Halloween Bash Mochatini

My Halloween projects for DIYNetwork have been making me feel a little nostalgic about the monochromatic Halloween Bash look I created for Bright.Bazaar a couple of years ago. (has it really been that long??)

To refresh your memory:

While not particularly fond of Halloween, mostly because it shadows my birthday, I really enjoyed designing and crafting this tablescape.

How do you feel about Halloween? Are you working on any spooky craft projects?


Happy Halloween and Birthday Weekend

Do you love or loathe Halloween? Are you dressing up? I am not but I do have a fun outfit for Dexter. If any of you are looking for last-min Halloween party decor ideas, check out this monochromatic bash that I created for Bright Bazaar. I used old record as chargers. For the centerpiece I spray painted pumpkins, artichokes and fabric hydrangeas in a flat black finish.



More details on Bright Bazaar.

Thanks for your visits this week. Have a great weekend.

Party Central + Monochromatic Halloween Bash

WARNING this might give you house envy!

If my house had a bumper sticker it would read “This is what I want to look like when I grow up”. Let me elaborate visually.

The black main door framed by greens, a tasteful entryway, a dining room all set for entertaining, a well-styled bar, a backdoor lit with the golden glow of the sunset, and a garden begging for alfresco meals…a home designed for grown-ups, with serious style that LOVE to entertain.

From a “Party Central” bachelor house in Hermosa Beach, CA to Elizabeth Kennedy’s riverfront home in Georgia to a NY townhouse designed by Michael Smith, the latest issue of House Beautiful makes my house scream “WHEN CAN WE MOVE IN?”

While my house stops drooling, I thought you might like to peek at the Halloween Bash I styled for Bright Bazaar..Yes, my first guest column is live…ps: enter at your own risk!!
