There are lots of people out there who really aren't into the spirit of Halloween; least of all decorating.  But no one said, you have to go crazy and spend lots of money to be a little festive.
Here's a quick little look I put together for those that want to spruce up their foyer/entryway table, coffee table or desk. 
I gathered a couple of design books that had the color black in them and set them on a printed napkin in the same color family.  A black martini glass (which can be filled and decorated), painted pumpkin and candle creates a simple but festive look.

You don't have to be perfect when painting and decorating your pumpkin.  This is your way to get creative.  You can make it pretty or scary.  If you're like me, I have tons of leftover paint in the house.  Here, I painted the pumpkin in a pale pink and painted the top in a bronze metallic.  Adding decorative rhinestones for a little glam.

You create a similar look by removing the books and replacing them with a decorative mirror (used as a tray).  You can add spiders and cob web if you want to add another layer.

What are some of your looks for Halloween?
