Think about putting vining up and down the sides of the cake and including tiny pumpkins, leaves, and other spooky treats as well! 

5. Lanterns: while lanterns can really be used during any season, when you add a Halloween theme to the wedding the effect is alluring and slightly spooky. Consider adding webbing around the wires and getting orange colored lanterns for the extra festive boost.
