Melt the candy melts and then add the melted mixture into a piping bag. Make sure it’s not super hot, just slightly warm and melted.

Next, cut a tiny hole at the bottom of the bag to pipe chocolate on a little candy eye.

Place the eyes on the donuts and the mini pretzels.

Let the candy harden and that’s it!

Halloween Ghost Themed Table Setting

Create a classic Halloween table setting using our tips! If you need a guide on setting the table we have that too.

Flowers are key for creating the perfect table setting. For a ghost party, choose black and white flowers or all white flowers to make arrangements.

Use white vases and line them down the center of the table.

Table Runner and Table Cloths

Create texture and layers with table cloths and runners. If you want to cover the table, use a large white table cloth. Then add a table runner over the top in an off white color.

Dishes and Utensils

If possible, use black and white dishes and utensils. We mixed white plates with black bowls and black enamel cups.

For utensils, we uses black Fortessa and it was perfect! White and silver would look great too.

How to Make Ghost Pumpkins

Purchase small white pumpkins with long, curvy stems.

Using black paint, paint eyes and a mouth onto the pumpkin.

Let them dry before adding them to a table setting or dessert station.

Ghost Leave Name Tags

Another super easy idea! Collect fall leaves and spray paint them white.

Then using a black Sharpie, draw eyes and a mouth to resemble a ghost.

Add your guests names on the leaf as well and use them as seating cards.

Ghost of the White Lady Cocktail

A White Lady is a classic cocktail that was created in 1919! It’s perfect for a Halloween party and we gave it a spooky touch with little ghost eyes.

It’s simple to do too. Just whip up a White Lady cocktail and gently place two small sprinkle eyes over the top. This will only work when using an egg white in the recipe.

Serve it in a couple glass for a ghostly look.
