Trick or treat yo’self to these Amazon goodies!
Real Housewives of New York alum, Dorinda Medley, is known for going big around the holidays, and Halloween is certainly no exception. Every year, Dorinda hosts a big Halloween dinner at her iconic Blue Stone Manner in the Berkshires. We guess you could say she is the hallow-queen. (Sorry, we had to.)
This year, Dorinda teamed up with Amazon to turn the Manner into a “Haunted Smart Mansion” for the festivities. The Dracula themed party, with an invitation that read, “dress like you’re going to Transylvania,” had Amazon finds that were a “game changer,” according to Dorinda.
From a screaming Ring doorbell, to Amazon Smart Plugs that allow Alexa to turn on decorations, Dorinda gave trick-or-treaters pumpkin to talk about.
Dorinda, who dressed up as Dracula’s girlfriend this year, says that she decorates her home, built in 1902, with items from her grandmother, her mother and from Amazon. And while decorating the inside of your home is important, Dorinda says that “decorating starts in the entryway.”
“It’s the first impression,” said Medley. “Its where you greet trick-or-treaters, so consider how you’re setting the tone.”
Not only does decorating make Dorinda’s home spooky and festive, she loves to do it. “Decorating is just in my soul. I just think it’s a great way to welcome people, to make people feel good.” Well, it’s certainly making us feel good!
And apparently the gift of decorating runs in Dorinda’s family. “I come from a decorating family,” Dorinda told the Knockturnal. “If you went to my parents house right now, and they’re in their late eighties, you would think they have young children.”
I don’t know about you guys, but we’re hoping we’re on next years invite list!
