Style Spotlight: Goth Halloween


Go to spooktacular extremes this holiday! A palette of pure black sets the mood for the season of shivers, tingles, and dark romance.

When it comes to Halloween decor, there’s nothing wrong with your standard-issue black and orange. Except that it’s a little…basic. This is a holiday that demands drama, so why not pile on the black for a ghoulish goth effect. Don’t be afraid—we promise it’ll be chic.

Heritage Lace® Halloween Gala Door Swag

This versatile piece works as a valance, door swag, or lampshade koozie. It doesn’t scream Halloween, but if you look at it for a few seconds, the filigree bats and skulls make themselves noticed. Boo!

A feathered owl with glittering green eyes adds a great Halloween effect to a centerpiece or perched on a bookshelf. Hoo knew?

Okay, so the purple candy skull isn’t going to scare anyone, but fun is also a big part of Halloween.

Garland Skulls Rug in Black

For those who like their scary on the down low, here’s a subtle skull-and-crossbones-pattern rug that comes in 5’ x 7’ and 8’ x 10’ sizes.

Black lace dresses up everything, turning an otherwise ordinary human skull into something truly special.

Sienna 3-Light Flickering Candelabra in Black

Black candles are just plain spooky—all the more so when flickering eerily, as if stirred by a spectral presence. Less spooky is the fact that these “candles” are flameless, making them a safe alternative to the real thing.

Sugar Skulls Table Topper from Heritage Lace®

Dress up your table with a skull tablecloth. This one’s got texture and shimmer, which makes it feel special.

Heritage Lace® Spider Web 30-Inch Round Table Topper in Black

Qualia Artisan Goblets in Black (Set of 4)

Even tap water goes down like a magic potion when sipped from a hefty chalice. Now imagine a cabernet.

Fiesta® Skull and Vine Luncheon Plate in Black

Sure, it’s decorated with skulls, but this sturdy plate is more pretty than frightening. Add it to a set of black or white (or….orange) dishes for just a pop of holiday.

Staub® 3.5-Quart Pumpkin Cocotte in Burnt Orange

The black version of this enameled cast-iron pot is about as chic as cucurbits get, but in burnt orange, it stuns and exudes the festive spirit. It goes from stovetop to oven to table for a dramatic presentation of an autumnal stew.

Lace Morticia Women’s Halloween Costume

It wouldn’t be fair if your table got to wear something more fun than you did on Halloween!
