HOW TO: Throw a Sophisticated Halloween Soirée
As we all know, a lot of times Halloween décor can be a bit on the tacky side. If you are
looking to add a little class to the most “spooktacular” holiday of the year, keep reading for a
few of our favorite tips, tricks, and treats.
An easy way to make your Halloween décor more sophisticated is to keep things minimal
and stick to a simple color palette. A classic black and white palette with a few pops of dark,
moody colors will help set an air of mystery, while not going overboard. This was my thought
for the table set-up. I stuck to black and white overall décor and then added color just with the
floral arrangement. Some of the flowers I chose were black calla lilies and scabiosa, dark
magenta coxcomb, for their colors while I chose blue thistle and safari sunset for their texture.
I wanted all the pumpkins to look unique, but cohesive. This is why I chose to paint them all in a black or white matte paint with black or white accessories. These are all do-it-yourself projects and can enjoyable be done by the whole family. Also, these were done with craft pumpkins, but can be done with fresh pumpkins once they are back in season.
