mock party series: halloween
I'm excited to share the first part of our little collaboration today. Andrea was so great to work with and we've created a few "mock" parties for the holidays, the first one being just in time for Halloween. We thought it would be fun to show how basic elements can be used from one party to the next by simply adding in a few festive details, and here is the first party we came up with: a classy yet casual Halloween bash. Hope you guys enjoy!
The basics for this party are plain tableware, white candlesticks, a muslin table runner, and white napkins. To make it festive for Fall/Halloween we added in tiny pumpkins with black, silver + gold accents, and a quick, easy doily garland..
For the centerpiece we filled a plain platter with white pumpkins + silver ornaments (I love using them outside of Christmas), and had favor boxes (covered in black + white fabrics) scattered around the table for guests. The menu is kept simple with bowls full of soup, and a dessert bar with fall favorites: donuts tucked in glassine bags, thinly sliced apples drizzled with caramel, and tiny cups full of caramel popcorn + candies.
And finally, all of the decorations used in this party are small items that can be sent home at the end of the night with guests. The fabric wrapped favor boxes, tiny pumpkins, packaged donuts, etc. can all double as fun favors.
