A Spooky Halloween Dessert Buffet
Halloween Dessert Buffet

This Halloween Dessert Buffet was created for a segment I am doing on New Day Northwest, (filming and airing tomorrow on King 5 at 11AM- please tune in!)

Halloween Dessert Buffet

I absolutely love Halloween! I love the costumes, the dark décor, the pumpkins, the sweets….

I created this dark and spooky table and decor with all of my favorite items in mind. I am not much for gore, so this was the perfect balance of scary and child friendly.

Halloween Dessert Buffet

I focused on a color scheme of black and natural tones, speckled with mass amounts of glitter!

Before dessert, we all gorged on this pot of “Coco-Van”…

Halloween Dessert Buffet

I am all about using items that you find in your own home, so you will notice that there are lots of my regular old cake plates (I just used black, silver and clear glass). There are also black and silver dragon salt and pepper shakers, votives with a glitter skull sticker applied, and my mercury candlesticks typically pulled out at Christmas time!

There are also some natural elements involved such as (faux) tortoise shells, ostrich eggs and other “dead” items such as coral and abandoned shells that give it a “ye olde curiosity shop” feel. (those too were rustled up from around the house).

Coffee dyed and ripped cheese cloth, and spider webs hung from corners and candles to create a super creepy feel.

As far as DIY crafts- there are dozens of insects I glittered, as well as skulls and bones that have been glittered. (Think craft glue, paint brushes and shades of black and silver glitter) I purchased huge bags of plastic spider rings for a few dollars and turned them into pieces of art!

There is also an apothecary jar full of homemade white chocolate bones and white chocolate skulls labeled “Goblin Bones.”

A vintage feeling bar stocked with decanters and retro cocktail shakers are watched over by a wart ridden magical toad.

There are test tube vials filled with a cocktail shot made up of pop rocks, vodka and 7-up, and “eye-ball” martini’s!

Halloween Dessert Buffet

As far as the best part of the whole thing? The sweets!

We have red velvet cakes baked in mini mason jars, and topped with toasted marshmallow fluff, complete with creepy skeleton arms crawling out of the cakes!

Pumpkin cupcakes topped with caramel buttercream and creepy spiders and apple cupcakes with maple frosting and skull and cross bones round out the homemade treats!

There is also a beautiful bowl brimming with black licorice “ring worms.”

Use your Imagination, and things from around your own home to create your own wonderful spooky Halloween Table. I would serve a hot steaming pot of pumpkin soup and fresh green salad before digging into this Halloween Dessert Buffet!

So, if you are in the Northwest, please tune in to watch me go over this stuff live! Also, I will be posting these craft and recipe DYI instructions over the next week or so, get ready for Halloween Fun!
