How to Set Up a Halloween Party Table

Need some last minute inspiration for a Halloween party table? Don’t worry I have you covered, the table I am sharing today is easy to set up. The first thing to do is to find a fun table cover, I used some checker board pattern fabric from my local craft store.halloween party table 1halloween party table 5halloween-party-table-8 I stacked two of my white cake stands to add some height. At the top I placed a foam pumpkin and at the bottom the red velvet cupcakes.halloween party table 7 Of course, there can’t be a Halloween party without any candy. halloween party table 9Party favors are another must have, a plain black gable box can easily be embellished. I used the Sizzix decorative strip die-Halloween shadows to decorate the black boxes I already had.

This Halloween party table was set up in about ten minutes or less (without the crafting of the gable box or the utensil bags). It is festive and fits the Halloween theme perfect.

I am sharing a Halloween party table that can be set up in 10 minutes. It is the perfect set up for your next Halloween party!

Happy Halloween!!

I also wrapped some rice krispy treats in treat bags which I then tied off with bakers twine.Budget Friendly Halloween Party I placed some gummy worms in test tubes and displayed them inside a monsters munchies ceramic cauldron.Budget Friendly Halloween Party Budget Friendly Halloween Party Budget Friendly Halloween Party Budget Friendly Halloween Party Budget Friendly Halloween PartyThe cupcakes needed to be displayed in a fun way so placing them inside a mini plastic cauldron was the perfect touch.

  • Black marker
  • Glue

Frankenstein Gable Box 1

Now that you have gathered all your supplies measure the black card stock paper to the length of the box and decide how thick you would like Frankensteins hair. Once you have the rectangle, cut out little triangles to form his hair. Glue the hair to the box.Frankenstein Gable Box 2Next, glue the eyes to the box.
Frankenstein Gable Box 3Now, cut out 2 bolts from the gray card stock and glue those to the side of the box.
Frankenstein Gable Box 4 Finally, with the black marker draw a mouth on your Frankenstein.

4th of July Table

Hello everyone I am so glad to be back and sharing an easy 4th of July table that I created for last year. This budget friendly 4th of July table that is decked out in the classic American red, white, and blue is sure to get everyone excited for the celebration.
4th Of July Table 14th Of July Table 2I filled these little patriotic baking cups with some yummy kisses chocolates wrapped in red and silver foil, they matched the rest of the table perfectly.4th Of July Table 3I also filled these patriotic snack cups with some delicious popcorn. They were a huge hit!
4th Of July Table 5I dressed up my glass milk bottles with some metallic star bead necklaces and star printed paper straws. 4th Of July Table 7When I saw this glittered cutlery at Target I knew it would be perfect, I placed a set inside a small canvas bag along with a blue napkin. It is an easy way for guests to just pick up a set and take with them to their table.4th Of July Table 6Of course any party table isn’t complete without cupcakes, we placed ours on some star shaped plates. This table was fun and easy to put together, I hope you take some inspiration from it for your own 4th of July table. 4th of July Table

Simple Oscars Party Ideas

Let’s roll out the red carpet for these simple Oscars party ideas. It’s that time of year when celebrities dress up in gorgeous designer clothing and enjoy a night honoring the best films of the previous year. While we don’t all get to attend this event we can still enjoy the night from the comfort of our own home where we can watch the beautiful and not so beautiful gowns and guess who are the winners of the night. Today I will share some easy and simple party ideas that you can easily recreate yourself.Let's roll out the red carpet for these simple Oscars party ideas by Creativities Galore. From the dessert table to the swag bag, easy tips to use at your own Oscars viewing partyI went with the traditional Oscars colors black and gold with a hint of red. For my backdrop I used my die cutting machine to cut out some gold glittered stars and taped them to the wall. I also cut out smaller gold stars and scattered them on the table.

Who knows maybe we even talked about future collaborations during our lunch.

Laura was our amazing host, she opened up her doors to us to and this fun collaboration. She created this fun faux cake to be the centerpiece of the dessert table. For the cake topper she used some glittered hearts I created for her that were originally used in her pirate valentine’s day party.
