Hello, happy Friday and happy kickoff to Halloween weekend! I know, I know I’m rarely on here but I finally got a light under my butt to post. I guess what really inspired me to do so is this really cute snack station I set up for my kids decked out in Halloween décor. We already have a snack station in our kitchen but this one is just too cute to not share with y’all. Look at what this mama did for her kiddos (and herself).
I guess you can say what started this whole décor area is that I bought a spider-web cake stand from Target (dollar spot area) a few weeks ago and I was determined to use it and not just wait for when I baked a cake. And since it’s a spider-web I knew I had to put it to use somehow before Halloween. Well I always have small mandarins for the kids to snack on and the whole idea grew from there. First, I thought I would just stack on the oranges then it hit me that I could draw them like jack-o-lanterns like I’ve seen many times before. Ta-da!
I knew my daughter would love it and she is actually the one that drew all of those cute faces. I mean look at her designs. Too cute! My son is now a cool 13 year old so I didn't think he would be as excited but he said it was pretty awesome and "it was so lit." Holla.
I also used this spider candy dish for their fruit snacks. I got it from Kohl's a couple of years ago (after Halloween clearance).
And this is a candle holder I got on clearance a few years ago as well. Hobby Lobby I think? I stuck a few of Ghirardelli chocolates in there because why not?
Here is a different angle of the snack station.
To the far left is a sugar skull that I (in a decent attempt) decorated at a local bake supply store. I love that place! I have it sitting on my food scale and next to it is a vase (similar to this one) I filled with candy corn and stuck in some Halloween sprays I got from Michael's.
That's it. I wanted it to make it cute and fun while still having all of their go-to snacks in easy reach and I think I accomplished it. Now I need to think of a Thanksgiving/Fall and Christmas set-up. Happy Halloween!
