Autumn not only brings about a beautiful change of scenery, it also welcomes one of the country’s favorite holidays: Halloween. With horror as the major theme for most exterior décor, it can be hard to stand out from your neighbors. So, try something different this year by adding a subtle elegance to your home’s spooky Halloween exterior.

Embellished Pumpkins

Instead of carving a pumpkin, try wrapping your pumpkins in silky sheer fabrics to add an elegant and decorative touch to your front lawn. For example, a lace black and white fabric brings dimension to the decor, while a colorful sheer fabric adds a much needed touch of color to autumn’s otherwise earth-toned scenery.
