How about a Victorian-Gothic Sleepy Hollow Masquerade? It would take some real guts to use this board as inspiration for a wedding, but I can definitely imagine it as a fantastic Halloween party. Refinement meets decay, the macabre meets the glamorous. It is so creepily whimsical, and if someone had the inclination, I think it could work really well. Also, a big thank you to all the ladies who posted about Halloween weeks ago – all of your posts were big inspiration for this board!

Mood: macabre glamour
Palette: black, white, orange

    I attended school at Kylemore Abbey. I can vouch for its scariness/spookiness. Gorgeous, but everything down to the nuns who run the place, are downright scary!
