Event Description

Once guests stepped on the walkway entrance, they knew they were in for a Spooktacular evening.  On the lawn was a giant BOO sign made from lights and surrounding the front door was a massive black, silver, and purple balloon installation.  The white home was accented with purple uplighting. A zombie character sitting on a throne chair scared guests as they walked in, and a witch character greeted them with signature swirly champagne drinks.  Throughout the first floor of the house were specific decorated areas.  The first area was a ominous large black tree constructed out of pool float sticks, a very scary animatronic character, and copious amounts of pumpkins, candles, and florals.  All the way up the glass staircase were paper bats.

The home’s dining room area was decorated with a wooden table and a complete setup of a “dead” dinner party.  Here, the little details mattered with the skeleton bowls and lots of cobwebs in addition to the skeletons and candles. The living area’s couches were adorned with skeletons in varying positions and candelabras, flower arrangements and of course cobwebs were strewn throughout. The DJ and dance floor area had witches’ hats hanging from the ceiling, in addition to more scary decorations. The fortune teller was a great part of the entertainment, and she enjoyed a line of people waiting to hear their futures all night long.

The backyard had multiple areas of interest including the bats hanging from the ceiling, twenty or so skeletons in various positions throughout the yard, and a spooky boat sitting in the pool. The flower arrangements were unbelievably gorgeous with their Halloween hues of orange, purple, red and black flowers, black feathers, cobwebs, and candles.  On the patio, guests enjoyed the taco bar selections, which was cleverly placed inside a coffin.  And of course, they imbibed heavily from the selections at the outdoor bar.

The piece de resistance of the event was 6-foot skeleton charcuterie board, which had a wide selection of meats, cheeses, fruits, crackers, and olives. This was placed on the massive kitchen island.  Guests thoroughly enjoyed partaking from this most interesting spread. The tombstones and the very large, beautiful centerpiece were perfect additions.

To satiate their sweet tooth, various candies and deadly cupcakes were placed in black shelving. One the most talked about features, was the shiny, sparkly black and purple candied apples.

The existing wine room was transformed into a ‘mad’ scientist’s laboratory, where beakers, test tubes, skulls, bones, and all sorts of décor adorned the space and shelves.  The scientist character asked guests if they needed blood from the alcohol infused bags or a perhaps a shot of courage from alcohol infused syringes.

The party was fun, unique, and imaginative and had guests entertained well into the wee hours of the morning.  It was truly “Spooktacular”!
