I love Halloween, and this year was an extra creative one for me. I always make my costume, since I love to be creative, and I get to play around with fashion and fantasy to create my look. This year, I heard about a huge party with 72 themed rooms that an old co-worker, Max, was planning. I met with Max to chat decor and find out more, and he offered me a room to design. I was given a $300 budget and other then that, could basically do what ever I wanted as long as I did not ruin the walls.
I have always been fascinated with Egypt, and thought it would be a great theme to play with as far as decor. I also had an idea of dressing up as Isis, the Egyptian Goddess, so it seemed like a great fit….and so the idea of Isis’s Tomb began to come to life!
Here are pics of the room and process.
A bed for a goddess - paper mache scarab, feathery Raven Pillows, and beautiful Golden palm fabric helped create the look.
Isis means Throne, so I had to include one! I borrowed this quirky chair from my mom!
I hand drew this wall paper - gold ink on tracing paper. It tool a long time but it looked amazing!
Black Sparkle wrapping paper added some pizzaz to the bar top.
The bar set up - I was supposed to have grapes in the bowl but my friend forgot them!
The Egyptian vase is mine, from an auction, and the dark blue one I got in mexico (I drank all the tequila haha and stuck some feathers in it)
Scarab Baby protects the bed.
The Eye of Horus on either side of the bed.
A little rave and some flowers in an earthen vase.
My sister helping me install
almost done, missing the candles and blue vase
I decided to make a scarab out of paper mache
I added some raised detailing on the legs with hot glue
I spayed it gold and black.
I mixed some metallic bead packs and poured them into the raised (and gold sparkled) outline on the legs.
I found all of these at value village
and sprayed them gold!
and added some gems to make them extra elaborate!
The party was a lot of fun, I can’t wait to do more projects like this – event design makes me happy!
