Halloween in the courtry is a beautiful thing! Warm colors, earthy decor, and traditional themes create a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. Even if you don't technically live in the country you can make your home feel like you do with these classic Halloween decorations. Grab some spiced cider and we'll show you a few ways to decorate your home in a welcoming cozy country way.


How to Create a Warm and Cozy Halloween Home


Set an Inviting Table


Classic Halloween Decorations and Table Setting

Happy Halloween


Start with an inviting tablescape. Using traditional seasonal shapes and themes, we created a warm setting that can double as a buffet table, bar arrangement, or dinner setting. Use tones that mimic classic autumn colors like orange, gold, and amber, to make for an appealing scene.


Classic Country Halloween Pumpkin trio

Small details make all the difference. This little trio of jack-o-lanterns can be a simple figurine or can be plugged in for glowing appeal. Their cheerful expressions of see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil, solidify their presence in this sweet but spooky Halloween table setting.


Classic Country Boo Pumpkin Halloween Decoration

We like to call him Mr. Boo. His humorous expression will surely add a touch of whimsy to any Halloween decor scene. Place him next to a silly item that he is afraid of or put him next to a truly scary one - either way he will be a topic of conversation!


Classic Country Halloween Berry Twig Decorations

White Pumpkin


Bring the outdoors indoors! These orange berries on a bendable spray are a convincing natural element that really pops when placed beside our faux, cream colored pumpkin.


Classic Country Halloween Table Setting


A staple for filling out any Halloween scene is a visually dense decor item for the background. This will add richness and detail. Here we have used a simple wooden sign in the same rich color scheme as the rest of the table.


Decorate a Window, Mantle, or Entry Table


Classic Country Halloween Boo Sign

Spooky Tree               Black Web Tablecloth


Windowsills are a great spot to decorate. The sun shines through, creating a naturally well-lit background during the day, and spooky shadows at night. We placed a webbed mantle runner along the sill and topped that with an opaque orange cloth. These two elements served as the base for the remaining decorations. This spooky tree has a great eerie country feel, with its twisty and windy branches.

Classic Country Halloween Spooky Sign

Halloween Table Decorations


Beneath the tree we used this spooky wooden word sign along with a few smaller pieces to fill the space. The ceramic pumpkin with star cut-outs is a rustic take on jack-o-lanterns. The stars are asymmetrical and allow for light to shine through.


Classic Halloween Beware Cutout Wooden Sign

Beware Sign          Halloween Signs


On the opposite side of the window we used the matching "beware" sign that comes in a three-pack along with "boo," and "spooky." To fill the remaining background space we used this fun owl luminary. LED tea lights can be placed inside to bring the lantern to flickering life.


Classic Country Halloween Decorations

Orange Glitter Pumpkin


Don't forget about small bare spaces on your floor! Just below the windowsill was a perfect spot to place a few heavier Halloween decorations. The wooden web sign can be set on its own or hung on a wall by it's [included] orange ribbon. The coarse glitter on the pumpkin is large enough to reflect the dark tones of the sign, which ties everything together for country, homey, decoration perfection!
