It’s not every day that our designers have the opportunity to use their impeccable eye for styling to arrange skeleton bones, rot flowers and scatter faux roaches. In fact, it’s fairly safe to say there is exactly one day of the year these requests might be made. Perhaps it’s the rarity of a Halloween Party that makes it oh so much fun for an event designer. Or perhaps it’s just that Halloween reveals the darkness lurking in us all.
In honor of this ghoulish holiday, we thought we’d share one marvelously macabre celebration of yore, ominously designed by Senior Event Designer John Hensel and maleficently produced by our team.
Guests arrived at a cobweb-drenched Casino Club, entering via red carpet replete with cockroaches and spiders spilling forth from an open, occupied casket.
The faux bug motif followed guests inside, where John personally salvaged decrepit antique furniture for lounge groupings…
…complete with rotting floral and alarming tabletop offerings:
John also made sure there was no shortage of skulking beings and lurking figures.
For cocktails and dancing, our always-impressive art team constructed private alcoves beneath haunted house facades and custom graphics, in addition to peppering the space with an ample array of jack-o-lanterns.
What a truly grim celebration indeed.
Thanks to John for his contributions, and to our whole team for bringing his horrid ideas to life. On behalf of all of us at HMR Designs, we wish you the Happiest of Halloweens.
