Are you wondering how do I style a halloween party – A grown up one? Let me throw you some tips so you can wow your friends at home.
Where to start
Choose your colour scheme. Traditionally there’s not much to play with here. Black, orange, red, purple, gold are about your strongest colours for this time of year and this is plenty! If you remember my rule from previous blog posts you’ll know to stick with 2 or 3 colours to keep it slick.
Where & what to display & dress
Up there at the top of the list should be to decide what sort of party you want to hold. Like if you are having a dinner party where you’ll want to dress the table or a stand up drinks you can decorate more of the room.
This is loads of fun if you’re having a drinks reception. Theres a focal point and it gets everyone fully immersed.
Likewise this dark moody dresser could be propped with some ghoulish props or kept gothic and moody..
For dinner parties or events you can still go super stylish and have as many gourds and pumpkins as you like or none at all and get really creative. I utterly love this company. @casadeperrin on Instagram. They do all sorts of table top curation & rental in LA and are the absolute best!
I also love this image on Lettice event Pinterest page. It’s macabre but also delicate too. Big up – if it was their super cool creation.
You know how easy this would be to do. You can buy mirrors like this from Ikea and using those spray paints to distress the frame and the mirror adding the skeleton with a glue gun. Hey presto you have a great feature.
No halloween party is complete without some front door decoration. This is mandatory. It helps your guests know where to come and gives them an exciting taster of the stylish event they have waiting for them inside.
