Yesterday, I posted about our annual Halloween dinner party here.
The post got rather long, so I'm posting today about the Halloween decor for the party.
The front door welcomes our guests. We set up a fog machine and when someone rings the gate, we crank up the fog, so that they approach the house in a spooky haze. See this little grill in the door?
See this mechanical hand? We open the little door and stick this hand out into the fog. It always sets the tone for the giggles of the night.
The living room has a spooky, bat covered candelabra and a bright pot of mums.
And there's a glittery pile of bones.
The end table holds a pottery bowl filled with acorns and sparkly fall fruit.
In the powder room, there's a pile of Halloween hand towels.
And in the corner, there's another pot of mums.
This feathered vulture ponders the future of this little pumpkin.
The black cat checks out another one.
One more Halloween detail is new this year.
This vignette sits on the kitchen counter beside the sink.
This end table in the keeping room holds a sweet little bouquet from the cutting garden.
I put together this arrangement in the dining room with flowers from Whole Foods. The flowers turned out so vibrant that they actually look fake.
They sit on three different sizes of faux bois pottery logs that I found at Homegoods.
The bar holds this arrangement on a bird topped metal tier.
And I used a small pumpkin on the console on the bar.
This little French peasant girl is a new piece. I found these teeny little fall vegetables and filled her brass baskets with hay and vegetables. It's her first Halloween with us and I think she's a bit nervous about all the scary stuff. She shouldn't worry. Our guests are harmless!
