My Halloween decor is wrapped into my general Fall items. Linens, table runners and side-table pieces are in plaids with browns, burgundies, and deep oranges.. I'll swap to autumn pillar candles, add a cornucopia that incorporates miniature pumpkins, and swap out seasonal artwork and candy dishes. On the buffet, I'll have a display with glass and glazed pumpkins that can stay out thru Thanksgiving. I have a light-up pumpkin for the porch, and I use a handled basket lined with an orange Halloween napkin to hold treats for the trick or treaters. The only other outdoor decor is a Halloween garden flag (used to do a full-sized pumpkin flag, when I had the house, but home owners' association rules ...) and an autumn wreath for the front door, to which I'll spruce up with Halloween ribbon and ornamentation. Aside from the wreath, everything fits into a single bin for off-season storage.

What type of custome do you wear? Does it do to be updated? Last year we were going to do a circus theme but then I ended up having a surgery sceduled on Nov 1st. DD dressed as a squirrel to hand out candy.

I used to do Halloween parties and 'themes' in each room... HPotter (mandrake plant, fortune telling class, pixie, school color scarves, black family tree (just printed it out on the web),... all easy stuff. In the bathroom we had a murder scene, a morgue in my bedroom , haunted garden in the LR, etc.... so much fun!

We lots of orange and purple lights outside and orange lights inside. Blow mold pumpkins for outside, metal pumpkins that you can put candles or fairy lights in for inside. We have light up spider and a few blow ups for outside too.

Sadly, we haven't had Trick or Treaters since many of the downtown areas have started having "prowls". Businesses are open and hand out candy to the kids. Also, a lot of churches have Trunk or Treat.

I usually just decorate with pumpkins and fall flowers.
