How to Tastefully Decorate for Halloween

If you are like us, you may be wanting to decorate for Halloween while being stylish and tasteful at the same time. While this may sound like an impossible feat, it is actually much more simple than you might think. Below, we have given some ideas of how to achieve decorating tastefully for Halloween. 

Pick up some different sized lanterns, then fill some with candles and others with small pumpkins or gourds stacked on top of each other. This creates a very elegant feel while being festive at the same time!

Here is a great rustic twist on your average Halloween display. Simply combine large wooden pumpkins with a bushel of fall foliage, and a few lanterns placed here and there on your porch. You can also incorporate real pumpkins among the display for added interest. 

White pumpkins are a fabulous way of keeping your Halloween decor on the tasteful side. You can either buy white pumpkins, or paint any color pumpkin with white paint. Adding black letters to your crisp white pumpkins creates a gorgeous contrast.

Another classy Halloween decor idea is to tie ribbons around your pumpkin’s stalk. This creates a beautiful store bought look even though they were hand made. Again, using black and white is a great alternative to your average orange, black, and purple Halloween color scheme. 

Want to get even more crafty with your Halloween decor? Buy metal or plastic address numbers that would normally go on your house, and use them to decorate your pumpkins. You can either stack them on top of each other and have your address read from top to bottom, or place them side by side and have it read left to right. 


Here is a tasteful twist on your run of the mill Halloween wreath. Believe it or not, you can make a wreath like this out of white coffee filters, a thick black ribbon, and a few black halloween stickers!
