Are you ready to start planning for Halloween? There are 5 weekends in October that are prime for hosting a party for the children. I used the Halloween printable collection from Bird’s Party to help create a kids Halloween treats table that will inspire you. Check out some of the creative ideas I came up with…

These black & orange Halloween party ideas will thrill your children as they fill up with sweet treats.

Black & orange desserts

  • I was thrilled to work with Candy Valley Cake Co. again – they made these adorable and delicious Halloween cake balls that look like jack-o-lanterns, and ghosts. These are the star of our sweets table and can be washed down with milk served from my “ghost” milk bottles.
  • In using the printable paper collection for this design I wanted to do something different. I think we are well versed in the application of cupcake circles, but how about using the circles as snack sack embellishments – creating a sort of “backdrop” to the treats inside. I did that with small white bags found at Michael’s, added a strip of ribbon down the front, and placed them in a library-style drawer. I also used one of the name cards and cut it down to fit into the label plate across the front of the drawer. You don’t have to use printable party sets only for tags, cupcakes, and place card – get creative and think of how you can use them differently!
  • This set also has cut-outs that can be used in hundreds of ways. I placed the bats on skewers, pumpkins on the centerpiece ‘haunted house’, and to decorate favor tins.

“Ghost” milk bottles

  • I have to say I was quite proud of my self when I came up with the idea of creating these “ghost” milk bottles. They are unique and whimsical and add a great detail to the table. I simply used small Styrofoam balls and placed them on top of the bottle filled with milk. Then draped cheesecloth over the whole thing, which clings to the ball to make it secure. I then punched out circles from black paper and glued them on for eyes. All the kids have to do is remove the ball with cheesecloth and drink their milk.

Halloween party favors

  • A few of the treats from the table can be used as favors. We have “test tubes” filled with Reese’s Pieces, and black tins filled with my favorite seasonal candy corn snack mix.

I hope you’ve gotten some good ideas for a kids Halloween treats table. Happy Haunting!

  5. Thank you guys, so much!
    Pat & Jennifer, those test tubes are in a lot of stores right now, like Target or Walmart. They are sold with Halloween sprinkles inside (for decorating cookies & cakes). Hope that helps and you can find them.

  6. I agree; would love to know where you got the test tubes! I think I like decorating for Halloween even more than Christmas, maybe because my kids are willing to pitch in. I just bought new coasters from Hadley (one of my addictions) to use at my party so that I don’t have to worry the kids (pre-teens actually) leaving a mark. They are super cute as well.

  7. Love Bird’s printables and your styling! Can you share where you got your “test tubes”?
