Halloween Decorating with Style

October 24, 2010

This week is all about Halloween, so let’s spook up your home in style! My favorite time of year is Fall and I’m so thankful to live in the best part of the country ~ the Adirondacks in upstate NY ~ to experience the beautiful candy-corn colors of the changing trees. Once the first leaves start falling outside, I remove the summer decor and replace it with pumpkin-colored candles, warm comfy blankets, and Fall florals….and then right around the corner is Halloween. I usually don’t decorate specifically for the holiday, except with a few pumpkins amongst my Fall decor. But I was inspired to put together this blog with the carving of our pumpkins over the weekend. If you haven’t decorated yet or are preparing for a fun Halloween party this weekend, be inspired with some stylish, yet SPOOKY decor!
Love these SPOOK-TACULAR pumpkin tiers creating a forest look,
complete with a crescent moon on top!

Look at this super simple, yet chic front entrance table. Poke some holes in the top of your pumpkin and stick some branches inside. Cut some bats out of black construction paper and you are set for a GHOUL (instead of cool, haha) batty-tree!

With draped cheesecloth that is shredded and torn, you can create quite a spooky display! Use your everyday black candlesticks and replace the candles with pumpkins. Fill some jars with candy corn, and you’re set!
Love these easy to make Halloween treats! Frost, slice-n-bake cookies with white icing, then pipe 3 black circles. Take a toothpick and drag it from the center to the edge to create these awesome SPIDERWEB COOKIES.
Such a cute idea that the kids can help with. SIMPLE, SIMPLE, SIMPLE!
Poke 8 holes ~ 4 on each side ~ into the pumpkin. Then using black 8 pipe
cleaners about 6-8″ long, poke the wire into the hole and form the pipe cleaners into spider legs…VOILA…a SPIDER PUMPKIN.

What a stylish, yet elegantly designed fireplace mantel using white pumpkins. You can find white pumpkins anywhere ~ they’re almost as readily available as the typical orange colored pumpkins. Simply, paint the letters B-O-O on each pumpkin and you’ve created a work of Art! Using some ivy from the craft-store, spray paint it black, change out your candles to black, and add a few ghords and you have an awesome mantel for the holiday!

HAVE A SPOOK-TACULAR HALLOWEEN!

    No nice to find your blog. Thank you for letting me know. Gorgeous Halloween decor. I love all of the vignettes. You might want to join my Table Top Tuesday parties. Every Tues. I host a blog party where we all show off our table vignettes. It can be kitchens, bathrooms, end tables, bookcases, shelves or just any place that we create vignettes. It's a good way to have people find your blog. Hugs, Marty

  5. Hi Jenna,

    Love, love, love these great ideas for snazzy decorating for Halloween. But most of all, I want to encourage you to keep collecting and displaying those spoons. Years ago I had a huge collection from every little city and place visited during my husband's 3-year foreign duty assignment as an Air Force officer stationed at Ramstein AB in Germany. Well, many moves later, I somehow lost all the spoons, and I cannot tell you how much I wish I still had them. What wonderful memories such silly little thing can provide.

    I've signed on as a follower, and as a once-upon-a-time designer, I look forward to visiting your site and seeing your inspirations.

    Peggy

    Thanks Peggy for becoming a follower and taking interest in my site! Sometimes (actually, most of the time) when I write, I really don't think anyone is reading, but when I receive a comment like yours, I know the many hours I spend, is all worth it!! SO A BIG THANK YOU! Your story about your spoon collection was wonderful to read, and who knows, maybe one day they will show up. I had the same thing happen with art that I bought when visiting Paris years ago. Somehow it was 'misplaced' and after 3 moves, I still think that one day they may show up (wishful thinking, I guess). Thanks again for FOLLOWING!
