Brittany Jepsen runs one of my favorite blogs, the House that Lars Built. I always appreciate someone who loves using ALL the colors of the rainbow as much as I do. So it was a real treat to collaborate with her on this imaginative Halloween party. The theme is vanitas, which is an art history reference describing the brevity of life and nearness of death. I created the invites and menu which you can download and use for your own spooky soirees. Stay tuned for the recipes on Brittany’s blog!
Also, if you need an extra kick to get you into the Halloween spirit, how about listening to this Dead Man’s Bones album? If you haven’t heard of the band Dead Man’s Bones… it’s a side project of Ryan Gosling’s and their one album is actually really good. For me, it’s one of those seasonal albums that I can’t wait to hear when October rolls around.
