Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

As a regular on TV's Bewitched, Kasey Rogers (Louise Tate) has the right pedigree to produce Halloween Crafts: Eerily Elegant Decor. She and coauthor Mark Wood have dreamed up some pretty innovative approaches to such timeworn Halloween delights as pumpkin carving, table decorating, and party giving. Rather than limit carving to traditional orange pumpkins, they offer devilish red imps made of bumpy gourds and green glow-stick eyes, or a jaunty goblin king carved of green hubbard squash. A decrepit old butler figure presides over the "graveyard tea," and the "harvest of skulls" centerpiece features a tower of grinning plastic skulls topped with drippy black (electric) candles. A quartet of simple recipes makes up the "Boo-fey," along with two versions of punch contributed by another Bewitched alumnus, Bernard Fox (Dr. Bombay). The home-snapshot quality of the photographs is the one weak spot in this otherwise commendable book. Still, enough details are generally visible to help clarify the occasionally confusing directions, and the step-by-steps are mostly adequately explained. A source list provides contact information for the harder-to-find items. --Amy Handy

Martha Stewart's Halloween book is also good, but Kasey Rodgers is so much better!
Christina L. Bogle
It's rare to find a book like this that isn't a digest of previously-published magazine articles.

Last year I stopped into the our local bookstore and came across this wonderful book for Halloween! Most Halloween books really come across as chitchy and more for the kids, but this one really stood heads above the crowd! Since I'm not into the kid element, this book really can make or break your Halloween party! Just great stuff in here! I used a few of the recepies for the Spider punch, and the cookies. Also did the stone pumpkins. They were a hit at my party! I didn't have much time to use the ideas last year, but since the party was so successful, we are going to keep this book at hand from now until up until October! The projects are insightful and just great! Who thought of spraying Fleckstone to make Graveyard Stone Pumpkins?! We did the Orchard Stone statue and wanted to create the Amature Butler, but didn't have time. This year our Jack Skellington costume will be stuffed and built with the amature project in this book. We just finished making our first "Drippy Black Candle" and WOW! All I can say is this party this year will be fabulous! Most of the projects are clearly designed for adult entertaining, with none of those cheap kiddy elements, with paper masks and cardboard costumes. FINALLY something THEATRICAL!!!! Now you can have Phantom of the Opera style candles flickering though the house! Very elegant, wonderful ideas! All of them here are just fabulous, creepy, yet without going overboard into the gory, horror-movie style. Hey, let's make Halloween into a great, elegant, FUN holiday to celebrate! Adults love to have fun too, and since Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, this book really raises the bar with your haunted house and trick or treat home decorating.
Martha Stewart's Halloween book is also good, but Kasey Rodgers is so much better! More Kasey, more! Do you think you could fire up some wonderful Christmas crafts for us too? ;-)

So many halloween books are geared towards kids -- it's refreshing to find one aimed at adults. And adults with style, not just adults who like blood & gore. This book has crafts & decorations for a very elegant adult Halloween celebration. In these projects, skulls nestle among fall leaves & flowers, candles glow dramatically, & silken banners flutter in the wind. The photos are lavish, the instructions are clear, & the projects require only basic tools & sewing skills. I've been making Halloween decorations for years, but this book had beautiful new ideas I hadn't thought of & that I hadn't found in other books.

This is a well thought out, easy to follow book. Lots of pictures make this book a must buy for anyone who hosts an adult Halloween party. These are not like those easy, cutesy "country" projects you get in most books; instead they are more sophisticated for the mature Halloween addict. Most of the projects will take some time to make, so buy this book well in advance of the Halloween season. I also enjoyed the recipes and especially the patterns and templates the author provides. I recommend this book to anyone who loves Halloween and is serious about decorating.

I'm a true Halloween addict, I must confess. Every year by July I'm "chomping at the bit" to find new and more inventive Halloween craft, decorating, and party ideas, and this book truly fits the bill. Although I have several Halloween craft and party books and enjoy them all, this will be one that I will definitely be using over and over in the years to come. Finally! a Halloween craft and decorating book with not only clear, concise directions to go along with the excellent color photographs, but a plethora of wonderfully ELEGANT ideas for a "spooktacular" Halloween party as well. None of the overly gorey, "kitchy" stuff here! More like the elegance of the parties that those of the Victorian era must have enjoyed. BRAVO! and Kudos to you, Miss Rogers, PLEASE! Do write more, perhaps for some other holidays as well!

This isn't some craft book with ideas that seem impossible to do! Everything seems so simple to make and well worth the time to do it! The tombstones are beautiful and I plan on making them this year! I love this book.
If you're into creating your own Halloween decor, this book is totally for you! Well worth the $$.

After having rejected most of the Halloween decor books, I discovered this delightful book. It seems as though most other books are "little kid" and "cutesy," which is not my goal. However, neither is blood and gore. This book offered exactly what I sought. Many of the projects are simply outstanding, such as the "Harvest of Skulls Centerpiece" and the "Creepy Drippy Candles." These projects, while creepy and eerie, project a degree of sophistication.
I have several other Halloween books that I've gathered over the last few years, but this one is by far my favorite!!

I have to reiterate what the prior reviewers have said. This is a FABULOUS book. Incredibly imaginative, yet sophisticated. I love the red gourd imps. I bought this book last year immediately before Halloween, and wasn't able to utilize it as it was too late to make anything. But, I was able to buy a supply of ears to use this year on my imps. Buy the book! You WON'T regret it!
