Open House: Ravenshire Halloween Village

Ravenshire Open House Sign

The witches have gathered, the ghosts are flying, and the candy bowls have been filled, the Ravenshire Halloween Village is open for trick or treat.  Stop by and enjoy six decorated rooms in different autumnal styles from rustic, to elegant, to country; starting tomorrow October 10 through Monday, October 13, 2014.  I kept everything charming and inviting, nothing too scary, great for families and friends.  Be inspired by some of my favorite designers; for highlights of each room visit this weeks’ past posts.

As you walk up the grassy path, Thaino Designs Dont Look Up! ghosts are making their way through the woods.  Bright and cheery Sway’s Boo Pumpkins line the main courtyard area with Roawenwood fountain, Thaino flower cauldron, Aphrodite Shop squirrels (Totally Nutz for you! & My babies nest @ The Seasons Story), and Park Place friendly flying Casper Ghostie Set (@ Mieville Halloween Village).  Near the courtyard is Sway’s Wishing Well (@ Mystic Realms Fair) and Finishing Touches Pumpkin Picker’s Wheelbarrow (subscriber gift).

Leading to the last house are two costumed skeletons and The Mustard Seed Fall Decor (60L special this weekend).  The very last house in the village is dedicated to the upcoming spooky Halloween season with a seance theme room from Finishing Touches Twilight collection complete with charred wood fireplace, sheet draped table and chair, and Victorian royal purple living room decor (Spellbound collection, past Twisted gift) transformed into a waiting area. Hope my village motives you.  Let’s Get Decorating!

Ravenshire Halloween Village Sneak Peek

PP Autumn Shadow DR outside

As promised, this week I will present you with several more sneak peeks of my upcoming Halloween Village open house where each room is decorated in a different autumnal style with corresponding window displays.  Today, I am featuring Park Place Autumn Shadows Dining Room collection (previously released at HGE and now available at the main store), Finishing Touches Pumpkin Candles and Autumn Wreath, Thaino Designs spooky sweet Halloween outdoor decor, and Aphrodite Shop Seven Sins wine (@ the Cosmo Sales Room event). Notable in the dining room is the Frank Lloyd Wright inspired stained glass inlay china cabinet, buffet table, and matching chandeliers.  The warmth of the crackling fire reflects the rich tones of the elegant mahogany round dining table.  Also included in the collection are charming painted pumpkin arrangements, greeting guests in the windows.  I completed the room with Finishing Touches new autumn release metal pumpkin candles, available in 6 versions.  All shoppe windows are embellished with different decorative Halloween items from pumpkins to haunted houses, and each window sports a unique Finishing Touches wreath.  The outside walkway is guarded by adorable Thaino Designs Witches in Training and Flower Cauldron.  Attached to this Roawenwood Ravenshire Village (single shoppe) is a little porch which I made into a farm to table store for the Halloween Village, with overflowing baskets of apples, squash, and zucchini.  Pumpkins, hay bales, a porch swing and bobbing for apples finish the scene.  Hope this inspires you to create a warm and inviting space for the upcoming holiday season.  Let’s Get Decorating!

Overview

Just a few hours left for the 7th Annual Second Life Home & Garden Expo 2014 and harvest time is here! Since, October is coming up soon, and as my loyal readers & friends know I LOVE Halloween, so I couldn’t resist creating a beau-boo Victorian Trick or Treat village using Roawenwood Ravenshire Village Shoppes available at HGE. There are three different shops offered for sale at the expo: a single with side porch, a double with two individual rooms, and a grande with three connected rooms. Roawenwood is also offering a village fountain, patio pavers, and hay bales (Sim 3).  Halloween decor is furnished by Finishing Touches, Thaino Designs, Park Place, Sway’s, What Next, and Aphrodite Shop, I will showcase the items and where to purchased them in my upcoming blog post.  Coming this week, I will host an open house at the Halloween Village featuring some of my favorite designers on the grid.  Stop by, check out each decorated room, trick or treat among ghosts and witches, bring your little ones, nothing scary, all sweet. Happy harvest time and remember always let’s get decorating!
