If you’re someone who loves Halloween festivities and would like to decorate your home for Halloween hosting but are put off by all the tacky decor items out there, Etsy trend expert, TV host, and lifestyle specialist Dayna Isom Johnson has you covered.
It’s entirely possible to decorate your home for Halloween in a fun, stylish and completely personal way, says Johnson.
Think outside the box
To avoid tacky Halloween decor, think outside the box, says Johnson. Ways to do this include using more elevated themes. Think rich textures, like velvet and anything celestial, she says.
Or opt for modern, pastel themes that are not typical of Halloween but look fun and beautiful, she says.
Apothecary is big this Halloween
Halloween decor that is trending at the moment includes anything apothecary, including vintage medicine bottles and potion labels, says Johnson. Also popular are vintage-inspired calligraphy and witch themes, and anatomy-inspired decor items, like hearts, spines and other body parts, says Johnson.
Make Halloween your own
Two things Johnson says she always looks forward to at Halloween include dressing up her pup Mojo and hosting a movie night with lots of spooky snacks and mood lighting.
“This year, I’m thinking of dressing up in a costume inspired by the new movie Woman King,” says Johnson.
Johnson’s Halloween decor picks for 2022
If she had to pick her favourite Halloween decor items this year, Johnson says she’d go for Halloween-inspired candy dishes and tableware and Halloween-inspired barware, such as swizzle sticks and fun cocktail glasses.
“Also, candles! Bring on the mood lighting,” she says.
Mindful decor choices
If you love decorating, but don’t like the waste that can happen with seasonal decor, choose items you can use again, like luxe velvet pumpkins, jewel-toned pieces or black tableware, at Thanksgiving and Christmas, says Johnson.
Johnson suggests that nature-inspired items, like pampas grass and tree branches, can be re-styled for other holiday celebrations. Use them to decorate your fireplace mantle or as centrepieces on your dining table.
And align with one of the hottest holiday trends emerging — magical forest.
“Consider items that can be used from year to year and stretched beyond just the one holiday. If decorating with gourds and pumpkins, select those that are edible and can be cooked after spooky season (don’t forget roasting the seeds!),” she says.
