Halloween Pub Decor Tips
When it comes to Halloween Pub Decor I always try to keep it Simple and Classic.
AVOID THE WITCHES AND GHOSTS
Unless you can do it spectacularly well avoid the witches and ghosts and cheap plastic items – anyone can bung up a few cheap decorations but customers are much more discerning now, they are always expecting something more.
For a classic, warm welcoming theme go for branches, wreaths, pumpkins and autumnal leaves. Real branches and leaves can be found in the garden, park or field …..Free!!!! Leaves can be easily reinstated once they dry out.
FAKE CAN WORK TOO
You can buy really good fake pumpkins and wreaths, that you can use again and again. The wreath pictured is from Flamingo Display. Use the fake pumpkins higher up so people will not be able to tell whether they are real or not and use real pumpkins at lower levels with cut outs and candles in them… Real pumpkins may need to be replaced after a week or 10 days but attention to detail is always worth it. Make sure to put a tray under the pumpkin in case of leakage. Mix in some of the smaller gourds and leaves to give the display some added interest.
USE CHAIN LIGHTS
Lay different sizes of pumpkins and leaves on a window sill or along a cornice, fireplace or dresser. Use some of your white Christmas light chains on and around displays. This will draw the eye to the display.
Choose 4 or 5 areas(depends on your pub size) for your Halloween Pub Decor and focus the displays in those areas creating interesting views for customers.
Nothing better than candles for atmosphere. Use lanterns with white or cream candles within your displays. Candelabras can bring a real sense of elegance and intrigue. Decorate the candelabra with black ribbon or paint the candelabra frame black for dramatic effect. Black candles shown here are also very in keeping with the theme.
