Crate And Barrel’s Halloween Decorations For 2018 Are Sophisticated Goth Goals
I just moved into the first actual house I have lived in since I was a teenager — not an apartment! A house! — and I’m not sure whether it’s just because I’m still in the “new house honeymoon phase” or what, but I have recently been seized by the overwhelming urge to decorate for every holiday ever. Naturally, then, you can imagine what seeing Crate and Barrel’s Halloween decorations for 2018 did to me. Hint: It involved a lot of willpower and making sure I kept my wallet hidden very, very far out of sight.
Crate and Barrel tends to operate at a higher price point than, say, Target does, so their collection isn’t quite as affordable as some of the Halloween collections from other retailers which have made similar waves this fall. If you’re up for a splurge, though, Crate and Barrel’s picks are spookily elegant — and there are some pieces scattered throughout the collection which won’t break the bank, too. If you’re a candle person, for example, you’re in luck — there are tons of beautiful and delightfully-scented picks for you here.
October is a mere week and a half away, so if you’re planning on decorating for the best holiday on the entire calendar, now would be a good time to finish up your plans. Here are some of my favorite picks from Crate and Barrel’s Halloween collection to help you along; check out the rest here.
1. Cauldron Bowls
2. Mulberry Wine-Scented Pillar Candle
3. Spiderweb Dish Towels
4. Halloween Twinkle Lights
5. Pumpkin Place Card Holder
6. Orb Lanterns
Alas, I am not at a point yet where I feel I can purchase pumpkin-shaped lanterns for $50 and up and still consider myself a responsible adult. (Pumpkin-shaped lanterns will not pay my bills, after all.) If I ever reach that point, though, you’d better believe I’m getting myself a set of these.
7. Pumpkin Lanterns
8. Spiderweb Salad Plate
9. Hallows Vase
10. Black Mauve Poppy Stem
11. Spiderweb Embroidered Table Runner
12. Ivory Pumpkin Candles
13. White Birch Flameless Pillar Candles
14. Pumpkin Serving Bowls With Lids
15. LED Spiderwebs
Alas, unlike the Twinkle Lights, these ones aren’t battery-powered; at least the cord is six feet long, though, which should be enough to enable you to live your dream of decorating any wall you please with an enormous, light-up spiderweb. The smaller size starts at $29.95.
16. Spooky Black Trees
17. Web Small Halloween Luminary Bag
18. Halloween BOO Letters
19. Skull Candle
