A Pretty Wicked Halloween

I just wanted to share with you a quick dessert table that I put together for Halloween! It can seem like a daunting task to come up with some ideas to make a dessert table, but it’s not so bad. You don’t have to have matching sets of anything and can feel free to use scraps and tidbits that you have around the house to pull of something pretty wicked!

The heroes in this story are Dollar Tree and Target…seriously, most of the stuff on this table cost $1 or less.

The menu consisted of:

  • Poisoned Apples (apples)
  • Corrupted Cake Pops (cake balls in chocolate)
  • Skulls and Cobweb Cupcakes (wedding cake flavored cupcakes with vanilla icing)
  • Vampire’s Elixir and a Sweet Stake Through the Heart (red drink of choice and chocolate hearts on candy a candy apple stick)

The decor came from the $ section at Target and Dollar tree. I got the spider web from Zulily a while back. The banner was made by making a pennant in Publisher and then cutting that out and putting purple chevron paper behind it for a little color. It was connected and strung with simple purple ribbon. The snakes were purchased at Dollar Tree and spray painted silver. The sparkly spiders came from the holiday section at Kroger and came out to be about 33 cents each. It drives my husband nuts, but I look for deals everywhere we go! He doesn’t even try to keep up with me anymore. If I ever wander off, he knows where to find me… The skull was at the Dollar Tree…I just spray painted it, added some jewels I had laying around and voila! Blinged out bones!

For the other elements, florals etc., it was stuff I had laying around the house; the big dahlia was from our wedding stash from 2 years ago; I originally purchased it from Afloral and they have some beautiful selections for every occasion.

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
