Decorating the Fireplace for Halloween

With less than a week to go until Halloween, it’s time to dust off the decorations and get spooky, especially if you’re thinking of throwing a Halloween party. The fireplace is the centrepiece of all homes which have them installed and that’s why they need to have the ‘WOW’ factor when it comes to decorations.

Here are 3 decorating tips to get you top marks in the fireplace decoration department this Halloween…

Candles. These flickering flamed natural lights are perfect for Halloween as they add a spooky atmosphere. You can get decorated ones like pumpkin orange, scented ones which create a festive smell or ones at different heights with a grip which are perfect for opening the door to trick-or-treaters with. Remember, all candles are a fire hazard and safety should be paramount at all times, especially where small children are concerned.

Hanging Decorations. The ledge of a fireplace makes the perfect opportunity to hang things from. If you’re particularly good at spreading out spider webbing, this could be the way to go and if you aren’t afraid of creepy crawlies, try adding a few fake spiders! On the other hand, you can buy cheap pumpkin banners or other Halloween related banners to hang from your fireplace.

Pumpkins. Everyone loves a good pumpkin on Halloween. Carving keeps the kids happy, the grandparents attempt to make pumpkin pie and the excitement of Halloween arrives once you light those Jack O’Lanterns. As an alternative to candles, try placing two small lit pumpkins on the fireplace at either end.

The excitement of Halloween brings dark morning and cold nights along with it. It is the time when we tend to turn on the fireplace after months without use. Remember to get your chimney swept this Halloween to avoid the dangers that come with an unknown blocked fireplace.
