If you think Halloween is just a horrid day for gory zombies, ghosts, and blood sucking vampires, then you thought wrong. Halloween is a great chance to express your creativity in picking out your over-the-top costumes, in decorating your homes, and especially throwing your very own Halloween party. This year, I dare you to be spooktacularly chic in designing your party on October 31st. I want you to not only be scary this Halloween, but to incorporate sophisticated style and elegance in your get-together with a little inspiration from a phantom chic party I threw for my friends.
On October 27, I gathered my closest friends in the industry at the most remarkable Halloween party at Bizu Catering Studios in Makati. Although my work is well known for styling weddings, this event was something I wanted to do for a long time. And with the support of my suppliers and friends, I finally made it happen! However, it was only imperative for me to keep this Halloween party faithful to my premise in classic, elegant, and timeless designs.
My mother was the foremost influence in my chosen profession. My mother was very particular when it came to designing our home, which is why I am a very detail-oriented stylist in the business. It is essential for my design to not only look stylish, but structured symmetrically that is vital when my designs are being photographed.
The Halloween gathering was tastefully styled with the color motifs of the night that was black, red, silver, and deep purple. I also integrated Halloween classic decorations such as skulls, spiders, and silver candles, which was balanced by the black and baccarat roses, deep purple calla lilies from Holland, and fruits like black grapes and red apples that gave the design a paraphenomenal sophistication. And to make the night even more successful, Bizu prepared a tailored menu for my guest that was beyond satisfaction.
Bizu catering, who’s been working with me for many years, is known for their tasteful and tailored menu that clients adore. And with that, they did not fail to astonish the guests with their delicious menu and culinary design that in favors the theme. The guests’ favorites were the ingenious concept of the Pumpkin soup, the tasty Raspberry Merlot Popsicle, and The Black Cat and The White Witch for dessert, which was the showstopper! Audrey of Bizu fittingly paired fine wines and champagne with the food, which made the experience even more superb!
