Halloween Decor – Add a Little Gothic Elegance

Decking your place out for Halloween can be achieved with a few well chosen accessories.

Halloween decor doesn’t need to be paper bats and cobwebs and plastic spiders put everywhere. You can give your home a Halloween theme by thinking more Gothic. A black vase paired with an orange or gold vase makes an instant Halloween statement. After Halloween you just move them to separate areas. The beauty of gothic elegance is you can leave it out all year.

Glass pumpkins are a favorite of mine. They are the epitome of fall, and you can use them right through autumn into winter. I love the glass pumpkins that Luke Adams makes in his Massachusetts studio. He makes pumpkins in an amazing range of colors in addition to classic orange ones. The one I have is the colorway ‘Harvest’.

Got an old silver candle stick that needs polishing? They make great Halloween decor. No need to polish at all – just add a few black candles and you’re done. 

Candy corn is an overlooked design element. Use it as a vase filler. A few columns of clear glass filled with candy corn is a great way to add some Halloween fun to your home.

Here are some of our favorites:

Luke Adams Glass Pumpkins

Luke Adams Glass Pumpkin in the Harvest color is perfect for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and beyond.

These are all handmade in Luke’s glass studio in Massachusetts. They come in a range of sizes and colors – cobalt blue, plum, even rainbow colors. Timeless and elegant, I leave mine out all year but like to pair it with a tarnished candlestick and black candles for Halloween. Start your own pumpkin patch collection!

Matte Black Ceramic Vase

I love the lines of this matte black vase. Simple enough to be modern, but also work with any decor. These are only 8″ tall, so I would probably use these in pairs.

VivaTerra Orange Recycled Glass Vase

This orange glass vase is a perfect statement vase for Halloween. Pair it with a black vase for Halloween decor, use it alone for a cheerful colorful accent. I love the faceted round shape. This would look beautiful filled with spiky blue sea holly.

Brach’s Original Candy Corn

This is a 5 pound bulk pack of candy corn. This should help fill a few small containers or a good sized larger one. These work great for Halloween decor because they have a wax finish that prevents them from getting sticky for a long time. Plenty of time to make it through the spooky season.
