Hope all of you are getting in the Halloween spirit... admittedly, Halloween is not my favorite but at the same time, who doesn't love a reason to decorate and have a party?! After Halloween comes my favorite, Thanksgiving... hard to believe they're right around the corner!
I was in New Orleans this past weekend and my, do they go all out!! Gracious!! Everything they do in that city is to the nth degree - just love all the excitement! Coming home to an nondecorated stoop has me feeling like a Halloween Grinch!
In case you too are looking to add a little wicked to your front stoop for all the trick-or-treaters who will come a knockin' tomorrow, here you go (and of course, there's always next year... never too early to start planning!)
By the way, take the wicked out of most of these and you have the perfect Thanksgiving front door decor for your family coming over for turkey in 4 weeks!
History lesson for the day: The demijohn originated as a method for transporting liquids, any liquids: water, wine, oils, etc.The oldest demijohns have the bubble, kidney-shaped bottom, but eventually their shaped evolved to a more jug-like shape making them easier to stack when transporting on wagons, ships, etc. While the shape may have evolved, the narrow-neck of the bottle did not. Antique demijohns are often sea-greens and blues but that too has evolved over time and now you'll see them in all sorts of colors (so color is the first tip-off of whether it's a true antique or not.)
Whether antique or modern replica, they're still fantastic pieces to fill up those nooks and crannies around your house. Great containers for blooming branches or statements on their own, grouped together for color or filled with nick-knacks, you can truly use them in so many ways, they're a true staple!
This demijohn looks great simply filled with branches from the yard
Demijohns can add a pop of color atop a traditional piece
Perrier's limited-edition Warhol labels are works of art in and of themselves!
Admittedly, I am already hooked to sparkling water but how can you resist a refreshing drink with such a fabulous label?
This may have just made me partial to Perrier!
Yesterday would have been the pop-artist's 85th birthday so as an ode to his milestone birthday and the famous 1983 collection of 40 works of art featuring the iconic bottle, Perrier decided it's about time they honor the legend!
