Spooktacular Home Décor: Celebrating Halloween with Diamante Home


As Halloween creeps around the corner, it’s time to dig out your scariest costume for a night of spooky and festive celebrations. While last year we tantalized your taste buds with Halloween-themed cocktails served in our finest glassware, this year, we’re expanding our horizons to explore various enchanting ways to celebrate Halloween and exploring some Spooktacular home décor. Let’s embark on a Halloween journey that combines tradition, creativity, and, of course, some dazzling glassware! But first, here’s a bit of history about why it is celebrated…

Halloween traces its origins to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, celebrated on October 31st. Samhain marked the end of the harvest season and was believed to be a time when the boundary between the living and the dead blurred, leading to customs like bonfires and costume-wearing to ward off evil spirits.

Over time, these traditions intertwined with Roman and Christian observances, eventually becoming the Halloween we know today. Irish immigrants brought their customs to other parts of the world in the 19th century, which included the transformation of turnip-carving into the pumpkin-carving we associate with Halloween now.

Additionally, the Christian observance of All Saints’ Day, also known as All Hallows, on November 1st, played a significant role in shaping Halloween. With its rich history and global influences, Halloween has evolved into a beloved holiday of spooky celebration and creativity.

Pumpkin Carving

One of the most recognisable Halloween traditions is carving pumpkins. But this year, why not take it a step further? Gather your friends or family for a pumpkin carving contest. Provide a selection of stencils and carving tools and get to work on your masterpiece. Your guests can vote on their favourite designs, and the winner receives a spooky prize.

International Halloween Traditions

Halloween isn’t just celebrated at home; it’s a global affair! Why not explore traditions from around the world and incorporate them into your festivities. For example, in Mexico, they celebrate Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) with vibrant sugar skull decorations. You can use our lead-free crystal gin glasses as a bowl to show off your sugar skulls; to pay homage to this tradition.


Haunted House Night

Transform your home into a haunted mansion with the help of our glassware. Dim the lights, place candles in our elegant candle holders, and scatter eerie cobwebs around. Invite your guests on a spooky house tour and tell your spookiest stories. You can even incorporate traditions like the Irish ‘Snap-Apple Night,’ where participants try to bite an apple hanging from a string or set up some classic apple bobbing along the way.

Pumpkin Seed Roasting

Don’t let your pumpkins go to waste! After carving, gather the pumpkin seeds, season them, and roast them to perfection. Serve them in some small bowls for a crunchy, delicious Halloween snack. You can even put out some extra seasonings for guests to customize their own flavours.









Halloween Dining Delights

A Halloween feast is a must, and it’s an opportunity to showcase your glassware. Set a table with some of our elegant goblets and serve up some spine-tingling Halloween inspired dishes, such as a pumpkin pie or soup. You can even get to work decorating some cookies with some hair-raising designs. Decorate the table with spooky-themed centrepieces using our stunning glass vases and candles to create a hauntingly beautiful ambiance.
