Halloween Dessert Table - Thanks to Target

Are you loving the idea of dessert tables {I know am!} at you parties?  Are you perhaps a little nervous that you can't afford to dress up a table like you see on other blogs {I know I am!}?  Have you ever heard of Target? If you answered yes to any of these question then this post is just for you!

Shauna Younge, a Minnesota-local who does amazing work with creating dessert tables, designed an awesome Halloween dessert table using items that only came from Target - including the food and decor!  Her post includes way more details about how she created the desserts, as well as transforming everyday items to match the Halloween theme!

Both those lovely black cake pedestals are from Target.  The light ghosts atop the white cake are created from regular and miniature marshmallows. Cute, huh!
The 3 and 1 jars are also from Target.
The favor bags are created using two brown sandwich bags; shred one bag and place the other non-shredded bag inside and fill with goodies {easy peasy!}.  See those skull and bones - yep, those are white chocolate made in ice cube trays - brilliant!  The brain cupcakes are just normal cupcakes with butter cream frosting and a frosting tip.
It's kind of hard to see, but the dish that the chocolate bars are set on is just a butter dish painted black {those cute wrappers were also created by Shauna Younge!}!   The dish used to hold the jellybeans is a gothic goblet!

These lovely invites were designed by Bethany Hway

To read more about how Shauna designed this inexpensive, yet super cool, dessert table, head over to her blog Sweet Tooth.  While you are there, stop and swoon at her other dessert table inspiration!  If you're interested in viewing more photos, stop by the Emily Steffen's blog {she's the great photographer of all the photos shown above}.
