How To Set Up A Halloween Dessert Table

Dessert tables are probably my favorite part of any party.  For this Halloween dessert table, I knew I wanted to have a mix of spooky, creepy, and beautiful elements.  

Here's a quick video from my YouTube channel to get a closer look on this Halloween party dessert table:

You'll notice a lot of the Halloween sweet treats on my dessert table are from some of the other days of the 13 days of Halloween party ideas.  You can find links for these tasty sweets at the end of this post. 

With all of my party buffet setups, I like to have a fun backdrop and I make sure that there are different heights on the table.  That way, there is something interesting to look at no matter where your gaze travels to.   On the backdrop of the Halloween party dessert table I used a black tablecloth attached to a background frame and added creepy cloths and faux spiderwebs.  Next to the table sits our skeleton friend that my kids named Sheldon. 

I'm a little bit obsessed with drink dispensers and this glass pumpkin one is my favorite.  I'll use it again for Thanksgiving, and any other fall party that might be happening this year.  I'm also planning a Cinderella party pretty much just to pull this drink dispenser out again.  

Here's a good example of the creepy/beautiful mix I was referring to earlier.  I love this rose tablecloth, and actually originally used it in wedding party setup.  Layered with fake spiderwebs and spider table scatter from Dollar Tree makes this perfect for Halloween.

Other decor on this Halloween party dessert table includes a real pumpkin, foam tombstone, and plastic skull.

Here are a few more pictures of our Halloween party dessert table.
