Regardless of what’s awaiting inside, greet visitors and trick-or-treaters in Halloween style with a spirited doormat (pun intended). This Crate & Barrel Scaredy Cats doormat is a little atypical from the usual pumpkin or spider web motif, especially with unexpected colors like purple, making it a choice both fun and unique.
Often the subtlest objects become the scariest. Intersperse a few of these Scary Tree Eyes from Plow & Hearth among your yard and your guests will find themselves looking into an spooky pair of eyes when they least expect it.
Continue the Halloween theme within the trees by topping your branches with this black Eames bird from Design Within Reach. Or, if you’re not looking to go over the top, simply place them amongst your interior for an understated Halloween theme. Let’s face it: black crows or spooky cats will instantly add a chill to any home.
It’s hard to escape Halloween without a pumpkin or two. Make your space unique by choosing one a bit out of the ordinary, like the Grapevine Pumpkin from Target. It may not hold a candle, but a string of white holiday lights will brighten your walkway just as effectively (and more safely).
The “Bejeweled” White Halloween Pumpkins from Horchow feel as magical as they are unexpected. If Cinderalla had a second chance to choose a pumpkin for a carriage, I’m pretty sure she’d go with one of these.
When the guests arrive, treat them to a cocktail complete with creepy Frankenstein beverage napkins from Z Gallerie.
Have a little fun with the cocktails themselves by using Martha Stewart’s Halloween Beverage Labels from Grandin Road…
… and consider a Halloween accent for your wine bottles, like the Olivia Riegel Skull wine toppers, also from Grandin Road.
Mix a celebrated print with a Halloween vibe with the Marimekko Kumina tablecloth from Crate & Barrel. The pumpkins and colorway hint to the holiday without being over the top.
Even holidays like Halloween can be privy to a sophisticated presentation. The Delft Skull Plates from DL & Company are as artistically stimulating as they are unnerving.
Every great dinner table needs a great centerpiece. Have a little holiday fun with the Black Wire Ornament Tree from Pier 1.
Of course, ghoulish accessories are a must. These metallic spiders from Z Gallerie will add a little fright in a stylish fashion.
No Halloween-esque home is complete without a skull, and no chic Halloween-esque home is complete without a skull with a little pizzazz, like the glitter skulls from West Elm.
Or, consider a collection of skull ornaments from Z Gallerie. Hang them in unexpected places, like doorknobs or lamp switches.
There are no rules that Halloween décor must be all orange and black: make your space your own by creating your own color scheme. Neon skull candles from DL & Company will help you do just that.
While you’re at it, you might as well put out the candles with skull snuffers, also from DL & Company.
Glass jars are forever chic, and they also make a great spot to store colorful candy. Load up the Franscesca Jars from Z Gallerie with your favorite treats and place them throughout the house.
Remember, Halloween décor doesn’t always need to scream Halloween. A simple black and orange throw pillow can add just the holiday hint to your space.
