Let’s Get This Party Started!

Black RosesWith Halloween approaching quickly I wanted to share some great finds for your parties! I went to some local party stores to give me some ideas and found these FABULOUS black roses! I love them, they say I’m throwing a classy Halloween party please don’t get drunk and puke on me! BUT at $8.00 a rose I wasn’t about to make that purchase.  So I got creative.

Black Roses


Here is my version.  This entire centerpiece cost a total of approx. $7.00.  I went to the dollar store purchased a bundle of white roses, the two sparkly skulls, 3 sparkly bats, and a black skull platter. I then purchased black tinted hair spray (much cheaper than buying spray paint), sprayed the roses black and put them in the red vase (a clear white vase would still look fabulous as well just make sure you spray the stems of the flowers so they look like long stem dead black roses.  The black roses really make for a great addition to any party!  More pictures to come and more ideas for saving some money on decor!
