Baby Shower Idea: Pink-O-Ween

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

"Well, hellooooo, gorgeous!". Yup, that's what you're going say after you're done gasping at this completely, over-the-top glamorous spread that was put together by the insanely talented Courtney from Pizzazzerie. This dessert table is not only full of yummy Halloween fun, but it's also jam-packed with little pink glittery surprises in every photo. (We die!). Yes, we're HUGE fans of this color scheme, but with a quick change in the glitter, ribbons and fabric you could change up the color scheme to match your personality or gender of your lil' bundle of joy that's on the way! Elizabeth and I are dreaming of purple with green or even blue with green or orange -- the possibilities are sort of endless! Yes, we think Kristen Steele's gorgeous photos are proof that your baby shower desserts can be both hair-raisingly cool and truly glamorous.  So, enjoy today's totally glam trick-or-treat eye candy and don't forget to also check out Courtney's sweet note below (where she shares all her secrets on where she purchased her table items and how she crafted her perfectly glitterati treats)!

From Courtney... October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I wanted to share Team Pinkoween with you not only because my father’s mother is a survivor but also for the thousands of women affected daily by breast cancer. I was excited to design a pink, “glammed out” Halloween this year and thrilled to team up with Anders Ruff Custom Designs for the party printables. Purchase yours and a portion of each sale will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. You can also donate on our Team Pinkoween site here. Even $1 is so appreciated!

Disco Dust = AMAZING! There really are no better words to describe this glittery, edible topping. Containing only non-toxic ingredients, it is the perfect topping for a sparkly treat. Sweet! Baking & Candy Making Supply is my go-to for all baking supplies including disco dust. Similar to food coloring, it is edible, though you don’t really want to eat a spoonful of it – you are safe to sprinkle it atop cupcakes or cookies though! I used American Silver. I used a clean, small brush to tap it onto my cupcakes. I loved it so much I’m going to be buying up every color soon, it’s just too much fun.

Glam was a central focus of the design for Pinkoween. These silver candles actually came from Hobby Lobby in their holiday decor (yes, they already have Christmas and winter decor out!). I jazzed them up with a simple ribbon cuff and rhinestone adornment. You will likely see these cuties again soon – working on my favorite dessert table design yet, and they will be incorporated! The pink popcorn boxes actually came from Wal-Mart of all places. I bought them last summer not knowing how I would use them (this is dangerous, you will run out of room in your house if you get into this habit, I speak from experience).

The spider cage has to be one of my favorite finds of the year. Found for just $1 at Michaels (they’re in stock now, run to your local Michaels!). They come in various shapes and colors, they are perfect for wedding or party decor. I spray painted this one black and topped with a silver glitter spray for a rusty, antique look.
