1st Annual Cousin Halloween Party: Part 1

halloween dessert table decor

This past weekend we celebrated our first annual Cousins Halloween Party for the kids who live in Cali.  My aunt Debbie is a huuuuge fan of Halloween and she has been saving magazine clippings over the years of all her favorite parties.  While visiting a few weeks ago she showed up with all her clippings and convinced me to host a Halloween shindig with her.  So we quickly cooked up a plan for this small, kid-friendly party.  It turned out to be such a blast that we’ve already decided to do it again next year.  The kids had more fun than I ever could have imagined.

We used earth quake putty to attach all the spiders to the pumpkin and the wall.

My grandma painted this rad Boo Pumpkin for us. And my aunt glued down bakers twine to embellish the other pumpkin.

Per the usual, Pinterest was a huge inspiration for this party.  All of our desserts were adapted from others awesome creations.  halloween dessert table
