About Sarah @ Parrott Design Studio

I hope you all had a fun weekend! If you are like me, then you are filled to capacity with sweets. My sister and her husband, along with my parents’ never-ending supply of Halloween props, threw a fantastic Halloween party on Friday night. Halloween was always an extravagant affair that took months of planning around the Parrott household. Each year the four of us spent September coming up with bigger, better, and scarier ideas than the last for our party. My father would transform our garage into a haunted house and my mother would create spooky vignettes throughout the room. My sister and I would design & deliver the invitations to everyone in our neighborhood. We would also map out the haunted “walk” which was a ghost tour {always led by yours truly} through our backyard, around our house, through the front yard, & back to the garage. Everyone went all-out for the event. My father would build a tunnel leading out of the back door of the garage into the backyard, fill it with strobe lights, spider webs, and dry ice, leaving a small opening where he could jump out and scare people. One year our neighbor built a life-size coffin and played Dracula for years. Our shed became a mausoleum. The garden became a graveyard. One year a friend of my father’s dressed as a fencer and stood on top of our picnic table swashing his sword and laughing like a crazy man. To this day he remains the scariest in our cast of characters.

Food was never the focus, though candy was always there. Things have changed over the years and this year my sister was the one who went all out with the sweets. Treats included eyeballs {chocolate covered donuts}, fingers {sugar cookies}, ghosts and pumpkins {brownie pops}, candy apples, popcorn balls, and cupcakes. Drinks included Witch’s Brew {sangria}, spiced cider {including a frozen “brain”}, zombie juice {beer}, and specimen samples {jell-o shots…& yes, they were sterile}! Jess has a few more photos on her blog as well.

I cannot wait until she creates a dessert buffet for our wedding {minus the Halloween theme, of course}! Jess has been designing wedding candy tables and special event desert buffets. Southern Maine brides definitely check her out!
