Are you looking for chic instead of scary this Halloween? Wanting to go a bit more glam and less ghoulish? We couldn’t agree more! Chic Halloween decorations are an easy way to elevate your space and make it look pulled together at the same time. This type of look is perfect for your next party or gathering.
So where do you begin? Start by assessing pieces you already own. Keep what works and leave the rest packed away for another year. If you’re considering making a permanent switch, consider donating previously loved items to make way for new pieces. Some bits and baubles can be given a new glam life with a little DIY attention (hello metallic spray paint!)
Next, decide on a color palette. Do you want to mix metallics or stick with just one? Are you going with a full black and white only theme or mixing in a few colors? The choices are yours. Pro-tip: we recommend choosing colors that go with your home décor to avoid clashing.
If you’re on the hunt for new chic pieces to add to the mix, look no further. We compiled the ultimate list of must-have items to make your Halloween the chicest event of the year. From doormats to wine glasses, to candles and artwork we’ve got it all covered right here. Save yourself the hassle of aimlessly looking through your local retailers or spending hours online. We did the heavy lifting so you don’t have to.

How can I decorate my house to look classy for Halloween?
Start by avoiding bright colors, traditional jack-o-lanterns, and cheesy pumpkins. Choose a glamorous metallic or muted color palette and stick with it. Only purchase items that fit within the color plan. Look for fancy items with a touch of spookiness. For example, mercury glass pumpkins, stemless wine glasses with festive designs, candelabras with flameless candles etc. Avoid anything that strays too spooky or too cutesy.
Can I mix Halloween and Fall decorations?
Absolutely! Fall pumpkins and leaves are great additions to your Halloween decor. We love more bang for our buck and using pieces for multiple holidays.
When should I put up my Halloween decorations?
This is a personal choice but a good rule of thumb is October 1 or after. If you love Halloween start in mid-September. Enjoy those pieces as long as you like. Sometimes we decorate inside in September and then outside in October. Do what works for you and have fun!
