This year we created a Hansel and Gretel Halloween theme. This party consumed a large part of the house with a full dessert table, working Witch's kitchen and a darker adult take on Hansel and Gretel.
For this post we focus on the dessert table where we used elements of Hansel and Gretel first finding the Candy House through to the nastier side of the Witch. We created a set of printable products to accompany the dessert table, these are available from our shop.
This theme was a lot of fun we hope you enjoy.
Our dessert table used a simple crushed velvet table cloth. On the wall we added a large spooky cardboard cut out tree with a witch peeking around the side. Some large spiders were then added to the wall.
The cupcakes represented the Witch's candy house. We used a small violet crumble's for the house and licorise all sorts for the roof and door. The house was decorated with tiny trees and candy canes from a christmas sprinkle range.
I find layered coloured jelly is always popular with the children, we made the jelly in spooky cups and topped with toppers from our Hansel and Gretel printable range
For cookies we used a witch boot and shoe, we decorated these quite simply with gold and silver couscous balls.
Colourful candy is a must for this theme, we used small crystal bowls and lots of shapes and colour.
Toffee apples are also great for a halloween Witch theme, we used black chopstick and decorated using mini bunting from our printable range.
The cup cakes did take some time to assemble but used simple techniques.
LED Lanterns are a great way to add colour and height to a table
Our printable range includes: Mini bunting, bottle labels, jelly toppers, 2 inch circles and tents
I must give my husband credit for jack O'lantern carving, he found a wonderful spooky witch stencil which worked a treat.
