Halloween Vodka Jelly Shots

Hard to go past Vodka Jelly shots at Halloween served in a skull shot glass.

This year we had a Witch Hansel and Gretel theme party so the jelly was green.  We created the jelly toppers for this party and they are available as a free down load.

I make the jelly slightly more liquid than the packet recommends and add 1/4 cup of Vodka per packet. 

These are great for a crowd.

Enjoy Julie

Halloween Witch Party - Hansel and Gretel Party with dessert table

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.    


Halloween Hansel and Gretel Dessert Table

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.

Halloween Hansel and Gretel Cupcakes

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.

Halloween Witch Cat Cookies

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.

Halloween Witch Party - How to Create a Witch's House with Free Halloween printables

Almost time for another halloween season.  I really love halloween as I can go totally over the top and totally get away with it.

This year we decided on a Hansel and Gretel Witch party and a large amount of the house was used to create a Witch atmosphere.  We created a Witch's Kitchen and included lots of lotions, potions and a large stove.  This area kept all the children engaged for hours as they served each other severed fingers, brains and other ghastly morsels.  

We created a set of printable tents to label our lotions, potions and body parts.  We are offering this range as a free printable to help you create this look.

And yes, I was a very evil green Witch with my youngest children being Hansel and Gretel.

Enjoy  Julie 

Hansel and Gretel Witch Party

Our kitchen was created by attaching a large amount of crushed velvet to curtains with pegs to form a black background, we then added bookshelves and repurposed an old corner TV unit as an oven.

We collected a lot of cut glass and crystal bottles to use for potions.  These were filled with coloured water and herbs.

I found a range of skull bottles in a local discount store and used cauliflower for brains,

The stove was created using an old corner TV unit, cardboard boxes, lots of black paint and halloween ornaments. 

Halloween Witch Oven Decorating Ideas

Wine bottle crates were used to make small shelves around the stove.  We included spiders, zombie body parts and very small bottles with dyed water and small pickled onions with a clove stud.

A large cauldron was filled with bones and an over sized wooden spoon.  I used a lot of battery tea lights under the red cellophane which glowed nicely at night.

Halloween Adult Witch Party Hansel and Gretel

Finally the first day of October, and the start of Halloween season.  

Who says Halloween is just for children, luckily for me I have a number of adult friends who share my enthusiasm for dressing up and partying at Halloween.  This year we had a Witch Party with a  Hansel and Gretel theme, and while I did allow the dessert table to be child friendly the rest of the house was very dark and defiantly post the Hansel and Gretel Candy House.

The centre piece for this party was a Witch House in the woods and we will  post a tutorial on how to create this over the next couple of days.

This was a dark theme but perfect for an adult halloween party, we have created free printables for you to use and enjoy.

Enjoy Julie.  

Halloween Hansel and Gretel Witch Party

The House and Forest were the centre piece for this party, we then strategically surrounded the house with Champagne glasses, Glass Punch Bowls and Witch food.

Our Champagne glasses were all individually named with famous or should I say infamous Witches and Wizards these circles are included in our free download. 

Halloween Witch and Wizard drink tags

We used a lot of candles to create height for the forest, we also used lollipops to frame the pathway to the Witch's house.

Halloween Witch Party centrepiece

We created three punches for this party, the punch bowls were arranged together with bones, links to the recipes will be posted over the next few days with our free printable punch tents.

Halloween Punch Bowls with bones

My Halloween parties normally have vodka jelly shots and this night was no exception

The house looked great in the dark, it was full of battery tea lights which emitted an eerie glow through the windows.

We served Witch fingers at the party, these are simple packaged Italian Breadsticks with an almond sliver for a finger nail and green food gel to hold the almond.  I tend to use Silver ware and Crystal for food service at Halloween rather than disposable products.

We served a number of simple dips presented in crystal bowls on a silver tray scattered with bones and mice.  The bones were from halloween necklaces.

Halloween Witch Party Food Ideas

We included some wasabi peas, Olive mix and Japanese Oisji peanut crackers.
