Pink-O-Ween: Benefiting the Susan G. Komen Foundation
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I wanted to share Team Pinkoween with you not only because my father’s mother is a survivor but also for the thousands of women affected daily by breast cancer. I was excited to design a pink, “glammed out” Halloween this year and thrilled to team up with Anders Ruff Custom Designs for the party printables. Purchase yours and a portion of each sale will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. You can also donate on our Team Pinkoween site here. Even $1 is so appreciated!

Disco Dust = AMAZING! There really are no better words to describe this glittery, edible topping. Containing only non-toxic ingredients, it is the perfect topping for a sparkly treat. Sweet! Baking & Candy Making Supply is my go-to for all baking supplies including disco dust. Similar to food coloring, it is edible, though you don’t really want to eat a spoonful of it – you are safe to sprinkle it atop cupcakes or cookies though! I used American Silver. I used a clean, small brush to tap it onto my cupcakes. I loved it so much I’m going to be buying up every color soon, it’s just too much fun.
Glam was a central focus of the design for Pinkoween. These silver candles actually came from Hobby Lobby in their holiday decor (yes, they already have Christmas and winter decor out!). I jazzed them up with a simple ribbon cuff and rhinestone adornment. You will likely see these cuties again soon – working on my favorite dessert table design yet, and they will be incorporated! The pink popcorn boxes actually came from Wal-Mart of all places. I bought them last summer not knowing how I would use them (this is dangerous, you will run out of room in your house if you get into this habit, I speak from experience).
The spider cage has to be one of my favorite finds of the year. Found for just $1 at Michaels (they’re in stock now, run to your local Michaels!). They come in various shapes and colors, they are perfect for wedding or party decor. I spray painted this one black and topped with a silver glitter spray for a rusty, antique look.
