With all Hallow’s Eve approaching, chances are you’re either ready to make moves and elevate your home with chic Halloween decor party ideas, or you’ve been planning holiday-themed solutions for ages to make it a night to remember. No matter where you stand, we bet you’re still on the hunt for stylish ideas to make the most of the evening.
Cue Décor Aid team members who were quick to chime in with some clever ideas that are both budget-friendly and are certain to make your home stand apart while adding conversation-starting elements throughout.
Don’t Limit Your Palette
Skip the obligatory orange and black color combinations typical of the holiday and go for something more modern and less obvious, such as embracing monochrome looks, or something dark and glamorous with jet tonal embellishments and the ilk.
By doing so, you’ll also save yourself from having decorative items to store that are exclusive to the month-long celebration. Consider the pillows featured above, while they do point to the spirit of Halloween, they’ll also work year round depending on your mood thanks to their subtlety.
Add a sense of the old-world with vintage finds, old black and white family portraits, and a terrarium stuffed with elements that evoke the spirit of Halloween for a truly unique assemblage of decorative extra’s.
As sometimes, and since this is a fleeting season, you’ll most likely already have interesting elements you can use to your advantage when looking for statement-making Halloween decor party ideas.
Since the season is brief, take chances and get experimental with your approach to Halloween decor party ideas. We love this affordable bat covered wreath that’s textured and moody enough to last you throughout the fall season.
Again, modern halloween decor ideas needn’t be limited to standard practices. Think outside of the box and reimagine gourds and pumpkins in a slew of your favorite colors with a coat of spray paint for an easy and inexpensive way to bring in unexpected color.
Though Bert Stern’s portrait of Marilyn Monroe featured above boasts a somewhat ghostly aura, take a cue from it and swap out framed pieces for inexpensive black and white prints, or go high-drama and cross out portraits with lipstick and photographer’s markers like Marilyn did to prints she wasn’t pleased with from the sitting.
Here’s one of the few times you’ll catch us serving DIY ideas as they make for festive and budget-friendly alternatives to big-box retail finds. Use paint-friendly washi tape and black cardstock to create spooky silhouette wall hung cutouts of cats, bats, pumpkins, and figures or create a grand paper garland dotted with metallic accents of mylar.
You can even make it as simple as spelling out the letters B O O or take a cue from the image featured above and spray paint inexpensive candlesticks matte black to display pumpkins or just about anything year-round.
More Than Sweets
Because sometimes store bought candy just won’t do, think of easy ways to add a little drama to their treats like these wet-look candied apples that while standard, are presented in a modern way on a black slate board and finished with black satin ribbon.
Bring In Moody Botanicals
When it comes to modern Halloween decor party ideas, bring in the organic with moody blooms and foliage to disperse among tablescapes, your spray painted pumpkins and gourds, and monochrome décor. Think dark glamorous hues, feathered inserts, and black ribbons to tie everything together.
