Putting a Light Touch on Halloween — with White Décor

When you think of Halloween décor ideas, chances are the first color you think of isn’t white! These ideas, however, may change your mind — and they’ll be fun to do, too. Make “ghosts” out of white frosting or meringue plus marshmallows with bits of black frosting or licorice for “eyes.” A white punchbowl with black spiders on it, white candles with plastic spiders crawling up the sides, white cake with a spider decorations, and white pumpkins with faces carved to look “dead” are all fun options for the creepy side of white. Make chocolate cupcakes and frost them with white “bandage” strips across their tops, add red and black eyes, and you’ve got “mummycakes.” And, speaking of mummies, how about a mummy form to stand in one corner holding a sign saying (of course), “Mummy loves you”?

What would Halloween be without a few skeletons and bones? Craft fake individual “bones” and hang as decorations, or make white cookies in the shape of bones and frost with a thin white coating; they’ll even have a nice crunch when you bite them! For more classic and less-scary looks, paint pumpkins white and cover them with crocheted doilies — you can often find those in vintage stores, or use paper ones from craft shops. And for a neat touch of white light, get a “funkin” (fake carveable pumpkin), hollow it out, and insert a hanging-lamp kit in the shell. Complete the light with a low-wattage bulb for a beacon that might be the hit of the night. These are only a few ideas; use some of the inspiration here, and your Halloween will be “just white.”
