Are you ready for Halloween this year? Have you decided on a costume? Do you have plenty of supplies for trick-or-treaters? And is your home looking spooky enough? If you’re having a party or just welcoming trick-or-treaters into your home, then you’ll need to transform your kitchen with our Haunted Halloween ideas that are frightfully inspiring.
You can’t go wrong with a few staples of Halloween such as fake spider-webs, bugs, bats and skeletons. These classics never fail to get a reaction out of those unfortunate enough to step into your home on October 31st.
One of the easiest and least expensive ways to transform your kitchen this Halloween is to turn the lights down. Simple but effective, everyone on some level is afraid of the dark. If you want to go one step further, why not incorporate some spooky coloured lighting to add to the atmosphere i.e., orange, green, or red.
There is no Halloween decoration more appropriate than a pumpkin. Simply open your pumpkin at the top and remove the insides before carving an expression on to the outside. Pop a candle on the inside for that extra spooky orange glow and spread them across your kitchen.
Speaking of which, why not host a pumpkin carving competition to really bring out the kid’s creative side. If that’s not really for you then there are plenty of other activities you could do this Halloween i.e., Bobbing for apples, wrap the mummy or even telling scary ghost stories.
If you have the time to get creative with your Halloween preparations, then why not try baking some terrifying treats. There is plenty of fun recipes online which show you how to make some themed cakes and cookies that will look amazing beside your range of decorations.
Make sure to offer your guests a variety of chilling beverages using ingredients that will make your drinks blood red, pumpkin orange and grotesque green. A great showstopper for your Halloween themed kitchen would be the addition of cauldron. Not only does it fit your haunted Halloween kitchen theme, but it can also be used practically for storing ice cold drinks. If you really are pulling out all the stops then pick up some dry ice to create a freaky fog effect coming through your cauldron.
