I love decorating for Halloween, and have so much fun each year deciding on a theme. Do I want to go extra spooky, or go with a cuter, more pumpkin themed look?

ENTER IF YOU DARE
A seasonal welcome mat is always such a fun touch. I love to rotate my welcome mats throughout the year, so I was super excited to find so many fantastic options for the Halloween season. They’re such an easy piece of decor, and they add a really unique and personal touch to your entryway. Cute, funny, spooky, or witty – there are so many options to choose from, so invite your guests to enter if they dare and choose a welcome mat they will love!
Trick or treat? That’s the question of the hour when Halloween rolls around, so I love this fun and creative touch that this welcome mat adds. Will you be giving out tricks or treats this year? Flip the mat to give your guests a hint. Only time will tell…
Nothing gets you in the Halloween spirit quite like Peanuts. If you have young kids or just plan to go for a less creepy approach with your Halloween decoration technique this year, it’s never a bad idea to spend the season with Snoopy, everyone’s favorite pop culture pup. This mat is so wholesome and cute, and I know my son would love it! It will make you smile all season long.
Did someone say boo?! No? Well, you just might give your guests a bit of a fright with this welcome mat. While the ghost pattern may be super cute, it has a trick as well as a treat – it lights up when stepped on! I love the fun surprise, and it makes a great harmless “trick” for little ones.
All true Harry Potter fans know that the real way to open a door is through a single word: Alohomora. Add a wizarding flair to your front door this year with this mat – and for an extra-magical touch, the keys light up. Harry Potter fans, trust me – you need this mat in your life.
HALLOWEEN 2023 WREATHS
When you have guests over or the trick-or-treaters come knocking, the first thing they will see is your front door. That’s why I love to have a fun wreath each Halloween. Wreaths can also be used inside the house as a great statement piece hanging over the mantle, so don’t be afraid to grab more than one that you love! You can use wreaths in your decor in so many ways.
This autumn leaf wreath is so warm and inviting. If you’re going for a cozy Halloween look this year, or just want a look that is more autumnal than Halloween-centric, this is the wreath for you – it’s the perfect way to welcome in the season.
Looking for the perfect creepy wreath? Say no more! This black trailing wreath is such a perfect statement piece. I think it would look great above the mantle surrounded by fake cobwebs and tall candelabras.
CREEPY CRAWLY KITCHENWARE
Some of my favorite Halloween decor items that I found while shopping this year were for the kitchen! From spooky bowls and plates to creepy wine glasses and fun serving dishes, I loved the range of options that I discovered. These pieces will especially come in handy if you plan to host or entertain this Halloween season – no party is complete without a fun spread of food, and these dishes and serving tools will take your spooky food to the next level.
Tell me these aren’t the cutest serving dishes you’ve ever seen! I want to keep them on my table filled up with candy all month long. I love the variety of sizes, and I love that you can use the tiny ghost trio for anything from small loose candy to condiments.
Want to create a dessert your guests will never forget? This skull cakelet pan is so fun and creative, and can be used to make some fun and creepy cakes. It’s perfect for your next Halloween party!

Ready to create some spooky charcuterie – some charspookerie, if you will? This spiderweb cheese board is classically creepy, handcrafted from marble and brass and ready to add a fun touch to your table. Bonus points if you surround the cheese board with fake cobwebs!

HANGING DECOR FOR HALLOWEEN 2023
What haunted house is complete without spiderwebs? This 10′ giant spiderweb can be used in so many different ways throughout your decor, making it the perfect thing to throw in your cart and add last minute as the space needs.
I love how dainty and minimalistic this pumpkin garland is, and could these colors be any cuter? I think this would be a great piece to add a festive touch to a smaller space, and the fact that it’s more of an autumnal decoration than strictly Halloween means you can leave it up all season long!
This spooky hanging garland is paired with rain lights for a perfectly eerie touch to your Halloween decorations. If you want to feel a little extra witchy, this garland will have you there in no time.

Elegant meets creepy with a dramatic flair with this Serpentine Wine Bottle Holder. I’m obsessed with the luxurious touch that it adds to the room. It’s a perfect accent and would look fabulous at a Halloween dinner party – perhaps themed after your favorite Halloween horror film?

These LED signs can be seen all over Instagram for events from weddings to birthday bashes and beyond. Now, bring the style to your upcoming Halloween party! I love how trendy and fun this sign is, and the font is a super cute choice.
HOW TO DECIDE ON YOUR HALLOWEEN 2023 THEME
Now that you’ve seen some of my favorite decor for the season, how do you plan to decorate for the season? There are so many styles and themes to choose from, it can be hard to know where to begin! Trust me, I get it. That’s why I wanted to offer up a few suggestions as you plan our your perfect Halloween costumes and decor for Halloween 2023.
Decorate your house for the spookiest night of the year! Think lots of cobwebs, smoky haze bubbling up from a witch’s cauldron (pro tip: dry ice is your friend!), and decorations that put the trick in trick-or-treat. If you really want to give your guests a fright, add a motion-sensor activated decoration to the front porch to give them a scare!
Wholesome Harvest Party
If you have a lot of little kids, or your group just isn’t into all things spooky and scary, lean into the happier side of Halloween. Decorate with lots of fun pumpkins, happy ghosts, and candy-corn themed snacks. For a party, consider painting crafts or fun games! Halloween doesn’t always have to be scary – it can be fun and lighthearted, too.
If you want to go for a more glam, elegant look for your Halloween decor, take the spooky look up a notch with lots of elegant gold, brass, and black accents. Aim for a more vintage aesthetic that will give your home an older, creepier vibe, mixed with witchy touches and creepy details.
Perfectly Pop Culture
There’s nothing like a fun pop culture Halloween party. There are so many great Halloween movies to choose from, from Hocus Pocus to Harry Potter, and it’s easy to throw a party that your guests will remember. Build the experience with great decorations that bring the set of your film to life, and invite all of your guests to dress as characters from the movie. You can even have a contest for the best costume and offer fun prizes to the winners!
