8 Ways To Capture the Halloween Spirit

Throwing a spooky soiree or a fun fall feast? Here are some accents to help liven up the party.

1. This perky pooch will delight trick-or-treaters. The Outdoor Life-Size Ghost Dog Candy Bowl from Balsam Hill is suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

2. Serve some boo-tiful bites with Ghost-Shaped Stoneware Serving Platters from Pottery Barn, made from ceramic and finished in a modern matte glaze.

3. Charm your guests with these ghostly greeters. Farmhouse Ghosts from Grandin Road come in sets of three.

4. Give your candles some slithering support with the Snake Candelabra from West Elm.

5. Cast a gleeful glow on your porch or walkway with Pumpkin Lanterns from Crate & Barrel.

6. All Hallow’s Eve gets a little cozier with the seasonal pillows from MacKenzie-Childs. New this year: Which Witch’s Hat Pillow (left) and the Polka Pumpkin Lumbar Pillow (right). (Find them in New Jersey at Americana by the Seashore in Beach Haven, The Depot Home & Gift in Morristown or Neiman Marcus locations.)

7. Deck the front door with The Cordless Prelit Autumn Celebration Trim from Hammacher Schlemmer.

8. Show off some glimmering gourds with Crystal Pumpkin Sculptures in Amber and Green from Scully & Scully.
