Want to cause a strikingly spirited and stylish scene, this Halloween, but afraid you don’t know how? Rest easy. Whether it’s an entryway, buffet, or mantel that has you hexed, here are some great ideas for indoor Halloween decorating.
Party guests will be thoroughly entranced in no time.
HOW TO CREATE A DARKLY DIVINE ENTRYWAY
1 Prop a Skeleton with Floral Stems
Bright colors mesmerize against bone white and are a more sophisticated alternative to traditional black and orange.
2 Create a Buzz with Gold Bees
For an unexpected touch of glam here and there. Bee-guiling, and also gives a wreath or garland one-of-a-kind appeal.
3 Add Black Felt Butterflies
With wall-safe tape, they’re everywhere in minutes—a dramatic space filler. Big drama for just a little effort.
4 Finish with a Personal Touch
Add a hat, a framed photo, or a stack of vintage books. Then… just open the door and let the compliments fly in.
HOW TO SERVE GUESTS A DECADENT DINNERSCAPE
1 Begin with Blooms
Wickedly rich colors—and faux means no mess. What’s not eerily appealing about that?
2 Layer Seasonal Tableware
Black chargers, Watercolor Skulls. Layering adds depth to your tablescape design (decorator’s secret).
3 Common Table Theme
Just enough skulls: décor, glassware, plates. Everyone gets a taste of your dinnerscape, at their personal place setting.
4 Pumpkins, of Course
Think metallics to reflect candlelight and glassware. Pumpkins are perfect for preventing the setting from becoming too scary. Dig in.
HOW TO MAKE A “HOME, SWEET HALLOWEEN” MANTEL
1 First, a Mantel Scarf
Bats make a naturally scalloped border… and a mantel scarf creates a connecting component for the accents that rest on it.
2 Frame Up a Cheerful Wreath
Paint an oversized, flea-market find, so easy (and so much satisfaction in creating part of the display yourself).
3 Weave in Garland to Fill Space with Spook
Lights and faux branches are a nice touch. There’s just something inherently stirring about organic forms.
4 Pop with Eye Candy
Add colorful pumpkins, décor, and jars of the real stuff, too. Candy vessels make the overall vibe more casual and fun and (literally) draw the viewer in.
