New Orleans Halloween Inspiration with the Set Decorator’s Society of America

Happy Halloween! If you need a little last minute Halloween costume & decor inspiration, check out these pics from when Dapper Cadaver hosted the Set Decorator Society of America’s general membership meeting earlier this month. Members enjoyed New Orleans-themed cocktails from Mr. Bartender and food by Little Jewel of New Orleans. Congratulations to the costume contest winners: Ron Franco (Set Decorator of Goliath, True Blood & Heroes), Laura Richarz (Set Decorator of Bunk’d, True Blood & Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and Corri Levelle (Owner of Sandy Rose Floral). Much thanks to business members who sponsored this event: Placed4Success (liquor sponsor), LA Party Rentals (tables & party rentals), Aah Inspiring Balloons (balloon lights) & Sandy Rose Floral (floral arrangements). We truly enjoy being members of the Set Decorator’s Society of America.

Plus, indie film lovers can beat the heat at Dances with Films this weekend. There are so many intriguing flicks for the horror fan here, including 20 Matches, a horror short shot entirely by match light.
