Elegant Halloween Decorating Ideas – Friday Favorites

I’ve been thinking about Halloween decor since it is October already (where did the time go??)…

…and I’ve been thinking about how to decorate your Halloween house in an elegant way.

So I started searching for inspiration.

You see, I am not so much into the creepy skeleton/zombies/bloody/insects.

There are other ways to decorate for Halloween other than, well IMO, the gross things that give me the creepy crawlies. 

Let’s start with below, see, elegant candles, dark moody lighting, interesting florals…  You’ll notice a lot of the different pictures have similar themes.

An easy project, glue some black lace to simple glass votives.

This staircase below – elegant, but creepy but then kind of cute at the same time.  You don’t have to use the creepy noise-making zombies/ghosts/witches sold at the store to have a house decorated for Halloween.

Unless, of course, that’s your thing.  But it’s not my thing.  These decorating ideas could also work for younger children since they are not quite so scary (although stay around them if you light candles!)
