All Hallows Eve Party Inspiration

LBP is a pro at featuring weddings but I am so excited to feature something different today. Different is good.

I love a good Halloween costume party. My favorite costumes thus far have been the ones that come together from what I have in my closet like President Barbie, a housewife with rollers in my hair plus a newspaper under my arm or that full sequined shorts suit I have that isn't a costume but just so startling. Yeah, it was in my closet, at the time. I graciously willed it down to another sorority sister so the legacy of a fully red, green, yellow and purple sequined shoulder pad shorts suit can carry on for generations. I do my part y'all.

I love celebrating with friends and today's inspiration is perfect for Halloween. I especially love inspiration that includes dessert. (Says girl who is currently eating a scrumptious lemon square) The Frosted PetticoatChinetSilhouette America and Mia Dee Photography teamed up to create the prettiest all hallows eve party inspiration. It is so fun, festive and party ready!

This was a collaborative shoot between The Frosted Petticoat chocolate company and Chinet. The goal was to create an elegant (yet spooky) adult themed Halloween party, using supplies from The Frosted Petticoat and Chinet. Styled by the head sugar designer, Sam, at The Frosted Petticoat, the results were spectacular! The party features three distinct displays: A candy table, a pastry/dessert bookcase, and a drink bar.

{Dessert Bookcase}
The dessert bookcase is the centerpiece of the party. Sitting court atop the sweets is a coconut cake with a lavender flavored white chocolate skull topper by The Frosted Petticoat. Also on the top shelf sits a yummy selection of spicey pumpkin cupcakes with khalua cream cheese frosting, along with The Frosted Petticoat’s famous amaretto flavored white chocolate sugar skull lollipops. The second shelf boasts a gaggle of treats: The Frosted Petticoat’s coffee flavored white chocolate sugar skulls, black & white cookies adorned with The Frosted Petticoat’s mayan chili flavored dark chocolate skeleton cameos, and dark chocolate cannolis. The bottom shelf finishes off the sweet array with raspberry & mint petit-fours, chocolate cream cookies, and The Frosted Petticoat’s Irish Cream flavored white chocolate skeleton bones.

{Drink Bar}
What adult party is complete without a fabulous bar? Utilizing Chinet’s series of plastic cups, wine glasses, and cocktail stemware we were able to put together a ghoulishly delightful drink bar for the guests to enjoy. The bar features a selection of spooky artisanal beers, Californian Pinot Noir, and an Absinthe plus Lime cocktail (the night’s signature drink). Non-drinkers of the group can enjoy a decadent pumpkin spice coffee accented with snickerdoodle donut holes. And for those needing a little salt to counter all the party’s sugar, they’ll find smokehouse almonds and Italian onion bread sticks at the bar.

{Candy Bar}
The candy table welcomes the guests with an array of adult-themed treats to please the senses: Almond coconut truffle bombs, champagne flavored body part gummies, twisted black licorice, candy corn pops, vanilla marshmallow poltergeists, and dark chocolate wafers. In addition, The Frosted Petticoat’s specialty chocolates add a gourmet aspect to the table with a large cookies & cream black chocolate skull and a set of hand painted Day of the Dead bride and groom edible toppers. Lastly, guests can wet their whistle with a gulp of “Poison” (sparkling mineral water). The “All Hallows Eve” sign was created using only a Silhouette machine and Chinet’s paper plates (a great example of how repurposing inexpensive paper goods can easily glam up any party).
