Hi everyone, it’s Jessica from Pen N’ Paperflowers, here to share with you a Toil & Trouble witch-themed table I designed for Halloween!  You won’t find many “treats” on this festive table…it’s all “tricked” out with salty snacks to balance out the sugary sweets this holiday season ushers in.

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Simple grab-and-go salty snacks – no sweets.
– Apothecary jars labeled with wickedly-clever concoctions & terrifying tinctures (Download the FREE printables)
– Vintage wire whisk, antique book and candelabra used for decor accents
– DIY Tissue Paper Water Bottle Wraps (see tutorial here)
– Bewitching Black Magic DIY Book Cover (tutorial here)

Witch themed Halloween table filled with Salty Snacks



This snack table was designed to provide a festive salty grab-and-go snack station for Halloween.  The snacks were kept simple so you can spend your time enjoying the festivities that await.  Guests (and little ones) can quickly grab some salty snacks to off-set the sugar-induced comas they are likely to fall into either before or after the Trick-or-Treating begins.

The great thing about this table is you can set it up in your home at the beginning of October as part of your Halloween decorations. Just add the snacks mentioned below on party night. (or package up the snacks individually in cellophane bags to create an interactive Halloween focal point in your home for the entire month of October).


Snacks were kept super simple and included edible broom handles (mini pretzel rods), curdled screams (popcorn) and frightful fingernails (pumpkin seeds). If you want to serve something a bit more savory you could try crackers, chips, cheese trays and hot appetizers.


Decorative tissue paper water bottle wraps along with a simple Black Magic book cover are a couple of ways you can easily add some pizzazz to your decor. See links to tutorials:
