Halloween Party

My friend Tracey and I put on a Halloween Party to benefit the Baltimore Architecture Foundation, where she’s the Director and I am on the Board.  The party was held at Tracey’s other business, Housewerks. The building is a perfect place for a Halloween party – or any other party, for that matter. It’s a Victorian gasworks building and is filled with the most amazing items and artifacts.  (This is an early picture, right after they bought the building.)early housewerks2

We didn’t have to do much to the interior of the building, except for adding some lights,  Halloweenie! 001 some spooky skeletons, Halloweenie! 003 and lots of candles.

He’s actually facing the “miners” talking, but the clown face was looking out at the group. Halloweenie! 037 Here are a couple of other views of the space before the party started.
