Halloween Teaser

18 Sep

I love Halloween! From the decorations to the foods to the costumes. That being said I’ve been trying to hold back until October before I posted about this spooky Holiday but I could not wait.

Just about every year for the past 10 years or so, my sister and I have a Halloween movie party where we don costumes, decorate the house and invite our friends over for snacks and scary films.

In the tradition of thrifty DIY-ers we make almost all of or decorations and props from scratch. It isn’t worth it to spend a small fortune on something for just one night a year and besides, we couldn’t afford it even if we wanted to.

Here is a little teaser from one of said parties. The year was 2009, the trend was Vampires in the biggest way. I chose a combined theme of True Blood and Twilight.

Image

Tablescape: Vase filled with stones then red crystals, branch (fell from a tree in our yard) spray painted black with artificial red apples hanging by string, surrounded by red candles and styrofoam “food for humans” sign.

Image

Table with the aforementioned food for humans (the vampire “food” was elsewhere). On that little netbook there we had the Twilight movie playing.

Image

Styrofoam “Merlottes Bar and Grill” signifying the drink station. (A true blood fan would get this)

Image

The drink station with “blood punch” (red sangria) taking centre stage.

Image

Directions to the Vampire “food”: Non homemade but very cheap props such as these are usually found everywhere (supermarket,hardware store,bookstores even) at this time of year.

Image

Blood red candles to help set the blood sucking mood. Inexpensive red tapers give a spooky feel when added to our pre-owned black candelabra. (Yes that’s a real family photo caught there in the corner).

Image

Hand painted gourds.

Image

In keeping with Twilight, a vase of red apples.

As mentioned, I love Halloween and I can’t wait to decorate this year. Hope to have a couple more Halloween posts between now and then.

Have an awesome day!
