Of course I wish I took more photos but here are some of what I did get:
Fireplace with a cauldron in front and spiders climbing up one side
Side view of the mantle
The bookcases were covered in spiderwebs
The furniture was covered in black fabric and ripped cheesecloth
The mantle was covered with cheesecloth I hand dyed black. The blood candles were on one side and the black flowers on the other. The cut out bats went up the wall and along the mirror
We didn't have one light on in the whole apartment, just candles everywhere.
Along the hall were the gravestones I made from foam core. I used names and dates from the Salem Witch Trials.
Every frame I had in the house that could be switched out was. I found creepy portraits, antique insect sketches and lots of fun things on the internet. These two scary people were in the bar area.
A close up of the lab. I took old jars filled them with colored water and cleaned out my fridge of old food items to put in the jars. A black light behind made them all glow.
Breadsticks shaped like bones and tomato soup shooters to look like blood in the test tubes were front and center.
For dessert I made monster finger cookies and brownies in the shape of coffins.
A close up
Of course like everything that takes planning the night went by so fast and all that hard work for months before was over in a few short hours. But it was so worth it and I would do it again in a heartbeat- I love any excuse to go all out and over the top.
I hope you all had a fabulous Halloween!!
