We decided to celebrate Halloween this season with a touch of elegance. With no need for trashy dances and no cute little children to dress up and take trick-or-treating, we spent the evening with good food and good company.
Some neighbors and I put on a progressive dinner for four couples and I hosted the dinner. With inspiration from this shoot, Carly and I put together the black and gold tablescape and then together worked on the dinner and dessert menu. The gasps when we let the couples in after appetizers and the magical touch of the playful flames gave an aura of mysterious elegance to the night.
It’s hard to capture candlelit moments, and its hard to get quality pictures without natural light – but here are a few snapshots from the evening:
What do you think of the black and gold?
