Quick Tip: Decorative Dishware | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

When in doubt, take your dishes out! For the holiday season especially, decorative and/or unique dishware can pull double duty around the house. Display in a front hall, on a counter top or other flat surface, and then when guests arrive, wash them up and use to serve appetizers, desserts and other treats.

Thursday’s Theme: Halloween Decorating Roundup

Thursday, October 18th, 2018

Today we’re rounding up some of our favorite Halloween looks featured here on the blog, which we hope will either offer you fresh inspiration or kick your decorating up a notch.

Halloween Mantel

We love this mantel because it is so versatile – it can work with a variety of tastes and decor preferences. The banner can be DIY‘ed, the pumpkins can be painted or left in their orange prime, and faux cobwebs give the entire space a spooky charm – whether you have a farmhouse, Tudor, contemporary home, or anything in between!

Halloween Tablescape / Vignette

This space caught our eye because of the unique addition to the pumpkin – it’s both handmade and whimsical enough for Halloween.┬áThe table and pumpkins also serve as a reminder that Halloween doesn’t have to mean purple and lime green and orange overload. A simple color palette and subtle decoratives on a table or counter can be both stylish and seasonal.

Trick-Or-Treat

We love the idea of a candy bar for Halloween. Whether you’re throwing a Halloween party, preparing for trick-or-treaters, or just want something sweet within reach, a designated candy bar can be fun and, believe it or not, decorative. Use glass jars and a festive tray to make the colorful candy a little more sophisticated.
