HALLOWEEN DECORATING FOR A PARTY!

DING DONG - THE WITCH IS DEAD...


HARRODS HALLOWEEN DISPLAY IN LONDON IN 2010

AND AGAIN IN 2015 - 
SIMPLY AWESOME


Meanwhile, back in Southern California - 
I'm preparing for the 1st Annual Black Hat Society
Halloween Party - at my house!

and taking advantage of the decorating, 
Mr. B decided to add a party of his own...
so with two events upcoming - I decided to pull out the stops!

Its also the first entertaining we have done since the remodel,
so, I invited a couple of friends to get into their party gear
and welcome our guests.
they were more than willing to don party hats and their best ruffled collars

and create a welcome for guests






I confess I hate pumpkin slime... gives me shudders...
so I am more than happy to go faux

an added plus is that they are reusable...

I made the wreath last year from what I had laying around.
I LOVE him...

he looks a bit cuckoo...

Welcome Witches...
what are you waiting for..


park your brooms here...

Matilda got dressed up just for you...



she's quite old but has kept her figure...
 she has some lovely accessories...




and rather good shoes...

for a witch

In the living room,  the Ravens have set up residence

pecking tediously at the old typewriter...
the same word
over and over




















The dining room was the perfect spot for the witch's cupboard...


and lots of candles...





it was the perfect place for the puppeteer...


There's not much room for decoration in the kitchen...


Just enough room for a little chair and my ugly little pumpkin head doll...




and maybe
a few pumpkin votives...

and a little something for the island...


I had fun with the family room mantle this year...







 I added a tree created from curly willow branches stuck in an old crock...

and hung brightly colored paper lanterns and fans

and vintage style halloween lanterns










I added just a few final touches in the powder room...





 and some party lighting for the patio...




The stage is set...
now I just need the guests to arrive...
