Vintage Halloween Decor

While searching for fun halloween recipes, I came across the idea of a vintage inspired halloween a la Tim Burton (you know, creator of The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Edward Scissorhands (a personal favorite), and many more movies).   This is a great idea to get away from the traditional black and orange and to create a more ethereal slightly spooky look like many of Burton's films. The idea came from this website, but it didn't offer much in the way of  ideas, so I included a few of their pictures and searched other ideas out my own...

{So gorgeous!}

{If this doesn't make you think of Tim Burton art, I don't know what will!}
