Friday the 13th Inspired Table Decor

Hey everyone! Today is my Birthday and to celebrate I created a "Friday the 13th" inspired table setting. Personally I view the 13th as a lucky day ;) but traditionally it has been viewed as a very unlucky number. I used this as an excuse to explore my love of Gothic decor. When I was planning this shoot I immediately thought of the old tree stumps at Rattlesnake Lake they remind me of Tim Burton trees and I knew they would make the perfect makeshift table. Apparently Rattlesnake Lake used to be a small town called Moncton the town flooded and is no longer there all that is left is the lake and creepy logged trees. I just kept imagining how cool a wedding would be out there by the water (if it weren't so muddy!) using all of the stumps for tables. When I was deciding on a theme for this shoot I was excited to discover that my birthday was on it's original Friday the 13th date and if you are planning a similar event here is a list of the next freaky Fridays to come. Also, I found so many awesome craft items at the Spirit Store and since Halloween is over everything is 60% off. I hope you enjoy this post, I really enjoyed designing it and I think there will be a lot more table decor and event design posts in the near future.
