It may technically still be summer, but late August marks the start of the Halloween shopping and decorating season at plenty of retailers — and it’s never too early to get into the spooky spirit. Whether you want to add some new pieces to your existing Halloween decor collection, or want a complete refresh, these retailers have some terrifyingly cute options to make your kitchen feel magical and dressed-up for the season.

For this roundup, I stopped by some of my favorite shops — Pottery Barn, IKEA, West Elm, Crate & Barrel, Anthropologie, and World Market — on the hunt for some festive kitchen decor options that didn’t feel overly gaudy, generic, or kitschy. Run, don’t walk to these retailers ASAP to snag these picks for your space.

These sophisticated glasses are stylish and thrilling, like a hand reaching from the grave. The double Old-Fashioned glass is perfect for most cocktails and mocktails (but beware: They aren’t dishwasher-safe). I snagged the Skeleton Hand Stemless Wine Glass too, which is perfect for a blood-red pinot noir or some ice-cold agua de jamaica.

These charming and festive salt and pepper shakers are nothing but gourd vibes. Dress up your table with these glazed stoneware shakers — one in the shape of a white pumpkin and the other a squash — plus a handy metal stand with a dainty leaf detail. (These will definitely stick around in my home year-round.)

We love IKEA’s first-ever, brand-new Halloween collection, so we’d be remiss not to include a couple items from it here! One of our favorite pieces is this creepy-crawly tealight holder that looks great on small dining tables or kitchen counters. It’s made of a powder-coated sturdy steel, so even if you try to squash this spider, it’ll stay intact.

Why opt for regular salad plates when you can have these otherworldly designs adorn your table? The stoneware set comes with four plates, each with a different magical design (a tarot palm, a snake, and eye, and a sun-moon), but my personal favorite is definitely the celestial snake. Best of all, these plates are microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

These wine and Champagne glasses have a slithering snake as the stem that’ll make you feel like you’re in a Victorian painting as you sip on your elixir. Create a hauntingly alluring tablescape with these glasses and this skull candelabra as the centerpiece.
