To many people, Halloween is the best holiday. Creepy but with a fun edge, it conjures up images of ghosts, ghouls, and all things dark. But past the age of trick-or-treating, things can get a little, well, hokey. That’s why I was excited when I stumbled upon West Elm’s Halloween shop. It’s a curated selection of products that are a little dark, a little moody, and definitely full of style. In fact, all of it can be used year-round.

Here, some of my favorite picks from the section that are making me even more excited for fall.

1. Modern Brass Candle Holders

These candle holders add just the right amount of macabre, without being too over-the-top. Add some drippy, waxy candles to heighten the mood. You can also use these far past Halloween — they’ll look great on your dining table during dinner parties.

2. Petrified Wood Cheese Board

This cheese board is handcrafted from — you guessed it — petrified wood. No two are alike, and the dark finish is perfect for topping with adult Halloween treats (like cheese).

3. Arched Hanging Lanterns

These lanterns are actually super versatile — you can hang them on your front porch or in your backyard, or set them out on a table or around your outdoor seating. The candles are protected from the wind, meaning you can use these on even the most blustery, dare we say spooky, nights.

4. Faceted Metal Vases

For a vintage look, score one of these metal vases with an antique-y brass finish. They’re giving serious Art Deco vibes, and will look great in a darker room with fresh flowers (or the faux tulips featured below). They’re available in five different sizes and shapes.

5. Premium Flicker Flameless Wax Pillar Candles

These flameless candles have a real wax exterior to enhance the look and “realness” of them, which we appreciate. Leave them “burning” throughout the night or put them on a timer — your choice.

6. Faux French Tulip Bunch

If you really want to add some drama to your space, these faux tulips are an easy (and super inexpensive) option. At just $5 you can snag a couple bunches and place them around your home — and because they’re fake, you can store them and use them next year, too.

7. Schott Zwiesel Concerto Punch Bowl Set

This punch bowl is ready for Halloween party punches — like this one. Made of crystal that’s been strengthened with titanium, this isn’t just any old punch bowl. It’s an elegant addition to any party, and it’s highly resistant to breakage, chipping, scratching, and staining. (And did we mention it’s dishwasher safe?).
