Spooky Styling Ideas for Halloween

Halloween is a great opportunity for decorating your house and throwing a party. What’s more, there are plenty of ways of transforming an ordinary space into a spooky and creepy display – check out some of our favourite finds and ideas!

Decorating the outside of your house is a great way to welcome your party guests and greet trick or treaters…

…whilst adorning fireplaces, doorframes, staircases and bare walls on the inside helps set the scene for your gathering – whether you want funny and quirky, tongue-in-cheek creepy or downright terrifying!

If you’re holding a more formal dinner party, plan the design of your table carefully – select an overall colour scheme for linen, stationery and flowers, and create a spooky atmosphere using low-level lighting and by incorporating subtle decorative accents…

Theming food is an excellent way of spookifying your event, whether it’s for little people…

…or grown-ups!

Remember that how you display your Halloween fare is just as important – we love these themed treat tables!

What terrifying treats do you have in store for your guests this Halloween?!


Happy Planning!
