Hi lovely readers, I’m Tee and I started my blog, Beauteeful Living as a way to share my creative passions and to document events happening in my little world, a “bubble” best described as Beauteeful Living. To me, “beauteeful” stands for finding “beauty” in each of our own lives. I’m not only referring to the grand things and events. I mean the everyday simple things and moments that we often overlook. People are at the center of what matters in my world. I could be happy in my backyard, swatting mosquitoes away, if it means I’m there hanging with my favorite people. These people definitely include my husband (college sweetheart) and our two sweet and sassy daughters!
Before I start, I’d like to share my feature pick from last month’s Holiday Craftacular Fall link up! This image came from Lauren at Blesser House.
Isn’t this room above simply gorgeous! To see more from Lauren’s home tour, you can visit her post HERE.
Back to my post:
Being that Halloween lands on a Saturday this year, my husband and I decided to throw a Halloween party in our home. Actually, we’re throwing two parties, to be exact. Why two? Well, our youngest turns 5 in a week. Being that her birthday is so close to Halloween, we decided to throw her a Halloween costume party this year! The party in the morning will be for her local buddies from school and friends from the neighborhood. The party in the evening will be for our family and friends traveling afar. Yes, it’s going to be a long and crazy day and evening but I know she’s going to be so happy to see family and friends at her parties.
Here’s a peek at the “Spooky Drink Bar” I created for her party. By the time Halloween rolls around, I’m sure I’ll have modifications made. I must say, though, I’m pretty satisfied with the way this display came out.
Here are some close up photos of items that help make this “Spooky Drink Bar” complete:
1) Dracula’s Pub light and Home Sweet Home coffin favor boxes – This light fixture actually lights up when plugged in. Aren’t those “coffins” more cute than morbid? 😉
2) “Poison” Drink Dispenser – I bedazzled our drink dispenser by adding glittery tape and a large Halloween-themed drink sticker. You can use apple cider or iced tea as your “poison” of choice. 🙂
3) Bottles dressed up with Halloween-themed stickers. I purchased a set of stickers from the local Dollar store. Love how they totally transform the look and feel of these bottles. I’m just using these bottles as props.
4) “Poisonous” water bottles – For this look, I simply found card stock with skull and bone prints and cut them to size to cover the original water bottle label.
5) Creepy Flower Centerpiece – Nothing like bony hands sticking out to enhance this Halloween floral centerpiece.
5) Light up skull and plastic eyeballs. Both items came from the good ‘ole local Dollar store. 🙂
