"Our Top 10 Favorite Things About House of Smiths Halloween Feature "

#1) Spooky Candy Buffet- Excellent favor idea - let the guests trick-or-treat! Have little paper baggies by the table so the guests have something to put all their goodies in.

#2) Homemade candy labels with creepy names - For a wedding shower, incorporate names related to weddings (Bride's Bones, Groom's Teeth, etc.)

#3) White Pumpkins- I LOVE white pumpkins and Shelley from House of Smiths painted them herself.

#4) Spanish Moss used under the candy containers, on the shelves, in the stand under the white pumpkin, and many other places to create an eerie feel.

#5) White plates with amazing black-vinyl decals that Shelley designs herself - (check out the decals here)

#6) Incredibly cute green potion bottle with Drink Me tag - you could label it Love Potion No. 9 to make it more wedding showerish.

#7) Black wire bird cage with crow - something about crows gives me the creeps

#8) Halloween framed Subway Art that Shelley created herself!

#9) Fright Garland that is ever so clever and once again, handmade by Shelley of House of Smiths!

#10) Budget Friendly!!! Just about all of the items used were from thrift stores, dollar store, or found cheaply at Michaels.

Hop on over to House of Smiths blog for all the DIY details.

Thanks so much to Shelley from House of Smiths for letting us share all the spooky details!
