Halloween decorations usually veer into one of three categories—creepy, cutesy, or campy—but this latest trend nails the trifecta

Halloween decorations usually veer into one of three categories—creepy, cutesy, or campy—but this latest trend nails the trifecta. And is just about guaranteed to make your most uptight neighbor's eye start twitching the second you stab one into your yard.

These are Zombie Flamingos

With the rise of monstera leaf-print everything and other tropical decor, these undead birds are a fitting transition to fall, in that I'm-literally-wasting-away-again-in-Margaritaville sense.

This Halloween decoration could be mistaken for modern art, so it may just scare you how easy it is to make. Simply use a toothbrush to splatter red paint on white cylinder vases, flicking the bristles of the brush with your fingertips (while wearing plastic gloves)

A sophisticated soirée naturally involve sophisticated drinks, and there is perhaps no better way to spookily elevate your cocktails than with gilded creepy crawlies. Attach plastic bugs to bamboo skewers with hot glue, then use liquid gilding to cover in gold. You may just want to leave them on your bar cart all year long. Remember: Always check the label to make sure the liquid gilding is food-safe if you plan to use the skewers in your drinks.

Start your party off the proper way with a sophisticated (and spooky) invitation. Send off one of these 14 eerily chic invites, and you'll have a spirited Halloween bash underway in no time.

        

There’s no better way to celebrate Halloween than with decor that is equal parts elegant and spooky. During October, replace the fall wreath on your front door with a Halloween-focused one that's unique, easy, and reusable, making it the perfect greeting piece for trick-or-treaters and guests alike (no messy spider webs or gory fake blood required!).
