Halloween All Year Party Tips

Halloween is upon us! A time for finding seduction and danger in the darkest of places. My panties are about to drop lower than the temperatures outside. Did we mention that the word “sin” is in our name? Which means we probably love everything sinful? Which means we definitely love all things Halloween related!

We are hot and bothered to help you throw the most badass, sexy, Hannibal-level killer party ever (okay maybe not that killer). You’re gonna be like the Elvira of your ‘hood, just creepy and sexy as fuck. We looked at home decor ideas and recipes that were simply to die for. Even experienced witches, witches who have invented countless recipes, would be jealous of these concoctions!

Décor Tips:

  • Don’t be afraid to mix and match textures. From black velvet, to sheer lace, to dark red silk, you should fill your home with the darkest and most dangerous of textures.
  • Cover Your Walls With Darkness. Print off a variety of spooky vintage images and hang them around your home in old, dusty frames.
  • Cut out black bats, spiders, or shadows of body parts and hang them around your home. All you need is a pair of scissors, black paper, and a dark imagination.
  • If you’re really feeling saucy, splatter white sheets with fake blood (seriously, make sure it’s fake) and then hang the sheets against your walls.
  • Don’t forget the power of scent. Find dark and seductive candles that you can light for your guests. We are in love with Nightshade Botanicals, which produce breathtakingly earthen products such as this “Protect” candle. You may need it.
