Halloween Ideas in our Home

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.

Today we are sharing some fun halloween ideas in our home and simple ways to get a little spooky. I prefer more of an elegant spooky look as does my mom. We were invited to participate in the 20 Ways to Decorate for Halloween Tour hosted by Randi at Randi Garrett Design and I was so excited to say yes. We don’t typically decorate a lot for Halloween so this was a great excuse to do so! I have also inserted a few affiliate links to the products in case you are interested.

If you are coming from A Blissful Nest, welcome!

So lets get started. I will keep the chatting to a minimum ;).

Family Room

I kept the Orange pillows and throw from HomeGoods from our Fall Home Tour a couple weeks ago and mixed in black and white pillows from Target and Pottery Barn along with a couple graphic Halloween pillows.

The hanging black wreath from Pier One helps coordinate the black and white pillows and add a sophisticated spooky elegance to the room.

I hit up Michaels Crafts for the fun faux black hydrangeas and roses along with the Halloween cloche and HomeGoods for the fun candy dishes.

You can find the pumpkins and candle sticks at HomeGoods and I also grabbed a couple from the dollar bin at Target.

Mantel

I had a little fun in PicMonkey with the Happy Halloween saying on the fireplace :). I picked up these fabulous skeletons from HomeGoods and I love how they look on our mantel.

Paired with black netting and gauze, along with candles, these guys seem to be right at home.

Simple elegance.

The branch stems are from HomeGoods and covered in a cotton fabric. I have no idea if they are meant for Halloween but they looked really cool in the store so I thought I would give them a try on our mantel.

Bathroom

A creepy black candle holder from HomeGoods along with a black towel was perfect for the bathroom.

Kids Cupcakes

Of course, a fun cupcake display for kids playdates (or even adults) is kind of fun during the Halloween season. My son likes to have friends over and their eyes always bug out when they see a fun buffet of treats. Who ever said that Halloween couldn’t be sophisticated? I hope you enjoyed these quick and easy halloween ideas!

  3. I have to admit to being obsessed with all things Halloween since childhood and now into grandparenthood! The decorating is a little less- no indoor cornstalks or hay bales, but lots of pumpkins. I do adore your simply elegant choices. Your mantle is perfect and love the black wreath. You can’t go wrong with black&white with splashes of orange at Halloween! Thank-you for sharing your home and lovely photos.
