Board #305 | All Hallows Eve

Happy Halloween all! Last year I did a more formal, Victorian-Gothic style Halloween board, but this year I thought I do something a little more playful and sweet. I was largely inspired by vintage Halloween cards and toys, and thought crepe paper streamers would be a perfect decorative element for this inspiration board (whether for a wedding or just a Halloween party).

Mood: Halloween whimsy
Palette: black, orange, white

    I adore this! If I didn’t have my heart set on a certain style already, I would so be talking the man into this.

  • Lisa from Blush says:

    Kathryn, love your board today. I have to admit that I created a Halloween wedding inspiration board for today because I so loved the one you did last year! Thanks for your continuous inspiration… xoxo, Lisa

    I just wanted to say that you are so incredibly skilled at creating these boards and you provide daily inspiration. Thanks so much for all your hard work!

  • DeadmansLog says:

    I adore your boards in general, but as I’m having a ‘hallowedding’ this was particularly fun for me.

    Would you happen to have any insight into the flowers used in that bouquet? It’s brilliant.

  • Kathryn says:

    Hi deadmanslog,

    The bouquet in the top row is made of white hydrangea and black-beaded flowers. The bouquet in the bottom row is white sweetpeas, narcissus, ornithogalum and black privet berries. I hope that helps!


  • DeadmansLog says:

    Thank you, Kathryn. That helps tremendously!

    The entire board is fabulous, but the pennant & lace photograph and the bouquet up top just grabbed me.
