V222: CECI INSPIRATIONS – HAUTE HALLOWEEN

HAUTE HALLOWEEN

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays of the year. As a kid, I was planning my costume often months before and obsessively looking forward to the day until it finally came. It’s also both my mom’s and my husband’s birthday so there’s even more reason to celebrate! And you know I never miss a chance to get dressed up and have a party. I’m all about embracing life and having a good time.

So what does it mean when this time of year comes around again at my work? I get my team together for our own fun Halloween tradition here at the Ceci New York design studio, and we all dress up in masquerade costumes and have our own little party. One day I want to turn this into an actual ball, and you guys are all invited!

Since black is the color of Halloween, we also thought we’d show you the top five ways to do black invitations, from using velvet to embellishing with blue foil. Around here, invitations aren’t just paper, they’re fashion. Plus, embrace the glamour of a masquerade with our dazzling guide.

Happy Halloween!

Ceci

P.S. Super special thanks to Sharon, Sofia and Visions of Venice for making my dreams come to life!
