This afternoon we had our Halloween party, which was so much fun. I just love Halloween!
Yesterday I showed you how my table was set for Halloween and today I am sharing with you how my dessert table looked...
I had originally laid my dessert table with cream and black lace tablecloths but I didn't like how it looked. Then I remembered the wooden steps I had in the garage...
When my little sister got married last year we created a candy table with jars and jars of sweets. Her father in law who is great at woodwork made the steps to my design so that the jars could be tiered for a really eye catching yet practical display. My sister kindly gave me the steps knowing that one day they would come in useful again, well they were perfect for my Halloween dessert table.
I covered the steps in a spider web lace table cloth that I bought in Wilkinsons for a couple of pounds. I stuck it down using double sided tape, so that it was nice and secure.
I placed my Haunted cookie house on the top step, flanked by some black candy apples on mini cake stands. I filled my cake stand and glass cloches with skull lollipops and bone printed chocolates. I decorated shot glasses with lace tape, filled them with cream M&M's and stuck black & white swirl lollipops in them. In front of the shot glasses I placed mini glass jars of passion fruit panna cotta. For added sparkle I added some glittered bones and sheets of silver glitter card.
On the lower step I filled my white cake stand threaded with black lace ribbon with Gluten free caramel and apple cheesecakes. I laid my rectangle platter with chocolate houses that I filled with chocolate mousse and biscuit crumb. A last minute charity shop find of a small black babell cake stand that only cost a pound was filled with white chocolate dipped chocolate bone biscuits.
I hung spider chandeliers from the ceiling for added drama.
I will of course be sharing the gluten free recipes over the next few days but until then have a fab weekend! x
