Adding French Country To Halloween

Did you ever feel like you wanted to add a little elegance to Halloween?
Imagery for Halloween can be exceedingly kitschy and so often the decor includes oodles of plastic. But for me, decorating for Halloween is based around one concept and there’s no reason it can’t be done while remaining faithful to your design sensibility.
The central unifying concept is color. Black and orange is so integral to Halloween, that it almost feels impossible to use it or wear it at any other time of year. For this reason, I’ve approached my decor utilizing color as the identifying Halloween feature, while including traditional French country elements to up the taste level.
Pumpkins, of course, are essential for any Halloween vignette. The Chinese lantern plants add a pop of orange and the chalkboard menu offers a touch of black. Seasonal potpourri lends spicy fragrance, as well.
The French rustic jug and orange marmalade would look lovely on a breakfast table, but when combined with the black canister, they suddenly say Halloween.
