Delightfully spooky

It’s spooky season! Normally I don’t do a lot of decorating for holidays other than Christmas (small house = small amount of storage!), but with all of us staying at home so much more this year, it seemed like a fun way to get into the spirit of things. I love John Derian’s aesthetic, so his collection for Target was a delightful surprise. Some skeletal branches on the table, a few John Derian trays and eyeball coasters, and some floating candles? Poof! Spooky, creepy, Gothic-y good fun.

I tried Mallory Fletchalls floating candle DIY idea as featured in Domino, and it was well worth the effort. I used these battery-powered candles, and hung them from the ceiling in my dining room with this clear fishing line. Now I feel like I’m in a haunted house and/or the great hall at Hogwarts — both of which are a total win this time of year, don’t you think? I especially like that these candles come with a remote control, which makes turning them on and off a breeze.

Even though Halloween will look different this year, I hope you all have a spooky good time this weekend. Pop some popcorn, get dressed up, and watch Hocus Pocus! And may I also suggest this awesomely witchy cocktail? Happy Halloween!
