Happy Halloween y’all! This shoot that I have for you all today features some gorgeous Halloween inspired engagement party ideas that are just too pretty to be scary! Drawing inspiration from an elegant and whimsical invitation design by Loralee Lewis and the romantic couple Morticia and Gomez Addams (of the TV show Addams Family), Two Prince Bakery Theater put together a look for an engagement party that is fun, unique, and gorgeous. Complete with sophisticated Halloween themed food, desserts, and signature drinks, every single detail for an engagement was thought of. Marc Edwards Photographs beautifully captured all of the spooky details for us…

From Dorangela of Two Prince Bakery Theater:

When the fabulous designer Loralee Lewis asked us to style a Halloween inspired party shoot featuring one of her amazing paper suites, we knew it had to be something out of the ordinary. Her gorgeous Haunted Mansion theme is so elegant that an upscale engagement party quickly came to mind. This suite would also make a gorgeous themed wedding reception as well. Further she suggested we make all the food items completely gluten free to best showcase our expertise. Our inspiration for this party shoot was the spooky and very much in love, Morticia and Gomez from the Addams Family. This nostalgic TV couple is the perfect combination of a spooky, elegant and a romantic loving couple. 

To compliment the paper suite we kept the colors very neutral, black, taupe and rich tobacco with splashes of white and creams. In designing this party we wanted to have fun Halloween elements that were unique to this colorful couple but also very sophisticated. The rich tobacco color furniture and gothic like wrought iron chandelier, sconces and candelabras help to engrain a sense of mystery, while the lush and light colored floral arrangements enhance the romance of the occasion and soften the setting. Design elements such as the soft glow of candlelight further enhance the romantic feel, while a few carefully selected elements such as the “smokin Gomez” cocktail embellished with fondant cigars, Morticia and Gomez dressed cake pops and even the iconic Peacock rattan chair which the lovely Morticia often sat on, give it a sense of whimsy. 

Another element of this Spooky engagement party that makes it special and unique is that the entire menu is completely gluten-free. Since I am a gluten-free baker, we wanted to show how a gorgeous party can be created with rich and decadent treats while being completely free of gluten.

We started with a gorgeous paper suite from the fabulous Loralee Lewis, then came up with an elegant and fun concept, worked with some amazing vendors and a talented photographer captured it perfectly creating a whimsical Halloween engagement that’s too pretty to be scary.

No detail was missed in this shoot! I love the custom hors d’oeuvres and desserts and the “spooky” take on them- of course it helps that that they look delicious! And while this was designed as inspiration for an engagement party, these ideas could pertain to any event with a spooky theme!
