This month, the uber-talented Karson Butler Events and Laura Hooper Calligraphy teamed up to host a Halloween-inspired calligraphy workshop at Karson Butler’s beautiful studio in Washington DC. We love their unique Halloween decorating ideas!
The playful decorations (including our Mercury Pumpkins and Periodic Cocktail Platter) go beyond the standard orange and black palette. “Our color palette included blacks, silvers and green,” says Emily Butler. “We wanted to steer clear of traditional orange and do something a bit different.”
The best part about the mercury pumpkins they used? They work well all season long — Thanksgiving, almost up until Christmas! “We’re already planning an autumnal look of mixed metallics for our Thanksgiving table,” Emily says.
Stunning flowers and greenery from Victoria Clausen Florals, mixed with some strategically placed dry ice and beakers add the perfect finishing touch.
