HALLOWEEN ENTERTAINING

i called on my talented friends from over at bash, please over to the studio to give you some last minute halloween tabletop ideas. and then pharmacie is going to give you 3 delicious cocktail recipes for your party. i absolutely love what they put together. such a sophisticated setup and so simple to execute! and of course, jesse has a special way with the camera…

“halloween is best served up simply spooky or it can be overkill on the orange kitsch factor. we chose to go more suggestive and organic to elevate our cocktail party.” – bash, please

here’s a few tips to recreate this vibe!

• cheesecloth is all you need for tablecloths. it works wonders draping over all your furniture for an ethereal, abandoned house vibe.

• name your cocktails after your favorite scary movie or song. we chose quotes from Psycho, The Shining and The Doors lyrics “bloody red sun of fantastic LA”. we warmed up our best cursive and adorned these black platters with a white paint pen in flourished script. (you can draw it out lightly with pencil first)

• pampas grass makes a great table underlay that feels a bit like spider webs, a bit like a dusty ghost. cheap and easy to cut and lay around the house for autumnal eerie-ness. we topped it with grey and white pumpkins for a neutral, subdued effect. stack and lean your pumpkins for movement and an alive feeling.

• skip white candles and get gray or black. more dramatic and the drip is so pretty and haunting.

• forage your neighborhood for dead branches! They feel like creepy fingers tucked into any holiday tabletop or on a serving tray.

and now for the drinks…

“These are (mostly) classically-style, aromatic cocktails meant for sipping. There are a few somewhat obscure ingredients, but a trip to your local high-end spirits shop (or even Bevmo) should help in sourcing those bottles.” –talmadge from pharmacie

THE JACK TORRANCE

1.5 oz Rum (Cana Brava is great here)
3/4 oz Apfelkorn Apple Liqueur
3/4 oz St Elizabeth’s Allspice Dram
2 dashes Angostura Orange Bitters

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice and shake vigorously. Then strain into a coupe or other “up” glass. Add bitters. Garnish with a little orange zest.

MRS. BATES

1 oz White Whiskey or Urban Moonshine (I use Buffalo Trace White Dog Mash #1)
1 oz Bechorovka
3/4 oz Orgeat

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice and shake vigorously. Then strain into a coupe or other “up” glass. Garnish with a star anise pod.

BLOOD RED SUN OF FANTASTIC L.A.

1 oz Tequila (Blanco)
1 oz Orange Juice
1 oz Tangerine Juice
1.5 oz Sanbitter Soda
2-3 drops Absinthe

Combine juice and tequila in a tall “collins” glass, ad ice. The top with Sanbitter and Absinthe. If you can’t find Sanbitter, you can use Chinotto or Campari (just not as good).line

MAGIC 8 BALL / FAUX FUR

yes

sometimes there are things you see all the time and never give it much of a thought. and then… you see it in a different context and bOOOOM! it’s like a whole new thing entirely, full of potential and possibility. it’s as if you’re seeing it again for the first time.

well it turns out faux fur is for more than halloween costumes and vintage cheetah jackets and we can’t get enough. the coats are amazing, but let’s talk about these heels for a minute!

fur

the teddy bear browns of yesterday have been transformed into a variety of sorbet shades. neutral nudes are striped alongside vibrant hot pinks. texture plays largely into the effect too, shaggy, fluffy and closely shorn.

1-copy

as with apparel and accessories these innovations also seem to be gaining momentum within interior elements as well. flokati style rugs, throw pillows and poufs are popping up in hues other than white and cream. with the cold months of winter rapidly approaching we welcome this trend with a big, warm hug.
