Confession: I am not a fan of Halloween. Sure costumes can be fun. I love an excuse to buy Almond Joys and Nerds…but I could do without the haunted hey rides and corn syrup blood splats (Yikes). I could also do without all that drugstore kitsch that yells out from the aisles begging to be part of your seasonal festivities.

Black and purple accordion witch legs? JUST SAY NO!

How about a more distinguished decor option for your festive entertaining? How about spinning spooky on its head and highlighting some Gothic inspired design with a modern twist? I say yes please and can someone please spot me $13k for that black widow looking bowl of magic up there? Hello dangerous!
