If you’re hosting a party this Halloween, why not create a little table just for showcasing your Halloween sweets and treats, perfect for children (and adults) who won’t be trick or treating! Follow this simple guide to create the ultimate Halloween table, full of all sorts of spook-tacular sweets, but don’t forget to keep a watchful eye to curb sugar intake!
Set the scene for your sweetie table with a Halloween themed table cloth. We’d suggest going for a bright colourful range like this sugar skull/day of the dead themed tableware! You could also place matching plates on the table to showcase creepy cupcakes, don’t forget the napkins for sticky faces!
Jars and Labels
Large glass jars make great vessels for shop bought candy. Fill them up with Halloween themed sweets like jelly eyeballs and label the jars with apothecary style stickers for a truly spooky feel! We’ve seen loads of great printable labels on Pinterest, simply print, cut and paste!
If you’re short on time and can’t make your own sweet treats or you would like to compliment your home made goodies with extras, opt for a variety of scary shapes and gruesome textures! Sweets like jelly skulls, giant spiders and fizzy fangs make great additions to the Halloween treat table! If you can’t get hold of themed sweets you could add a terrifying twist to family favourites, for example, mini green jelly babies could become mini zombies!
If you have enough time you can really get creative with home-made Halloween treats! We found these great ideas across the internet…
These little critters look so effective! You could either place them in Halloween cups or dot them around the treat table to surprise your guests! They would also be perfect incorporated into a Halloween party game!

These eyeballs would look great showcased in large glass jars with potion or apothecary labels!
