Good housekeeping's October issue includes a beautiful photographic spread featuring black & white Halloween decorations. I really love this color combination for Halloween and have been seeing it pop up more than ever this year. I think I'm going to have to do a black and white series of Halloween cards before the month is through.
I just love this front porch, particularly because they use a lot of natural elements in their decorating; twigs from the yard above the door, a twig wreath painted black and lots and lots of pumpkins. I really love the pumpkin lantern configurations that are displayed on each side of the door, eerie yet elegant.
A troupe of pumpkin people make a spectacular welcoming committee for any Halloween feast and perfectly captures the holiday spirit.
I love both of the displays shown pictured on this page. The bevy of bats fluttering from the black spray-painted branches are a perfect addition to this Halloween decor. The mantel piece below is the perfect mix of sinister and sweet; ghostly white painted pumpkins spelling out a frightful message, black candlesticks and black painted ivy.
