Halloween Black Cat Ball

Halloween Black Cat Ball

 

This year, I thought it would be fun to throw a kid-fancy party for our Halloween bash for Festivities Magazine.  It was all about luxury on paper—draping curtains, candlesticks and cake stands all were printed and used to make a striking backdrop for a spooky “Black Cat Ball.” A few feathers, sparkling touches and satiny tablecloths, and the kids thought they were spooky high rollers!

Kids always love individual servings, so there were many small bites in little serve ware for them to pick up and run with. Cupcakes in champagne glasses and butterscotch pumpkin mousse in tiny martini glasses were exciting little fancy desserts for the kids.

We tempered the sweets this year with a few healthy options. Homemade Parmesan crackers with poppy seed cat heads were offered in individual cups of hummus. “Beta Carotene Brooms” aka carrot sticks in mini cauldrons of ranch dressing were another offering that delighted the kids and offered a nutritious creepy snack among the sugar.

Other spooky sweets included meringue ghosts, spun spider petit fors, and ominous ombre polka dot cakes.


Bees Knees Creative provided a set of stunning themed sugar cookies to match the graphics.

My favorite item on the table were the mini-push pops. Each tube holds less than an ounce, so it was perfect for creating a shot of flavor! The pop was stuffed with oreo truffle filling and the top dipped in white chocolate to seal it closed. A catty edible decoration (made from royal icing) perched on top.

Our little guests in all their ball finery had fun with “fancy” dancing and feeling a bit special in their tuxedos and party dresses.

They took home festive tubes of  bubblegum from Laugh Loud Smile Big and a special creepy gift from the cat, fish skeleton sugar cookies.


All the printables seen here, including the large format prints for signs, curtains and cake stands are available in the Frog Prince Paperie Shop!
