Since Halloween falls on a Thursday this year, many people will be hosting Halloween parties this weekend. Are you ready? If not, I’ve got a few ideas for anyone looking to put together a party of their own, create a last minute costume or decorate your home in time to greet neighborhood trick-or-treators.
Let’s start off with a little party decor inspiration via Williams-Sonoma! I love the chic, gothic-vibe of their Halloween decor this year. It immediately caught my eye when they sent out their most recent e-newsletter.

Expert Tip:Subscribe to e-newsletters from your favorite party supply stores. They may seem like junk-mail to most, but you’d be surprised how many fantastic party ideas, recipes, and amazing deals I’ve gotten all because I subscribe to (and actually open!) the e-newsletters from my favorite retailers.
If you’re not into this bright color palette, try a simple black and white theme.

And don’t forget, if you don’t have a lot of time to put up a bunch of decorations for Halloween, you can accomplish a lot with just lighting!
Try placing a few large lights in your front-yard to project green, orange or even a black and white strobe effect onto your home. It will give it an instant spooky feel without going to a lot trouble!
