Halloween marks the beginning of the holiday season, a time of the year when we want our homes to look and feel festive for neighbors and guests coming to visit. In your new home decorating for Halloween can seem like a scary task. You want the decorations to reflect your style without interfering too much with the everyday décor you already have in place. Never fear, we’ve got some great tips on how to bring tasteful and stylish Halloween décor to your new Brookfield Residential SoCal home.
First, start at your front porch. Here is where you’ll set the tone for the type of Halloween experience you want to present. Decorating your front porch lets your new neighbors see that your house is inviting and will be a welcoming haunt on Halloween night. You can keep it simple by putting a seasonal wreath on your door—whether it’s all black with bats, distinctly autumnal or covered in spider webs, a wreath is an easy way to spice up your exterior.
Pumpkins are always great for making a seasonal statement. Rather than a single jack-o-lantern, think about creating a mini-pumpkin patch leading to your entryway. Add fall flowers and different sized gourds to give your entry some texture and depth.
When decorating the interior of your new home, consider keeping the colors monochrome. Black and white or variations of orange and gold create a festive palate that will look chic in a home with more neutral colors. Choose glass and metal décor instead of plastic for more upscale appeal. Small pumpkins and gourds work inside your home too—use them as part of your dining table spread to really enhance the fall feeling.
If all else fails, grab some fake spider webs and decorate inside and out for a surprisingly elegant take on spooky. When you’re done decorating be sure to stock up on candy and get ready for trick-or-treaters. Enjoy Halloween in your Brookfield Residential SoCal neighborhood!
