For this experiential Halloween party from Kristin Banta Events, guests traveled through eight highly stylized spaces of a private estate in Beverly Hills. After being greeted by a brazen Ringmaster, guests wandered into a carnival wasteland of expired ride parts and traveled on a funicular to the lower level of the property where they transitioned between 5 different spaces throughout the rest of the evening, including a highly experiential Haunted House.
Howard Brown Health Center held its first ever Halloween fête at The Geraghty. To fit the naturally decorated bone and branch-themed event by Kehoe Designs, Pilsen partygoers had the option of arriving in costumes or creating original ones with elements from Howard Brown’s Brown Elephant retail shop. They later indulged in specialty cocktails and treats, danced to music from two local DJs and tried their luck in a 50/50 cash raffle and a silent auction. The party raised funds to support more than 18,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender adults and youth through clinical care, research, education and advocacy.
For this amazing Chicago wedding, the couple wanted a fun ambience with a nod to Halloween without feeling too literal (read: “black and orange”). To accomplish this, Life in Bloom opted to use white pumpkins as floral vases with a floral palette consisting of peach stock, Juliet garden roses, ivory and cream roses, and scabiosa pods. Other fun elements included custom carved pumpkins, which greeted guests as they entered and exited the venue. Life in Bloom also produced a large pumpkin with the couples’ initials carved into it that rested on the Place Card Table.
It’s not every day that designers from HMR Designs have the opportunity to use their impeccable eye for styling to arrange skeleton bones, rot flowers and scatter faux roaches. Perhaps it’s the rarity of a Halloween Party that makes it oh so much fun for an event designer. Or perhaps it’s just that Halloween reveals the darkness lurking in us all.
For this Abandoned Hotel-themed Halloween party, planned by RLE Charleston, guests were invited to “Check-In”… but never to “Check-Out.” With lighting by TEC Lighting, lounge rentals by 428 Main and other rentals by Snyder Rentals, this party was scary yet chic! The land props from PDA Lighting & Sound were incredible, as well. Catering by CRU Catering also proved to be a huge hit.
Impressively, Chicago’s Event Creative made the Sun-Times Gala at Union Station a spooky, yet stunning night to remember with spiders blending in perfectly with gorgeous table decor.
