Last-Minute Halloween Decorating? Here Are Easy Details You Can Add To Your Home

Who says Halloween has to be so scary and horrifying? If you want to spruce up your home for a Halloween party or dinner, you can actually stay on the more classy and elegant side while working with the usual Halloween elements.

With just a couple of days—or a few hours if you’re really the procrastinator type—before the Halloween celebrations kick off, dressing up your home can be a bit challenging. Here are some Halloween ideas and inspirations that are easy to pull off and elegant to look at for your home.


Use letter boards

Felt letter boards are common home and bedroom décor. Why not utilize these boards to give off a spookier feel for the Halloween? Try these witty and good vibes one-liners for your Halloween felt letter board and dress up your table to stay on theme. Make use of a black and white palette for an occasion-appropriate but classic feel.

Accentuate your space with flowers that evoke the Halloween feel

A floral arrangement is an easy but beautiful centerpiece to any dining table. For your Halloween feast, you can stick to the autumn theme and use orange blooms, with tiny pumpkin details around.

Even red roses can be made a little spooky, too! Use a nice porcelain pumpkin vase—actually, any white porcelain would look nice—and stuff some red roses in. Accentuate your centerpiece with a burnt candle and some thorns for that spooky touch.




Go for mood lighting

An easy way to make any space a little scary? Turn down the lights. Bring a little Halloween mood to your living room by using lamps, fairy lights, and candle holders. Use a combination of white and warm, orangey lights to achieve a creepy yet cozy effect. Plus points if you can find a pumpkin-shaped candle holder!





Prepare your Halloween treats

Any party is not a party without the appropriate food! With a barrage of kids knocking on your door for Trick or Treat, you can try to make some easy and homemade treats instead of overwhelming them with endless store-bought candies and chocolates. These treats also make for nice touches for your Halloween table spread, so get cooking!

Shortbread are perhaps one of the easiest and tastiest cookies to bake—and they also are a good canvas for holiday treats. Check out Bigger Bolder Baking’s 3-ingredient shortbread cookies to whip up a batch easy, and then get decorating! Start icing your cookies with a mixture of 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or other flavoring extract, 2 tablespoons milk or water, and food coloring put in a squeeze bottle for easy decorating.

You can also bake some cupcakes and use sugar fondant for making the toppers. You can do these with the kids, too! A pumpkin vase for your succulent will be a cute table accent as well.




Pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins!

Pumpkins really are the easiest things to add to any Halloween setup. Go crazy with different sizes of pumpkins, which you can arrange as is, or decorate and paint for added effect.





And if you’re using fresh pumpkins, instead of carving them out, you may also wrap them nicely in cloths so you can still use them for cooking afterwards!



Happy Halloween!
