A Happy Halloween It Was!

Wow! What a Happy Halloween I had! Words cannot even begin to explain the way I am feeling at the moment. Still completely ecstatic and excited to have been featured on the ever so inspiring Amy Atlas blog on Monday for my Halloween dessert table. This is such an honor and dream come true and it re-affirms my love and passion for creating and styling parties, since I began to dabble in it a little over 2 years ago. For my efforts and hard work to be recognised by Amy Atlas-  it is such a reward and I am ever so grateful.

Halloween celebrations are becoming more popular and this year more than ever before. I decided to have an intimate Halloween dinner party with some fun for the adults and children. Plus, it was another celebration where I could have the opportunity to style a dessert table!

Not wanting to focus on just traditional Halloween colours, I turned to dessert queen and my idol, Amy Atlas for some inspiration. I absolutely adore Amy's range for Cocodot  and I immediately fell in love with the turquoise blue/orange colour palette. I added black and white for sophisticated chic and elegance and a little spookiness.

A black and white doily inspired backdrop, black victorian frame {my current favourite backdrop atm!}  filled with orange fabric hanging on orange grosgrain and my beloved collection of Rosanna Inc cake stands and glass candy jars filled with delicious candy- including blue m&m's {imported from usa!} and some candy corn {which I was so excited to find here in Aust, yum!}

I had so much fun styling this Halloween table and I look forward to continuing my passion for dessert styling for all events! x

Thanks Tina, the boys had fun mixing and stirring it all up :)
