{Happy Halloween!}: Orange, Black + White

October 31, 2011

{Orange, Black + White}

Happy Halloween! I don't know about you, but Halloween always brings out the kid in me. Halloween, for me, brings back so many memories... I remember dressing up in my mom's handmade costumes year after year. I remember running around my old neighborhood with glow sticks in hand, and most of all I remember coming home with a pillowcase full chocolate & sugary goodness! This board is for all of those who are considering having a Halloween wedding! In my design, I incorporated all of the fun Halloween motifts. {continued...}

Details We Love
Pumpkins + BOO
Starting out, I knew I wanted the board to feel fun & festive but at the same I wanted there to be an element of sophistication. Some of my favorite ideas in this board include the mashed BOO-tatoes paired with the little carrot pumpkins! How cute are those? In addition, I really love the spooky chandelier and the incorporation of the silhouettes! And check out that dessert display! Candy corn, caramel apples and Halloween treats never looked so good! I'll be dressing up my little man tonight for Halloween! He's going as Peter Pan! So tell me, what will you be getting into?

Oh I love it! The chandelier is perfect, and what a great example of a fun Halloween wedding. Candy was definitely the most exciting part of Halloween as a child, that is for sure! :)
