6 Subtly Spooky Yet Stylish Halloween Ideas

It's only a couple of days until Halloween and my girls are getting so excited. Ok, me too! How about you? Perhaps you're the person who goes all out, adorning your home with cobwebs and coffins, goblins and goblets or like me, prefer to add a gentle, yet spooky nod to the occasion. No matter your Halloween style, I've rounded up 5 of my favourite simple yet bewitching halloween decorating ideas - from light and bright, to the very dark side. I hope you find something that tickles your fancy on 31st October! 

1. Add one more guest to the (console) table this halloween with a bone chilling display complete with carnivorous cobra lilies, black beauty roses and allium in a skull vase, for a deadly display! 

2. Put a little ssssspace between you and your latest pet  - snake charming optional! 

3. Not into the spooksville side of Halloween? This pretty Scandinavian window display by Anna Kvarnstr√∂m will last all season long, and it's as pretty as a pumpkin! 

4. Ask your portraits to keep a close eye on guests by adding a black mask to the glass on the front of your pictures - for an instant haunted house! 

5. Enjoy a bewitching banquet with this black and white display. Dine on blood red apples dipped in sticky toffee and finished with bony, gnarled sticks. 

6. Go over to the (very) dark side with pumpkins, brass candlesticks and candles as black as the night sky. Ghosts optional. 

Did any of these ideas capture your imagination? I'm totally going to get up early on halloween at my parents' house and put masks on all the portraits (although some of my Mother's paintings are spooky enough already!). Mwah ha ha haaaaaa!

We're busy packing here since we're heading to London today to hang out with my family for the school half term (and of course do a little trick or treating!). Eeeeeee! I can't wait! 
I hope you have a wonderful few days. See you on Monday!
