It is not hard to find Halloween decorations. Every store should carry sort assortment during the month of October. For a less commercialized atmosphere, you might prefer Halloween decorations from nature’s bounty. Create lovely centerpieces from pumpkins, dried flowers, and leaves. Or set an orange or black pillar candle in a hurricane lamp and fill around the candle with cranberries, bittersweet berries, or dried Indian corn. Carved pumpkins with tea lights inside also make wonderful Halloween centerpieces. Large pumpkins, carved and not carved, and cornstalks can be arranged throughout your reception area. Jack-o-lanterns can become your central decorating attraction. Use wired ribbons in your wedding colors to add decorative accents to your arrangements and to make bows to accent doorways, tables, pews, and the aisle. Don;t forget to decorate with ghosts, witches and goblins, but be sure to keep in mind that not everyone likes these kinds of things. The last thing you want to do is frighten a child or offend a guest with your choice of decorations. Consider having a spice or pumpkin wedding cake and serve hot, spiced cider to your guests. For a bit of entertainment, you might plan a traditional Halloween game of bobbing for apples.
