An elegant haunting

I don't decorate for Halloween too much but I thought it would be fun to do the dining room buffet.  I was going for a more elegant than scary.  Even though there are bones they blend in with the pretty stuff. 

A closer look to the right side of the buffet we have a women in a mask that I draped some beads around her neck. The rats next to her got a some beads too.

The left side of the buffet is adorned with a harlequin skull in snow globe.  But when you shake this one up the snow if black.  A black and white pumpkin on a candlestick with more beads.  I also added my tall black owl.

The middle I used my silver candlestick holders with bone candles.  I placed a skull on top of the book stack and of course added some more beads.

I love my new find from HomeGoods.  The minute I saw it I snatched it right up. It was still on the cart when I saw it.  They didn't have time to put it on the shelf.

  1. I love the black and white theme, so elegant! Your skull globe is awesome. What a cool find!

  2. This is so beautiful and exactly the kind of decor we love over at the Hauntingly Beautiful Decor link party. We try to showcase elegant and classy home tours! I would love if you would link up this post! I just shared my Halloween home which incorporates a similar theme, mixing in a few spooky elements with every day decor. Excellent post!

  3. This is absolutely fantastic! It is elegantly horrifying.
