Pink-O-Ween! Guest Dessert Feature

Scroll down for fun Halloween news from us!

It’s hard to believe, but Halloween is around the corner already.  We’ve been getting some cute Halloween submissions and I love this glammed up PINK Halloween dessert table from Courtney of Pizzazzerie. I’m always a believer of surprising your guests with an unexpected color palette.  I think this is especially fun for holidays when your guests will expect to see the traditional color palette.  Courtney added a lot of pizzazz and glam with lots of glitter and sequins.  I love the sparkly cobweb linen with all those glittery spiders, the decorated reeses cups {my fave dessert ever!}, the pink-o-ween potion, bejeweled candles, and the cute signage from Anders Ruff.

A Few Sweet Styling Tips & Tricks:

(1) Be careful when you are using apothecary jars with small openings. I find those types of vessels work best for small candy with a long scoop.  They look great and work for shoots like this, but they are not always practical for real parties.

(2) Make sure any glitter/sparkles on food are edible.  Courtney used edible glitter from here.

(3) Glam up seasonal items that you can find in craft stores.  Courtney spray painted a birdcage that she found from Michaels for just $1!

Fantastic job, Courtney!

PS – Speaking of unexpected color palettes and Halloween, we’ll be launching something next week that is fun and exciting for Halloween.  I can’t wait to share with you!
