Halloween Atmosphere

Halloween Atmosphere: Designs and Crafts

Whether you love it for the costumes or the candy, Halloween is the fall holiday that allows you to decorate as if your house was the set for a horror film. I’ve had a blast engaging in fall-specific activities these past few week and I’m so happy it’s finally Halloween! Here are some of my adventures and creations over the past weeks:

I had such a blast doing the invitations and banner (above) for the Himmels’ party! They were even sweet enough to include me in their DIY candy corn candles craft. I love how ours turned out — we used pumpkin-scented votive candles in the center of the Ball jars to give a rustic, comfortable look and smell. So easy and perfect for fall evenings!

And now, just because I really love Halloween, here are three fun facts!

  1. The first jack-o’-lanterns were actually made from turnips!
  2. Houdini (the famous magician) died on Halloween in 1926, but not from a magic-trick-gone-wrong. His appendix ruptured after a student dealt several heavy blows to Houdini’s abdomen.
  3. The fear of Halloween is called Samhainophobia — stay inside and read a nice book tonight if this applies to you :)

And now for my fashion picks! It was recently joked that I should moved to London with my boyfriend and soak up some international culture while I’m still free to roam as I please. While the suggestion wasn’t entirely serious, I have been absolutely loving London-inspired fashion! Check out some of my favorite finds:

While I love each of these pieces individually, they make a fab looking outfit! I couldn’t help but feature the Butter London “Wellies” that I talked about briefly in my nail polish of the month post as well, such a unique chartreuse! Hope to be back and posting on a more regular basis as before! xoxo
