Modern Halloween Party

By 10comments No tags Permalink 0

No, not our party, a hypothetical party that I’m throwing in my imaginary life. One in which the fat squirrels in our neighborhood don’t eat the pumpkins on the porch.

I’m done with real pumpkins outside because the little monsters did this last year, too. And I don’t know why they target us because the people two doors down ALSO have real pumpkins and they’re not half-eaten. Ugh. Next year I think I might try some black branches like the ones above. We don’t have side lights or a transom, but we do have a bay window near the door that would make for some creepy silhouettes at night.

Anyway. Lengthy tangent over–let’s talk about parties! As with every kind of seasonal hoopla, I like a simple, clean look (preferably undisrupted by woodland creatures). A modern Halloween, if you will. How cool are those bat cutouts above the cake? Something like that would be good in a doorway or filling up space in the corner of a room, too. The teensy jack o’lanterns are cute, especially if you’re going for a kid-friendly vibe. Ditto the bat-pumpkin place card holders and cat ears. On the more adult end of the spectrum, that gorgeous glass of booze is called a Poisoned Apple and now I’m wondering why I never thought to put tequila in my cider before. I’m also wondering if it’s a squirrel deterrent, but I bet it would only make them hang around.

What are you doing for Halloween? Going to a party? Hosting? Dragging the kids around because you’re just as excited to dress up as they are? (I will be That Parent.) Tell me about your costume!

      Right?! I don’t want to carve them because pumpkin guts give me the heebie-jeebies, but they’re adorable!

    A Poisoned Apple with a side of chocolate cake….I’ll be right over!
    Love the cat ears. I might have to remember this if we make a last minute decision to go out Sat. night!

      You should! I’m wearing two costumes on Saturday (one to the gym, one to a party) because I’m ridiculous. 😀

    Your party looks phenomenal. That drink IS gorgeous and the owls and branches by the door are right up my alley! You should see the ink illustration I finished and posted today. Tis the season!
    We’ll be attending Phantasmagoria in Orlando Friday evening (google it, it’s beyond words) and having an evening in with my sister and the little ghouls Saturday. I’m excited!
