An Elegant Halloween Party

As you know, I'm not one to get caught up in the spirit of Halloween. I hate to be a spoilsport, but it's just not my holiday. I don't eat much candy, and I'm not a fan of gory zombies or pointy-hatted witches. Compared to other holiday decorations, I find most Halloween decor to be cheesy and garish. But if I had to style a spooky soiree, I would definitely go light on the spooky and heavy on the glamorous. I'm drawn toward the enchanting mystery of costume balls and the dark and moody elegance of a black and white palette glowing with candlelight. This little Halloween-themed party, featured on Style Me Pretty, nails my ideal approach to Halloween decor right on the head. Love it, love it, love it!

Definitely a Halloween party I wouldn't mind being invited to! Also, the closest I come to dressing up is throwing on my Gryffindor tie, but here are my favorite costumes I've seen popping up on Pinterest the past few weeks: a little toy soldier, a French Bulldog clown, an ode to The Birds, and Vincent van Gogh. Happy Halloween!  xoxo, Bri
