I pretty much had closed the book on Halloween this year….the time had come, I had shared all of my favorite orange and black finds for the season…..in some ways, I was over it (even before it happened!). But then, this amazing party showed up in my inbox from photographer Meg Baisden. It stopped me dead in my tracks! So fun, so different from everything else I have seen…..I just had to share it with you! So, I apologize for the late post today….but I tried to get this up as fast as I could.
For all of you last-minute hostesses….Meg has some great ideas that are easy to do (and she did them all by buying Halloween decorations off the sale rack!). Here are a few details about the party from Meg:
“This party was all about glittery-glam decor, Halloween themed appetizers and a friendly game of Texas Hold ‘Em – and it was done on a BUDGET! I bought most everything after Halloween last year and sat down with my good friend and employee Jamie and we glittered everything for DAYS. Skulls, 10 cent Walmart plastic mini pumpkins (on sale last year in December at 90% off the original $1 tag!), dollar store plastic spiders and webbing … oh, and IKEA for the fabulous black frame!”
I love the use of spiders (especially the ones hanging from crystals), and absolutely adore these glittered gourds! Such a fun, yet somewhat sophisticated way to do Halloween for adults! Great inspiration – thanks to Meg for sharing her party with us! Oh, and if you are looking for a Halloween playlist for your party tomorrow night – Meg has a full playlist waiting for you on her blog!
