While you can’t deny that Halloween is one of the most entertaining holidays of the year, not everyone is inspired by the traditional Halloween decor.  This year, we thought it might be fun to glam it up, and make Halloween a little (dare I say?)… prettier!  We envisioned a Halloween party for the grown-ups, full of drama and modern elegance.  The classic orange & black combo was remade into a softer, Parisien-chic palette, full of wispy peaches, ivory & matte black.  The end result was an intimate candlelit affair, complete with an all-black dessert table and an all-white cocktail table to highlight the chiaroscuro.  There’s so much to inspire you for your own Halloween party – including beautiful invitations from Julie Song and stunning flowers from Forêt Design, all captured by the lovely Rebecca Hansen. See the full affair right here.

 

As with all elegant things, the ingredients of this party are simple, and thoughtful.  If you haven’t seen the DIYs for this party broken down yet, you can do so right here. You won’t believe how quick and easy they are.  Glass bottle candle holders made from wine bottles you probably already have lying around the house, a charming pumpkin champagne chiller, and a trick or treat game to play that’s as gorgeous as it is fun.  Pair that with delicious treats in both black and white, good friends, and our fabulous champagne cocktail (coming up next week!), and you’ve got a Halloween you won’t forget.
