Halloween Party Ideas for Kids

You don’t have to turn the whole house into a carnival attraction. Concentrating your decor efforts on the table and one other spot—like a mantel, a sideboard, or a deep windowsill—is just as effective (and a lot less hassle). The key is amassing affordable multiples: here, a row of pumpkins and a cluster of monochromatic candleholders made from wine bottles. (There’s that matte-black spray paint again!)
