Inspiring Halloween Goodness

An avid fan of most things Halloween, I have found myself especially excited to see such noteworthy good design being integrated into the aisles of Halloween merchandise this year. Retailers like Pottery Barn, Grandin Road, Martha Stewart, Target, and many Etsy designers are definitely getting with the program and offering up authentically fun and spooky decor and costumes. And me likey.

I'm particularly excited about the simple pleasure of pumpkin decorating though. Every year, an eager trip to the pumpkin patch seems subsequently followed by blank canvas panic and then some form of last minute spooky face with jagged teeth (I'm guilty of it too.) Get inspired by some of these beyond-the-jack-o-lantern creations. Placement, technique and a little creative thinking take these art forms to a whole new level of style.
