Halloween Sunday

Aside from all the festive parties, costume & treats, Halloween is also about commemorating the people who had been part of our lives but had already gone before us.

This is a photo from a real wedding from 100layercake. At the end of their reception,  they had guests gather around the lake to light candles for those who had past away. A thoughtful detail for a wedding indeed.

So I encourage everyone to take a moment to remember the dearly departed and offer a prayer or two in their honor.

Have a safe All Saint’s Day & Halloween everyone!

Halloween Saturday

Today’s a busy day at the market with all the preparation for tomorrow. I just came from the market myself and the flowers & candles are obviously the best sellers. So I thought I’d post something about unique flower bouquets…

Nice, right? Even perfect with the gown from my yesterday’s post! Both are custom made from Emplume Modern Couture Bouquets.

Halloween Wednesday

Mornin’ everyone! How about a little brunch? I smell pancakes, eggs & bundt cakes…

Check out this gorgeous Pumpkin Harvest Brunch by Vicky from The City Cradle.

I love this! Pumpkin pancakes in miniature pumpkins! An instant way to beautify your dish.

Want to try creating your own threaded heart topper? It’s easy.

These cakes were cut down from tree branches before served, and hung on upside down hat boxes. Genius!

Any occasion just gets better with a special drink – Pumpkin Mojito.

1.25 oz Rum
11 mint leaves
1 tbsp pumpkin
1/2 lime
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 oz soda

You can also download the menu template from here.

Halloween Tuesday

Welcome to R&B’s halloween week! We’ll be posting different ideas about the holiday, so stay tuned alright?

Nothing says halloween than pumpkins and they’re are not just for carvings anymore! I personally haven’t used them as decors but when I saw these pictures from My Home Ideas,  I am now obsessed with trying this myself.

That’s right! All of the pumpkins above are designed with nail heads of different sizes. I love how the white pumpkins bring that modern touch that blends in perfectly with the interior.

Baby pumpkins are available at Landmark Supermarkets. I haven’t seen any white pumpkins though but a little paint would never hurt!

Hope I was able to kick start your Halloween celebration!
