I've been bitten ~ by the Twilight Bug

I've been sitting on pins and needles waiting to be able to share Brandi's Tweedle Dee Designs Twilight inspired Halloween collection. As I mentioned in this post, I had such fun making the dessert "props" to go with her designs, and I tried to capture the essence of her theme in this collage.

It all turned out beautifully, and I love the color scheme; blood reds, dark night black, shiny silver moon, and pure pure white. Brandi's printables bring an elegant celebratory essence to a simple dessert table, and she absolutely captures the essence of the Twilight theme.

I made the Mini Cheesecake Bites, Vampire Fudge, Brownie Bites, and Russian Cream. Brandi made the eerily delicious Love Bite Cupcakes and those To Die For Apple Pops (Darn those are good!) The amazingly talented Allyson Jane provided those gorgeous Apple Cookies. We also added Lollipop Sticks, Blood Sugar Swirls from Smeeks and Vampire Kisses to round out the table.

You cannot have a Cocktail and Dessert Party without the cocktails so here is a little sampling of the beverage table.

Twilight inspired Beverage Table
I just had to include that adorable photo of Brandi giving Minnie Mouse a little hug. She's her little helper and is always so excited when Brandi comes through the door. Back to the Party though...Love my new Pottery Barn Beverage server. I've purchased and returned three other servers from various places because they leak. This one does not!

The Beverage service included Plasma Shots, Vampire Punch, Cherry Coke, and a variety of wines. For an actual dessert party, I would include a couple of dessert reds and whites to compliment the sweet table. These wines were actually more suited to the Italian lunch we served. (Mini Meatball Sandwiches, Tortellini Bites, and a Veggie Platter) A girl's gotta eat when she's working hard...and we can't let the guys feel left out :-)

To fashion your own Twilight inspired Halloween party, check out Brandi's Printables. They are in her etsy shop now at 50% Off until October 8th. That's only $6.50...woo hoo, gotta love a Real Sale! :-)
