Halloween is just around the corner. We know that it will be a lot different because of the horror brought about by COVID-19 but a lot of us are still excited on how creative we can be in celebrating Halloween this year.
With only a few days left, adding a little spooky feel to your condo won’t hurt. But before you even start planning your socially distanced Halloween celebration, think of how you can easily incorporate Halloween flawlessly to your own place, this time of spice and horror.
Here are some ways to achieve that classy spooky feel in your condo.
Ready the candles
Candles are automatically on our list of Halloween essentials. When we talk about decorating, using candles is the simplest way to get that spooky yet cozy vibe in your condominium unit.
They can add mystic feeling and at the same time set the mood by giving that wonderful aroma in your room. Candles come in different shapes, sizes, and colours. Try looking for decorative pieces like mini pumpkins with shades of black, white and gold, gravestones, cauldrons, silver skulls, or even floating candlesticks.
Aside from candles, you can also make use of candle holders. There are various designs to choose from. All you have to do is to be creative in mixing and matching these elements.
Pick bold curtains
When we talk about going bold with color, we usually think of a color-blocked piece of furniture, a large rug or oversized pieces of art.
Window treatments which include curtains and drapes, can have a lot of different functions in a room. They can certainly add to the drama of a space and provide a vibrant (or spooky) backdrop for the rest of the room.
This Halloween, bold curtains are the way to go! Now is the time to put up your red or black curtain for that sophisticated evil villain vibe in your unit.
Be creative with kitchenware
Spice up the spooky feast by transforming your kitchen into a “spooky,” Halloween-themed space!
Since this is a once in a year celebration, why not go all out and match your kitchenware and tableware for that perfectly curated Halloween celebration at home. Kitchenware is one of the easiest to incorporate Halloween into. You can just grab some old pieces from your kitchen like ornamental plates, bottles, or even chopping boards that you rarely use, bring out those creative juices to transform these pieces into unique Halloween décor.
From a bloody chopping board and skeleton beer glass to table cloth and dish towels, there are many things you can use to accentuate your intimate Halloween celebration at home. There are also Halloween kitchenware available in malls that you can easily mix and match and even purchase online.
Why not go for a skull bowl and bone spoon, zombie head cookie jar, a ceramic mug in the shape of Jack Skellington’s face, spider web bowl, skeleton hand salad server, and pumpkin beverage cooler among others. There are a lot of things you can buy or do to make the celebration memorable despite the challenges brought about by the pandemic.
Get into the Halloween mood with scary movies
Whether you’re in the mood for scary horror movies or looking for more family-friendly fare, there are a lot of classic Halloween movies that could help you get into the mood.
Meanwhile, if you want a modern take on Halloween movies, you can also check out some of the best horror movies on Netflix that will make you want to keep the lights on while you watch them.
Don’t forget to adjust the audio level to your heart’s content for more thrill and suspense!
Even when decorating or preparing for the holidays, it is important to keep in mind that your condo space is where you should feel comfortable, happy, and always at your best. Even though we will be celebrating Halloween differently this year, a quarantine Halloween for that matter, don’t let it stop you from being fun and creative and keeping the Halloween vibe in your condo unit.
