So, have you started hoarding Halloween decoration ideas to spread the magic of the holiday all around you? Whether you’re a huge Halloween fan or you’re in it just for the trick-or-treating (because who can resist all that sweet candy, after all!), we’ve got some scary good Halloween decoration ideas for everyone!
Welcome Your Guests In Style
Want to give a warm, festive welcome to your guests? Nothing beats a gorgeously decorated Halloween wreath! Craft a spooky wreath using a grapevine twig wreath and black plume feathers or keep things simple and opt for a sophisticated wreath decor featuring foam wreath base and orange and green ribbons to reinforce the classic holiday colors. Hang the wreath on your front door or entryway wall for a spooktacular welcome.
Display Creative Halloween Signs
Get your guests in the festive mood even before they enter the party venue with creative Halloween signs. Take a look at these fun Halloween sign ideas that will surely scare up some giggles and cackles!
Throwing a costume party? Let the ghosts, goblins, ghouls, witches, vampires, and monsters in and put up a sign to keep the boring humans away! Stick up a pole in your front yard and hang chalkboard signs or rectangular wooden plaques to display a list of creatures allowed to enter your Halloween party adding a fun and silly element to your outdoor holiday decor.
Have a knack for coming up with punny phrases? Show off your wit and display them front and center on your porch. Use a rectangular hanging wood sign or easel stand to put your thoughts into words and spread the holiday magic all around!
Dress Up The Balloons
Have you got your Halloween costume sorted out? Don’t leave the balloons behind and dress them up with fabric for a mysterious appeal. Cover transparent or colored balloons with black tulle fabric tying the ends with a shiny black satin ribbon to boost the aesthetics to a whole new level of witchy elegance.
Light Up The Night
Although just throwing on white linen over your head and putting on a pair of dark colored glasses is too mainstream and boring for a Halloween costume, this lighted garland with sheet ghosts is quite the opposite! Suspend bulb string lights all over your place and outfit the bulbs with white linen napkins securing them with ribbons. Add facial features to your mini sheet ghosts using a black marker or rhinestone stickers creating a freaky garland that’ll spread smiles in the day and brighten up your space when the sun goes down!
Whip Up A Freaky Tablescape
Decorating a tablescape for any holiday is fun, but setting up a Halloween table is a dream come true for any designer, don’t you agree? Channel your creativity and create a tablescape using both seasonal and holiday accents for a surreal appeal. Drape the table with a black tablecloth and spread an orange organza table runner on top for a striking contrast. For the centerpiece, bedeck a natural wooden planter or wicker basket with decorative grass, faux fall foliage and pumpkins while arranging a few sunflower stems on the side for a captivating allure. Also, scatter around a handful of fall leaves on the table and position a carved pumpkin topiary to bring in the Halloween charm.
Pick Your Treats
Need Halloween decoration ideas that double as treats? Whip up some devilishly delicious appetizers and desserts and adorn them with holiday-inspired party picks. Use long black loop ring picks or attach foam sheet animal cutouts on paddle-shaped bamboo picks for a stunning thematic presentation.
Create A Boo-tiful Floral Arrangement Centerpiece
Give your floral arrangement a spooktacular twist by hiding little surprises in it. Opt for dark and dusty toned tall stem flowers such as lavender stems, burgundy foxglove orchids or burgundy amaranthus flower stems and pop them in a vase to imbue a ghoulish splendor into your Halloween party decorations. Create cute little holiday-themed props using glitter foam sheets and long bamboo skewers or paper straws and arrange them along with your floral stems to add a fang-tastic charm to your centerpiece.
