A dessert table is such a welcome sight any time of the year…but there’s something about October that gets me so excited to serve up some extra sugar!  All the Halloween candies and treats are just too delicious and to pass up…and we all know how plentiful they are leading up to trick-or-treat day!  You can find all your favorites dressed up in holiday colors so it’s the perfect season for creating a sugary treat to tempt all the ghosts and goblins who come calling!  Last Thursday I shared with you some easy and whimsical ways to set a Halloween table…today I’ll share the goodies that went with it!  You can easily fill up a dessert table with some simple treats and supplies that will make your party a spooky success!  See how effortless it can be to…

wash it all down…

when you’re serving up plenty of sugar you’ll definitely want an equal amount of liquid to help wash it down!  i turned some jack-o-lantern treat containers into ice buckets to hold extra water bottles and soda!
