6 ways to style a halloween party

4 min read

Here at Interflora, we believe there’s no reason you can’t take your Halloween party from spooky to stylish with décor you’ll actually want to use again. Check out our favourite ways to take your Halloween decorations up a notch this year...

Pumpkin Vases

Pumpkin carving is synonymous with Halloween and it’s a decoration everyone has come to expect when they arrive at a Halloween party.

Why not go the extra mile with your carved pumpkin this year and use it as a vase!

A pumpkin vase is easy to create and makes a gorgeous centrepiece that is sure to attract compliments from your guests.

Carve out a hole in the top and voila, you have yourself a vase! In terms of flowers, we love using natives and wildflowers with diverse textures and fiery colours.

Neutral Colours with Dark Touches

Your entire house doesn’t need to be decorated in orange to create a memorable Halloween event.

Make your party unforgettable by styling the space in neutral tones with metallic accents and dashes of colour here and there.

Use contrast tones such as black and white to create a chic yet mysterious feel. A largely colourless, understated theme really makes colours pop.

Picture your pumpkin vase centrepiece atop a black or white table runner, a simple yet impressive design.

Day of the Dead Décor

A perfect way to add a burst of colour into the space while keeping to the Halloween theme is through Day of the Dead décor.

Whether it’s a sugar skull cushion, ceramic skull, a framed artwork, skull bookends or a light box, the Day of the Dead theme is easy to incorporate into your party location.

Sugar skulls are super chic, on trend and inject just the right amount of colour into a neutral space.

And you never know, they might just creep their way into your everyday style!

Spooky Succulents

Succulents themselves aren’t that frightening, but together with a skull vase they will tie into the Halloween theme while maintaining a sophisticated style.

What’s more, both the vase and the plant will outlive your party. Succulents are durable, easy to maintain and make the perfect house pet!

Staggered Candles

Lighting is important in setting the ambience of a Halloween party.

Never-mind adjusting the light dimmer; go for something that has a dual purpose of adding to the atmosphere and to your design style at the same time!

There’s a lot of opportunity to be creative with your candle choices.

Whether you opt for taper candles in antique style candlestick holders, a mixed cluster of different sizes and shapes or a group of staggered candles, the options are endless!

White or cream coloured candles will keep to the theme while adding a touch of class.

Add an extra hint of style and have your candles nestled between white or cream flowers and green foliage.

Themed Bar Cart

A bar cart is a trendy and tasteful way to add a big decoration piece into an area while keeping to an uncluttered design style.

We love things with a dual-purpose, so bar carts are a winner! They create another area for people to mingle and serve themselves drinks at the party while subsequently adding another decoration piece to the space.

There’s the option to style it with subtle Halloween décor such as metallic pumpkins or an antique vase with long stem roses or candles.

The drinks themselves can even be part of the theme. Think about Bloody Mary or Grave Digger cocktail jugs, or else opt for dark and mysterious looking beverages!
