In addition to the cool black lace backdrop, the individual crème brûlées served in chocolate cups, and the ridiculously gorgeous cake, one of my favorite things about this table is how stylish and adult-friendly it feels. (P.S. – The black lace backdrop is a great idea for lingerie-themed bridal showers & bachelorettes too!)
“For this shoot, we wanted to create something that didn’t necessarily scream Halloween but had a subtle creepiness to it. We drew inspiration from the Victorian era and tapped into our inner haunted mansion.
After handcrafting our black lace backdrop and dessert stands, we decided on desserts for the more mature palette and made creme brulee in chocolate dishes, tiramisu, lavender ginger cookies, decorated lemon sugar cookies, monster-tini’s and an assortment of candy take away treats.
The two-tiered cake was made by Rebecca Lehman of Heavenscent Cakes and became a focal point for the Sweet Station. We loved the intricate detailing and the perfect color match!
We designed and created all of the paper goods as part of the overall look of this station. (Our custom dessert stations come with many of these unique items that we create specifically for the event.)
The Victorian Halloween themed favor boxes, mini treat cups, candy bar wrappers, and flavor tags were a lot of fun to make! Fabulous scrapbook paper, brads, and decorative items help complete the look…
We even adorned the center of our candy bar wrappers with a sticker from the Martha Stewart Halloween collection. The coffin candy cases are from her collection as well and can be found in-store at Michaels.
Beware, we caught a ghost sneaking treats in one of the photos! Can you spot him?
