  • Skeleton and skull décor is rivaling pumpkins as the overarching symbol of Halloween, though pumpkins are still strong this year.
  • Macabre animal skeletons, taxidermy and preserved bugs are a throwback to early scientific experiments. X-ray plates and apothecary items underscore the 19th-century biology and weird science theme.

  • Look for continued influence from the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead, offering a colorful change from the classic orange and black.
