On the set this Halloween with HGTV

Airing October 16th, 8:00 pm on House and Garden Television

I was fortunate enough to be asked by House and Garden Television to be one of the designers on this year’s Halloween Block Party.  Three designers, three houses, three families and three days to create spooky Halloween masterpieces.  

I worked with the Donovan Family who were up for anything.  Together we turned their house into the ultimate vampire lair – complete with creepy cemetery and chic Blood Bar.  We create an old “wrought iron” fence out of PVC and aging stone tombstones out of insulation foam. I also share entertaining how-to’s like creating blood stained party invitations, bedazzled pumpkins, filigreed candy cones and blood fondue.

  I don’t want to give away too much, so be sure to watch when it airs Saturday, October 16th at 8:00 pm.

  1. Kenneth, I absolutely LOVED this episode and your treatments were fabulous!!!! My family and I do a big Halloween party children and adults every year and will be sure to try your blood fondue. Loved the iron fence idea as well but was sorry HGTV didn't post any of the "ho-to's" to their website. Thanks for sharing the fondue recipe at least. Best, Chris in Mill Valley, CA

  2. I want to see a photo of the table with the blood fondue, pretzels for bones, strawberries for mini hearts.....

  3. Kenneth, could you post the directions on the insulation foam tombstones please? Thanks so much!~

  4. Hey Aer/3 - just posted the directions for the tombstones for you!
