Red White and Black Halloween

Not into orange and black for Halloween. Here we used red, white and black for our Halloween decorating.

Who says Halloween decor has to be orange? Well, I love orange but not in my kitchen so this year I decided to work with what I had and bring in some black and white Halloween decorations to mix up with what was already on my kitchen shelf.

I was really trying to make it easier on myself this year and try to mix in decor and not have to take everything down like I have in previous years.

Love this little black and white pumpkin from Target years ago.

I love this witch silhouette. She flies proudly through the kitchen every Halloween.

Battery operated candles add a flicker of fun at night. I love to pull up into the driveway at night and see the glow of all my little holiday lights shining through the windows.

This little spook was a gift from a friend. He is smiling over my kitchen.

Not too scary and I didn't have to take down and store all the goodies normally on the shelf. Simplified. Notice kitchen still not painted. Life.


  1. Looks adorable Elaine. Isn't it great when you can work with what you already have and get a wonderful display? Have a great day friend.

  2. Very fun! I love the colour combination!

  3. I love red and black and white together. Very cute!!

  4. LOVE it all Elaine -- Black and Red is better than Black and Orange :)


  5. Very very cute. I love the black and white and red.

  6. That is so cute! I love that you veered from orange.

  7. I am loving your red, white and black Halloween things...which are all very cute! ;D

  8. I love all your added black and white decorations!

  9. Very cute. I'e been wondering if you ever got around to painting your kitchen. Love the reds and blacks

  10. Thanks for following me and your comment! I'm following you now, too! Love all your decorations,especially the black and white pumpkin! Also the polka dots - so cute!

  11. OK I love the splash of red for Halloween. You are the clever cute one for sure. Happy Fall!

  12. Your shelf is very cute, but I must tell you I am CRAZY about that darling vintage toy stove with the red handles!!

  13. The little spook is much too jolly to scare anyone!


    Darling, scarlet ladybug,
    On the prowl for bugs and such,
    If I met you on the rug,
    I would not be frightened (much).

  14. I like it! And I like not having to take down everything, like I did:)

  15. That is very cute.
    I couldn't help but smile back at your little guy with the big smile!
    That stove is adorable.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog!

  16. Super cute! These past couple of years I have been on a mission to simplify my holiday decor. Fewer areas decorated, more of my "regular" stuff left alone, etc. I'm still working on it, trying to get closer and closer to my goal of only using about 30 percent of what I used to. (that goal does not apply to my christmas tree... everything else yes, tree no.) I've already donated a bunch of stuff that I will not be using anymore, and plan to have another box out the door the week after Thanksgiving. It feels great!

  17. Oh my goodness...this is soooo cute...you did an outstanding job!!!


  18. cute, cute , cute..I love the mixing of it all...Spooky sweet...Mica

    P.s still couldn't leave a message so i switched a different browser and it works her...not sure why.

  19. This is inspiring to me! I have a kitchen with yellow, red, and black, and I don't want to orange it up, either. Love your ideas. The witch pumpkin is my favorite part.

  20. I love it, Elaine, but of course red and white is my very favorite color combination!!! :D

  21. love it.

  22. I love how you worked Halloween in amongst all of your decor, and it looks fantastic! I've done that too the last few years. So much easier, and it doesn't feel like a hassle to decorate anymore!
    Happy REDnesday,

  23. I love your red white and black decor. I have been thinking of dong the silhouette on a pumpkin this year. Yours looks wonderful!Big Hugs, please stop by tomorrow and linkup for the Thursday Favorite Things Blog hop. :-)

  24. Everyone is saying this, but I have to say it again, cute, Cute, CUTE!!! I adore the white pumpkin with the witch!

  25. I love that you made creepy Halloween decor look cheerful!

  26. Red, white and black Halloween....different, and I like it! I like mixing it up whenever possible, and this certainly does that! The pumpkin with the witch cutout is really cute!!! Don't stress on the unpainted kitchen. It'll be there! :-) Have a relaxing weekend!
