Tis the season to be spooky y’all! I thought it would be fun to have a Spooktacular Cookie party with the kids in our family and it was a huge hit! We had a ton of fun making the food and decorating for the event, I hope you get some cute ideas for your home.
For decor I used my furry tablerunner and added my spooky jack-a-lanterns and spiders.
To complete the look, we used a variety of glass jars and filled them with candy to fill in the spaces.
To add to our chairs, I added little ghostly figures to each of them.
I scattered the spiders and doyles around the table.
I used cute candy corn dessert plates for display.
If you have a Chandelier don’t forget to decorate it! I used spider webs, black boas and LED purple micro lights to give the room a dramatic impression.
For candy I found cute little Halloween containers and for the sprinkles I found these bottles that looked like potion and put the sprinkles in each of them.
Finding the perfect sugar cookie recipe can be hard but I have to say, we found a hit! I wanted to find one that was sweet but not too sugary, this one was perfect! — Click Here—
Save the yourself the headache and make the cookies a day before the party! They will still be fresh!
Being that this party was for children under 5, I wanted the decorating to be as controlled as possible- if that’s even such a thing. 🙂 I went to my local craft store and picked up cake boards. Each child had their own cake board and cookies. This made the process easy for clean up and provided a way for them to take home their cookies by simply added clingwrap.
For toppings, I used paint trays and set them at each child’s station.
For the food table, I used a iridescent pumpkin and fresh blush roses. I then added spiders to the top to create a spooky look and added a black tinsle cat to complete the look.
During the event, I also served Mummy pizza, which was a big hit with the kids. I simply used Pillsbury pizza dough, added marinara sauce and placed strips of mozzarella cheese on top. When the pizzas were done baking, I added the spooky eyeballs.
For a healthy snack, I put out fresh pumpkin cuties (which were small mandarins that I peeled), and banana ghosts. Click here for the recipe.
For favors we made popcorn hands. Put candycorn at the bottom at each finger (to make the fingernails), add popcorn, tie off the glove with cute ribbon and add a spider to the ring finger! That’s it!
Lastly, for all the parents we had a special bloody champagne cocktail. I picked up brut rose and added red food coloring to give the drink an extra bloody look. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed our Spooktacular event!
Until next time,
