Are you a big Halloween fan? I am not. At all. At least not when it comes to decor. The girls always have great costumes and loads of fun trick-or-treating with friends but I am honestly not big into decorating for any holiday other than Christmas. I don't do too much seasonal stuff around the house- maybe change out a throw blanket, a few pillows and a tablecloth but I'm not one to fill the house with twigs and fall leaves. Is that strange? Am I the only person you know who doesn't decorate for fall? Maybe I should start......
The usual Halloween shenanigans around here entail carving pumpkins the day before (In my defense--it's still usually so hot that our pumpkins are filled with fruit flies within a day-- they cave in on about day three) throwing around a few glittery, feathery decorations at the front door and hanging a few paper lanterns in the trees-- We live on a cul-de-sac that has only 6 houses and most of them are not home on Halloween so we don't get many trick or treaters so I sort of think, "who am I doing this for anyway??" Until this year when the girls started grumbling about it. Sooo, I have decided to cave and let them decorate. At first I thought I would just take them to Target and let them go to town with fake spider webs but alas, I just can't do it! So I've been trailing around pinterest (surprised??I know!!) looking for chic, beautiful Halloween inspiration.
I really wanted to do skeletons like this--
I think it's funny and sort of creepy at the same time-- and i thought the skeletons would look cute if we put some fabric flowers on them (because who doesn't love a flower brooch, right?) But someone poo-poo'd that idea....not mentioning any names, Olivia. ;) So it's now back to the drawing board-- I think maybe combining the bats from this
and the pumpkins from the image above might just do the trick....now to just figure out how to work in the fake spider web stuff that the girls are so obsessed with and we're good to go! What are your Halloween Decor plans??
