This party was a lot of fun to create. Zombie's are currently very on trend with more than a few Zombie Apocalypse movies and television shows available. For our zombie party we created a zombie dessert table using a graveyard theme with tombstones and a grave digger. This party includes free printable products so you can create this at home.
The dessert table was created as a zombie graveyard. We used a plastic rock wall scene setter as the back drop. We then added a black graveyard fence, tombstones and skulls. Our stand out piece was our animated zombie grave digger complete with shovel.
Catering was keep simple but looked fantastic with graveyard cupcakes, eyeball and zombie cake pops, tombstone cookies and layered jelly cups.
We made two types of cake pops. We made crazy green Zombies with bulging eyes and eyeball cake pops which we served with a fork.
The cupcakes were very effective, yet easy to make. I made a basic chocolate cupcakes then iced with chocolate icing. The tombstones were achieved by finding the right shape biscuit and giving them a generous chocolate coating, the ground was crushed chocolate ripple biscuits and a green plastic hand completed the look. We included sugar cookies in tombstone and coffin shapes.
The stone wall extended to the ceiling creating a formidable look for a graveyard
To extend the graveyard look we extended the stone wall and created a cemetery using the same fencing and tombstones as the dessert table, this was completed with swarming bats and large spiders. The front door was guarded by a creepy zombie and a haunted tree completed the look.
The colour palate of green and blue worked well with the grey stone and injected some colour into a dark palate.
