21 Black and Gold | Glam Halloween Tablescape

Some years I’m all about the cheese when it comes to decorating for Halloween... goofy cartoon characters, dancing skeletons, painted styrofoam props, you name it-- the cheesier the better. However, this year I shifted my focus to a more sophisticated feel-- with the exception of our scary doors of course. I think it has a lot to do with my new-found fondness for gold. Especially paired with Black.

I blame it on my good friend Brynne and her glorious Gold-Leafed Art. It was love at first sight. I’m so enamored by it, I may even consider changing this whole black and white thing to black and gold obsessed....

If the past is any indication of how we decorate for the holidays *cough Independence Day cough* I typically create a tablescape just to host a Pinterest-inspired delicious dinner for friends and family. And this year Halloween is no exception:

But before getting any further, I just wanted to make it clear that my dear friends at Wayfair helped sponsor today’s post. They gave me freedom to post about whatever I wanted and buy/make stuff from wherever/however I wanted (since I’m a procrastinator, just about everything was purchased/found locally). But their site is STOCKED with some seriously sophisticated finds- they aren’t paying me to say that- pinky promise. And look they even have a section dedicated to gold. Ok maybe I just used their search feature but whatevs.

What they really wanted me to tell you was that they’re running a Halloween Decorating Contest. And the winner gets $500 to spend on the Wayfair site. Cheah, coolest company or what?! So after I finish chatting about our tablescape, head on over there and show them how you decked out your schmancy, frightening, or cutie-patootie home/room/porch for Halloween.

13 How to Save Clothing using Rit Dye

Continuing with the digging-through-a-bunch-of-old-photos (remember #thriftscorethursday last week?!), I came across these pics on a successful experiment attempted years ago while fixing a dress with Rit Dye. It was back when I was renting from my pops, hence there’s a stove (remember we don't own one) and some old-school vinyl... the flooring not the records. And today I’m going to show you How to Save Clothing using Rit Dye:

This pretty little dress almost brought me to tears after washing it ONE time before even getting the chance to wear it. You see those pretty little *evil* red-dyed-wooden beads? Well, the dye from suckers seeped onto the fabric part of the dress during its first solo wash of doom.

7 #thriftscorethursday Glass Obsession Take Two

If you remember waaay back to our Fifth Thrift Score Thursday, I admitted my glass obsession and have since shared a few pieces of said collection-- namely just the Decanter Set, Drink Dispenser, three pieces from the best thrifting weekend ever, martini glasses, and "Rare" shot glasses  but who's counting?!... we'll today I'm ready to showcase some pieces scored during a thrifting haul years ago.

16 Free Halloween Print: Frankenstein Wall Art

I know I’ve already declared my love for Halloween, but seriously, I just can’t get enough! I think a lot of the fondness comes from my love of change… especially since the last decorating holiday, Independence Day was over three months ago!

Which is why I was super excited when Holly (from Design Dazzle) organized this event (with over 110 talented friends) to bring you these spectacular Halloween ideas! You’ll be sure to find SOMETHING with all the costumes, parties, d├ęcor, printables, recipes and crafts galore!! So stay tuned until the end of the post!

My piece of the holiday hop is this Funky Frankenstein Wall Art (which you can download below): 
Free Halloween Print: Frankenstein Wall Art | www.blackandwhiteobsession.com

The whole printable is inspired by the song “Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. To me Frankie is short for Frankenstein and since there's already an 80's Halloween vibe, I thought the Michael Jackson's Thriller coat would be a fun addition.
