A Bit of Hocus Pocus

It's no secret that we leave a trail of sparkle where ever we go.... and we mean this literally. Any space occupied by MBM, whether it be a carpet, hardwood floor, back yard or venue each finds itself embedded with glitter and rhinestones from our past orders and events!

So... when it comes time for Halloween, a normally darker and spooky holiday, we wanted to add a little hocus pocus of our own to this Day of the Dead!  There's no reason all Halloween decorations should be are few ways to dress up the holiday for all of you Halloween Queens.

Below are two very different invitations that can be used for Halloween themed events. The more formal of the two is the black pocket feather invitation, trimmed with black rhinestones. This was created for one of our gorgeous October brides, perfectly showcasing her love of Halloween.

The second of the two is an orange folder, with orange design paper and a black shimmer matte. The inside of the invitation showcases 5 different Halloween fonts, to give the invitation depth. The matching insert is perfect for an RSVP or in this case additional details. No Halloween invitation is complete without the sparkly orange and black bow.

Of course Halloween is showcased best by decorations. Here are some DIY ideas that are sure to make Halloween Sparkle!

The sparkle witch has was made with shimmer material. Additions include sparkle leaves, black flowers with shimmer stamens, black tulle roses, a sparkle spider, glitter pumpkin and wisteria flowers.

Something as simple as black satin chair wraps stuffed with  sparkle leaves, feathers and branches can transform your Halloween decor. They are accented by a spider web table cloth.

Dressing up your mantle in all things that glitter is an easy way to add depth to your decor. Glitter leaves, candles, skulls, arrangements and tea lights in purple and orange are all seen below. The candle holders are accented with rhinestone eyed skulls. 

The witch hat and Halloween tree below are made from cones, satin and sheer ribbon and rhinestones.

Lastly, you can adorn your pumpkin with black rhinestones and give it a glitter leaf base with slitter rose, wisteria and spider accents. Glitter infused tealights in orange are a perfect sidescape for this piece! 

Happy Halloween Everyone!!
