It’s easy to overthink things. It’s also easy to go overboard on really dark and overtaking things – but sometimes less is more. Skip the giant ugly plastic halloween tablecloths and layer some neutral and black patterned runners. Find some cute Halloween themed plates – they don’t have to be functional, we’re going to layer them on top of the functional plate…but of course bonus if they are! Cute napkins will work too as long as they won’t blow away!
Keep the rest of the decor reusable and cluster inexpensive pumpkins and mini skeletons along the center. Scatter extra table decor on any side tables, coffee tables, empty ledges, or on shelving. We put a stack of snacks
because kids NEVER stop eating in a plastic cauldron – you might find this at a 99 cent store too!
You might recognize these tables from the Boho Brunch a few months ago…choosing reusable items is a MUST in party planning. We also these the palm leaf plates – BIG FAN of these! They are compostable and have a great natural look, and are very sturdy!

If you’re like most people…storage is a challenge! Storing large outdoor halloween decor might not be an option. Try giant spider webs and giant spiders! The legs fold up so the storage required is only the size of the body but when extended the legs can be 5′-7′ feet across (depending on which ones you order) so these pack a lot of punch not only for the price, but for the storage space required.

These little skeletons can add a pop of Halloween to anything. Toss him into a beverage cooler. Or on the bathroom countertop. Arrange up a staircase.

Adding some Halloween birthday party balloons is another cost effective way to fill a large space or create a selfie wall. You can buy helium tanks from party city, and balloon air pumps are really inexpensive (balloon garlands and balloon arches don’t use helium!) and really speed up the process of DIY’ing them.
