Pink-O-Ween Party: Benefiting the Susan G. Komen Foundation
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.
A big thank you to Amy Atlas for featuring this Pinkoween Party! You can see the feature here.
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.

Another love! I posted this one on my blog after seeing it on Amy Atlas’s site, before I had checked out your site. You are a genius.
Would you mind sharing where you found the silver spiders on the cupcakes?
I absolutely *love* this whole theme. Combining Halloween and breast cancer awareness is such a great way to get the word out about this important cause. I’m not usually a big Halloween person but the pink and silver in this really transform it from creepy and gloomy to fabulously fun. Thanks for sharing!!
You’ve done a fabulous job with this theme. You’ve taken the typical orange and black thats always been associated with Halloween and helped us to remember and not forget that this month is also about Breast Cancer Awareness. What a great idea! This is very creative and SUPER FAB!!!
LOVE IT ALL Courtney! And what a beautiful way to support breast cancer! xo
This is outstanding! I am not a fan of orange and black and so I LOVE the pink twist on Halloween! What a great job you did!
This is the most original theme I’ve seen for Halloween. I love the pink and black combo. Your dessert table is absolutely fabulous! How did you do the silver spiders? Do tell! I love them!!
Thank you so much Kate! So the silver spiders, PIER 1!! Don’t even have to do a thing :) Except take them off before you eat the cupcake ;)
Too cute. Super creative.
SO CUTE! Where did you get the paper decor from? The pinkoween and little details like that?
What a great idea. I am always so amazed by all the creativity. Just Love This!
Fabulous sums it up ;)!
followed your link here from blogfrog – sitting here with my jaw open to my desk at the CUTENESS!!!! Can hardly stand it! Amazing amazing amazing – all of it. Just had to tell you that I think I want to be you when I grow up! Off to get more lost in the rest of your amazing blog now…
Pink-oween! How fun. Love it.
Sorry to say but disco dust is made of finely ground plastic and therefore NOT EDIBLE, merely non-toxic. It should never be sprinkled on any foods, only decorations that will be removed before eating. If someone with certain stomach conditions were given a disco dusted cupcake without being informed that’s what was on it, it could lead to a serious infection. Please do some research before you suggest something to your readers. Even the site you linked to clearly states it is not a food item. There are many edible glitter alternatives out there, but it is up to bakers to read labels carefully and thoroughly.
I have NEVER seen anything this creative before. I would love to present this item at our local center and would like to have permission to use some of your ideas. Also, where did you purchase your items?
Love all the great ideas, where did you find the black tablecloth with the webs and pink spiders?
Kim, I believe I bought it at Homegoods but it was years ago. This post is an old one. Here is a similar tablecloth though! https://amzn.to/2Sa2v3a
