This year’s Halloween party theme was “Glitter-Ween”! This gave me a plausible excuse to paint, spray, or glue… orange, purple, green, and black glitter to my heart’s content… at least until February that is. Here are some decorating ideas from my glitter-splosion event!
The black painted console was the perfect stage for the “candy-bar” buffet. One small glittered bell wreath kept it from appearing too top heavy. An orange spider-web runner lined and protected the painted top.
My glitter garland remade craft filled in the background of the smorgasbord. Candlesticks held glittered pumpkins at visible heights behind witch-cats who guarded the sweets.
Theme colored candy filled bowls were accented with pumpkins, ghosts, and bats from my foam puppet / food pick craft. LED candles eerily lit the scene safely, where no normal candle would have dared been set.
Spiders climbed the treat tower hung with their “spider-web” doilies.
Monochromatic jelly bean cups sat next to a variety of cupcakes on various lifts and levels.
Glittered brooms camouflaged another treat tower’s sides while a shimmering welcome beckoned at the top.
In the breakfast room, a wooden tree painted black, was trimmed with my garlands craft and my ornaments from scraps craft. The tree skirt of shimmering purple fabric was repurposed from Mardi-Gras. The tablecloth had hand-sewn bead and fringe trimming.
The centerpiece tree was flanked with hand-painted papier-mâché witch hats, and the felt ones featured favors from my foam shapes craft.
The chandelier was trimmed with ribbon and my friendly bats craft, and then draped with my pumpkin tassels craft.
Another pumpkin tassel dangled from lamp. The pictured pumpkin basket will be featured in an article very soon.
Glittered pumpkins sat snugly in a ficus tree, next to a window hung with glittered “BOO” signs.
Another window framed my suspended “BOO” wreath craft that featured some of the same glittered shapes as the garland in the living room. (It was merely outlined in the photos due to conditional backlighting which is why this picture is here.)
A side table held a glitter pick arrangement and pumpkin lamp that’s been glowing since my childhood. Fabric witch feet were tucked into a vintage basket held with treats. My foam shape sign craft hung in the background.
Another surface in the room featured more of the friendly witch menagerie guarding one of my mixed media paintings. Changing up your artwork seasonally is a great way to feature your whimsical creations.
The ceramic pumpkin was made before I was born. It’s easy to add personal touches with mementos by nestling them into your themed décor.
Even the staircase was decorated with foot wide green mesh ribbon, more glittered garlands, glowing luminarias, flying bats, and crawling spiders.
Have a Safe and Happy “Glitter-Ween”!
