Great looking black and white plates look so perfect in this Halloween themed display. Don't bother yourself with real china/ceramic, just get paper plates and color then nice for a quick makeover. Super stylish at budget cost!!


Fireplace has always been a focal point in a living room. Dress it up for the occasion, easy craft store bought leaves and pumpkin with a bit of stenciling is all it takes to get this fabulous result!!


This display is all about getting the themed accessories. Look for nice festive tray and jars in the stores, they are loaded with Halloween colors and designs, create an instant gorgeous display. I would even look for some in thrift stores..they have some really quirky stuff too.


Easy way to dress up the hallway table. Get a quick and easy 'bat tree' with a dried shrub, paint it black and hang some paper bats. Decorate any votive with a paper sleeve with bat design. Ready for your tricksters!


Adore this cute little setup! I would even give away some spooky balloons to some little witch who comes knocking :) Very fun display and so easy to pull off.


Love the simple sophistication of the fall leaves wrapped candles. Get some real leaves or if not quite fall colors yet, look in your craft store. Pumpkin spice candles would be perfect for this season!


Love the elegance of this pretty amazing cake! The black lace looks so pretty, no small feat but give it a go. Its Halloween and no problem having some boo boos, its all good practice. Must try!


This cake looks so delicious! Easy to make and so apt for Halloween.Use box your fav boxed chocolate cake recipe and loads of frosting. Impress your family and friends!


This is a perfect way to bring some Halloween fun to your office space too. This idea is almost mess free and looks so fun. I am sure all of us know someone who are scared of a spider army :P


Love this delightful presentation. maybe more apt for thanksgiving, but a keeper non the less. Love the glazed, roasted look. How impressed would the guests be! The recipe is 'Roast pumpkin couscous salad' :-)


What a crazy mix of all things Halloween!! Go all the way and use your imagination to make your table extra spooky for the season. Booo!


From the crazy spooky table to this beautiful elegant table decoration. Love the table runner in love pumpkin spice color and pumpkin votive with hurricane chimney. This would keep your backyard party alive even late into the night.


This idea for displaying pumpkin craft is so unique and interesting. Perfect for country/cottage style decoration. Uses garden rake as a prop and the display is such a fresh take. I love how the petite pumpkin votive are delicately balanced on the prongs. So fab!




Halloween is one of the most awaited fun holiday for kids. Bring out their creativity and decorate their lovely crafts all over your home. It need not be costly or too time consuming. Here are some fabulous ideas to get their little fingers working and create beautiful gifts and decorations in no time! 


Candy corn! These ideas are simple to execute and look awesome. The bright color adds cheer to any corner. Make one with little effort, and decorate your home.


Place simple carved pumpkins on a cake stand to create an impressive display. Would looks fantastic on the porch, door front or even in the hallway.


 Adding a little bit of extra goes a long way when it comes to presentation! These cupcake look all dessed up for Halloween. Neat tip to decorate your treats!


I love the simplicity and technique of this pumpkin treat. Cut out lots of strips and punch a hole at each end. Run a pipe cleaner through both holes and add a leaf too. Push the strips closer and open them to look like a pumpkin. Add some treat/candy/cupcake before you open the strips to form the round shape. Easy?!!


These are typically the large Easter eggs in plastic that split in halves. But if you have a bag of Easter eggs that split across its still a good idea to work on! Place the eyes on the top half and nose and teeth in the lower one. Ta da! A thrifty fun and impressive craft idea!!


A perfectly safe and no cost idea to make treat bags more festive. Carve out designs on potato halves and let you kids have fun stamping! If they really take to it, making a skull/bat bunting to decorate your hallway/door too. How much easier can it get!


Craft using your home supplies is the best kind of craft! Toilet paper rolls wrapped in orange crepe for pumpkin. Make a little time to dress up lollipops as cute little ghosts! You will surely love the delightful squeals of little ones!


These little spooky pumpkin look absolutely wickedly adorable! Use online templates to get some fun party eye masks designs and there you have a funny bunch of pumpkins!


Yet another nice way to design a bat tree. Use clothes pin and glue paper bats to them. Use them all over the house too or simply get a branch to pop them on! Great diy idea.


Those looking to try their hand at carving, here are few fantastic designs! Make a template, get your thumb tack and scotch tape and get started! OR get some really bright neon yellow and paint it too. As a bonus it will look equally pretty in the mornings too :-)



Hope your creativite side has been tickled enough now :-) Try some new ways to display/celebrate the festive season. Happy Halloween everyone!!
