Classy or eclectic Halloween decor —  discover your dream decor style for the upcoming witchy holiday

(5 min read) It’s here at last folks! Favorite time of the year for kids and horror freaks from around the world. From prepping your spooky costume to carving creepy faces on pumpkins, from hanging hand-made cobwebs and witch heats to eating unfathomable amounts of candy and drinking pumpkin-spice punches and lattes, there is so much to look forward to during October and the scarily fun Halloween holiday.

No matter how many times you’ve been around the block trick-or-treatin’ your pointy heat off, Halloween just never gets old. However, before the party, itself starts and the sugar rush overtakes all your senses you need to decorate your home BETTER THAN YOUR NEIGHBOOORS. Lol, just kidding… kinda… not…

So, what’s your style? What’s the vibe you are trying to capture? What’s the message you are trying to send? Are you gonna be classy and elegant and let everyone know that chic never die, or are you gonna go nuts with the scares and let everyone know you are a true ghoul at heart? If you are still in the process of making a decision, we have a couple of advices on how to achieve both that may help you find your own perfect fit and let your inner spook out.

“Classy, bougie, ratchet, sassy, moody…”

Now that I’ve achieved my 2021 goal of quoting Megan Thee Stallion in my blog post, I can tell you some steps you can take to create classy Halloween decor.

Elegant, but on point. Source Crazy Wonderful.

Firstly, you should keep it monochromatic as much as you can. And when I say “monochromatic” I don’t mean make it all orange and black just like your first-door neighbors. White is the new orange when it comes to classy Halloween decorating. Go crazy with white pumpkins, mums, and gourds, as well as plaster or porcelain skulls (real skulls are also white *wink wink) and you won’t be wrong.

Go dark with your flowers to contrast the white. The flowers can be black, burgundy, ink-blue, etc. You can go for some fresh, seasonal flowers, but you can also spray-paint some dried arrangements. It’ll look stylish either way. There are also black candlesticks, black pumpkins for a good measure, and elegant black, bats. There, how can anyone be afraid of the dark when it looks so appealing?!

Don’t forget to — downsize. I mean sure, carving and throwing 200 pounds of pumpkins out on your porch has its charm, but if you want to have a classy Halloween, small jack-o-lanterns are the way to go. The same goes for most of your other décor, so choose tiny creepy black bats, hand-sized white pumpkins, etc. Make most of your décor small and then add sudden splashes of extreme-sized big pumpkins, wicker-brooms, and pointy witch hats.

“.…(the monster mash), it was a graveyard smash…”

With all due respect to the hip-hop crowd, everyone knows you can’t do Halloween without the Monster mash in the background. Now let me give you some advice on how you can add to your Halloween mishmash décor and make it even more fun.

Playful and witchy welcome.

Eclectic Halloween décor is much about letting your creativity and inner monster run wild. Think of your favorite horror movie. Is it Halloween? Make some cut-out Michael Myer Masks and pair them up with your biggest kitchen knives, then add some splashes of fake blood (I don’t recommend real blood, cuz it’s a bummer to clean *wink wink) strategically throughout the house and place the masks and knives here and there so it looks like MM did his last big crime and left. Is it The Texas Chainsaw Massacre? Place a chainsaw next to your front door, and one of those rubber body parts on the floor? Is it Craven’s Scream?… The possibilities are endless.

Go crazy with witchy stuff, because Halloween is all about them spooky ladies. Brooms, heats, creepy cauldrons, and eerie-looking potion bottles are welcome. You can also go to the extreme and dye your good ole tabby pitch-black, but I don’t recommend it.

If you have a big budget placed aside for Halloween décor, then animatronics and fog machines are the route to take. Nothing like life-size Jason Vorhees swinging his machete in your hallway to welcome your guests, or a whole spooky graveyard in your living room to get the party started. (lol, I’m not deranged, I promise)

Whether you want to keep it cute and stylish or you are a gory décor buff, Halloween is most certainly one of the most creativity-friendly holidays out there. Whichever style you opt for — don’t forget to have fun!

    I definitely prefer the more classic Halloween decorations. We don’t do a lot of decorating here, just a bit around the outside of the house. That Beetlejuice tree is amazing though!

    I’m more of a neutral person, so I love the monochromatic look with the white and gray pumpkins and a touch of orange. I won’t be doing any Halloween decorating this year, but next year for sure!

    I’m a minimalist at heart. I’m also a reserved person who doesn’t like to draw too much attention. For Halloween — and any other holiday for that matter — I try to keep it minimal so I’ll likely go the classic route with maybe a pumpkin and fake spider webs in the corner of the front door. These decorations you’ve presented are amazing though.

    October 16, 2021 at 5:57 am

    I have to show this to my daughters. I’m sure it will inspire them for our decorations.
