It’s time to make the most of this spooky month and, seeing as we’re halfway through October, what better time to look for some spine-tingling inspiration to get your home ready for All Hallows Eve.

So sit back, grab your broomstick and release your inner Addams Family ready for our top home accessory picks – if you dare!

Pumpkins. We like to think of them as the Christmas Tree of Halloween – who’s with us? If you are looking for a pumpkin that you can use every year then this silver-effect candle holder is the perfect addition to a spooky home.

Looking for a gothic alternative to the humble wine glass when hosting your fabulous Halloween party this year? Surprise your guests with these eccentric glass skulls, great for holding whatever delicious cocktail you are planning. If you find them too pretty to use as drinkware then they make fantastic table pieces.


Autumnal Wreath / £30 / John Lewis

Who said wreaths can only be used at Christmas? We love this seasonal addition that could easily feature in the location of one of our favourite Disney films, ‘Halloween Town’ (no, we haven’t forgotten Hocus Pocus).


Autumn Garland / £12.25(+shipping) / Etsy

How glorious is this autumnal garland? Handmade with alternating ¾ inch mustard, cream, pumpkin, brown and moss balls – these will add a dash of colour to your fireplace or shelves. We are in love!
