My kids are grown but I still want to decorate with easy neutral Halloween decor for the holiday.
I’m not a fan of the orange color palette so I will be using white and black neutrals. I will also work some of my tan and brown antique books into my decor.
If you are visiting from The Tattered Pew – Welcome! I hope you enjoyed the Easy Haunted House Silhouette Craft that Kelly created.

Is it too soon to be decorating for Halloween?
If you’re a neutral Halloween decor person like me, then it’s not too early.
My Halloween is very subtle and is really just a little extra addition to my fall decor.
If you are an all-out Halloween fan then I would say yes, it might be a little too early.
As a blogger, my job is to inspire you so Halloween is happening at this small house.
What is Neutral Halloween Decor
Neutral Halloween decor to me is just adding a few things to my already neutral fall decor.
- Black 3-D Bats or Butterflies on your mantel or wall.
- Witches hats hanging from the ceiling or adorning the top of a pumpkin or figurine.
- Witches brooms are very neutral and can lay or hang in your home or on your front porch.
- Pumpkins can go anywhere and scream fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving.
- I’m loving the white carved pumpkin look and if we still had kids at home; or even kids who trick-or-treated by us, I would have them adorning my porch.
- Black candle sticks or candelabras make a fun addition to your dining table or mantel for Halloween.
- Being a vintage collector, I have amber apothecary jars on my coffee table. I’m going to add a few vintage-like poison labels to the jars. How fun!
- Vintage Books are also great items to use for fall/Halloween/harvest decor
What Halloween Looks Like at Our House
Our little village hosts a Halloween Trick-or-Treat event on the Sunday before the 21st. Children can trick-or-treat in the neighborhood from 1:00 – 4:00 pm.
It really is more of a family event and when my kids were little I loved it because Halloween night was typically cold & rainy here in Illinois. We’ve even had snow on the actual Halloween Date
We live on a long dead-end street and there are only 6 homes so we rarely have ever had kids come to our house.
That is another reason why I don’t do much traditional Halloween decor.
Easy Neutral Halloween Decor
Because I keep things neutral, I decorate for fall and then I just add in a few fun Halloween pieces during the last few weeks of October.
It then gets packed up and put away the day after Halloween.
Then I add just a little Thanksgiving decor to the neutral fall theme.
Still love Our Frame TV
