Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!

Halloween has never been my absolute favorite holiday (although I love holidays in general) because I'm not as much into the scary aspect of it, but I love some of the fantasy that comes along with it! I went to a halloween party last night and saw a fabulous pumpkin that looked just like Cinderella's carriage - the pattern can be found at the Hallmark website, and here is the picture from the site:

In thinking about how to host a non-scary, elegant Halloween Party, I would use the traditional colors, playing them up with mixed shapes of plates and glassware, and have lots of fabulous fabrics and textures, like this one see on M-A-Belle's blog:
Fall, festive and pretty
without being too spooky.
I LOVE the orange feather wreath (also found on M-A-Belle's blog) above - fabulous!
We do get the occasional Halloween wedding - a few years ago I did a fabulous Halloween wedding at a warehouse - that was SO fun to decorate! The bride dressed in a beautiful Ball gown- she was incredibly elegant, and her veil was made up entirely of peacock feathers and went all the way to the floor -stunning! All the guests dressed up, which made for a very fun and unique evening - I'm sure that is one wedding those guests will never forget!
What is the most remarkable/unforgettable part of your wedding?
