My “Haute” Halloween Decor

I’m not sure about you, but around here, we take holiday decorating pretty seriously.

But I’m here to tell you that doesn’t mean that you have to put away what you already have out in your home. And it sure as heck doesn’t mean that it has to clash with your beautiful home.

To see how I layered in some Halloween spook, while keeping it glam, keep reading!

A Welcoming Entry

The first impression of your home is a lasting one, wether you have guests coming inside for a visit, or simply passersby out for an afternoon stroll. At my house, there is a welcome wagon of four doggos waiting to show you around. If you haven’t seen my full front porch reveal, definitely check it out!

For each holiday or season, I add a little something to my cement friends. This time of year, it’s a witch hat and mask, cause they’re family too!

You can find this welcome mat and topiary here and here.

I already had these cream velvet pumpkin wreaths up for fall, so I popped on a few black feather crows for a little pop of spook! Doesn’t get much easier than that. It’s not a porch that screams “HALLOWEEN” but I didn’t want it to. I think the fun & subtle touches are the best.

Layered Gilded Glam

I received these gorgeous “B-E-W-A-R-E” pumpkins and instantly knew that they would be perfect on the living room mantel. I had these gold pumpkins from last year, and they became instant buddies.

They looked a little lonely and out of proportion on the mantel since the mirror is so huge, so I started out by adding a layer if this fantastic spider web fabric over the mirror.

I added the empty frames to help give a bit more visual interest to the space, as well as a little lonely crow.

To me, this is the perfect amount of glam for my “haute” home.

Unexpected Halloween Touches

This bird cage moves around the house, depending on the time of year, and my mood. Yesterday, it was screaming “make me haunted and fill me with birds!”

So I did the next best thing, and added some mummy cloth and covered it in birds.

To make it haute & glam, I added some more pumpkins and tall brass candle sticks.

Scary Good Bar

The last spot to get a little haute halloween decor cheer was the bar cart.

First and foremost, I made sure it was well stocked with booze. Then I added some more of the mummy material (not sure what it really is, but that’t what I call it)

I took a dead branch from the lawn, and nestled it in some baby boo pumpkins with some more crows for good measure. Simple, a tiny bit spooky and definitely still fitting with my homes aesthetic.

I hope the one or all of these ideas will inspire you to add some fun touches to your own home!
