All Hallows Eve Goes Modern

Hello guys and ghouls! (hehe, seemed fitting to set the tone for this post) It is upon us…All Hallows Eve, our most favorite holiday!! So, in the spirit, we’ve tuned into Halloween Party Radio and geared up to show you some ways to decorate for this Happy Hump-day Halloween.

The days of simply carving a pumpkin and placing it on your front porch are long gone. Thanks to popular sites like Pinterest and Wanelo, Halloween DIY decorations have become more elaborate, ornate and detailed. Yes, spider webbing is still a necessity in our opinion – but with sophistication!

LOVE the elements of Halloween in this ghostly interior. Typically, spider webbing is used to decorate walls, tables, and the like. Here, the use of webbing in an unconventional way makes this living room sofa seem realistically frightful!

The crow is a signature Halloween element. Hang them from the ceiling of the entry way creating a hallowed sense of death as soon as you walk in the door!

Got an ugly pumpkin?

Here is a very easy  and inexpensive DIY project for your staircase, front porch or stoop. Gold and Black are a timeless combination – masculine with a hint of glamour.

To do this, simply spray paint various sized pumpkins in the color(s) of your choice. The numbers can be stenciled and painted or for a quick and exact application, pick up some vinyl numbers at your local home improvement store.

These funky black and white pumpkins, while a little more detailed, are done the same way.

Paint the pumpkins white and use black paint to create a cool pattern or draw on creepy insects. We like how they left the stems their original color for a cool contrast.

What is great about these DIY’s is you can get the pumpkins pretty cheap because you don’t have to be too concerned with how the outside looks!

We have seen a trend with black and white Halloween decor this year. The feeling is more homey, almost as if the decorations could stay all year long and not shout, “Halloween Decor”.

We can’t lie, we are a sucker for feathers and just LOVE the feather wreath and and bannister wrap used in these black and white inspired Halloween decorations.

Wreaths can be made into a decoration for any holiday and Halloween is not an exception. Actually, its the only holiday where anything goes! Feathers, muslin, skeletons, webs, you name it! Here are a few we liked, each captures the essence of Halloween in a new age fashion.

Ingredients: Simple Vase, Feathery Moss/Grass, Viney Twigs, Funky Mask, and a little Creativity makes for a really cool entry table piece!!

The key to decorating for Halloween without going overboard is to use right the combination of themed decor and everyday accessories.This fireplace mantle shows a perfect mixture both. By mixing these elements, it makes the space casual yet still festive! We especially like the use of the family portrait to add a personal touch.

 These creepy doll head candle holders are a eerie mix of modern and morbid, perfect for displaying on a mantle or table-scape.

Trick or Treat?!?

Holiday table-scaping can easily get over-themed and clutterd if not done correctly. Here, keeping consistent with the black and white theme they used their treats to create this spirited spread. Very simple and functional.

Add instant sophistication by capturing a scape in a glass dome or jar. It makes whatever is under it an instant piece of conversational art and can be changed throughout the year.

It wouldn’t be Halloween with out tons of candles scattered throughout. There is nothing more ghostly than a dark room lit with flickering candles casting ghoulish shadows from wall to wall. Drape white sheets over furniture to create an abandoned haunted house ambiance. Boo!!

So, there you have it, our modern take on Halloween this year. Time to adorn my hot pink wig and dance around the studio to Monster Mash!!

Wickedly Yours,
