I love to entertain, and I am always searching for unusual pieces. I found a black cake stand with gemstones and added a simple glittered pumpkin. I made several deco mesh garlands and wreaths that are also easy to create and adorned every window and staircase with them. On my sun porch I covered my furniture with material I bought very inexpensively. I had an old picture frame that I spray painted, hung on the wall and added cardboard cutout bats to the center to create the focal point of that room. Candles and strands of clear lights with splashes of silver in every room completed the look to create our Halloween home. You can easily incorporate another color like orange, purple or neon green, if you want to break up the black a little bit. That is what is so great about decorating — you are in control of your masterpiece, and it can be whatever you want it to be. Happy Halloween!
