Halloween happy for family and friends is as easy as our 1, 2, 3 diy details.
Diy 1- Bottle wraps
Wrap cocktail bottles with black and white patterned papers, and tie with a knot of stripey twine, criss crossed a few times around the bottle to finish. Add in a pop of color with a coordinating straw, and voila - ready to serve.
Stylist tip -
Display chilled bottles as guests arrive on trays with scattered halloween candy.
Diy 2 - Bat Straws
Cut short, 3" long pieces of black ribbon. Tie into a knot on straws, like bat wings. Cut ends to make proper "wing" length on tied.
Pro Tip -
Pretty Posies on tables are as easy as filling seasonal drinking glasses and/or vases with autumnal blooms, like spray roses, lady's mantle, hypericum berry, and more.
Sweets Tip -
My sweet Gigi always tucked candy treats around her home, into her party table no matter how formal the occasion. It's a fun, friendly way to create small surprises for guests young and old alike.
Diy 3 - Bats in Forks
Cut paper bats with black construction paper, and tuck into fork tines for a silly, spooky touch at each setting.
Diy 4 - Sweets Trays
Cut patterned paper in halloween patterns, colors and hues and line your serving platters for a fun pop of color on the sweets table. Dress with sweets like cupcakes, cookies, and more.
