Fab Fete: How to throw a Halloween Party Without the Color Orange

in DESIGN/DECOR, Fab Fetes

For those of you gouls and goblins looking forward to Halloween, this post may just inspire you to host your own Halloween soiree.

Here’s how to glam it up at your next Halloween bash without having to rely on the traditional orange and black theme.

All these stationary sets are available through TomKatStudios on etsy.com.  Isn’t it great that you too, can achieve such professional presentation all with the downloadable click of a button?  My last post listed my favorite free printable party downloads.  The ones shown here are available at half-off.

I just love how TomCat perfectly pairs one of my favorite prints, damask with some elegant touches of black and white with a pop of purple.  THIS is how an adult halloween party should be decorated!

The party circles are so versatile.  They can be f&b toppers, envelope stickers, labels and tags.

Here’s how TomKat’s team put it all together.  I like the dessert table below but could have done without the sconces and bat trim.

All above photos are from Laura Winslow.

I’d decorate this party with black feather wreaths and garlands from Pottery Barn- maybe use the feather garland instead of the bat garland pictured above?

I’m also loving the idea of black chandeliers with this dark, glamorous party.  Here’s my fashion meets decor collage for this party.

What do you think?

I’m going to be in Germany for Halloween this year, so this halloween party is simply a fantasy for me.

Hey exceptional website! Does running a blog such as this take a massive amount work?
I’ve very little expertise in coding however I had been hoping to start my own blog
in the near future. Anyway, if you have any
suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.
I understand this is off subject however I simply had to ask.

Thank you!

Some of my longer posts take up to 3 hours to publish (includes reviewing photos, editing them all, writing my narrative, adding links/videos, making final edits etc. There’s a huge learning curve when it comes to learning the technical side of blogging. I’m still learning!
