PARTY DETAILS, as told by Abigail

Every year, on just one night, the souls of the deep appear from Davy Jone’s Locker to feast. Cursed and thirsting for gold and blood, the souls of the deep walk among us. Come aboard the ship of the undead if you dare… a cursed Halloween awaits you.

If you are as obsessed with Pirates of the Caribbean as we are, you will DIE for this party! Styled in a dark and spooky old ship, with tattered sails as the back drop, our Pirates are the living dead. Unable to eat or drink anything, food and wine fill our table – untouched by human hands. Blood red candy apples, dark chocolate and fig tarts, and bowls of dark fruit surround a black layered cake adorned with purple gumpaste flowers. Atop the cake, sits a matching wooden carved and burned ornate frame with a silhouette of the doomed ship. A tarnished silver water pitcher is the perfect vessel for a unique floral arrangement – spiked, dried and feathered. The printable paper decor has a crusty, dusty, old finish built right into the design of it. Banners, bottle wraps, hanging tags and boxes embellished with tattered ribbon strips and carved wooden skeleton keys.

Real vintage candlesticks, wine goblets, books and compotes added just the right macabre touches to the tablescape. Not to mention, our creepy models who finished off the living undead look.

This party set, along with all of the contributed products can be used for a fun kids halloween party, styled up for a creepy adult halloween dinner, a gothic wedding, or pirate themed party for any occasion!

Pirates ye be warned…

  10. […] Some appetizers before your hearty meal! I love the idea of using apples for this theme. No one wants to be Barbossa and just wish they could taste them instead of having the real thing! Now, these are from a Halloween POTC party, so I would skip some of the Halloween elements, such as the color of the straws and the ribbons. But other than that, I love these and think they would go really well for this theme! Picture from Hostess with the Mostess blog. […]
