Labor day just passed, and Halloween is just around the corner. Yup! one of kids' favorite holidays. I was so excited when Rachael from Fawn Handcrafted Celebrations reached out to me, to create an invitation for a Halloween party. The theme was Edgar Alan Poe's poem "Raven". When Rachael told me that it would be black and white party, I already fell in love with it.
Honestly I was not familiar with the poem at first, but thanks to Mr. Google :) After spending a couple of hours researching, I would say "Raven" is a pretty dark poem. Perfect for Halloween, but very different from my regular style (soft pastel colors). Yet, I went ahead and did some sketching and doodling. I was glad when Rachael approved it on the first preview. Phew!
Rachael did an amazing job on the styling (as always). The event landed on the front cover of Everyday Party Magazine Fall 2016 edition. Huge congrats to her and team! I like how she loosely threw black and white honeycombs on the background. My major crush is actually the vintage typewriter! It perfectly displayed my invitation. You could check out the whole look here (pg. 77-80).
Just in case if you want to do a black and white Halloween theme, I will create some free Halloween printable images on my next post. So, stay tune!
