it’s the kick off to all the special holidays we and the boys love the most! As September rolls around fall and halloween decor start to make their appearance. With two littles, Halloween is the preferred choice and with the shorter shelf life I typically give in pretty early. When October gets here though, we finalize costumes, stock up on halloween candy and bake all things pumpkin.
For the most part I try to keep the decor pretty minimal with certain areas of the house that we focus on and then we do a ton of halloween crafts. To give the bats a bit of rest, I opted for the black matte butterflies and brought them to life in the main area of the house – the kitchen! With views from the living room and dining room it’s been a fun way to incorporate some spooky decor. They flutter from the corner and on to the pendant and really transforms the space. Also, these little butterflies are $12 for pack of 20. Score! We also have random skulls scattered throughout the house (the boys like bones!), small white pumpkins and painted branches and spiders.
Outside we keep it to a few skulls and black cats strategically placed for maximum impact – since our porch is tucked back you don’t really see the faux pumpkins. And with Florida heat, we wait til the last minute to snag our mums and pumpkins. It’s basically a constant month of decorating 🙂
Happy October, friends!
