Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, and in 2012 I was lucky enough to attend the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Between the Boo to You Parade, the HalloWishes fireworks, and the special meet-and-greet opportunities with rarely seen characters, I thought it was well worth the money. I would attend one again in heartbeat, but since that wasn’t in the cards this year, we had a party in honor of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary.

Candy Corn Jello – No one in my family is really a fan of candy corn, but since it is a Halloween staple I wanted to incorporate it. I saw this random photo on a Twitter advertisement and I assumed what I saw was Jello, so that’s what I tried. All you do is make a layer of yellow Jello, a layer of orange Jello, and then whipped cream on top. I got the candy corn look I wanted without purchasing candy corn that no one was going to eat. 🙂

Paranormal Pretzels – This is an idea from Family Fun. It’s yogurt covered pretzels with melted white chocolate (use dye to get the colors you want) and mini M&Ms.

These are just Hostess Globalls a.k.a. Sno Balls (coconut & marshmallow covered chocolate cake with cream filling). I added Halloween stickers to dress them up.

Here are just some orange and black Oreo cookies and Cheetos Puffs I used for color. The skeleton cups were from Target.

Some of the decorations were from a Recollections Party Kit I got at Michaels. I added orange Mickey Mouse heads to plain black cups to bring in some Disney.

Cupcakes – These are just vanilla cupcakes with white icing that I dyed orange. We had some Halloween sprinkles on hand. The cupcake holders and food pokes were from the Recollections party pack.

Here is the full tablescape. I’m really happy with how it came out.
