Halloween Day 10: Parties!

I thought a little real party inspiration might be in order, even though we may be several weeks away from seeing any new halloween parties!

{A Very Vintage Halloween}

A stylishly dark party, a little gothic, a little victorian, was thrown in Beverly Hills last year by JL Designs (found via the Entertain Exchange) with a Very Vintage Halloween theme. The whole staged area comprised of thrifted pieces in lifeless colors that were paired with flowers to make for a perfect eerie halloween setting. The dessert table was done in muted colors, but created a stunning effect. The lighting of the table looks as big a part of the design as the individual desserts, pumpkins and candlesticks on the table. Delightfully spooky!


As one of those crazy people who scoops up all the special edition Halloween magazines every year and pours for hours over every one, I can tell you this was probably the most creative mock-party (by Better Homes and Gardens) I saw in all the glossy pages I thumbed through. Perhaps it’s because we  are living with our very own flock of ravens in our front rooms this Halloween or due to my love of a party with smart literary references that I love this one so much. The smallest details were attended to and it provided lots of ideas to {ahem} borrow.


And for something completely new and different! Halloween has gotten glammed up this year…I’m seeing quite a few table designs going totally glittered and veering away from the traditional orange and black. I love it! Featured on Amy Atlas, Pizzazerie offered up this Pink-o-ween party full of glitz, sparkles and PINK!
