Keep the vintage look alive! There is something very nostalgic about the classic orange and black Halloween, so we came up with a couple vintage Halloween decor ideas that will keep your Halloween looking more traditional and less contemporary.

The colors of the candy corn are classic. The bright orange, white, and yellow welcomes the holiday season all the way until Thanksgiving. The best thing about a candy corn dish is that it can be used for more than just Halloween. Accessorize with themed candy and your dish will transform along with the seasons.

Put a spell on your home with your average kitchen utensils you never knew could double as unique Halloween decor. For example, a simple sauce mop could simply double as a witch’s broom. It will always be these small details that will bring your Halloween decor together.

Simple is sometimes better. So simplify your Halloween by masking it with felt. These masks look great on kids, pumpkins, adults, and everything in between. Make your Hallow’s Eve the cat’s meow.

Spooky Halloween Party Ideas

Send chills down your guest’s spine by adding what we call the creep effect to any table setting. Here are some great spooky Halloween party ideas. To start off with, add plastic spiders to your food and bone-chilling skulls to haunt your next dinner party.

We used ordinary orange colored plastic plates, which were the perfect accent to pair next to black dessert plates. They looked simply spooktastic!

Remember you can always use items around your home to add those extra details that tie it altogether. We used Halloween bracelets for our napkin rings and mismatched cutlery for an eeriness that can only mean one thing, it’s Halloween time.

What really added to our Halloween table setting was the slate cheese platter. The pale black of the slate added a smokey hue across our table that really set it apart from other table settings.

We saved the best for last. Our favorite aspect of our spooktacular table setting was the individual skull shakers. They added the bewitching effect that truly says Halloween better than the word itself.

A good tip to remember when decorating for Halloween is to utilize the season of pumpkins! Use pumpkins as decor, place settings, or centerpieces.

We’ll be posting more Halloween party ideas throughout the month of October. As always, we are always here to help, give suggestions, or fix a problem. Let us know your plans for your Halloween party and how we can help.
