Creating A Halloween Theme

Updated on October 16, 2010
Creating a Halloween theme can be a simple task, yet it is open to many possibilities. All that is required is a central idea and a little brainstorming (and a budget for supplies). A theme can be as simple as a graveyard or a gathering of witches. Once the theme has been established, you can then get to work on the floor plans for your masterpiece. If you are designing a spooky scene for your front lawn or a haunted house, choose a layout that displays your decorations in a way that makes the scene come to life. For example, if you are creating a witch scene, gather your witches around a cauldron (using orange or green lights on the inside adds to the effect), with a spell book laid open on a nearby table, and a black cat lying near the witches' brooms. A decorated display such as this will certainly draw attention to your house on Halloween and make it the most popular house on the block. If you are using an inside theme, whether it be for a party or just to get in the Halloween spirit, choose one that complements your furniture and the room you are decorating. Porcelan jack-o-lanterns make very nice decorations for shelves and tabletops. Orange and red tablecloths,vases, and candles can all be used to create a simplistic autumn scene. By using a theme, you can turn any room or scene into a Halloween masterpiece. Below are a few pictures of my lawn during Halloween, which my family and I decorated as a graveyard.

      Bbenson19: Thank you. Halloween is one of my family's favorite holidays, so we're always trying to show our spirit for it. Another similar holiday to look into would be the Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos, which begins on Halloween and ends on All Souls Day.

      That is a superb article on Halloween. Do You know that Halloween has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints' Day. I've learned alot on what you've posted.
