Halloween is (basically) here! Are you going to any Halloween parties this week? Perhaps throwing your OWN? Today we have a cute MONSTER’S BALL sent in by Little Pickle Photography & Design! I absolutely adore the Witch Hat Cupcakes made with sugar cones. See them above? LOVE! And the Brain Cake? Oh my word, you have to check it out. It’s super spooky! Jessica Bender of Little Pickle said, “This Halloween party was inspired by my children; The Wicked Witch of the West, and Frankenstein. They wanted to throw a party at their castle, for their spooky friends!”
How cute are the witch broomstick’s with donuts on them (see below)?! This is a great presentation idea. I also love how she used old books as stands for treats too. Clever!
Jessica shared: “The decor was inspired by a monster’s castle, and Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory. There table is encased in heavy castle stones, and topped with witch hat steeples. Framed pictures of lovely castles hang on the walls, which are covered in bats of course. Colourful little pumpkins sit atop tiny pedestals, because even monsters like sparkly things! You will find magic potions, slimy bugs, a laboratory scale, and of course spooky black feathered birds watching over top.”
“Some of the treats paid homage to the Wicked Witch: broomstick kebabs, cupcakes, cake pops. While others paid tribute to Frankenstein’s monster: forest berries, pudding cups, rice krispy treats, and a yummy brain cake. The green veggies played up the lovely green hue of both ghoul’s skin!”
“The drink table held a lime punch, with festively ribboned jars. Apothecary jars held some of the trappings of a true mad scientist’s laboratory; witches whiskers, monkey bones, nuts & bolts, and a monster munch popcorn mix. Little monster friends were sent home with broomstick bags, filled with cut finger bubbles, scary stickers, and a yummy lollipop.”
Guests danced to a Halloween mix, and played pin the hat on the witch when they weren’t noshing on the spooky food and drinks. How cute? I absolutely adore the witch treats (and the BRAIN cake). It is hard to pick my favorite detail from this Monster’s Ball. What’s your favorite part?
