This Halloween I decided to go for neutral decor. Not only does it reflect my current style, but it will also allow me transition easily to Thanksgiving by removing/adding very few pieces since a lot of what I already decorate with was left out. With three little ones who are consuming a lot of my spare time, this is definitely preferable!
It’s not your traditional Halloween collection – barely any orange to be found! – but I really like how it all turned out. It’s mostly limited to our kitchen and family room, since those are the main two rooms we spend most of our time in.
frame – removed from old painting // vase – Hobby Lobby // lantern – Walmart // frame – Target // white pumpkins – Michael’s // paper witch hat – Martha Stewart // wreath – Target // Happy Halloween & polkadot flag banner – Hobby Lobby // string of beads – Home Goods
Our fireplace is flanked by built-ins on either side, and they give me so much trouble! I don’t want to clutter them – which is really easy to do. I tried to balance out bigger items with smaller items to keep them as minimalistic as possible.
mini mummy bust – Dollar Tree // green plants – yard sale // frames – Homegoods // pumpkin – Target Dollar Spot // cardboard M – JoAnn’s Fabric // dual lantern – Homegoods
milkglass bowl – thrift store // horse head, gold box, vase – Homegoods // ‘Boo’ – Hobby Lobby // pumpkin – Homegoods // chalkboard – Hobby Lobby // chevron frame – Homegoods // lantern – Target // burlap frame – Walmart
Oh, look. There’s cute Mister Ben. Love that kid 😉
On the console table behind our couch is our collection of skeleton pieces. Literally. The guy in the middle is my absolutely favorite Halloween decoration.
Looking into the kitchen. Just some random bats flying around.
This collection of frames and window pane are to the right of our built-ins. The empty frames will soon be filled with our family pictures we’re getting taken next week.
It can’t possibly be Halloween without the delicious candy corn-peanuts combo. This little ghost was a hand-me-down from my mom when B and I were first married. He’s like 20-years-old. Pretty much vintage. The collection of pumpkins sit on our kitchen table on a gold foil placemat from Target and a burlap runner from Hobby Lobby (I think!). The white pumpkins are fake and from Hobby Lobby, and the mini pumpkins are real from Walmart.
Lastly, our wall chalkboard. It’s actually about 4-feet tall!
There you have it! Off to nurse a grumpy baby!
