Colorful leaves tumbling to the ground, pumpkin spice everything, and warm sweaters and blankets make autumn the coziest time of the year. And let us not forget about Halloween, the day that begins the start of more holiday cheer as the months get colder!
Since spooky season is right around the corner, it’s time to break out the Halloween decorations, and get into the spirit. However, the plastic decorations you normally find at the store, like tombstones, fake spider webs, and purple bats don’t exactly scream “chic.” If you’re looking to decorate for Halloween, but don’t want to stray from your current home style, check out these classy and sophisticated ideas incorporating Halloween plant decor — the perfect inspo to help you get festive!
Whether it’s adding a fall wreath to your front door, a mystical Halloween centerpiece to your dinner table, or dried flowers to your bookshelf, autumn florals can help you achieve a trendy yet chic style. Get inspired with these mood boards, and print out the pumpkin carving stencils we created so you can decorate your home with some beautiful crafts.
A Chic Dinner Party
After the neighborhood trick-or-treating, enjoy a fancy dinner table spread in the comfort of your own home! Invite your closest friends or your family to take part in a classy yet spooky dinner party. The sophisticated tablescape below includes beautiful fall flowers, a flowy table runner, and cool candlesticks.
Autumnal Front Porch
Opt for spooky, yet seasonal front porch decorations for Halloween this year that put out the perfect fall vibes. This time of year, be sure to incorporate chrysanthemums in red, orange, or yellow. These will also ensure your front steps are nice and bright! You can also add a fall wreath or a few carved pumpkins.
Decor for Spooky Shelving
Typical colors that are seen throughout the Halloween season are usually purple or bright orange — but these hues don’t always compliment a sophisticated interior. To avoid this, you pick decorative items within a more neutral color palette to still achieve the spooky look. Decorate your home with subtle elements like white pumpkins, black candles, or a gold-covered skull used as a bookend. These simple touches will transform your space in a tasteful way.
Printable Pumpkin Carving Stencils
Instead of going to a Halloween party or taking the kids door-to-door for trick-or-treating, get together with your close friends or family and carve some pumpkins! I mean, is it even Halloween without carved pumpkins? This activity is not only fun but will also give you some classically spooky decor to spice up your home or porch with.
Below is another festive pumpkin stencil for your home! Carve the design into your traditional pumpkin or trace and paint them onto a funky winter squash to ensure you’ll send a clear message to anyone looking for a scare. If the “Boo” is not enough, maybe write a Halloween quote or poem on your masterpiece that’ll keep the evil spirits away.
However you like to decorate for Halloween, these sophisticated ideas will help you keep your interior looking classy and chic for spooky season. Plus the pumpkin carving stencils will help you get crafty and add some unique pumpkin decorations to your home!
