Eternal Love – A Halloween Anniversary Party

LOTS of details went into this Halloween environment! If you’re like me, you want to see those details for more than a split second in a video. So for those of you who do, here ya go!Scroll through. You might see something you missed!👻

This Halloween dinner party is in honor of a couple who took the “‘til death us do part” portion of their vows to the next level! Their eternal love goes on!

For anyone who loves the TV show “Ghosts”, you will appreciate the fact that the groom died with no pants…just like Trevor!😆

The proverbial “old ball & chain”!😉

Time stands still for this couple. Or maybe he’s just wondering what time the honeymoon starts!😜

I bought the cage on clearance at Hobby Lobby years ago…and have never used it until this year!🙄 I think it’s a butterfly cage, but here it is occupied by a bat, a crow, spiders, and skulls among the mossy branches.

Fun graveyard marker salt & pepper shakers from one of my favorite shopping haunts (see what I did there?), Charmed House Interiors, in Kansas City’s West Bottoms district.

A murder of crows peck the eyes out of skulls across the table. (These are candles from this year’s Halloween decor at Charmed House Interiors!)

The whole concept for this tablescape began with this haunted table runner from Tuesday Morning that depicts a cauldron of bats 🦇 swarming over haunted houses and trees toward the ominous full moon.

Rapacious rats gnaw at bone soup.

Sorry. I know it’s gross, but I couldn’t resist!💀

These ceramic apparitions were found on clearance at a local grocery store. I bought them all! (About 30!)

Remarkably large spider vs boa constrictor. Who’s your money on?🕷️🐍

Again…gross. Again…sorry.🫤

Hard to find good help these days. I guess any ol’ ghoul will do!

Skeleton dessert charcuterie is next level in the Third Circle of Hell (gluttony).

“Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil”…or be forever cast in gold!

A little something-something “hanging out” on the side.

I have all kinds of crazy ideas for Halloween in this site!

  1. Oh Alycia what a fantastic ghoulish display you’ve created! I just love the cage and everything else! Those candle votives are so cute I can see why you bought a bunch. I absolutely loved the video!! First rate all the way!


  2. Oooooo, Alycia, what a fun Halloween dinner party! I have to admit my favorite is the charcuterie dessert tray. You must have had a blast creating this one! ❤️ 👻


  3. SPooktacular! I love all the bowls with bone (a-parts), and the skelly fruit tray holding the Babe Ruth. You are a creative genius, with both props and prose!


  4. Your table is so awesome…I can imagine a witches brew (with some hallucinating potion) served to your guest to bring everything to life! 🤣🤣🤪 walking dead for sure! I’m outta there!


  5. Talk about fun! You’ve gone all out to make this table just that. My October tables have all been very much the same with little changes here and there. It would be such fun to create with you.


  6. This is over the top fantastic! Isn’t it amazing what a simple purchase like a table runner will do for creativity? I love that runner, by the way. I don’t even know where to begin to comment on this. I enlarged all of the pictures so that I could get as much detail as possible, but I know it’s not the same as being there. The bat hanging upside down in the birdcage is truly inspired. The skulls, the bones, the skeletons, it’s perfect! Honestly, you need to have a cocktail party, or a coffee or something just to show this off. This is meant for more eyes than just ours. I have only seen the British version of “Ghosts,” but I did get the Trevor reference. You are so clever! I really wish that I could see this in person, at night, to get the full effect. Brilliant! Happy Halloween!


  7. Oh Alycia I have the shivers!!! As others have said before me, you haven’t missed a single detail! (The salt and pepper shakers are fabulous!) Happy Halloween to you and the long-dead lovers! 😊
