25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

The Prettiest Floral Displays


Nothing makes a room more chic and pretty than a touch of fresh flowers here and there. Whenever my husband buys me a bouquet, which is often, because he is very romantic 🙂, I like to keep them in a vase on our dining table. But, as I drool over all of the floral design pages on Instagram, I do think of getting a bit more creative with my flower arrangements. And really, you don't have to be an expert to get a beautiful look. If you start with the right containers and know where to place them, you can create a very chic display in your own home. Here are a few easy and beautiful ideas.

Think outside the vase. I love this idea the most, because you can incorporate it in so many different ways. I've done it with larger arrangements in a decorative watering can, and I've used it for mini single displays in a fancy teacup or old candle holders. It's a great way to achieve big impact in a small space. For example, one of those mini candle holder arrangements pictured above would be so pretty on a vanity tray or on top of a stack of chic coffee table books.

Experiment with submerged arrangements. With tall vases, like the cylindrical ones pictured above, you can fully or partly submerge flowers for a unique display. This look works best with multiple arrangements clustered together on a console table or buffet. You can add decorative vase fillers; like shells, pebbles or fruit. I love how the one above has a large leaf wrapped around the bouquet. Here is a great step-by-step DIY for submerged arrangements, and here is some beautiful inspiration.

Arrange a group of bud vases. This is the best way to make a centerpiece on a budget. You can make a small bouquet go a long way with several small vases. Group little jars or vases of different shapes and sizes on a mantle or as a centerpiece. Pictured: SIGNALS Small Cut Glass Vases - Set of Five


This last one is my absolute favorite, because it's so easy, but looks so much more beautiful than a typical vase of flowers. And how romantic...flowers and candles in one. It's the perfect centerpiece. Get the look here >.
