This year, celebrate halloween by incorporating small but impactful non-traditional pieces. You don't have to sacrifice the allure of your home with traditional or basic decorations. Work in a few pieces throughout that don't hit you over the head, but still get the point across in a sophisticated way.
Instead, go for ornate skulls like the one above, or go for pumpkins so that you don't have to put it away until after Thanksgiving
Avoid Traditional Orange and Black:
Instead, go for black and gold or other metallic or non-traditional colors
Ditch the Cauldron:
Instead, go for a really cool ice bucket or smoked glass items
