I have never done much with Halloween decorations since we didn’t have trick-or-treaters at the apartment and our anniversary is the 29th, so we are sometimes out of town over Halloween. This year I got a little inspired by this post over at Young House Love. They are using a more black and white, gothic theme this year that really got my juices flowing. I stole a few of their ideas.
In the foyer I dressed up the table using some leftover cheesecloth, a fake faux pre-lit jack-o-lantern, a black wooden cake stand (found at Goodwill), and brass-painted-black candlesticks (also found at Goodwill) with bleeding candles.
On the dining room table, I sprinkled some Dollar Tree skulls into the large hurricane that was already set up for fall.
Our candy bowl was a clearance find at Kohl’s a couple of years ago. It sits on a silly spider runner that was also picked up on clearance at Kohl’s. (Have I mentioned that I love Kohls?)
