Spooks, Spiders + Spells Halloween Collection

I'm so excited to show you my 2011 Halloween Party Collection :) Eeeek!!! It was featured on my favorite site, HWTM, yesterday!! You can read the feature right here.

My hubby had the grand idea of using straw bales as the backdrop and I just love how it turned out. We're fortunate enough to have them on-hand since my Dad has a shed full of them for his animals so I setup this shoot in my parents backyard :) This was also my first styled shoot outside. Despite the wind knocking everything over a million times, it was a beautiful day for a photoshoot.

This Collection is perfect for a children's Halloween party or even an adult party. Spiders were the main element used throughout and I love the ever-so-popular color scheme of black, orange, lime and purple. Most importantly, I cannot thank the fabulous vendors enough who helped make this perfect. Did you see the matching *golden* tee, custom sugar cookies, spooky cake pops, adorable decor? AMAZING!!!

 


Now the not so fun part about this shoot was that I was sick the week leading up to the shoot (which was on a Sunday morning). I had a really bad ear infection and actually ended up going to the emergency room right after the photographer left b/c I couldn't take it anymore. (Luckily I did because it turned out I was misdiagnosed with an inner ear infection when it was really an outer). So needless to say, I'm thrilled how this turned out because I was {this} close to canceling it.

A *huge* thank you to the below vendors for their amazing custom products + goodies! You can purchase this full DIY Printable Collection in my etsy shop.
