For those of us who love to decorate for the holidays but hate the tacky factor, getting in the Halloween spirit can be challenging. Jack-o-lanterns can get messy and produce mixed results (#PumpkinCarvingFail) and many of us don’t have the desire (or the storage space) to go full haunted house come October 31. But fear not! We’ve sourced some Halloween decor options that set the spooky vibe without looking like Party City exploded in your living room.
Themed Throw Blankets
A bucket of fun-size candy bars and a scary movie marathon may just be the perfect Halloween combination. Go for the trifecta and add a bold blanket to curl up in while you get the willies. A throw is a great way to incorporate a festive pattern or pop of color without going overboard.
This velvety skull printed throw is anything but bone chilling and perfect for hiding under for all those ‘don’t go in there!’ movie moments.
Pull out this reversible celestial blanket all year round or just when you want to tap into your inner Sanderson Sister.

Kitschy Halloween mugs are a dime a dozen. If you don’t want your dishware to scream Halloween (literally), these speckled orange ceramic mugs are a subtle, chic, and in-season option to pull out when it’s time to serve up some witch’s brew.
