I had a "haunted house" theme for my decorations last year, and white sheets featured heavily. I got most of mine at thrift stores, but the hotel idea is awesome. We covered all the furniture with them, to make that abandoned nobody's-home look. Some I tore up and hung for curtains. Lots of candles, candelabras. We printed pictures off the internet of Victorian people, Cival War pictures, blew them up, framed them, and poof! instant creepy old "portraits" for the walls. Got a bunch of different sized glass containers at the thrift store (10-25 cents apiece) filled them with different colored water (with a little milk thrown in to make a murky effect) and in them we put a cauiflower (brain), an anise bulb (heart), a few fingers, noses and ears that I bought at our local Halloween store, it was awesome! Everywhere you looked there was a body part! As we are on a budget, too, we like to shop AFTER Halloween. I have gotten some great deals on some really cool props. It just takes awhile to collect them, but I've got lots now. Have fun!!
