Trick or Treat for our Haunted Halloween Party

Happy Haunted Halloween Printable Design Collection Party

Trick or Treat!  We have some EYE-candy for you today!

We are THRILLED to share our Haunted Halloween Party Photo Shoot with you today!  (Printable graphic collection now available in the shop!)

For this year’s Haunted Halloween printable design collection, we wanted to show a spookier side to Anders Ruff!  We used a mix of antiques (books, cameras, medicine bottles, paper documents from the early 1900s, an old clock & typewriter, shutters and window panes) to give that haunted house feel.

The backdrop was an olive green silk that had embroidered tree branch looking detail and it was the perfect fabric to give a haunted forest look.  We tea-stained cheesecloth (DIY) to drape over the table for depth and interest.  The old columns were the perfect side decor to anchor the table because they reminded us of the columns of an old haunted house.
Bat sugar cookies (From Firefly Confections) were hung from the ceiling as if they were swooping through the air.

We couldn’t do this shoot without a black cat!  (Thanks to our local humane society!) The kids dressed up as the classic witch and mummy which we designed these custom costumes.

Happy Haunted Halloween Printable Design Collection Party 2Since we didn’t want to scare our little goblins away, festive treats such as hanging bat cookies, pumpkin & owl cookies, mummy-mallows (mummy-head marshmallows), boo-meringues (meringue ghosts), white chocolate drizzled caramel apples, chocolate skeleton keys were displayed.  These treats gave a kid-friendly feel to the setup while still showing unique ideas for desserts.

Our focal point of the main dessert table was an antique typewriter where we displayed pumpkin and owl cookies, plus witch’s spells from our printable collection.

We used accents of old-school cameras to accessorize the table and flowed well when it was mixed in with the haunted house photography/banner (in the printable package).

The chocolate skeleton keys were the perfect touch!  I made these and LOVED the way they turned out!  Use these chocolate molds to make your own chocolate skeleton keys!

Old medicine bottles wrapped in our graphic designs were used to display the Mummy-mallows and Boo-meringues (which I made the night before!)

We made inverted book displays (DIY) out of old beat up books and used varying sizes to add height and dimension.  A vintage ammo box was used to hold caramel apples and an antique door knob was set up to hold the chocolate skeleton keys (DIY – we will be showing how to make these on our new website soon www.andersruff.com).  We made these chocolate skeleton keys from key molds and also our printable key template that is included in the printable collection.  We also made the caramel apples (DIY) and drizzled white chocolate horizontally to carry through the same “look” as the wrapped mummy treats (and model!).

We wanted to show a more eclectic way to serve cupcakes so Got What It Cakes layered the cupcakes in mason jars topped off with chocolate spider webs.

A side bar was perfect to display our bat-juice (apple cider) and other small treats.
We used hues of burnt orange, olive greens and natural creams & browns.
Our printable graphics included modern polka-dots, skeleton stripes, vintage bead-board stripes, and classic tweed patterns.  We used some Harry Potter inspirations for witch spells and potions.  We also included real haunted house photography for our main banner.

We used old shutters and a window pane for our backdrop – a simple prop that gives a bold statement.
More antique books, cameras and medicine bottles were displayed to hold our treats.  We added some Spanish moss for another spooky element.

We created a square Trick or Treat banner to offset the scene.

Happy Haunted Halloween Printable Design Collection Party 18Our drink tray was wrapped with old paper documents (DIY).  This was so easy to do and gave one of our modern trays a new look.
The bat juice (cider) you see is in mini canning jars with an old fashioned candy stick straw.

Happy Haunted Halloween Printable Design Collection Party 21Popcorn cones (made out of our printable patterned papers and embellished with a printable party logo) were filled with fresh popcorn and strung along the table with mini-clothes pins, so the kids could easily take them off to eat.  We piped chocolate cobwebs (DIY) to add to the tops of some of the popcorn cones as well.

Mini-candy-bar wrappers embellished the tiny chocolates.

  4. Angie says:

    I love love love it all. Truly very inspiring. I have a silly question. For the free printables do i just print them out on white cardstock? Or do i find the paper you used?

    • Maureen Anders says:

      Hi Angie! We include a full sheet of instructions with the printables that give recommendations for paper types. Yes, white cardstock would work – also, photo paper or label sheets (Sticker paper).

      Thanks!

  2. […] Spiders, bats, owls and black cats become recurrent themes every year when it’s time to decorate the space for the Halloween party. On one hand it’s cute and on the other it’s a little spooky. You can easily integrate these things into the décor in the form of treats, garlands, banners and centerpieces.{found on andersruff}. […]
