Creepy Halloween Dessert Table Skeleton

I never really cared for Halloween. If we’re being honest, I couldn’t even watch Jurassic Park without getting scared. Halloween stores give me the heebee jeebees.

Then I had 2 boys. This is my life now.

My kids are going to LOVE this Halloween Dessert Table Skeleton

If I had girls maybe it would be different but I’m guessing not. Kids just bring out the FUN in holidays. When I was first married I decorated for every season inside and out. At my age now I kind of dread even pulling out the Christmas tree. I wish I could snap my fingers and have an I-Dream-of-Genie-Christmas-Tree. So Halloween is definitely not on my radar. However my boys are delighted by all things gross.

And candy.

So when they came home from school to find Mr. Skeleton on our dining room table stuffed with creepy treats they were elated! I purposely made this Halloween Dessert Table skeleton very simple and easy to put together because I don’t really love buying special tools and equipment. You could really go to Target or your local grocery store and find everything you need. Customize to include the candies your family loves. I made mine with sweets that are okay for my little guy’s peanut allergy (always check labels and/or with your doctor).

    I think we were seperated at birth. I love getting corny with my recipes and this is fabulous! In fact, I love how you have changed out your FB cover to be all fall recipes. So fun! And those salted caramel pie cookies–GENIUS!!!

    I would like to point out that you could also use this presentation with veggies and dips, or meats, cheeses and crackers. Nice to have something besides sugar, sugar and more sugar at those Halloween pot lucks.

    this is a great idea! What size is your skeleton, and where did you buy it? The link that pops up on your site to amazon has a skeleton that is too small.

    Boys bring out the best of you, don’t they?! Fellow boy mom (3 boys, 1 girl) and I’m constantly amazed at what they “make” me do! Love these ideas, by the way!
