1. Witches Cauldron £2.49
I always keep sweet treats out on the coffee table, so switching our my regular jar for a witches cauldron is an inexpensive, fun way to serve them. If you’re watching some scary movies over Halloween it also makes a really cute popcorn bucket.
Can you believe I have never carved a pumpkin? As much as I want to, I know it will end up looking rubbish and in the bin so, with that in mind, this perfectly carved terracotta pumpkin will not only always look freakishly handsome, but it will last through the season and for years to come. It can hold a tea light too so it will give off that spooky glow you’re looking for.
Remember I said this was going to be understated decor? One of the easiest ways to throw in a little seasonal decor is in the kitchen with some cute themed tea towels. Mine are always on display over the oven handle so this is a fun and subtle way to take the festivities into the kitchen.
I have a confession to make…I am addicted to candy corn! I tried it in America for the first time a few years back and now I ask anyone and everyone who goes to bring me some back. This candle is a little sickly sweet but it smells good enough to eat and makes a change from pumpkin spice. As it’s only burned over the Halloween season, you should get a couple of years out of one candle too with proper storage.
This freaky little holder is perfect for holding your Halloween Yankee in and it has the cutest little spider dangling off the side. It’s a touch gothic but nothing too over the top and looks great on the window sill surrounded by little tea lights. Note, you can never have too many candles for Halloween.
I am a sucker for things like this! Bring a little scream to breakfast with some skull-y side up eggs on toast for breakfast. I love novelties like this you can bring out year after year. It’s eggs-ellent. Yes. I went there.
I think I have a thing for tea towels. But just look at how cute it is! It would go great with any of the tea towels from the 3 pack and just incase hitchhiking ghosts didn’t realise what time of year it was in your kitchen, they’re sure to get the message now!
I love the seasonal offerings from Hotel Chocolat! These milk chocolate ghouls and ghosties are perfect for trick or treating yourself with on the couch, with the lights off, candles burning, and a scary movie or two.
