Halloween is the time of the year, like Christmas where we get to go back to our childhoods. If you’re planning a Halloween party tomorrow night, we’re sure that you haven’t forgotten anything important like drinks, food and decorations. We know the focus of your attention will be on the door and the entranceway but once your guests arrive, you’re going to want to let them know that not only do you throw the best party but that you have the best decorations.

There is a wide variety objects that you decorate your fireplace with such as carved pumpkins and gourds of all shapes and sizes. Spooky ghosts can be made into arrangements with cheesecloth cobwebs, bats, spiders, wreaths and candles. If you just let your imagination run wild, there are plenty of inspirational decorating ideas for your Halloween mantel this year.

But the most important thing to keep in mind is that flammable objects have to be kept away from open flames. Whether it’s a lit candle or a fireplace, blankets, paper and cheesecloth decorations shouldn’t be too close. If you do light a fire keep children and small animals away from your fireplace. You should even put up your gate just in case. Have a safe holiday and save some candy for next week.
