You have 2-and-a-half weeks until Halloween, which means you still have time to decorate your home and get in the spirit. Thankfully it doesn’t take much effort to make a big impact around your house while embracing this fun holiday. You can go all harvesty with some pumpkins and gourds from your local farmers’ market or plant store; you can go elegant and slightly creepy with solely black and white décor; or you can embrace the orange, black, yellow and white traditional color scheme of Halloween with lots of fun crafts … you can do just about anything, but just do something!

Today we’re highlighting great décor to make your home festive and perhaps a bit creepy. We used the SB Guide category “Gifts & Home Accessories” to find some great stores in the area to help you out.

The Beveled Edge

No other store quite goes all out with the same gusto as The Beveled Edge when it comes to Halloween décor. It takes almost four days of hard work to get all the Halloween fun perfectly set up throughout the store, and it’s quite a feast for the eyes. Everything from mercury pumpkins and laughing skeletons to teeth soap and life-size grim reapers can be found at this store, which specializes in framing and gifts on White Bridge Road.
