Setting the Scene for a Spooky Halloween

Two Jack O' Lanterns

Halloween is fast approaching, and you know what that means. It’s time, once again, to transform your home from haute to haunted! Following are some eerily elegant decorations and ideas to help you set the scene for a spooky Halloween.

Dress up your door
Want to make a chillingly chic first impression? Decorate your front door with a spooktacular wreath! Pumpkin luminaries and a simple seasonal door mat add additional curb appeal.  

Add ambiance to your entry
Nothing says Halloween quite like witches’ hats and broomsticks. To give guests a fashionable fright, use fishing wire to suspend a trio of hats from the ceiling (learn how here) and prop a large broom against the wall.

Decorate your kitchen
Halloween-themed dish towels are an easy and impactful way to inject holiday spirit into your home. Set a large witch’s brew serving cauldron on your center island or counter and add some seasonal signs, like this one, for extra flair.

Set a scary table
A lacy cobweb table runner like this is a spooky yet sophisticated addition to any Halloween table. Pair it with dramatic black metal candelabras (elegant enough for year-round use) and these frighteningly beautiful raven cocktail coasters!

Make over your mantel
Give your mantel a spine-tingling makeover with this eye-catching spiderweb scarf. Add some gold-brushed black pumpkins for an extra dose of glam!

Spruce up your sofa
Last, but certainly not least, adorn your sofa with Halloween throw pillows—we’re kind of partial to this boo-tiful one! Or, recover your existing throw pillows with stylish seasonal covers, like this one.
