West Elm - Southern Gothic Halloween Cocktail Party

Last time we checked in with Fenway Journal editor Chelsea Jenney O’Leary, she was giving us tips for unplugging at home. This fall, though, we found her nurturing her darker side — with a creepy-crawly Halloween cocktail soiree at her Nashville home. With bourbon cocktails served atop an antique printing press and served alongside a playful dollop of doom-and-gloom, this is a Southern Gothic take on autumn festivities. Nab Chelsea’s Halloween look + learn how to make her Rhubarb Tennessee Mule below! – Shop our full Halloween assortment.

4. Garnish with lime (or garnish of your choice). Serve.
