Halloween + Birthday = Birthoweenday

29 Oct

What do you get when you cross a birthday with Halloween?

(Other than a lifetime obsession with all things spooky and scary!)

You get a ‘birthoweenday’!

(A huge thanks to Lisa-Marie for coming up with my new favourite word!)

So to celebrate my birthoween weekend – yeah, we’re spreading out the fun for as long as we can – I thought I’d share with you some Halloween treats.

First up, I’ve just discovered Sweet Paul and I absolutely adore his Halloween styling…

I mean how pretty do these painted pumpkins and ghostly bunting look?

Ok, the cozy knitted skull isn’t as cute but it’s pretty cool…

And I’m loving the witch’s ingredients bottles…

But most of all I’m head over heels for his pumpkin styling (has anyone said those two words together before??).

A Louis Vuitton pumpkin… amazing!

And a diorama pumpkin… well, sir I salute you!

But he’s not the only with an exceedingly cool pumpkin on the go…

How adorable is domestikated‘s little house pumpkin?

It makes me feel all aglow just looking at it!

And of course you can’t have a birthday, I mean birthoweenday, without cake!

And how cool is this ‘bat cake’ (spotted via A Cup of Jo)? It looks like a Halloween version of a black bottom cupcake… yum!

Have a wonderfully wicked Halloween weekend everyone xx

    Those painted pumpkins are very stylish! Very pretty and great for fans of minimalist interiors. Enjoy your “birthoween” weekend!

    Happy spooky birthday!

    I am a little bit in awe of domestikate’s pumpkin, that actually looks a lot like our house – except orange, I think I’m going to try my hand at this tonight 🙂

    Happy Birthday Halloweekend! I’m NOT showing that knitted skull to my boyfriend; the flat would be covered in them!

    Happy Birthday! Hope it’s a good one, and suitably scary. Love the pumpkin with the deer so cute, and yes, love domestikate’s pumpkin too, was checking it out earlier in the week.

    One of my mates and her boyf managed to carve a pumpkin of the face of his dog – it looks amazing. I will send it to you when I get the link – you will love it!

    Happy Birthoweenday! Hope its spooky and rad.

    I love the painted pumpkins. I am trying to work out in my head how to make the bat cake…

    Happy Halloween birthday! I’m so glad I discovered your blog – it is lovely & charming! 🙂

    If you love Halloween, you should definitely incorporate elements of it in your wedding. Am definitely bookmarking your blog for lots of backlog reading and looking forward to future posts 🙂

    I used the labels on spooky looking bottles idea last night for our Halloween party. It was great! Probably not as ‘stylish’ as these ones, but all the same ‘Corpse Testes’ seemed to go down well!
