Happy Halloween!

Everyone likes scary, spooky, ghoulish stuff on Halloween and we will be no exception this evening!
But as we also love stylish pretty things, we had to share these gorgeous pumpkin inspirations with you found on one of our current favourite blogs Heart And Handmade facebook page, if you love pretty images you really should hook up to them. 
I really wish I had seen these images before, as this would work perfectly in my own home, but now stored in the ideas file for next year!
These images via Heart and Handmade are from Chatelaine, another fabulous website I have just discovered and now will be spending even more time on the computer, sigh!
Happy trick and treating and I am hoping for chocolate 🙂

An Alternative Pretty White Halloween

After the wonderfully staged and ghoulish Strictly came on tonight, there was much excitement eminating from Twinks, not only practising her fantastic and rather worrying Shakira dance moves but also a hugely animated excitement about Halloween.
So I finally succumbed to rummaging in my understairs cupboard and digging out our traditional spooky decorations which consist of:
 A Whittards ceramic orange pumpkin and a Whittards white ghost tealight holder
My pumpkin fairy lights and our purple and black hanging bat garland
All very tasteful of course and just enough to add a bit of spookiness to the house for the Halloween week! 
I did see some rather lovely glittery yet spooky door signs in Dunnes this week, but refrained already knowing my bill on kitting Twinks out with a basic winter wardrobe was going to be quite high!
Trying to find a real pumpkin here in Spain takes a master class in driving around all the local supermarkets hoping to spot an object that resembles something round and orange.
I suppose this will be my mission on Monday, I may strike lucky at Supersol or El Campo, if not I am considering how a carved aubergine will fair?! 
It already has a ghost shape so this is my plan b!  In fact I could perhaps start a new trend of aubergine ghosts covered with gold glitter!
Tonight I have found some rather lovely white pumpkin images, I am sure they have another name as they are part of the squash family, but living in a country where we cannot easily find an orange pumpkin the chances of being able to find a white one is non existent!
But it is always so refreshing to see and share something different.  I found the first photo on pinterest a few weeks ago and love use of the white pumpkin as a ceiling pendant, although what practical use this has I have no idea but design does not have to always be practical!
Tonight on one of my current favourite blogs, Heart Handmade UK, they are sharing a gorgeous white pumpkin Halloween post which I could not resist sharing with you.
I love the use of the Liberty fabrics and gold teacups with the mint accents, definitely a popular colour combination for 2013 weddings and very fresh and pretty and what a lovely alternative to the orange and blacks that we are being bombarded with albeit I do love it!
So here is wishing you all a wonderful and spooky week and a Happy Halloween!

Halloween Party Inspiration in Marbella

I am not quite sure what happened in the past week but we have suddenly gone from summery weddings to spooky Halloween?! 
Perhaps it was the onset of rain at the end of September followed closely by the arrival of the 1st October and now everywhere I look there are witches, ghosts, vampires and cobwebs and this is just my rather neglected house!  Well not the witches, etc but certainly the cobwebs 🙂 
I love this time of year, wedding world finally calms down here and it is like the spring, all the suppliers and contractors here peek out their wedding nests where they have been holed up for the best part of six months and start to socialise again, chat about our summer and generally catch up with each other.  I think tweeting would be a good description of this actually without the twitter element it is very similiar as we all connect again!
October is an exciting month, for one it is my birthday which I always manage to extend to a 10 day event and of course we have Halloween 🙂 
I love decorating my house for Halloween, well any excuse to be honest to decorate, and am still in love with the glitter pumpkins so I fear I will be hoovering up lots of glitter again this year but would not be without it!
If you are planning a Halloween party do contact us, we have everything to make a spooky occasion even spookier, from black table linens and chair covers with orange or gold chair sashes, glittery pumpkins, fabulous lighting, spooky stationery ideas and trick and treat candy bars!
