Above Brittany and her talented team at The House that Lars Built has some wonderfully spooky ideas for decorating for Halloween. How more than adding some foraged fall flora and fruits with a skull to Machiavellian feel to your party.
Gather bottles of sizes and top them with tall taper candles and scatter them down the center of your table. The more the better. So very Victorian.

A fun tradition for Halloween just like Christmas decorating gingerbread houses why not decorate sugar skulls with candy and frosting like this party posted by Camille Styles.
Blue and green used to mean that a liquid is a poison. I remember my grandma asking why would they make a drink colored blue when she was little it meant poison. Eden at Sugar and Charm put together a blue Halloween Cocktail Bar on a budget.
