Behind the Curtain | Hauntingly Beautiful Halloween 2014 – The “Before”

I love design blogs and I love design shows. I especially love great “before” and “after” comparison pictures. And the only thing I love more than that is when they show the “Great Reveal”. That’s when some lucky home, restaurant or bakery owner sees their newly remodeled home, restaurant or bakery (I may or may not [...]

Behind the Curtain | Hauntingly Beautiful Halloween 2014 – Halloween in July

Behind the Curtain | Hauntingly Beautiful Halloween 2014 – Welcome To My Nightmare

As a visual merchandiser, I spend a great deal of time working on displays and interacting with customers as they come and go. I do tend to overhear some conversations as well which leads me to this observation. I’ve noticed something over the past few years that seems even more apparent this year. […]

Behind the Curtain | Night Gallery – Music For The Monsters

One of the questions we get most often in the Halloween Room is “What about the MUSIC? Who is it? Where can I find it?? I MUST HAVE IT!!!”. Some of you can get pretty intense (and a little scary), SO without further ado, here is the list of the magnificent melodies you will encounter [...]

Behind the Curtain | Night Gallery – It’s All About the Art

I love this years Halloween theme Night Gallery. Although Rogers Gardens is primarily a nursery where you can find a huge variety of the finest plant materials, they are also very supportive of the arts. On a daily basis you can come in and see beautiful plein air paintings by some of the area’s best [...]

Behind The Curtain | Night Gallery – Creepy Crawlers Give Me The Heebie Jeebies.

I don’t like bugs. OK I don’t like “most” bugs. I will take a cute ladybug or pillbug any day but keep those arachnids away from me! Due to this phobia aversion of mine there is an area in the Night Gallery that causes me extreme discomfort. It is the ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ area otherwise known (to [...]

Behind The Curtain | Night Gallery – Let the games begin!

Things are really ROLLING along in our Halloween Room (get it?). It’s getting crazy in here but there’s no need to LOSE YOUR HEAD (see where I was going with this?)! But if you do lose it, we’ll find it and display it in an attractive glass dome vignette. […]

Behind the Curtain | Night Gallery – Halloween 2013

Wow! Where does the time go? I can’t believe we’re starting on our annual Halloween set up this week! I mean, I can believe it because we’ve been working on certain display elements for the past couple of months, but still to be emptying out the space in the Garden Rooms and watching the black [...]

Behind the Curtain – There’s no turning back!

It’s here! Blackstone Manor officially opened last Friday to many enthusiastic customers! If you are planning on coming out to see it, there is still plenty of time. And as everyone is enjoying this years Halloween Room, I thought it would be fun to post some pictures from some previous years set ups. There’s no [...]
