Tips for Halloween decor

A subtle decor approach to Halloween: If you’re taste for the holiday lends you to decorative harvest decor for your dining table, and warm interiors, consider ditching the black and orange and going for natural tones. Use white and green pumpkins, gourds, grapes, candles and neutral colors for your dining room table, fireplace mantle, and display areas. While Halloween for some means scary and dark interiors, lighten your Halloween night with a fun get-together with friends that welcomes trick-or-treaters to your door, or allows for an intimate gathering of close friends.

Pull out the spider webs: If creepy spider webs, and flying bats are more your decorative style consider these helpful tips for your Halloween party:

  • Make furniture look old: Use cotton or playful spider webs found at your local party store and stretch it over your furniture, picture frames, doorways, and anywhere throughout your interiors for an old, and abandoned haunted house interior.
  • Group specimens: For a fun decorative party table, group apothecary jars with lids with fun ‘specimens’ – candy eyeballs, plastic spiders, gummy worms, and other scary tidbits for friends and family to sample throughout the holiday.
  • Create a spooky ambiance: If you prefer a bubbling cauldron on your buffet table, use dry ice in old urns and be sure to wear gloves when handling. Use old candelabras with candles throughout your home, and dim the lights while you play sinister howls and screams in your Halloween get-together.
  • Black and white decor:  If you love black and white throughout your home all-year round, Halloween is the perfect time to bring out monochromatic decorative pieces. Consider painting pumpkins black and white, spray paint silver accents such as urns, chargers to place under dinnerware, and string white lights around your home for a festive ambiance. For a dinner party, use black and white table settings, tablecloth, and a Halloween centerpiece made from playful black birds sitting in between branches in an old urn with gardener’s grass.  Halloween doesn’t have to scream of orange and black!
