Nothing gets me more excited than Halloween. I prep myself early on in September. Getting scary movies ready, dusting off my fall pumpkin decor and buying up every white mini pumpkin I can find. I glitter everything not nailed down and break out my collection of vintage and modern skull decor. Even my toddler wants to go scare herself at the local CVS where a tall werewolf man hollers every time she walks by. But the best by far, is when our fancy acrylic chandeliers transform a fun party to a spooky gothic party. Here is where they truly shine — in ways I had hoped when I first designed them.
1. DECORATE WITH BLACK AS NEUTRAL AND THE MAIN COLOR. YES I SAID IT — A NEUTRAL.
This spooky, gothic halloween party by Fern Maple Events incorporated a custom fancy acrylic chandelier in black shine. What made this easy for Natalie of Fern Maple Events, was the ability to have the party backdrop where she needed it, not where there was a plug. Since our chandeliers are non-lighted, this helped her define the party space and not be limited by cords and plugs.
2. USE METALLICS TO ADD DRAMA AND LIGHT TO YOUR PARTY
Use trendy accents like gold, copper and even rose gold, to elevate your dramatic punch. Gone are the days where a Halloween party has to be just orange, black and green. Really any color of the rainbow can work, if you use black or metallics as an anchor.
3. USE NON-TRADITIONAL COLORS FOR YOUR PARTY SPACE
The use of turquoise in Halloween right now means so many things, including sending a signal to children and parents that your house is an allergy free zone (nuts, etc.). I really love the use of turquoise to pair with black for a halloween party. Something about those two colors creates a modern, chic vibe. (fun tip: switch out our clear crystals for a black crystal for a more fall/winter feel.)
Which chandelier would use for Halloween? I'm thinking maybe our hot pink one could pair well with silver, black and some glittery skull decor. Maybe Glam Barbie Zombies. Leave me a comment on your halloween ideas. Maybe I can help!
