Poe’s work has been a sincere friend of mine for a long time. Although, I’m not huge on his poetry, but I don’t like poetry in general. I think Poe-ms really grasp what a drunken sap he was. His fiction, however, is a completely different story. I LOVE ‘Fall of the House of Usher’ and ‘Masque of the Red Death’.
I’m throwing a huge Halloween Party and decorated in a Poe-esque spirit. It’s getting down to the wire, but I had not added spider webs when the pictures were taken as they tend to lose elasticity in a few days and don’t look as good. My tapered candles are also missing, but you’ll get the gist.
Many of the decorations were DYI and fun to make. The branches on my mantle, I spray painted black. The wreaths are black, orange, and white burlap… and of course, I used empty wine/liquor (not mine, I swear) bottles for the drinks.
