really cool zodiac-inspired ideas: http://www.rachaelraymag.com/easy-party-ideas/Great-Get-Togethers/outdoor-party-menus/horoscope-themed-party

The obvious would be star, moon and sun-shaped sugar cookies.

Or how about a big-dipper-inspired chocolate dipped biscotti?

Half inch squares of medium rare beef (rib eye or prime rib is nice), same size of Brie or Camembert, and same size piece of pitted prune. Put one of each (3 pieces) on a small skewer . Amazing how these three tastes work together.
