Halloween is one of my favorite times of year. The heat of Summer is gone and the weather is cool with a slight chill in the air. The leaves have turned and fallen and with each step you take, they crunch under your feet. Then, there is the smell of baked goods in the air: pumpkin, cinnamon, and vanilla. This is the time of year where we all turn to our inner child and relish in the spooky, the haunted, and the elegance of darkness.
If this speaks to you and you are pondering the notion of a Halloween wedding, then I hope this board inspires you and your own wedding fete. Instead of kitsch, consider an elegant approach using white pumpkins, black and crystal bling, and the airiness of a spider’s web moving in the Autumn breeze. Enjoy and don’t forget to tune in on Friday for Halloween wedding goodness from Etsy!

Today’s Theme Thursday is definitely worth the wait (if I do say so myself). One of my favorite movies as a teenager was Beetlejuice. I loved the aesthetic and totally identified with Winona Ryder’s character, Lydia.
As we approach Halloween, I was reminded of the Halloween where I was Beetlejuice and how much fun it was and wanted to share a bit of that fun with you. Here is a bit Beetlejuice inspiration for you. I hope you enjoy.
I love Halloween. It’s my favorite holiday apart from Christmas. This old goth (sounds like a TV show) can’t get enough of the creepy and macabre that comes along with it. Today’s Theme Thursday is a bit of vintage inspired Halloween goodness. I have chosen to steer clear of the typical black and orange in order to show you how you can make for a great Halloween without all of the kitsch. If I had my druthers, this is what would be all over my place to celebrate the holiday. I found so much great stuff that I had to do two inspiration boards and a Etsy treasury. Enjoy!

You wouldn’t know it by going outside (nearly 100 degree heat most of the summer here in CO), but very soon, Fall will be upon us. If you’re like me, I relish the drop in temperature, the leaves changing color, and let’s not forget, Halloween!
When it comes to Halloween weddings, many couples go over the top with an orange and black palette complete with a haunted house and others go very subtle using things like white pumpkins and a color scheme that doesn’t involve orange and black. I have put together a treasury that I think is a bit in the middle of these two ideals. You can add a flair for the traditional Halloween macabre to your day and still have an air of elegance about it. My personal favorite in this treasury are the wine bags. What’s yours?
