Halloween Dessert Table {Madison's First Birthday}

This dessert table was created for baby Madison's first birthday and since it was a halloween themed party, we decided for that to be the basis of the table. We wanted to convey a girlie feel to the table so the colour palette chosen was Purple, Black and White, with hints of Green.

I included a two tier cake with bats and a sparkly number one on the top tier. The flavours included tuxedo cake with vanilla buttercream.

Both vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream and purple and black fondant dots were placed on either side of the table, along with chocolate cake lollipos covered in purple chocolate.

The entire table was DIY including the tissue paper pom poms courtesy of the one and only Martha Stewart, and the cookie hanging trees made by collecting branches from outside and placing them in black baskets.

The cookies hanging from the trees had three different designs and were alternated on two trees.

These were the cookies in their packaging before getting boxed and ready to go that day.

This is the chalkboard pumpkin that made its appearance half way through the party. It was made by painting chalkboard paint on the pumpkin and letting it dry according to the package directions.

Happy First Birthday Madison!!
