Dressing Up Your Halloween Drinks

“Where can a nice ghoul go to get a drink?”  Right here!  Whether it be alcoholic or not (can’t believe I offered an option) I’ve got a couple easy ideas to make your Halloween drinks fun with a few Wilton Halloween products.

I’m not normally a blood n’ guts Halloween enthusiast but I don’t mind a little faux A positive for festive effect especially when it’s sparkly.  It’s just friendlier that way.  I found this over-sized bowl at Kohl’s and thought it would be great as a punch bowl.  I liked how the rim flared out so I could add Wilton’s Blood Red Sparkle Gel to the inside of the punch bowl so guests could see the effect.

I made ghost ice cubes with the 6-Cavity Halloween Silicone Mold.  The shapes include bats with fangs, jack-o-lanterns and the ghosts.  How cute are the ghosts floating around the punch after giving it a quick stir? So fun in a big group or placed in individual glasses.

Do you remember your physics? Me neither but for some reason I can recall it if it pertains to a cocktail.  It kind of goes like this – if you add mass to a liquid the volume will increase and the liquid level will rise.  This is called displacement, but you probably knew this already.  Know what else I know?  When the level decreases or lowers, this is called one happy mama.  I bet you already knew that too.  So remember your physics when adding your liquid and ice in relation to the red gel decoration.  This lesson was brought to you by the letter “C” for “cheers”. 

The gel is such a good consistency where you can add it to either inner or outer rims of bowls or glasses and it won’t run.  It’s gel perfection.  Of course, it’s also perfect for cupcake and cookie decoration since that’s what it’s basically made for.  The Sparkle Gel also comes in a variety of colors and even in Pumpkin Spice!

Other fun accents for your Halloween party drink table are the Beaker Party Cups.  I added Spider Black Sparkle Gel to the outer rims.  Perfect for a nice Chianti to accompany your fava bean dip.   “Fffffffff.”

If your looking for a black non-alcoholic libation, there are lots of dark juices available such as black berry, pomegranate and acai.

For a black alcoholic cocktail, I recommend using Blavod which is a black colored vodka.

Scaredy Cat Napkin Holder/Place Card

As a continuation of my Halloween decorations, making the napkin holder/place card is so easy. Take an extra cat cut-out from the ideas on the “Hissy Fit Halloween Garland Post” and use the punched out holes on the cat’s back to thread 6mm ribbon through. In the ribbon loop on the back of the cat place the napkin. Pull the ribbon taut and tie in a bow. You can write the name of your guest on the cat with a… [Read More]

“Hissy Fit” Halloween Garland!

I love Halloween decorations whether I’m hosting a big monster mash bash or a small intimate dinner party which I’ll be doing this year.When I was at Paper Source I saw these cute scaredy cat cut-outs. It’s actually a kit of 8 cut-outs and some silver cording but it would be very to easy to make your own. If I wasn’t pressed for time with my NYC trip coming up next week, I would use my large cat cookie cutter… [Read More]
