Halloween Dessert Table
Today we’re telling you our deepest darkest secrets for creating this chocolate buffet for an elegantly creepy Halloween party. Ours was geared toward the adult crowd, but you could certainly make it a family affair.
Deep Dark Halloween Dessert Table secret #1:
Choose a color palette of two to three colors. We used the Autumn Nights collection of Dessert Skirtz cupcake wrappers as our inspiration. We kept the colors consistent with black, ivory, and a bit of olive green.
Deep Dark Halloween Dessert Table secret #2:
Create heights and levels on the table, taking care to balance the look. The items don’t need to be the same, but notice the wire bird cage on the left is balanced with the double basket of pine cones on the right.
Deep Dark Halloween Dessert Table secret #3:
No need to go out and spend a fortune on cake plates and platters. We used a mix of dinner plates, upside down vases, and serving platters, all in ivory.
Deep Dark Halloween Dessert Table secret #4:
Don’t underestimate the power of candlelight. We used a large lantern in the center of our table with a candle to cast creepy shadows against the wall. We also placed a candle inside the birdcage.
Deep Dark Halloween Dessert Table secret #5:
Find items with texture and interesting shapes to add personality to your Halloween desert table. The texture on the ivory vases that we flipped over to create our cupcake platters mimics the tone-on-tone pattern in the olive fabric.
Dark swirls from the metal elements are found in several places on our Halloween dessert table for a cohesive, coordinated look. The metal scroll designs play off the trees in the cupcake wrappers.
