Bouquet Box

A Halloween Inspired Party

Bouquet Box founder and lifestyles expert Courtney Sixx shows how to set a gothic glam party table

Courtney Sixx has been a guest at some of the most fabulously ghoulish Hollywood fetes.

Many of the details she sees become muses for her own ideas, and now she is sharing some scary stylish decorating details.

Eerily Chic Tablescape

Set your table outside, if possible, and at night amid a bevy of low hanging branches for a naturally spooky backdrop. If indoors, dim your lights for effect.

A Warm Welcome

Use Halloween as motivation but move beyond the typical black and orange—Courtney Sixx is seated among chic black and grey combos, black textured fabrics punctuated with gold accents and arrangements of rich red and deep pink flowers.

Decorative Chair Backs

Create a dramatic chair back with a giant black tulle bow festooned with flowers mirroring the table display. The floor-length drape of the bow is secured to the chair leg bottoms with two black elastic hair bands; the flowers and greenery are applied with a hot glue gun.

Black Candelabras

Spray paint candelabras in matte black. Courtney loves spray paint for easy, budget-friendly all-over coverage. Set tall, gold taper candles in squares of black tulle and then place together in candle cradle for an edgy detail.

Bowls of Berries

Add more deep colors to the table setting with small silver bowls of blackberries and raspberries. Dot them at every few place settings for a pop of festive color and texture—but don’t be surprised if your guests think they are for snacking!

Velvet Seat Cushions

Customize rental chair cushions using fabric that goes with your theme—in this case black velvet.

  1. Place a cushion on top of fabric and cut out, leaving 4 inches on each side; round corners and cut away excess.
  2. Fold edge of fabric over all around, so that new edge is 1½ inches wider than cushion and pin in place.
  3. Sew a straight line, leaving openings at two sides that meet.
  4. Using a large straight pin, thread ½ inch wide length of ribbon (measure ribbon length to three times cushion perimeter).
  5. Center cushion on underside of fabric and pull ribbon so it gathers around. Tie ribbon ends in a bow and secure to chair by tying ribbon ends and trim.

Thrill your guests with the best “boo-quets”!
