October is just around the corner and that means that Halloween isn’t far behind! Personally, it’s one of my favorite holidays to celebrate, and Paula of Frog Prince Paperie definitely shows us how to do Halloween right with this amazing, silhouette-style “Bewitching Halloween Bash. All I can say is… “WOW!”

From the darling spider cake pops and intricate sugar cookies to the wicked-cool “perfectly poisonous parfait“, Paula’s attention to detail and styling is absolutely SPOOK-tacular!! {wink} Some of my favorite details include the Bewitched Bookpage Wreath, the muslin treat bags adorned with witch silhouettes, and the perfect little chocolate chip pumpkin face cakes. The donut broomsticks are beyond creative too! (I’m going to borrow this idea for my son’s class Halloween party.) And don’t forget about all the perfectly coordinating paper details, which you can purchase in the Frog Prince Paperie Shop!

Read on for LOTS more bewitching photos + all the magical party details. . .


PARTY DETAILS, as told by Paula

Double double toil and trouble, something bewitching this way comes!

This year’s ‘Bewitching’ Halloween started with a few silhouettes of the seasonal sort that were then wrapped in argyle and spooky patterns for a classic look.  Much gratitude to the Berzsenyi family who allowed Heather Stine Photography and I to photograph their 100-year-old house while under restoration.

Our little guests arrived at the front door candy bags in hand. The delightful costumes worn by the girls were created by Debra at Patti Fabulous. I love the little feathered hat worn by Ella Rae!

Inside the party room, the bewitched table was laden with sweets. Andrea of Contemporary Cakery provided us with so many gorgeous goodies! The children couldn’t help but squeal with all the delights. My favorite were the chocolate chip pumpkins with cream cheese frosting on the inside — all with different jack-o-lantern faces. She also provided batty black velvet whoopie pies and the scary spider cake pops.

JP Creatibles used our set design as a starting point and created the amazingly beautiful cookies. Each was a little work of art decorated to perfection.

The little harlequin and pumpkin fondant toppers were created by Lynlee’s Petite Cakes and finished off our cupcake display under the witch hat perfectly. Keeping all these goodies company were our dangerous donut skewers—on DIY witches brooms, and some “perfectly poisonous parfait” topped with tiny DIY witch hats.

Southern Belle’s Charm created the beautiful beautiful paper wreath and the paper fan-style picks with bewitching graphics for the dessert table.  Laugh Loud Smile Big made the little muslin treat bags by creating an iron-on. They were just perfect for holding a stylish handful of treats!

And what’s a party without a little bit of fun? We had a face paint artist, Debra Heuskin Face and Body Artist, paint the girls’ faces with flair. There was also a donut eating contest—the contestants couldn’t use their hands and the donuts were strung from the doorway. I admit, this was a bight more fun for the adults to watch than it should have been.

As our guests were leaving they were welcome to pick up a treat bag or two.  A bewitching cake by Contemporary Cakery served as the centerpiece along with take-home bagged and bowed sugar cookies.”
