Lucas Oil Stadium was the incredible backdrop for our Blitz & Glitz event. The mezzanine was set with lots of tables dressed in sparkly blue and silver linen overlooking the Colts playing field. Half of the centerpieces were footballs with real grass in sleek silver bases and the other half of the centerpieces were glitzy lamps. The base was filled with acrylic diamonds and the lampshade dripped with chandelier drops and the entire piece was lit with blue lights. The built in stage is an amazing sculpture in itself. It’s the iconic horseshoe shape with lighted columns. The guests toured the locker rooms, field and stadium then they were treated to a served dinner.


Grey, Black and Yellow has long been a fave color combination of mine. Why not carry out those colors to your Halloween table? Here, the inspiration was the contemporary fabric tablecloth. I set the table with black charger plates, a yellow dinner plate and a black and white polka dotted salad plate. I spray painted assorted pumpkins to match and placed them on chunky black candle holders with Spanish moss as a bed. I collected acorns from a friend’s yard, spray painted them silver and stacked them in a glass jar. The placecard holders are tarnished silver skulls. I found a cool double sided scrapbook paper that when you tear the edges of the paper, the color of the opposite side shows through. Finally, I perched black crows in various places around the table.


Tackling Homelessness is Horizon House’s major fundraising event. Not only is it a fun event, it is for a fantastic cause. The Horizon House is a place for our homeless neighbors to go to help get them back on their feet. They provide, job training, clothing, food and support to those in need. This years event was hosted by Dallas Clark of the Indianapolis Colts. Many Colts players showed up to sign autographs, take photos with patrons and help raise money. Connersvine (Hunter Smith’s band) provided awesome music for the evening. Setting the Mood donated the decor for the event.


Check out the spook-tacular Halloween decor Target has this year!! They barely got them stocked on the shelves before I snatched them up. I love the non traditional turquoise mixed in this color scheme. The table cloth is a black faux fur fabric from JoAnns. I sprinkled googlie eyes in different sizes around the table. The paper plates, monster jars, flex straws and monster teeth all came from Target. I put a blue marabou boa around the charger plates and filled containers with candy in coordinating colors. Now get to Target and gobble up your own monster bash.
