Oh what the hell, let’s get fancy on Halloween.
First of all, I LOVE HALLOWEEN. Who doesn’t though? Right?
You get to dress up & let your freak flag fly ( hey, alter egos! ). And well, candy is just so damn pretty to decorate with…that let’s just say I get carried away on this spooky holiday.
Believe me when I say I’m the bitch roaming the Home Good aisles, dying to get creative in any way. I’m very pro Home Goods. Pro pixy straws, cooper plates, lucite candle holders, & cute doorstep rugs, if you haven’t noticed?
Anyway when I found out we’d be in Florida for Halloween I was a teensy bit PISSED OFF because BOO!! I wanted to get real in to the festivities at home. Since I knew I’d be missing out, I invited my friend, Jacqueline over & we had a little Halloween soirée with copious amounts of chilled champagne, Euro cheese, & sour Skittles.
Here’s a peak inside our night:
Ok, let’s talk must-haves. Please note that the black faux fur is included because it’s the perfect non-costume for Halloween. It kind of reminds me of that movie “The Birds” for some odd reason which was totally eerie & creepy. I mean, can you imagine 35982734 birds flying around you? OUCH.
And another thing: how fun is it to use creepy-ass plastic spiders as wine charms?? Just make sure you buy different colors so you can tell each person’s glass apart. Throwing plastic eyeballs in to cocktails is funny too. Sometimes I make Michael dinner when it’s not Halloween & add plastic eyeballs to his pesto spaghetti squash…MUHAHAHA. I can’t help it, guys— it’s too easy.
Rock candy is the BEST champagne garnish because it’s super long & kind of looks like a stirrer. Make sure to use black cups, plates, details for a spooky effect & you’re good to go!
Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to go search for a plastic, kiddo Halloween mask in Miami. Wish me luck— Lauryn
…& of course I had to share a throwback from last Halloween too:
