I'm planning an Edgar Allan Poe theme party for a corporate group which is meeting near Baltimore, MD. I'll be setting up in a ballroom.
Thus far I've started a Poe tombstone replica (the large white square one in Westminister cemetery) from foam along with 2 brick columns and black iron fence. I'll be incorporating misc other tombstones and black trees with purple lights filled with ravens in the graveyard section.
I'm also thinking of incorporating a victorian room set up with a chair, fireplace, lamp, old books (Poe poetry of course) and flickering candles.
I searched high and low for the large raven on ball that Michael's had a while back, but haven't found anything. I wanted to use these to cap off the columns.
I've made most of the detail parts to the Poe tombstone (harp, leaves, acanthus leaf corners and Poe bronze image) and cut out the main walls. The part I'm still unsure of is replicating the curved top trim.
Also trying to think of good names for the food dishes.
Any suggestions or things to add?
