Halloween Spider Party

I found this incredible web from Oriental Trading and I knew I HAD to throw a spider party! I kept everything black and white tones, I feel like there is something a little unnerving about colorless Halloween decor. It reminds me of horror books I read growing up, someone would find a corpse and the body was always described something along the lines like “skin as paper, translucent and drained of all blood. With their black eyelashes lying on their cold skin giving a startling contrast”.  Geez, I  LOVE Halloween!

Spooky Halloween Tablescape

My favorite time of the year has arrived! Oh Halloween, how I’ve missed you! I set up my Halloween tablescape and I’m SO feeling it this year! I wanted a cemetery feel so I incorporated lots of moss, dying flowers, mini tombstones, skulls and ravens! I thought a silver, purple and black palette would be perfect as well. If you want to see more on how I created this Halloween tablescape stick around!

Dr Pepper Party

For years it was a running joke that my dad’s side of the family loved Dr Pepper so much they should have an IV of it put in their arm. I’m no different, it’s definitely my drink of choice so I thought it’d be a fun theme! Can I confess something? I feel like this is a safe space so here goes…I keep my Dr Pepper bottles in the car during the summer. Something about the sun heating the drink makes the carbonation burn SOOO good. Haha or as my 3 year old would say, “That’s some spicy pop!” Now that we’ve got the weirdness out of the way let’s move onto the party! I let the brand’s color guide me on my color palette with the iconic burgundy, black and white but I threw some bright red to brighten it up!

I had a ton of fun scouring the internet for Dr Pepper recipes and found an amazing one for Dr Pepper Caramel popcorn. In the end, I don’t think there was enough Dr Pepper to reduce to a syrup so the flavor was very slight. I’m not going to include that recipe since it didn’t really deliver the flavor I was hoping for. However, I’m going to make some adjustments to it and if I can get it just right I’ll include it later! Shelly collaborated with me again and created the most delicious Dr Pepper flavored desserts. More details below!
