Halloween Dessert and Party Tables

Today I wanted to share some new Halloween party photos I've been working on to showcase the HALLOWEEN PRINTABLES collection I released this season (on sale now for only $9.00!). This set is so much fun for little ones with bright colors and bold graphics -- makes me wish I was little again! Enjoy the photos - details to come at the end of the post.

Halloween is such a fun time of year, but can sometimes be a bit scary for the little ones. WIth that in mind, I wanted to design a whimisical, child-like Halloween party with lots of cute characters and bright colors sure to "thrill" and not scare our little ones away. 

The children were overjoyed to see all of the sweets and goodies at the party table including gumballs and candies, a homemade two-tiered chocolate cake and gorgeous decorated cookies that I found at HomeGoods. My personal favorites were the cookies with fondant toppers made by Brittany at Edible Details. The lady is amazing and perfectly coordinated her creations with the Halloween characters from Amanda's Parties To Go Halloween printable set.

I think the children loved the OREO GHOST POPS most which I made myself using a mold from Spinning Leaf and then attached to wooden skewers and added some ghostly embellishments of cheesecloth and white tissue paper. The candy kabobs were a hit, too, and so easily made using some ghost Peeps, peach gummy rings, Oreos and a cute little candy corn sucker I found at Michaels.

The little stickers for the Hershey's Kisses are actually a FREE DOWNLOAD if you want to grab them to make some quick Halloween treats. I placed them in a witches'  cauldron and added some Dollar Tree hands to make things a little more fun for the kids. And the chocolate cakes with the non-pareils are a quick little project that I've got a tutorial for HERE.

With a vibrant orange polka dot fabric for the backdrop and some adorable ghosts I found at TJ Maxx, the party table was sure to please the littlest of party guests. The garland on the table front was created using the Halloween printable logos and matting them with some colorful gathered crepe paper. The pieces were then hot glued to black tissue fringe from Sweet Shop LuLu.

I love crepe paper because it's readily available, inexpensive and comes in a wonderful array of colors. I used it to cover plain cardboard boxes for table displays  and to create the fun googley-eyed snack cups, too. Then I carried both the googley-eye idea and the crepe paper to other tables by creating a fun garland to use as a backdrop and table skirt.

After loading up on sweets, the kids (and parents!) were ready to head outside for some outdoor fun. I made a simple Pin the Tail on the Pumpkin game using foam core board, orange and green crepe paper and some printable cut outs for the mouth and nose pieces. Reagan and Jacob especially loved the photo props as you can see from the pictures!

The children's adorable appliqued shirts were made by Little One Boutique and couldn't have been cuter for the party. The Frankenstein shirt was a top-seller already (how lucky was I that it matched my printables!). Sweet Dawn then  specially made Reagan's ghost shirt to match the ghost from the printables collection.

To complete the Halloween party fun, each guest was offered a choice of take-home gifts from the party favor table including bags of eyeball chocolates or a favor "on a stick" which was a small box of candy attached to a wooden skewer with crepe paper ruffles.
