We love this festive time of year when we can add some holiday decorations to our homes. However, there are ways we can do it without some of the tacky items, which are better left at the dollar store. We’ve racked our brains, and the great inter web, to bring you some fab Halloween decór ideas you’ll want to leave up all year round.
Every Christmas my mom would break out our “Christmas china” for Christmas Eve dinner. We also had gold silverware for special holidays to match. So my questions is, “why does only Christmas get special dinnerware?”
We love the idea of mixing it up with some moody colors, such as black and gold, which exude Halloween vibes! Where do we find such silverware? Gold is pretty easy to find these days, but we particularly like this affordable set from Target. But why stop there? Since we’re on the subject of silverware, I need these talon salad servers now! With these utensils and some black plates, no doubt October will be super festive!
Gobblets are another dinnerware item that will dress up the table in a hurry. Plus, gobblets are 100% witch! These pumpkin wine glasses from Pottery Barn are a little less gothic, and really cute!
If you really want to go all out, find some candelabras and dim the lights to set a spooky mood!
Pumpkins & Gourds
If you heard us on Spotlight on Vegas Business radio show, this next tip won’t be much of a surprise. Pick up some pumpkins! They don’t need to be heavy, large, orange pumpkins, there are plenty of variety out there! A few white pumpkins or seasonal gourds look awesome sitting on a fireplace mantle or on the doorstep. You can also spray paint them in metallic colors for something a little more glam.
It’s easy to add a little Halloween color in other ways besides pumpkins, you know. Throw an orange (this one is on clearance!) , black (this one adds such a nice texture, too!), or fall colored blanket over the arm of your sofa for a pop of color. Other pops of color can be find through seasonal candles (which will also make your home smell wonderful!), tablecloths, door mats or wreaths.
Skulls are another item that aren’t just “in” during Halloween. You can leave these up year-round for a trendy touch! Use them as bookends, vases, shelf fillers, any way you want!
As you can see, there are so many ways you can decorate chic for this upcoming holiday! What are some of your favorite Halloween decorations in your home? Tag @AllPorJu on Instagram with your ideas!
