Black, white and gold are super trendy colours this year, so why not incorporate it into your Halloween decor?! Follow the steps below to throw a glamorous Halloween dessert party for all your ghoul-friends this season!
Since your black, white and gold colour palette has already been chosen, you are able to focus on the decor! Though the colours are set, have fun with mixing patterns and combinations, from stripes to polka dots to prints. Look for a tablecloth that matches, but does not detract too much from the decorations.
For your backdrop, consider utilising signs, frames and/or artwork that coordinate with your theme! To avoid damaging your walls, use non-permanent hanging strips that will support the weight, but can easily be removed once the party is over.
Stacked food and cake stands can serve your goodies, but can also double as vessels for decorations, such as these black, white and gold miniature pumpkins! Look for pumpkins in a variety of sizes to utilise as embellishments for your table and stack them up for added dimension.
Fun and functional plates can also double as decoration! Find plates in the coordinating colour palette for guests to utilise and display them with the assistance of easels and stands to incorporate them into your presentation.
Consider including masks and/or photo props into your display that will add to the overall design, but will also provide an additional activity for your guests! Create a photo booth to allow your ghoul-friends to have fun while creating memories of the event!
For your dessert selection, create ghoulishly girly items, starting with cupcakes! Bake your cupcakes in gold liners and add black wrappers to make a fancy presentation. For the cupcake toppers, make chocolate skulls with a skull mould, spray them with gold colour mist and finish them off with icing bows!
Consider showing a fun Halloween movie during your get-together and serve your guests popcorn in fancy boxes! Add some chocolate drizzle to your popcorn for that perfect combination of salty and sweet and embellish the boxes with added details.
Find black and white food and dessert that will match back to your tablescape, such as these black and white chocolate-covered cookies with a spider design achieved with a chocolate cookie mould! Find stands that will coordinate with your decor and add to your Halloween theme.
Serve sweets and treats in a variety of containers, such as coffin boxes and fun cartons. Adorn the boxes with tags, stickers and clips, along with additional embellishments, such as glitter spiders! Fill the boxes with miniature baked goods or a variety of seasonal candies.
Drinks are super important for any ghoulish celebration! Whether you are serving alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks, make them extra festive with fun decorations, such as these sweet eyeball skewers! Add dry ice to make it extra spooky, but make sure not to touch it with your bare hands and allow it to dissolve completely prior to drinking!
Now you're ready to welcome your ghoul-friends to your glam Halloween party to do, what else but have fun!!!
