It’s Halloween folks and I can’t possibly let the day go by without doing a blog roundup of some great DIY projects showing off zombies and typical Halloween fare, pumpkins! I have to admit that I really slacked this year in Halloween decor. I was planning on painting and stenciling a few pumpkins for the doorstep, decking out the inside with cobwebs, skeletons, and bats and above all throwing the greatest fright fest ever! But I digress, with moving and getting my design business off the ground, my energy and time has been consumed with lots of non-Halloween details. But that doesn’t mean I can’t live vicariously through the blogosphere and share all the yummy decor and festivities I’ve come across.
These photos below are from Brooklyn Limestone and let me just say, she does Halloween like nobody’s business! Her vision this year stems from the Wizard of Oz, which she so charmingly coined “Wicked of Oz.” Details are what makes decorating so special and they are supremely executed here. I’m loving the custom signs and blood writing on the door. So fun!
And check out her wicked (no pun intended) invites:
These red slippers are such a great idea! Can we all just agree how talented and on point Stephanie is!? I caught wind of her blog a couple years ago and have loved every detail she puts into her work ever since. Be sure to check out more of Mrs. Limestone’s detailed shots on her blog and other past Halloween soirees and her accompanying invitations.
I also came across some really awe-inspiring DIY pumpkin projects and table decor concepts. The crafts just keep getting better and better!
I luurrvve -yes, that is correct – this diorama! Talk about a new take on pumpkin carving and it only cost Karen 30 bucks! Check out her blog, The Art of Doing Nothing for all the deets on how to make your own version. This idea could be pulled off for other festivities… think baby showers or Oscar Night celebrations, even using other materials aside from pumpkins. Definitely filing this in my memory bank for future reference.
Since I’m a sucker for a well designed table scape, I knew I would find plenty of those over at Amy Atlas, dessert table connoisseur. And lo and behold, Amy happened to be showcasing a guest feature by Karen Ayars, a Hotel Halloween. What a great idea and again the details are the elements that take an idea from ho hum to job well done! Be sure to check out Amy’s blog for lots more pics, including a few of Karen’s cute little girl, dressed the part of course.
Anyone else throwing a Halloween Bash or attempting any cool craft/decor projects? Share, share, share!! If you didn’t get rained out in the northeast area and going trick-or-treating tonight, ENJOY the candy and costumes and run like mad from the vampires.
