A Very Vintage Halloween in Beverly Hills II
October 30, 2009
United States

Photographed by the always-remarkable Meg Perotti... this Beverly Hill's affair is proof that Halloween can truly be stylish. Yelena Johnson of The Stylish Soiree, gathered together some of LA's most talented young wedding professionals to throw an event so hair–raisingly awesome it's worthy of a Tim Burton movie.

From Yelena of The Stylish Soiree...

Carissa from JL Designs created the lovely vintage vignette with items sourced from thrift stores and I brought in an old vintage side table too. Jesi Haack also helped by bringing the great green velvet chairs and the tall lanterns. All of the gorgeous florals were done by Carissa at JL Designs, and incorporated succulents, reindeer moss, dahlias, black and white anemones and scabiosas and some great berries for a rustic, vintage feel. Vintage clocks, trays, typewriters and vessels rounded out the decor.

During the party, guests enjoyed signature "ISy Kiss" cocktails with IS Vodka (pronounced 'ice), tray passed appetizers and desserts from the amazing Sweet & Saucy dessert table. The table included fun seasonal items like Pumpkin Cupcakes, Coconut Cupcakes, Pumpkin Pops, Chocolate Mousse Dessert Shots, Sugar Cookies, Pumpkin Caramel Cheesecakes.

Carissa and I bought these great unusual pumpkins that have a cool vintage vibe to complement the rest of the decor without using the typical Halloween orange pumpkins. The pumpkin on the welcome table pictures are a special type of 'Australian blue' pumpkin that have a great green/gray/blue hue.
