Super Chic Halloween Inspiration

Good morning, friends! I hope everyone had a fun Halloweekend and is looking forward to trick or treating this evening. This morning I’m loving this beautiful Halloween tablescape designed by Alli of Hooray last year. If you’re looking for last minute Halloween inspiration, this is perfect! Super simple with a color palette of all neutrals, a touch of sparkle and a few choice seasonal elements like mini pie pumpkins and gourds and you can easily transform your tablescape into an unexpectedly pretty Halloween celebration. Don’t you just love this?

Friday Link Love

Happy Friday, friends! I hope everyone had a great week and is looking forward to a fun-filled weekend leading up to Halloween on Monday. My weekend is looking like it’s going to shape up to be pretty low-key and lazy, and I’ll definitely be working hard to stay warm. It’s already dipping into the 30s today! Have fun prepping your tricks and treats and I’ll see you back here on Monday! xoxo

Party Palette: A Spooky Halloween

I thought I’d kick off the Halloween weekend with a color palette inspired by a spooky, haunted Halloween feel. But we’re skipping the orange and black here and you’re not going to find any black cats or Jack O’Lanterns. Here it’s all about a soft, ethereal feel with a decided Gothic touch. Don’t you just love Halloween? Here’s my little ode to the beautiful side of this celebration of the spirits.

DIY Autumn Leaves Table Runner

I love fall, don’t you? It’s just the perfect season – the weather is crisp, you can pull out your favorite scarves again, and it’s time to ask your friends and family to share meals around your table. It’s Chelsea here, from Lovely Indeed, with a quick fall DIY that will make your next dinner gathering picture perfect. We’re bringing nature inside with a super-simple autumn leaf table runner!

All you’ll need is some spray adhesive, some fine glitter (I used Martha Stewart glitter in Copper, Smoky Quartz, and Florentine Gold), and some dried leaves, which you should be able to find in copious amounts underneath any tree!

It’s literally that easy! Top your runner with pumpkins and gourds for some autumnal extra credit – just be careful if you decide to use candles! Wouldn’t this runner be just perfect with a nice fall stew? Three cheers for fall! xoxo
