Halloween is my second favorite holiday! Now that we are finally settled in our new house I HAD to throw a little party! This past weekend, we hosted our first annual Eat. Drink. & Be Scary Halloween inspired party.
Here is a (not so good)picture of our party invitation. The invitation was made by Emily of Sweetly Scrapped. I love Emily and her vintage chic creations. I am a repeat customer of Emily's. I use her for invitations and the like every chance I get.
This is our dessert table. I had fun styling this table. I decided to keep it classic and simple. I choose the traditional Halloween color palette of orange and black.
The bats on the "bat tree" were made four years ago and are inspired by the one and only, Martha Stewart. I freshened them up by creating a black modge podge vase for them to be displayed. Target was a huge help and inspiration to this years' dessert table. I found a lot of inexpensive items there. The kitties, the pumpkins and the popcorn boxes are from the "dollar section" at Target.The cake stand, the cake pop and lollipop stands and the spider cupcake holders are also from Target. The cupcake stand is from JoAnn's Fabric. I designed the black doily banner. The remaining plates are from places unknown...I've had them forever. : )
I decided to make most of the goodies this year. I made brownie push up pops with the new Cool Whip Frosting, which I love so much. I also made a carrot cake and used the Cool Whip Cream Cheese Frosting for the carrot cake. I made additional brownie bites, banana pecan bites and Devil's Food Cake cupcakes.
The upside down witches in the cauldrons were inspired by Kara's Party Ideas. I purchased the witches cauldrons from Kara's Party Ideas the Shop. *See Kara's shop andvamazing Halloween party ideas here.
These adorable cookies were made by a friend who just started baking these sweet, tasty treats. Yes. She is this good and is only a beginner!!
