HAPPY HALLOWEEN GOBLINS AND GHOULS!!! ?I JUST finished decorating our house this weekend (talk about getting it done in the nick of time!! LOL!!) … when I decorate for Halloween, not only do I decorate our front entrance and yard but I like to deck out the inside of our home too! Over the years I’ve accumulated some awesome Halloween decor which I reuse every year but I also like to add a few new items to my stash each year and I tend to do my Halloween decor shopping NOW because everything is starting to go on SALE!! I mean, why pay full price when you can snag it at a good deal for next year?? The beauty of Halloween decor is that the colours never change and nothing goes “out of style” so you might as well wait until it’s half off … am I right, or am I RIGHT?! LOL! Some of my favourite places to shop for Halloween decor online are Amazon (pretty cheap and ships quickly!), Etsy (so many unique decorations here!) and Pottery Barn (for quality, classic decor).
Alright, let’s go for a little “Halloween Decor Tour” in my home … let’s start inside! I think it’s so fun to get a little creepy with the decor … note the fake teeth in the dome?! LOL!! And the eyeballs in the vase?! I’m also obsessed with placing fake skulls and crows throughout our home … I’m not sure why, but I actually LOVE the look of the crows, you can place them in fun awkward spots and they really do the trick of making things feel SPOOKY!
Moving on to outside … I love buying a ton of pumpkins and lining our staircase with them, add some cobwebs and fake spiders and you are good to go! LOL! I also made a creepy little graveyard in front of our house too … and let me tell you, these foggy mornings we have been having lately here in the Okanagan really make our yard look EERIE!!!
If you haven’t checked out my Halloween Shop page you should take a look at it as you might be able to snag some fun Halloween decorations on clearance for next year!! I know I’ll be taking a browse through it to see what I can grab!
So today I’m planning on taking Leo to the Pumpkin Patch with some of his friends from Daycare so they can have a little playdate and get in the Halloween spirit, then we will be heading home so I can start prepping our house for our HUGE photoshoot (yes, this is the one I’ve been planning on sharing with you for MONTHS now!) LOL.
When Justin gets home from work around 5 we plan on taking Leo out trick or treating in our neighborhood and then we will rush back home to handy out candy!! I’m soooo excited about this because it’ll be our first Halloween in our new home and it’s so fun being able to meet all of the little kids of the neighborhood and check out their costumes!!
What are you guys doing for Halloween??? Make sure to share your plans below, I want to know what everyone is up to!!
Oh, speaking of costumes … you guys … lol … I had SUCH a hard time figuring out our costumes this year BUT I managed to come up with a couple ideas … stay tuned for our costume blog coming up NEXT!!
