When it comes to taking a theme and running with it, you’ll find that at the top of our list of favorite ways to celebrate. If your big day falls near October 31st, there’s endless opportunity for a holiday theme that doesn’t involve a black-and-orange color scheme or painted pumpkins.
We know what you’re thinking, and, yes, it is possible to send “Happy Halloween!” vibes out into the world in a stylish way that will leave your guests oohing and ahhing over your tasteful, fall celebration. The secret? You don’t have to go overboard on a theme to embrace it. Instead, focus on details that are special to you (whether that’s your gown, table centerpieces, or both!) and put a subtle spin on them by saying goodbye to ghosts and goblins and hello to inky hues, inventive cocktails, and florals fit for the season.
