A Spooky Wedding Shower

Bradley’s cousin will be getting married at the end of December, so I helped throw a wedding shower for the couple recently.  They love halloween, and since the shower was at the end of October, we decided to merge the two for a spooky shower theme.

I had most of the decorations already, since my normal Halloween decor involves lots of black and silver.  In the foyer, we put out favor bags with the couple’s favorite candies inside.

I put paper bat silhouettes in all of the lampshades in the living room.

I was able to reuse the potions bottles I had made for a Harry Potter baby shower as a centerpiece on the breakfast table.

I cut up a felt spider web placemat to add to the corners of the doorway leading into the living room.

On the gift table is the cute corsage my co-hostess made for the guest of honor.

I found this banner at Target and used a chalk marker to add MR & MRS to it.  I felt like we needed something to bridge the gap between it feeling like a halloween party versus a wedding shower.

Some mini skulls nestled in creepy cloth.

My co-hostess made this to hang on the front door.

For the food table, I found a spider web table cloth at Big Lots and layered it over a silver tablecloth for contrast.  The paper bats were flying across the window in the background.

I made Pecan Pie Muffins with a Maple Buttercream Frosting and grape salad.

I also made bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with goat cheese.

My co-hostess made these hilarious vampire donuts and some apples with toffee dip.

Our other co-hostess made the monster green punch.

I think everyone had a good time and the couple got some great gifts to start off their new life  together.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
