7 Spooky Yet Stylish Halloween Ideas

Out of all of the events on the calendar, Halloween has to be one of my favourites! Ever since I was little we've been trick-or-treating (I thought it was called 'trickle treating' up until the age of about 10!) dressed as ghosts, witches, pumpkins, mice and other suitably spooky kit (in the UK and Sweden the dress code is strictly scary, is it the same in your country?). In case you love Halloween as much as I do, we've rounded up 7 spooky (yet stylish!) recipes, drinks and decor to inspire you to make this Halloween an extra wicked affair!

Group black candles in antique candle-holders to add a minimalist, yet smoking touch to the Halloween table!

Quench your vampire thirst with a mouth watering 'Black Widow Mezcal Cocktail' made from Mezcal, blackberries, lemon juice, rosemary and a touch of honey. 

In this part of the world trick or treating can be a bone-chilling affair thanks to the cold. This hearty pumpkin soup with a kick of earthy fresh tumeric & ginger is a sure fire way to warm the cockles.

Serving the Halloween feast on a linen tablecloth darker than the night sky adds a touch of drama and looks pretty too! 

'Devils on horseback' or 'brain' paté' not for you? How about this cuter than cute layered chocolate and meringue ghost cake?!  Did someone say chocolate? Oooooo!

If you're a little tired of pumpkin faces, how about Halloween star gazing with these DIY constellation pumpkins?

Round off the room with a ghost garland (super simple to make and massively kid friendly too), all instructions here.

Is there anything here that caught your eye?!

I've got my eye on that chocolate cake!

I'm so curious to know - do you celebrate Halloween? If so, which traditions do you have in your home?

I'll be back tomorrow with a FABULOUS Swedish home tour to round off week. See you then!


Thank you so much to Astrid, my wonderful new intern who helped to create this round-up!


  1. These are the cutest Halloween ideas I've seen, and not crazy unattainable. Love it.
