Move over vampires, zombies are taking over this Halloween! I love, love, love AMC's The Walking Dead
and I can't wait for the October 14 season premiere. It inspired my zombie-themed Halloween table
that premieres tomorrow, so today I'm sharing a few great ideas I came across.
The Walking Dead party table and printables from Hello My Sweet
Zombie party supplies from Oriental Trading
Marshmallows from The Decorated Cookie.
Zombie party from Hank & Hunt via Cupcakes & Cutlery
featured on Apartment Therapy...link to the original is gone (I believe it's from the now-defunct Cookie Magazine...boo), but check out Martha's cupcake how to
for piping the frosting
Living Locurto's very clever Brain In A Jar
comes with free printables.
Or if you need your labels a little gorier, check these out from Celebrations
...I wish I came across these sooner, they matched my table better than Living Locurto's but they are both just as awesome.
Break out that gingerbread man cookie cutter and make a few zombie cookies like these from user Corrie76 on Cake Central
. I love how some of them have intestines hanging out.
My favorite place to find the most weirdest and amazing things is Archie McPhee...for those of you who do not have the pleasure of living near them, they do have an online shop where you can score on zombie pets
for cake toppers or favors.
I love to show themed movies in the background during a party...there are a ton of zombie movies you've probably never heard of but here's a list of classic must-haves:
Night of the Living Dead (
Dawn of the Dead
Night of the Comet
Shaun of the Dead
28 Days Later
28 Weeks Later
The Walking Dead
, seasons one and two
anything from the Resident Evil
Come back tomorrow to see how I pulled it all together!
