As some of you MIGHT already know … Halloween is one of my favourite seasons to decorate for. It’s one of the only seasons that doesn’t matter how “pretty” it looks … and instead is more about creativity. I LOVE decking out the house and mixing gory items with pretty/dainty pieces. Don’t get me wrong, I still like to keep my pallet quite neutral and white while making the theme of Halloween shine through. Follow along below for 5 tips when it comes to decorating for Halloween this season …
Tip #1: I usually start by adding pretty pumpkins from a pumpkin patch around the house. I then move on to adding skulls, crows, rats and spiders throughout the house by switching out some of my key decor pieces and vintage finds that are interchangeable from season to season.
Tip #2: Get as gory and creative as you possibly can. Scatter jars of blood around the house … and maybe some fingers beside them … Remember this is the one holiday that you don’t need to worry about it being pretty!!
Tip #3: Pillows!!!!! This is the same tip for every season and holiday … purchase a few holiday themed pillows to switch out with some of your already-existing classics. I like adding a pop of colour if possible and for Halloween … that colour being orange (like this pillow)!!
Tip #4: If you’re having guests over, make sure you have appropriate items to eat and drink out of like this spoon, mug, goblet and straws. If you’re making food … get creative … skin grapes and put them in a bowl … or top your cupcakes off with cute toppers.
Tip #5: Finish your space off with pretty classics like a Happy Halloween banner. This will help tie in the gory decor with your overall beautiful space!!!
Here are some items to help you decorate this season … not to mention these are ALL found on Etsy and all from Canada!!!!
I hope this gets your creativity flowing early for Halloween decorating.
