Planning a spooky soirée this Halloween? Whether you’re hosting a sit-down dinner or an open house for trick-or-treaters, be inspired by these Halloween decorating ideas.
Impress trick-or-treaters and party guests alike by transforming your front door with an autumn wreath. Hauntingly beautiful, this stunning design showcases the best the season has to offer and includes bronze chrysanthemum blooms, golden orchids and spiky succulents. Blood red rose hips and burgundy oak leaves are all that’s needed to hint towards the arrival of All Hallows’ Eve on 31st October.
If you’re looking for inspiration for outdoor Halloween decorations, look no further. This fabulous hideaway is the perfect venue for a witch’s coven. Rustic crates and haystacks are piled high whilst a bewitching floral garland spills out of the summer house, just like the contents of an over brewed cauldron. However you’re decorating your outdoor space this Halloween, conjure up a little hocus pocus by grouping together flickering lanterns, pumpkins and squashes – the uglier the better!
Pumpkins and gourds make great containers for floral arrangements. For a pumpkin display with a difference, hollow yours out, line it with cellophane and place a brick of soaked floral foam into the bottom. All that’s left to do then is to get flower arranging! Long-lasting flowers such as chrysanthemums, berries and seasonal foliage are great choices for outdoor displays. If you’re feeling particularly creative, why not spray your blooms with glow in the dark paint? A great way to trick and treat Halloween party goers!
Bring some grown up glamour to your party by giving your chandelier a ghoulish makeover. Achieve the look by draping flowers and plant material over the arms of your light fitting (keeping them well away from hot bulbs). Here we’ve used fiery red gloriosa for their intense colour and lots and lots of tillandsia moss for its web like appearance. Accessorise with a scattering of half-hidden (faux!) creepy crawlies and your dinner guests are sure to be spellbound.
Indoors or outdoors, a spook-tacular display of fresh flowers is always a real treat. Inspired by the lurid colours of Halloween, this crate of blooms includes lime green bloom chrysanthemums, orange celosia, orange roses and purple succulents. The inclusion of miniature pumpkins and glittered fern adds a touch of black magic.
