This ghoulish holiday season I have partnered with Pier 1 to bring a little Fright and Delight to our home. Halloween is a favorite in our house and since I am the first of my local siblings to have children, we often have family join us for our candy filled escapades with the boys.
I love this tradition and while I love to entertain, it’s so nice to find pieces that blend seamlessly between day and night… or in other words, they look good during the day while they are on display and when night falls and guests roll through, these holiday pieces do double duty and serve their festive purpose!
The skull ice bucket is gorgeous and looks amazing all on its own, but I adore it with flowers for a bit of the macabre that is much more delight than fright.
And when it’s time to gather round for a night filled with fun for those young at heart (and actually young), I dress things up for an evening that caters to the rest of us as well.
With sweets pouring in by the pound, I love to have other options available for those who prefer to keep it light, yet still indulge.
Everything comes together seamlessly and easily with the perfect blend of holiday and everyday party ware. The spooky cloth is the perfect little spooky table runner to add just a bit of that something special.
Mini popcorn balls and a cheese plate are a bit more my speed.
The champagne flutes are stunning, and have me wanting to work black into every party I have, forever more… Not to mention they make a signature drink of the most deadly variety stand out from the crowd.
The skull shot glasses just happen to be perfect for serving up sinful dippers, like pumpkin spice cookie butter, that pairs well with apple slices and bananas. Still sweet and delicious but perhaps a tad bit more sophisticated than standard Halloween treats.
A mix of frightful and delightful along with some amazing everyday party ware turned out to be a perfect balance here. I have a feeling these beauties may even stick around well beyond their traditional season.
Of course no amazing party goes without great music, for your spooky listening pleasure I have rounded up some of my favorite frightful songs with my Ultimate Halloween Bash Mixtape. It will definitely please a diverse audience, with a bit of something for everyone…
