Trick or Treat Your Home for Halloween

To get you started, we’ve selected a few of our favorite Halloween inspired pins on Pinterest. These ideas will surely spruce up your home, plus, we’ve created a fun, FREE printable perfect for your table setting or dessert bar (scroll down to grab it!).

What’s white, black and orange all over? Your Halloween table setting! Decorate your table over-the-top with checkers, plaid or even lace. We repinned this look from Good Housekeeping that we think ties in a humble get-together with the season.


Match your table setting with a pumpkin made to perfection. Opt for a no-carve pumpkin that is fuss-free and as easy as (dare we say it?)….pumpkin pie! One of the most creative ideas we stumbled upon was a succulent arrangement that is both elegant and rustic like this one from Citygram Magazine.

DIY Pumpkins


This look below from The Decorated House is ideal for any entryway. Although it looks quite intricate it is actually quite simple to pull off! Start with artificial white web, use vases made of mercury glass or even ones that have tarnished, skim through old black and white photos, dust off those antique books & of course add a raven or two (fit for Edgar Allen Poe!). Once complete you will have a Gothic entryway fit for a haunted manor.
