I’m not planning a Hallowe’en party this year, but, if I was, there is no lack of inspiration available online and in magazines. So many options for party decor and treats – what to do?
This year, I would likely host a glam, Victorian-inspired Hallowe’en bash. For decor, I would get started with classic pumpkins but add an edgy, unexpected flair. I love the lace covered pumpkin idea in the Better Homes and Gardens special Hallowe’en 2010 issue. You can also find this projectUsing lace in different colours and prints could help to mix up the decor a bit as well.
Placing creepy versions of classic silhouettes in black frames around the entertaining space would add to the ambience (project how-to guide here), as would the “glam” collection from Tom Kat Studios (cupcake toppers, place cards, favour tags, etc. found here). Incorporating lots of pillar candles and candlesticks, as well as some dark floral arrangements covered in cobwebs would complete the look.
