Decorating your Home for Spooky Season

As the seasons shift, so do the trends in home decor, and Halloween decorating is undeniably gaining momentum. Want to join the spooktacular fun this year? Here are our top picks for transforming your home, inside and out.

Let's start with the outside.

Pumpkins and Mums: Go the extra mile by painting them pink to match this year's trend. Stack them up on your front steps for a cheerful welcome.

Bats: So many bats, we love the way they look arranged around the front door.

Ghosts: These ghost are definitely on the friendly side. Arrange them on your front steps or in your yard. We're currently obsessing over these cuties from Pottery Barn.

Witch hats and Brooms: Embrace the witchy vibes by hanging witch hats and brooms in unexpected places. Adding lighting can make them even more enchanting.

Spiders: Large hairy spiders seem to be taking over the neighborhood. You see them on large spider webs or crawling all over the house. Very similar to the skeletons of years past.

Skeletons: While traditional skeletons are still classic, animal skeletons and towering 8-foot skeletons are the latest trend.

Let's move things inside now shall we?

Natural elements: This is more than likely the route we'll go this year. Think a variety of pumpkins and gourds, dried flowers, wheat and so many candles. Place them on your mantle or create a centerpiece on your dining room table.

Floating Candles: If our kids were little I would have these hanging over my kitchen island, in the front entry and going up the stairs for a fun but spooky vibe. The ones I found on Amazon come with a wand to turn on and off. What kid wouldn't love that?

Bats: Bats are popping up everywhere in home decor. Arrange them around your favorite artwork, place them inside a lamp shade, going up the stairs, on your kitchen cabinets or my favorite, create a window display. This way you decorate the outside too.

Witch Hats: We see these popping up in the same places as the floating candles. We recommend pairing witch hats with floating candles for a fun and enchanting combination.

Skeletons in your fireplace: If you're tired of displaying your skeleton in the usual way, why not break the mold and place skeleton parts in your fireplace for a surprising and eerie Halloween display.

Do we have you excited and ready to decorate? We created an Idea List on Amazon with all our favorites. You can check them out here.
