21 Unexpected Halloween Decor Items That Aren’t Orange Or Black

Refresh your Halloween style with something that’s a little unexpected, like an aqua hand blown glass pumpkin or a floral skull head.

Spooky season is officially here, gals and ghouls! It’s time to bid your swimsuits and breezy sundresses adieu and usher in a new era of chunky, cable-knit sweaters and pumpkin-flavored goodies. And, of course, get reacquainted with your collection of Halloween decorations. Or perhaps start a new collection of pink Halloween decor or another unexpected color scheme?

Autumn in and of itself is the best time of year — tied with Christmastime — purely because of the home decor. Homes get transformed into pumpkin patches and haunted houses. The coffee cup you drink out of every day gets replaced with a mug with skeleton hands for handles. It’s literally the best, and that’s not even including the fall-scented candles and fuzzy blankets that will overrun our living rooms for the next three months.

All that aside, you may feel underwhelmed or exhausted by the endless array of kitschy orange and black tchotchkes in stores. There’s nothing wrong with orange pumpkins and black cats, but the black and orange aesthetic is also a little overdone. It’s not as new or exciting as, say, an aqua hand-blown glass pumpkin or a floral skull head.

You’re about to be inundated with bone-shaped candles, cobwebs, and flying ghosts, so why not refresh your Halloween style with something a little unexpected? Perhaps something you won’t find at your neighborhood haunted house party?
