With exactly one week until Halloween I decided to give you lovelies a stylish shopping list of swanky and sophisticatedly spooky things to juge up your party decor. Personally, I am not a huge Halloween person as in the whole blood, guts, gore, and gruesome body limbs stuff completely grosses me out and jump starts my gagging (the candy part I'm totally on board with). I prefer my Halloween to consist of elegant finger foods (no pun intended), champagne, and loads of glitz and glitter. I prefer my "skeletons" to be artfully drawn medical sketches, my "spiders" to be in the form of deep plum colored spider mums and sexy lace table overlays, and my "blood" to be in the form of a vase of blood red Calla lillies or a blood orange cocktail. The key to a suave and savvy spook fest? Keep everything black and glossy and accent with all things gold and glittery, minimize the use of plastic party store decor, bright orange, and cheap accessories and focus on dramatic, slightly Gothic inspired pieces that command the space with their size and substance.
And, if you have some extra time this week between finalizing your costume and finishing your decor I strongly suggest you go craft crazy and paint your pumpkins with some stylish Missoni inspired chevron, a colorful suzani, or some classy black and white ikat, they are FABOOLOUS.
Stay Hauntingly Haute,
