Halloween Party Dessert Table

Sunday, October 31, 2010

For our family's 1st Annual Halloween Party, I wanted to create a fun family-friendly event for kids of all ages and where I started was creating a color theme for our party. I used black, green, purple and orange as my inspiration in my decor and my dessert table. For decor, I got a lot of inspiration from this year's Martha Stewart Halloween Magazine which has so many great ideas. For starters I purchased several of her pre-made kits as Jo-Ann fabrics including her spider and bat collections. Then I used my bat cookie cutter to create foam cut-out bats using my color scheme and created a bat cave on a wall in our family room.
For our dessert table, I used a beautiful purple spider web print as our tablecloth and a orange fabric as the covering of my backdrop. For our treats, I create my famous (Funfetti) cake pops, candy-coated marshmallow pops, sugar cookies on a stick, coffin-shaped brownies, candy-coated pretzel sticks, chocolate cupcakes with homemade purple buttercream frosting. For the candy aspect of our table, I used black, orange, purple and green sixlets, lollipops, grape sours, grape gummy bears, green and orange licorice, gummy horrors, candy corn, peanut butter cups (orange and black wrappers) and the very popular sour pumpkins. For our drink of choice, we created our "Bat's Brew," which was 7-Up with black food coloring in milk jugs.

Testimonial from Bride and Groom

We decided to hire a wedding planner about a month or two away from our big day so that we wouldn't have to worry about coordinating with all the vendors for our big day. We decided to hire Lori. She was very responsive and always emailed us back very quickly. She also was very pro-active and took charge of getting in contact with our vendors to make sure we were all on the same page before our big day. On the day of the wedding she had brought her staff who helped set up, were very professional, and along with Lori made sure everything ran smoothly. We even forgot the garter midway through the reception, and one of her assistants drove to our house right away to get it! Overall we were very satisfied with the service and attentiveness we received for the price we paid.

You are amazing, kind, patient, have the best ideas, are the best candy buffet creator ever, etc. There is no way we could have made it through the planning and wedding without you! I am forever...grateful!

We knew we'd met a wonderful person the first time we met you! As we walked away Bran said to me, "hiring Lori was the best decision we've ever made!" We still feel that way!

Thank you!

Testimonial from Parents of the Bride

Simply thanking you seems so little after all that you have done for Katie and Brandon these past months. The wedding and reception were glorious and with your helping, organizing, shaping and guiding us on the wedding day with your most kind husband made everything fabulous. I gazed at what you accomplished in a short window of time, filled with such pride, was amazing. We would never have survived without you. Everyone loved the candy table.
Our gratitude forever,
Jennifer and John Robertson, parents of the bride
