What a wickedly wonderful Halloween week we’ve had. Culminating in a Baroque themed banquet hosted here at Number 27. Well, I say banquet, more like industrial size stew and roast potatoes for 20. We had great fun this week styling the dining table with decayed dinner guests and other gothic touches. We dressed the table with black, lacy, spider web runners, bones, skulls, spray-painted trails of black ivy and candle-light.
We added black, glossy charger plates with Talking Tables Party Porcelain Baroque Classical Range paper plates over the top. We placed matching paper napkins in this fabulously, lux-looking range with its rich reds and smoky grey florals, to the side of each place setting, and then finished with pops of blood red waxy candles on our mismatched candle-holders.
We posed for portraits and hung out with, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Diddled, our skeletal friends, whilst awaiting the arrival of 16 deathly dinner guests. We then devoured a very boozy stew (containing 3 bottles of wine and half a bottle of brandy), followed by Death by Chocolate Fondue. Entertainment included, two pairs of tights and an apple, after-dinner mint facials and a Taste the Difference Cheese & Bacon Quiche (don’t ask).
Whilst the rest of the house looked like this….
A very happy Halloween had by all in this household. And on to a new week. And now all that’s done and dusted, it’s the official run up to CHRISTMAS!! Yay!! Bring it on…xxx
