The season of trick-or-treating, fancy dress and pumpkin carving is here! Dressing up your home in preparation for the festivities can create a fun and spooky look to greet guests and get them in the mood for a ghoulish gathering.

Of course, you can fill your home with cheap n’ cheerful bits from your local supermarket but if you want to give your home a more sophisticated or elegant look this scary season, then leave those aside and have a look at our favourite ways to dress your home for Halloween.

Sophisticated styling

From dressers and sideboard to consoles and coffee tables, add some classy Halloween decor to your furniture by displaying different colours and sizes of pumpkins and a delicate dusting of fairy lights. And, as if by magic, you’ve got a grown-up look that will sit nicely in your home for the autumn season.

Seasonal delights

Give your living room a subtle Halloweeen update with artfully displayed munchkins (mini pumpkins), seasonal foliage and a pumpkin spice-scented candle. Burnt orange velvet cushions and a roaring fire create an atmosphere that’s perfect for spooky movie nights!

Dinner party decor

Halloween is the perfect excuse to host a grown-up dinner party. For the ultimate in sophistication, opt for a neutral colour palette that incorporates cream munchkins, pretty vintage glassware and elegant napkins and tableware. Of course, we’d still recommend fancy dress, after all, it’s a bit of fun that only happens once a year!
