This year for Halloween, Iv stepped up my game decoration wise. After all why not make the most out of a celebration. I decided to create a a white and gold flower garland for the fireplace in the entrance to our home.
I took white roses and hydrangeas and placed in floral foam draped across the fireplace. I than added some white and gold pumpkins ( regular orange ones spray painted) to add the Halloween element along with large church candles placed in clear vases. Finally a little dried eucalyptus which I spray painted gold added to the front and there you have it. It was super easy and quick to do and I think it adds a nice bit of drama to our hallway.
I hope you like it?
Iv lived in Spain for coming up to three years now, and I'll be honest (and a little embarrassed) to tell you and tell you that Iv only just managed to make the trip to zahara
My friends are absolutely shocked by this fact, as its a real favourite place for more or less everyone who lives in this area. About a 30 Minute drive from Tarifa (a super cute beach town, I wrote about it here)
In fact, my lovely friend Anna was so dismayed that I was missing out on the whole Zahara vibe that she scheduled in a Friday lunch date. Aren't friends just the best!?
Zahara is more of a fishing village, much smaller than Tarifa. Smaller but perfectly formed, in that rustic, understated bohemian Spanish way that I have come to adore.
There is so much creativity and ingenuity...
She showed me a little favourite place of hers... 21 restaurant . Tucked away through one of the little streets, its the kind of place you need to know someone who knows about it. Hooray for Anna ( who has kindly taken up the position of Spanish life guide to me)
Its probably one of Zahara's fancier restaurants...But still bohemian and charming.
We took a table outside, nibbled on the freshest just out of the oven warm bread (is there anything better?) and caught up on some good old gossip while we waited for our lunch
I started with the baked brie which was incredible, Followed by the freshest monkfish ever. Zahara is actually known for its fish, as you would expect from a fishing village. And im told the tuna here is out of this world!
Next time I visit ill be sure to show you the beach which is spectacular!
I definitely recommend grabbing a dinner or lunch at 21 if your visiting Zahara, you wont be disappointed
I Love to celebrate all of the seasonal events and Halloween is no exception. Last year while I was visiting London, I popped by Peggy Porschen (take a look, here)for some tea and Inspiration and fell in love with the pastel Halloween theme. So I decided why not create my own version.
I invited a couple of my favourite (but camera shy) girlfriends around to enjoy a pre Halloween warm up for an evening of dinner and gossip.
I did have to laugh when I was styling and shooting this because it was so hot in Spain this day, and in no way autumnal feeling...#spanishproblems
The pumpkins were regular faux orange ones which I spray painted pink, white or gold along with the dried eucalyptus on the place settings (I can re use this for Christmas)
Its so lovely to create magical evenings for your friends don't you think?
