Halloween can inspire creativity on many levels for children and adults alike. Everyone who has trick or treated as a youngster has a fond memory of a spooky house—or the one with the best candy. Check out a few ideas for celebrating the season with Halloween decor. 

Patch NYC Creepy Crawly Salad Plates

The four creepy-crawly plates feature Patch NYC’s signature scary skull, kooky kitty, crazy crow and batty bat, illustrated in their signature haunting illustrative style. Perfect for side dishes, salads and desserts, the glazed porcelain dishes are safe for use in the microwave and oven then clean up easily in the dishwasher. Check our their black skull candles, glasses, and napkins to complete the mood. Set of four, 8”diameter. $24.95 crateandbarrel.com

Corn Husk Owls

More adorable than spooky, these watchful owls can be perched on your buffet table or bar to create a stark Halloween ambiance. In a clever combination, their bodies are accentuated with a smattering of real feathers, while the black corn husks mimic the soft texture of an owl’s actual body feathers. The small one measures a diminutive 3 inches high, so you could buy a few to scatter around the table and house. Perhaps one in the bathroom, tucked in a bookshelf, or peeking behind a floral arrangement. The tall owl is 10 inches high, for creating more of a centerpiece. The owls are fashioned by hand and can only be used indoors. $9.95 and $24.95 crateandbarrel.com
