Throwing together a last-minute Halloween celebration? No need to get spooked about your lack of preparation. Instead, focus on all the fun that will ensue once you've got a solid plan. There are a ton of resources available to you in order to bring some last minute spooky flair to your home. Get ready with these four quick fixes to spread some simple, festive Halloween cheer.
- Freaky florals. While orange and black are the traditional Halloween hues, go outside the box and try something new. A few bright red bromeliads against a black and white backdrop bring an edgy vibe to a Halloween shindig. Or take a tip from Kyle Schuneneman on how to make black carnations.
- Paint a pumpkin. Carving can be a laborious and messy process. If you want to primp up your pumpkin, look at these pumpkin decor designs for inspiration. If you don't have time to mess around with paint, simply pick up some pumpkins at your local grocer and set up a sweet autumnal scene.
- Sweet centerpieces. In preparation for all those cute trick-or-treaters, you'll already be at the store for treats. Grab some extra bags of candy corn and set up big bowls for some delicious and festive flair.
- Get ghostly. We know you've got extra white sheets laying around. Take a tip from Country Living's eerie photo and drape sheets all over your everyday furniture to make them look like creatures of the night.
