25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

Perfectly Pretty Pumpkins

There is a growing trend in pumpkin decorating--crafting beautiful pumpkins that match interior design, as opposed to scary carved pumpkins. So I went pretty pumpkin hunting to bring you the best on the web. *All photos by bhg.com.


These silver candle-holder pumpkins are simple to make with silver spray paint. To make it easier to cut out holes for the candles, use styrofoam craft pumpkins. They look even more elegant on the silver serving tray and pedastils. If you don't have any, simply paint an old tray and candle holders to match the pumpkins. If you are decorating with black and silver, a black tray would be a beautiful contrast under the silver pumpkins.



You don't have to be an artist to make these accented pumpkins. All you need is paint and stencils. Group these together uder a scrap piece of velvet or lace for a Victorian look.



This rick rack pumpkin is pretty and goes perfect with a country theme. Alternating regular plaid ribbon really makes the rick rack ribbon pop. You can use little pins to hold it in place, but if you use hot glue, the pumpkin will stay fresh longer. Better yet, use a craft pumpkin and reuse this every year.



This is a total show stopper. Can you imagine it on a buffet, entry table or large dining table for a Fall party? What a great conversation piece it would be. You have to take a chandelier and turn it upside down. Go thrifting, see if you can find one at a flea market or antique shop and paint it to match your decor. You could also use a large candleabra or an assortment of old lamp bases.



These stacked pumpkins are so whimsical, and the possibilites are endless. Use any kind of blingy craft accessories, pearls, ribbons or bows to adorn painted pumpkins. This would look great in a children's room, but if you'd rather do something like this for your front porch, simply use nuetral colors. I think it would look great with bronze-colored paint and gold accents.
