I’ll be honest, we’re not the biggest Halloween fans around here. While we love a good excuse to over-indulge in candy while we dress up, we clearly don’t gravitate towards the darker color palette. So, when we came across these adorable black flamingos, our mid century obsessed spirits (get it? spirits?!) were so pumped!
We paired them with a few of our other favorite Palm Springs inspired Halloween decor ideas to create the perfect retro entryway. We also managed to find one of the coolest mid century exteriors (#housegoals) in Houston AND convince our friend, Rachael, to let us shoot at her house.
We used black washi tape to create the abstract web pattern around the door, painted pumpkins to look like potted “cacti”, and an “beware of attack flamingos” sign, because why not?!
What do you all think? Are black flamingos creepy.. or brilliant?! I’m definitely thinking the latter. I also did a little internet-digging for some other spooky (yet glam) accessories and was surprised by how much I loved! Turns out, I may be a Halloween girl after all…
Definitely putting this black branch wreath on my front door.
Planning to replace all orange decor with pretty coppers — like this gorgeous cocktail set.
These striped straws add the perfect punch for fall.
Love the idea of a creepy cocktail in these old-fashion glasses.
This copper cauldron would look even better filled with candy.
Striped linen napkins are a necessary staple.
Totally fan-girling over these cement candle holders!
Inspired by these black flamingos to create a spooky Palm Springs.
The cutest ginger beer ever.
And finally, Copper martini glasses are a must.
Let’s face it, we’re hard pressed to ever turn down a good metallic addition (#staycopper) and a reason to celebrate. This year we have big plans to dress up, have some creepy cocktails, and enjoy the night with some friends! What are your plans?
