CURRENTLY COVETING | PARTY EDITION

HALLOWEEN ENTERTAINING ESSENTIALS


Halloween is almost here, are you “party ready”?  No, you say, well you’re in luck!  I’ve put together some of the best entertaining essentials right here at your fingertips and the best part is you can re-use almost all of it long after the holiday is gone!  

First up Lanterns!  I feel like they are always a good idea!  They give off a kind of spooky glowy lighting to really set the mood for Halloween.  The ones I’ve picked out are simple and I feel like these could be used year-round either indoors or on your porch.  I keep several around my house and they always come in handy for events.

When it comes to table settings or food display areas, I always like to have a combination of high and low serving pieces to create dimension and height.  I picked this marble pedestal because as you know marble is so in right now, but it’s also classic and I like the way the gray streaking almost looks like spider webs.  The black organic serving dishes are perfect for your low serving piece.  This may look familiar to you if you’ve been following along with the blog.  I use this for quite a few of the photos you see and I can truly say that it is a nice sturdy piece and you’re going to love it or at least I do anyway!

Instead of doing the same old orange, black, and white every year I decided to glam it up a bit and add hints of orangey copper in with just a twinge of silver detailing.  Copper is such a popular item but it can be a little overwhelming to do everything in copper.  That’s why I only chose to use it for the flatware, wine glasses, and the punch bowl.  The spider web plates have a little bit of copper detailing but the majority of it is black so it breaks it up a bit.

For festiveness, I thought that the paper straws and bat confetti would be the perfect addition to the soiree without being too in your face.  Don’t get me, wrong guys, I love Halloween.  In fact, I start looking forward to it in January but having everything with Halloween patterns on it can really overwhelm a space and your guests.  Keep it simple, start with solid colors or natural finishes then add in little by little.  If it starts to get cluttered take a step back and remove some items to find the right balance.  Oh and I almost forgot, how cool are these marbled linen napkins?  I’ve never seen anything like these before but I really like them!  I think this was probably my favorite part of this post and they are currently in my shopping cart! All heart eyes!!!

I’ve listed all of my special finds for your convenience below.

I hope you enjoyed this post and as always thanks for reading!  Do you have any big party plans this Halloween?  I’d love to hear all about it!  Please feel free to post in the comments below.

Cheers- Ashley Nicole

  • Ok guys it’s “Friday night and I feel alright” 🎶 Name that song! Go! P.S. I’ll give you a little hint, it’s from the 90’s and it’s not by Michael Jordan.... Let’s see if you can guess 😏
  • This midi dress is “The Love of my Life” no really that’s what it’s called and it’s such a good staple. P.S. It now comes in mustard! 💛

  • I love stripes and have literally been gravitating towards them for everything in my wardrobe lately! So does this make me part zebra or tiger? 🤷🏼‍♀️❤️🦓 🐅

P.S. I’ve also been loving layered necklaces! You can shop this look via @LIKEtoKNOW.it or @21buttons_us •

Yesterday on the blog, I put a super simple DIY tutorial on framed greenery. These also make pretty gifts in case you need to pull together a last minute Mother’s Day present. Wishing y’all the best Sunday! 🌿❤️

  • Instagram would “succ” if it weren’t for you! Seriously guys, I mean it! I’m so thankful for you and your kind words, patience, and support! Thank you so much for following, liking, commenting, and interacting with my stories! Allowing me to get to know you as well as getting to know a little more about myself too if I’m honest! Thank you for being there, keeping me alive much like these succulents and helping me grow! Doing this is a learning process, but if it weren’t for you, I would have never found my true passion as a creator and for that I will forever be thankful! ❤️❤️❤️ .

  • I’ve been on a straw, raffia, and rattan binge here lately. I love the raw textures and natural colors. They also double as a pretty accessory lying around as home decor. What are your thoughts on this trend? 
Also, this cute jump suit was a steal under $30 and it comes in black!

  • Another lovely Farmer’s Market pic from this weekend! They have seriously upped their game on presentation and I really wanted that cool planter for my herbs! No I didn’t buy it (props only), but wouldn’t mind finding/buying one similar and stashing it in my office/craft room for 3 years before I actually put it to use... 😂 #vintagefinds #hoarder #guilty
