Halloween, but make it classy. How to decorate for the spooky season.
Halloween, but make it classy. Why not use the fun holiday to give your home a little seasonal spruce?
The festive season is upon us — first Halloween, then bonfire night, followed by Christmas and finally, New Year’s Eve. Prepare for a winter of fun with these gorgeous new autumnal home products from Dobbies.
Rebecca Stanton, stylist at the gardening centre, said, “There’s no need to sacrifice style for festivity at Halloween. We know our customers will be looking for ways to celebrate the 31st of October but many want to do so in a more sophisticated and understated way.
“Our collection of warm orange hues accompanied by pops of black and accents of gold give subtle hints of Halloween without being too garish, creating the perfect, Instagram-able glow for the season.”

Inspired by nature
Wreath, £24.99, Dobbies
While wreaths may traditionally be associated with Christmas, this year Dobbies has created versions inspired by the traditional colours of autumn and Halloween which can last well beyond the 31st October.
Candleholder, £29.99, Dobbies
Pops of autumnal foliage, miniature pumpkin sprays and garlands can be used to bring a hint of Halloween to dinner party tablescapes and vase arrangements in a suitably chic way.
Offset with industrial style
Candlesticks, £6.99 each, Dobbies
Halloween is the prime time to showcase darker coloured accessories while keeping it sophisticated. Solid colours of any kind make a statement, but black accessories really lift a room, and look unique too.
Vase, £39.99, Dobbies
Bold black items from candle holders to vases can give a gothic feel – very Halloween-y – but by contrasting with glitzy golds the look can be balanced and give a glamorous luxe look.
Novelty pieces to add character
Lantern, £39.99, Dobbies
And as the nights draw in, Dobbies’ collection of iron gold and brass lanterns can be used to create an inviting glow inside or out – perfect for attracting trick or treaters into the evening.
Lantern, £29.99, Dobbies
Place this gorgeous brass lantern in a corner or next to the fireplace to boost that cosy glow.
