Chic and creepy: embracing Halloween as a grown-up
In the run-up to the spookiest time of the year, it can be easy to get caught up in the fun of garish green and fluorescent orange decorations, spooky skeletons and an abundance of creepy cobwebs. It is all ghoulishly good fun; however, if you are planning a grown-up get together, here are a few ways in which you can indulge in all the excitement of Halloween whilst creating a sophisticated and stylish ambience that will be thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Embrace rich autumnal hues
Bringing a touch of the outside into your autumnal interior décor is guaranteed to result in an ultra-chic, comforting and welcoming environment. Arrange bouquets featuring plenty of rich autumnal colours throughout your home, with splashes of rich orange and deep red hues looking particularly elegant when set against metallic vases and softly flickering candles. Make use of snaking vines and a scattering of leaves across your coffee table, and experiment with spray painting some twigs in a rich metallic shade to create unique place settings.
Addams Family chic
Morticia and Gomez Addams are effortless, eerie elegance personified. If you fancy channelling your inner Addams, think lots of rich, moody hues with shiny silver accents for a touch of refined sophistication when arranging your Halloween table. Arrange small clusters of pumpkins in varying sizes and colours and set the mood with an abundance of pillar candles. Finish your gothic chic look with splashes of lace, perhaps as place settings or coasters, to up the glamour factor and create an ambience your guests won’t forget in a hurry.
A subtle sprinkling of spooky creatures
When it comes to successful Halloween décor, the devil really is in the detail. Placing ravens, skulls, bats and black cats amongst other decorations and arrangements can be a very effective way of upping the spook factor without looking too over the top. These look especially creepy when placed inside glass bell jars with a few cobwebs and dusty leaves, helping to create an old haunted mansion vibe that works so well as a backdrop for the ultimate Halloween get-together.
Using a black and white striped table cloth or table runner as your starting point, there are myriad ways to create an elegant ambience that also embraces the very best bits of the year’s spookiest night. Think elegant candelabras, sparkling silver cutlery and white pumpkins, all stylishly accented with a colour of your choice. Pinks and purples work well against black and white settings, with sprigs of fragrant lavender or deep pink napkins always looking effortlessly sophisticated.
