Tips for a spooky atmosphere
The season of fun and frights is finally here: Jack-o’-lanterns will be lit, fake spiderwebs will be hung and bowls of candy corn will be politely ignored. Sweets and decorations are a mainstay of Halloween, but what if you wanted to take things to the next level? We’ve got a few tips to get your home ready for the spookiest time of year:
Pick a spooky theme
There are many styles of Halloween décor, ranging from fantastical to frightening. Whichever you prefer, it’s important to remain consistent. Decking out your home with fun, cartoon bats and realistic tombstones is the sort of jarring decorative mismatch you want to avoid. Pick a specific theme for your décor to help keep you consistent. For example, caldrons, broomsticks and the Under My Spell Warmer work together to create a bewitching vibe.
Build a Halloween playlist
While people go over the top when it comes to Halloween décor, music is frightfully overlooked. The right soundtrack can really punctuate your spooky aesthetic, whether you opt for eerie soundscapes or monstrously fun pop favorites! If you have outdoor speakers, you can create a truly memorable experience for trick-or-treaters using the playlist you built!
Use the power of scent
Much like music, fragrance is often ghosted by Halloween decorators. As sensory experiences go, scent has a powerful ability to stir up emotions and memories. Enchanting fragrances like the Cranberry Pumpkin Spice Scentsy Bar and Caramel Apple Crumble Scentsy Oil can add a whole new dimension to your run of the mill Halloween decorations!
While the holiday celebrates creatures who go bump in the night, light can drastically elevate your Halloween style. Just a simple change in color is all you need to create a spooky atmosphere. Try using a red Scentsy 25 Watt Light Bulb in the Paranormal Pumpkin Warmer for a hauntingly fun display!
