I have always had a fascination with vintage, whether it’s clothing, homeware, movies, or music. This is why I’m naturally drawn to vintage-inspired and vintage Halloween decorations, costumes, and accessories.
I often find my inspiration from old horror movies, vintage magazines, and television shows like The Twilight Zone or Dark Shadows. Turn back the hands of time this Halloween with these delightfully spooky and whimsical picks. You’ll be surprised that some of these picks can be found at Walmart.com, which can help save you a bundle!
Hauntingly Beautiful Tablescape
Place a centerpiece like the Beistle Witch and Moon Centerpiece to create a focal point for your vintage-inspired Halloween tablescape. Consider placing food on decorative plates and in festive bowls with designs like witches, black cats, bats, and spiders. Napkins such as the Halloween Luncheon Bar Drink Part Decoration Paper Napkins will add the vintage touch that you’re looking for when serving food to your guests.

It was customary even back then for people to gather around and tell ghost stories, whether it was Halloween or not. It wasn’t because those people actually believed these stories, but telling them always helped fend off boredom. Some of the stories could haunt you for life! I’ll admit there’s nothing quite like a good, old-fashioned ghost story that will give you a chill down your spine. That is why I enjoy an old-fashioned spooky read every now and then. Collect them, read them, or simply stack them together as coffee table books to evoke a festive atmosphere.
Don’t be basic! Dare to be different. There isn’t a better time of the year than Halloween when it comes to indulging your wildest imagination, especially when it comes to your spooky soiree!
