Halloween Theme Decorating Ideas


I love Halloween!  Maybe it is due to the fact that I was born at the end of October and I always planned Halloween Costume parties, or it is just a fun time to get dressed up and play a different character for the night.  No matter the reason, it I have always enjoyed any reason to host a fun party.  When I was a child, I lived in a 300 year old home that had one of the spookiest basements you can imagine, and guess what... that basement used to make the best haunted house.  I dreaded having to clean up all of the decor I brought down there, but it was well worth it.  
Today, I enjoy Halloween just as much.  Just to prove it, above is a photo from my own Halloween party last year.  Squishing about thirty of my friends into my humble abode was a blast.  


I am involved with the Ipswich Rotary Masquerade Ball for the third year in a row as original creator and head of decor and styling.

Here is a photo of the main ball room last year.  Spooking, black glitter candelabras are placed on each table with black glass stones scattered about and 10 candles at each table.  The lighting, by Boston Uplights changed throughout the night. The first year I had the lights placed in each window of the mansion, so that when guests arrived, the mansion glowed with an eerie purple glow.

Today, I created a new page on my web site that highlights many inspirational boards from fellow business owners that I found on the world wide web.  It is amazing how many Halloween wedding ideas there are or Halloween cocktail party drinks come up when Googled.  It is almost Hair Raising! :-)  If you want to check out the page of photos and inspiration boards, click here to visit that page.
