For this year’s Halloween Party, we decided to rent out the rooftop club house in our building. Much like our previous apartment, this gave me an indoor space to work with an outdoor space to work with in terms of decorating for the party. I like to have the inside area be a warm cheerful place and the outside area be a little darker creepier and spookier. So I put the orange and black decorations and the sparkly things inside the clubhouse area, and more of the skeletons headstones and zombie arms outside.
Personally, I tend to go for a “more is more” extravaganza of decorations. It is a party after all.
My favorite part of the decorations was the string of paper lanterns and paper fans across the room. I used a symbol S hook on each of the air vents in the room, with string between them and then threaded the lanterns on to the string. It easily had the biggest impact anything in the whole room.
There is a large shelf unit in the room that I couldn’t move. So I decided to turn it into a display case of various pumpkins.
One of the challenges I always run into is how to decorate around a TV in the room. Personally I tend to go for the cover it up angle.
The stacked pumpkin poles looked great. They provided some additional color higher up in the room.
I also prefer to keep the food inside, and instead put the drinks outside in ice buckets.
