Halloween Styling

I always love this time of year...with gorgeous fall colors, festive decorations, and an excuse to put on a creative costume I couldn't be more excited!

While Halloween decor is always fun (and often spooky), there is no reason why it can't be chic and glamorous too! Interested in how-to? The creative team at Bradshaw Styling was up bright and early this morning for a WBFF FOX 45 segment on "Halloween Styling."
Inspired by these images, our interns put together this storyboard.

We had so much fun creating fashionable Halloween decor and hope it inspires you as much as it inspires us. We chose a color palette of orange, black, and gold...of course we wanted to add glitz and glam to our theme.

Here, I discuss decorating tips with our host, Patrice. This fabulous white linen found at Table Toppers in Baltimore provided the perfect textured backdrop for our festive spread.

Styling Tip #1: Think outside the pumpkin.  Use push pins to create different designs
on your pumpkin like this chevron pattern...It is a lot less messy than using a knife!

Style Tip #2: Everything looks better in glitter! Select an assortment of small pumpkins. We chose to spray paint some of these gold, applied glue and sprinkled on some glitter.
A perfect addition to your next dinner party centerpiece!

 These fun paper props by Say Cheese Paper Props are adorable and we are 
still swooning over the gorgeous florals by our lovely friends at Crimson and Clover in Roland Park

Styling Tip #3: Details, details, details.  Notice the gold spiders tucked in the flowers? We spray painted spider rings gold and tucked them into our cupcakes for a spooky touch.
You can even add them to your costume later!

Don't these cupcakes from Sweet Bakery Baltimore look delicious? 
(We made friends with the FOX 45 crew by leaving them behind)! 

And look who stopped by to say hello after our segment...We always enjoy seeing the lovely weather lady, Ms. Candace Dold!

MANY thanks to all of our vendor partners.  We couldn't have done it without you!
