The right Halloween decorations can get your space in the spooky spirit and looking fabulous. However, one wrong move and your room can look nightmarish… not exactly in a festive way.

These are just a few of the many ways to bring in a festive look without feeling garish!

Unique Vignettes

A vignette is a fantastic way to add merry flair to your home without going overboard. Just arrange a small group of objects that you like together.

Pink Pumpkins

Pink is the perfect color for all seasons. Halloween doesn’t have to be filled with black and orange decorations. Give pink a try and see how it looks! It might be spookier than you’re expecting.
