Happy Halloween! My favorite holiday is here, although it feels strange to be celebrating in New York just 2 days after Hurricane Sandy barreled through. My family is safe and sound, we never lost power or had flooding on our street and we are now on day 3 of a mini vacation from school, ballet and work. The weather looks good for Trick or Treating tonight in our neighborhood, but if it wasn’t we would still have fun in our building full of young kids.
On the day that Sandy hit I had my second feature on Amy Atlas, a Halloween Dinner Party that was inspired by Dennison Bogie books. I crafted for the first time with real crepe paper and fell in love with a medium that I can use to create dramatic backdrops and limitless crafts for just a few dollars. For my Spooky Supper I made a gigantic cake that would have served 100, except 2 of the cake layers were fake. Here is a great shot of the prop cake portion of the cake, complete by itself as my Dancing Witches Halloween Cake. I will be following up soon with the rest of my Halloween Dinner Party post, until then check out my Amy Atlas feature HERE and the rest of my Halloween posts:
