I broke my own rule, you know, the one that says you can't decorate for Halloween before October 1st. Well, that rule was broken because I was ready to kick off my favorite time of the year - Halloween through My Birthday (Jan 17th).
Here is what I did. Nothing over the top and I will add more Halloween outside once it does get a little closer to the actual holiday.
Front entry - I will change out the burlap to a Halloween one in a few weeks.
Front Door - maybe my favorite spot.
Pantry door. I have had that sign for close to 5 years and I finally have a door that is long enough to hang it on. Every year I have to get creative when hanging it, but this year easy.
Views from the sink counter, it was the perfect place for the candelabra and the spider candles.
The stone fireplace, the perfect place to hang spiders. I was pretty excited that I was able to have them crawl this year. The kids loved it, this morning. The wreath looks a little small, so I need to spray paint a vine wreath black and then lay the fabric wreath over it. I may add spider webbing once we get closer to Halloween.
Finally, my kitchen island. It's just a Dollar Tree cauldron with a Target Dollar section witch hat on top. I think the Boo came from the Target Dollar section too. It looks cute on the island and is something different this year.
I do have ghosts and other candles around the house and the kids love all of it. Watching them come down and see everything this morning was great. Mary actually yelled EEEK, when she saw the fireplace. Henry reminded her they are not real and she seemed relieved.
Decorating this new house, sure is fun and I look forward to adding on some more cool decorations once we get a little closer to Halloween. I know I broke the rules and should have just gone all out, but I didn't want the new neighbors to think I was too crazy. I will leave that for Christmas.
it's official, i have issues!
