Halloween Party 101: Home Decor Must-Haves

Forget the candy. Right now, oodles of Halloween decorations and costumes are in stores everywhere, reminding us that it’s time to do some serious Halloween party planning. Whether we’re hosting a mega bash or having a small “ghouls” night in (ha, I crack myself up), the right kind of Halloween home décor and accessories can create a bootiful party mood (Ok, I’ll stop.  Maybe). 

Seriously, planning for an October 31st fete should be just as fun as the night itself.

Instead of over-the-top decorations that put a dent in our wallets or end up being more hokey than Halloween-y, we love creating a cute, semi-haunting, Halloween atmosphere. No fake hands popping from a pretzel bowl, no bazillion dollar red-eyed butler statue at the front door.
