Halloween is drawing near, and you know what that means: treats, parties, goofy costumes, spooky decorations and Jack-o-lanterns. What’s not to love? If you’re hosting a party, going to one, or just looking to kick your Halloween game up a notch, here are 10 luxurious Halloween treats that would be perfect ways to indulge this year – whether it’s for a host or hostess gift, a party favor or just an indulgent sweet for yourself. ‘Cause that’s totally allowed.
Halloween is an electric time of year, when it feels as if anything might be possible. Mischief, wild surprises, unexpected turns of events, encoded messages, second chances and nocturnal adventures. Journeys to the past, connections with the spirit world, attempted vengeance, redemptive acts and the righting of ancient wrongs. In short, many of the elements that make for great fiction.
Who are you going to be for Halloween this year? We’re torn between Princess Shuri from Black Panther, Beyoncé at Coachella, Wonder Woman, or the Duchess of Sussex. Or maybe Edna Mode? Maybe we should get the squad together and be The Incredibles? Tough call. The only thing we’re sure of is that we need to find a world-class costume shop, since we’re not capable of DIY’ing this one. So we went in search of the best upscale costume shops online, and in cities known for theatricality, flair and a serious commitment to Halloween: New York, LA, London, New Orleans and San Francisco.
Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year, and it’s also becoming more popular as a time to take a mini-vacation. But where to go? The perfect destination would have some historic or thematic tie to the holiday, and a luxurious hotel to stay in, and at least one fantastic party, or parade, or assorted bacchanalia. Fog, ghosts and really good candy are preferred, but not required. If money is no object, and you can get away for a few days, here’s our list of the top 10 destinations in the world to celebrate a glamorous, mysterious, adrenaline-fueled Halloween.
What is the true scent of the autumn? Apples, wood smoke, cinnamon, pumpkin spice? Whatever it is, we love it – so we went in search of luxurious scented candles that would fill our homes with the fragrance of fall.
