There is rarely a happy medium with Halloween. You either love it or hate it. While many homeowners get into the spirit of the fantasy and love the atmosphere, others could simply do without pumpkins, witches, goblins and ghosts. Whether you love it or not, Halloween is a holiday that comes every year and will continue to do so. Decorating your home for the holiday doesn’t mean that you have to give up your favorite china or change your color scheme completely.
Keep it Subtle
Halloween décor doesn’t have to be black and orange. Pumpkins come in all different colors and you can incorporate your décor into your current color scheme with a Halloween themed banner or sign. If you’re looking for something festive but not glaringly obvious, use decorations in your current color scheme.
Create a Collection
Halloween is all about trick or treating, right? Doesn’t this mean that there should always be candy around the house? Place glass vases full of different treats on end tables or countertops to provide your guests with a special treat whenever they are around. Nothing says Halloween like a vase full of black licorice next to a glass bowl of candy corn.
Spider webs are one of the creepier Halloween decorations, but are perfect for placing in the corner and forgetting about. Decorate your home with spider webs to add a subtle touch of the holiday to each room.
If you hate changing your decorations each time a new holiday rolls around, choose decorations that work for the entire season. Pumpkins and bowls of candy look great for several months, and keeping your current color scheme simplifies the process greatly.
