It’s one week to go until Halloween which means it’s time to start planning the party! Don’t think that the dressing up and decor is just for the kids, we’d like to think our shoot below is tastefully set up for both! The photographer on this shoot was Jemma Watts and the stylist was myself. We used a selection of 3M products for hanging items on the wall. Happy Halloween!
- Think about where you are going to be entertaining friends and family, this set-up would work perfectly well in the kitchen, dining room or living room, as all you need is a table for food/sweets and a wall/ceiling to hang accessories. There are so many fun Halloween pieces to choose from when it comes to decorating your space, we chose items such as lanterns as they’re fun and add drama to the room.
- Once you have decided on your items, you’ll need to work out which Command products would be most suitable. For our Halloween lanterns, we used the small decorating clips from Command; they are perfect for most Halloween decorations and novelty string lights.
- Our Halloween board is a fun addition to the wall; you could always use a chalkboard and write your own Halloween menu or cocktail menu for the adults! To hang it on the wall, we used the clear medium hooks from Command. Before you hang anything from the hook it is important that you check the weight that it can hold by looking at the front of the packet. This hook can hang up to 2 pounds, or 900 grams.
- The small newspaper bags are a quick and easy way to create some fun props for your party and best of all, they are made from recycled items. Using an old newspaper, cut out a rectangle shape, then fold it over and stick the side and bottom, cut up strips of black paper and fill up your little bags leaving little spikes sticking out of the top. To attach them to the wall or desk then we would recommend the poster strips from Command, they are also great for attaching unframed pictures or photos to your wall.
