Instead of throwing out the decorations you have collected over the years, let’s simply re-purpose! By adding a few additional items or spray painting some existing ones, you can re-create an entirely new look.
Here is an idea for a traditional black-and-orange Halloween party, but with newly added bling to freshen up the look and make it stand out from past parties.
(1) Black Skull Candle, $16.95, Z Gallery (2) LED Light String with Sound Box, $24.99, Target (3) Candelabra, $49.99, Target (4) Jeweled Skull Tray, $12.95, Z Gallery (5) Urchin vase-sculpture, $39.95, cb2 (6) Glass Icon Skull Candle, $24.95, Z Gallery
If this is your first year hosting a Halloween party, don’t run out and buy a Target aisle – not everything needs to be branded “Halloween”. As long as you stick in a color palette or have a common theme (i.e. skulls, skeletons), you can pull of everyday items as Halloween-specific decorations.
This idea takes a whole new, fun approach to Halloween – who said it has to be scary? Here, I combined the complimentary colors of orange and pink. I also added some neutrals to ease the eye.
