Halloween isn’t just for children anymore. Breathe life into an otherwise dead party with style and elegance by using dark and rich colors. To emphasize a bit of glamour, use moody colors like smoke and charcoal gray, burgundy red and rich black tones. Not only will these tones compliment each other, but they will also create a sultry atmosphere.
Satisfy appetites by serving your guests to a delightful splendor among a rich spread. Cover your dining tables with delicate linens to create the perfect backdrop for delicious entrees. Layer shades of darker tones for your dinnerware to create texture.
