Halloween Dessert Table


Today I am so excited to feature this  HALLOWEEN DESSERT TABLE submitted by Marisol Figueroa of Modishly Delish! Seriously, such a cute halloween party. The milk ghost bottles...oh MY. LOVE THEM. Everything is just beautiful, Marisol. You are so talented!

Here is what Marisol said about the party- Boo! So, Halloween is right around the corner and it is a very special holiday in my house as it is my husbands birthday. This year he will be 31 on the 31st! For this table I designed a ”Spooky Chic” Halloween Printable Collection that is now available for purchase in my Etsy store. The design incorporates ghosts, bats and a chevron print using only the colors black, white and gray.  I went with this monochromatic color scheme so that those who decided to purchase my printable collection would be able to coordinate it with other colors of their choice. So for example if you wanted a hot pink Halloween party or you wanted to use the color purple, you would not be limited whatsoever! For this design I went with a chartreuse and teal color scheme to use as backing on my paper goods. For the desserts I mainly went with orange. Are you currently planning your Halloween festivities? It’s never too early to start, as I always say! Stores tend to sell out fast! 

For the table I made a table linen out of burlap. I also made a ruffled table runner out of plain black cotton fabric. I found the branch in the backyard, spray painted it black. I bought a pack of faux orange leaves and also spray painted them black (leaving some orange visible), then hot glued them onto the branch. The coffins were also painted black and filled with moss, then I layed the skeleton inside.
My mom made the white meringue ghosts and we hung them from the branch using pieces of the dead moss, she did a great job!
Don’t you just love my milk ghosts? I really wanted to do something different to incorporate the beverage, something I hadn’t seen before. So during my thinking I was literally staring at my Zephyrhills Aquapod water bottle, lightbulb! I ripped the bottle wrap and cap plastic and voila, the shape of a ghost somewhat. I cut out pieces of  black cardstock to make the eyes and mouth, filled them with milk and displayed a black and white straw! Adorable huh? 
 My new favorite tool is the wave punch I bought at Joann’s recently to make the backing of the cupcake toppers. I thought it was a better alternative to the scalloped and plain circle punch. Love it!
 Behind the mousse cups you can kind of see the bat shaped grilled cheese sandwiches. I used a bat shaped cookie cutter for those and topped them with my printable food flag.
 I wanted the favor tags in my Halloween Printable collection to be different. Using the ghost motif I designed I enlarged the image and added “thank you” and cut them out. They do take a little more time but love the way they look with the chartreuse ribbon and mini favor bag!"
