Halloween Party

Welcome to the party hosted by A Fanciful Twist. Visit her right hand sidebar for more participants.
Since my camera is unavailable at this moment, we will be visiting some rooms posted at Rate My Space.
You can NEVER go wrong with black and white. Classic style mixed with a little glam. Take a look!

I'm not a huge fan of skulls, but I like this glittery gal hanging by a bow, on the mirror.

White pumpkins that say, "boo" make a grand entrance. Simply draw or stencil a design on with black permanent markers. Easy as pie, (pumpkin pie that is!).
Adding a little color to a predominately black and white color theme looks great. The black and white grounds the look, and a little bit of color makes the arrangement pop. My favorite decor item, a glass jar. Grouped together with a little splash of orange.
Purple is also a good choice for an accent color with black and white. The silver goblets and candleholders add a sleek texture to this tablescape by Steph at Angelic Accents.
Orange....what is fall/Halloween without orange? Even if you prefer the classic black and white look, somewhere in your home you have to have orange. Just look at how inviting these large vases look filled with water and apples.


  HAPPY FALL!
