Macabre

There's no doubt that the 31st of October is the spookiest night of the year. It's Halloween, when the ghosts of the dead mingle with the living. A time when the physical and supernatural worlds are closest and magical things can happen.

Here are a few spine chilling ideas about how to spread fear among any visitors who are hopefully not of a nervous disposition.  

Gothic Gargoyles

A Florentine DragonIron Doorbell will immediately help set the scene along with gothic style stone garden benches and planters. Gargoyles perched high above and wall sculptures, based on age old tales of tree people and forests coming to life, might add to the ambience while your guests sip uneasily on their Bloody Marys.

If young children are invited, they can be entranced by fairies, nymphs, pixies and trolls and superbly crafted statuettes of cherubs, angels, wizards and unicorns placed across the lawn or in secret places.

Scary Ornaments

For adults it’s entirely possible that their stiff upper lip will become somewhat wobbly when confronted with a finely detailed zombie rising from the swamp that was your flower bed, meticulously detailed and very scary. The Macabre Ornament is a recent addition to our range of stone ornaments, you have to agree that he's not the prettiest.

For the party poopers who have sought refuge inside your house, surprise them with the monstrous bulging eyed Zombie at the Door whose bloody head and hands will appear to have smashed through the lounge wall. Finally, to add a mysterious atmosphere, use Witches Mist for a magical spooky effect.
