You could make your own cookies using special Halloween shaped cookie cutters or buy a box of individually wrapped party treats from Cheryl’s. These premium buttercream frosted cookies contain an assortment of Cheryl’s most popular flavors.
Fruit is naturally colorful and inviting, so how about a Halloween fruit arrangement from Edible Arrangements? Their Bootastic Bouquet features ghost-shaped pineapple dipped in white chocolate, bat-shaped pineapple dipped in semisweet chocolate, and cat-shaped pineapple dipped in semisweet chocolate along with banana bites dipped in both white and semisweet chocolate. All are artfully decorated with dark drizzle and artfully arranged in a keepsake container.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
If you have a pumpkin or harvest themed party planned the Harvest Chocolate Covered Strawberries by Harry and David might be the perfect centerpiece treat for your table. The box includes 12 extra-large strawberries hand dipped in pure milk, dark and white Belgian chocolate. These strawberries come dressed in fall-inspired colors and include four white chocolate pumpkins and eight chocolate covered strawberries decorated with colorful autumn leaf candies.
Once you have the treats in place look for fall foliage or bright colorful flowers to add a little height and splendor to your Halloween table. This beautiful, bright orange bouquet from ProFlowers will add just the right amount of color to your Halloween festivities. It includes a blend of orange gerbera daisies, orange dyed fuji mums and a thistle painted black with orange glitter. The spider pick adds a special spooky touch.
If you have a knack for creating flower arrangements you could make a centerpiece of your own. Simply dye fresh flowers or select artificial orange ones from the craft store. Search the Halloween sections of the store for fake spiders and other fun bugs to accessorize your bouquet. Even fake plastic spider rings would be cute tucked in among the foliage.
