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.
