How to Shake Up Your Halloween Decor with Cheerful Colors

Want to give your Halloween decor or party a little twist? How about a cheerful, colorful Halloween? It might seem counterintuitive given what the holiday is known for but that’s what makes the concept so interesting. Embracing a color palette and theme that contrasts with the traditional Halloween vibe are what makes it such a bold, compelling choice.

You can still keep the spooky elements that are associated with Halloween (skulls, jack-o-lanterns, spiders, ghosts, witches, etc). Then, pair them with a colorful theme and some contrasting elements like flowers. It’s a fun way to put a spin on Halloween that no one will expect, especially if you’re throwing a party.

Here are 10 cheerful and colorful Halloween decor ideas to inspire you.
