Vintage-style Halloween Dessert Table

Vanilla cupcakes with old-fashioned vanilla buttercream
Halloween is just around the corner and I am already in Halloween mode!

I'd like to share my Vintage-style Halloween Dessert Table with you to help get you into the spirit.

My vision for this party suite was to create a Vintage-style Halloween Dessert Table and to convey the message of Halloween using only typography. I like the old-world feel, it
reminds me of 'old-west catalogues', with a little Steam Punk thrown in. I also like the monochrome palette and the airy lightness of the table.

I'm happy with the end result and I hope you like it too.

This DIY Party Printable Suite is available now in my Etsy shop and includes the cupcake toppers, bunting, party bag toppers, candy bar wrappers, party sign, straw and treat tags. Just $6! Download, print and create you own Vintage-style Halloween Dessert Table.


Vintage-style Halloween Dessert Table

Old fashioned Toffee Apples and silver buckets – "mini graves" filled with chocolate mousse, with crumbled chocolate Oreos (to look like dirt), and topped with a "Honey Jumbles" headstone, with piped "RIP" in royal icing – you'll be "six feet under" too.

Yellow or orange pumpkins are not in season in Australia at the moment. So I have used spray-paint for decoration on the pumpkins.

Halloween Cocktails – vodka & orange poured over a
licorice jelly (Jello-O) base

Printable candy bar wrappers
Printable party bag toppers

Rainbow Bunting 4th Birthday Party

I can't tell you how excited I am that this Dessert Table has been featured on Amy Atlas' Sweet Designs Blog as a guest feature. Thank you so much to Amy and staff for featuring my little party!

I created and designed this dessert table and set of "Rainbow Bunting" DIY Party Printables for my daughter, Georgia's 4th birthday party which was held at our home two weeks ago.

The inspiration came from Georgia herself who loves all things rainbow, and me wanting to make a layered rainbow birthday cake.

Georgia had a lovely time, and although we had to move the whole table after the initial set up due to the prospect of rain and windy weather, the party was a great success and I was very happy with the outcome.

The guests were entertained with a rainbow colouring-in station, pinata and pass-the-pinwheel, a variation on pass-the-parcel. They also had a great time playing on Georgia's new swing set which she received for her birthday.

This DIY Party Printable set is now available in my Etsy shop. Just download, print & create!

I hope you enjoy this party which I had so much fun dreaming up!

It all starts with the personalised invitation ...
