Top Halloween trends for 2021 surprise you by combining many of the classics with a modern twist and bring vintage elements back to life.

Go All-out in the Front yard!
There are plenty of other times when minimalism is the way forward this year, but decorating the front porch or yard for Halloween this season is not one of those places. Go all-out in the front yard when it comes to Halloween decoration and try out themes that vary from a spooky grave yard to maybe one that captures the current, popular zombie trend. The classic like jack-o-lanterns, carved pumpkins, and wiry white ghosts are all a part of this setting.
Decorative Halloween Trees
Trees are not just for Christmas decorations alone this year with orange and black Halloween trees making a big splash! These small and stylish decorative pieces can be bought easily and you can decorate them with either an eerie, dark theme or one that is much more light and minimal. DIY Halloween trees crafted from bottle brushes, small trees on the fireplace mantle and vintage, illuminate Halloween trees readily available from sources like etsy are all ‘in’ this Halloween.
Bring Halloween to Every Room
Each holiday season we love the idea of bringing the festive charm to every room of the house and this adds to the celebratory mood in the air. Halloween is no different and you should try and add lovely, appropriate Halloween decorations to rooms beyond just the living area and the dining room this fall. Bring a bit of Halloween inspiration to the bedroom with ceiling decorations, cutout next to the windows and usher spookiness into the kitchen with Halloween-themed garlands, decorations and maybe even kitchenware.
Old School with Halloween Decorations
With everyone taking a more modern approach to Halloween in the last few years, it is easy to understand why people want to bring back a bit of old school charm to the displays this year. A lot of orange and black, the timeless Halloween elements like hanging bat motifs, witch-cutouts in the windows and cobwebs all around are a great way to embrace this look. Lighting this setting right makes an even bigger visual impact.
Embrace a Hint of Dark Minimalism
Not a big fan of more ghastly Halloween decorations? Maybe you are not someone who loves the look of zombies, bats, cobwebs and witches all around. Not to worry as there is a more minimal and contemporary way to decorate for the day and one that is equally trendy this season. Simple, framed Halloween-themed posters and wall art, elegant cutouts that fit in with the modern look and Halloween-themed accent pillows should do the trick in here.
