Halloween Round Up

Halloween is almost upon us!  I’m sure there will be great sights and frights over the weekend, as little ghosts and goblins start to appear.  So I thought we’d wrap up with week with some of my favorite Halloween sweets, styles and treats for the year.  From gothic glam to wicked fun and creepy-crawly things that go bump in the night… it’s a Black and White Halloween Round UP!

Black & White Glam Halloween Ideas

Add a touch of gothic glam to your Halloween with these black and white glamorous finds:

  1. Nothing says Halloween glam like black lace!  THE original black lace cake by the Cakegirls still reigns supreme in my book.  Replicated many times in many ways, it instantly became a classic.  {Sending a little love out to Mary and Brenda who are working to bring their business back to life after a fire destroyed their shop.  We’re all anxiously awaiting the return of THE ultimate Cakegirls!}
  2. Put down the knife and grab a paintbrush to create these bold, graphic pumpkins.  Learn how to make your own black and white painted pumpkins HERE at Country Living.
  3. It’s not too late to BOO your neighbors!  Don’t worry, Halloween BOO-ing is a good thing!  Download this ultra-glam, black and white BOO sign HERE at The TomKat Studio, for FREE!

Black & White Wicked Witch Halloween Ideas

Ready for a little wicked fun?  These bewitching Halloween treats will leave you spellbound.

  1. Every cupcake needs a costume, and this one definitely seemed to be a hit!  Had to include our Cupcake Liner Witch Hats that went viral on Pinterest.  So break out your scissors, extra baking liners and get started!  Find our super easy tutorial HERE on Half Baked.
  2. A witch’s spells are pulled from her book and transformed in to a captivating paper wreath.  Created by Southern Belle’s Charm for a Bewitching Halloween Party by Frog Prince Paperie.  See the enchanting dessert table and wickedly mod cake HERE.  See the entire party HERE.

Black & White Creepy Crawly Halloween Ideas

It’s not Halloween without some creepy, crawling things that go bump in the night…

    I really love your black & white Halloween ideas, because I hate the color orange and I’m always looking for great ideas using other Halloween colors. Thank you!
