It's beginning to look like... Halloween!

Friday, October 11, 2013

Happy Friday friends :) I'm linking up again with Christina, Darci, April and Natasha for some fall festiveness today!

I've shared some Fall decor here and here, but since September flew by so quickly, I never really got a chance to share the rest! Now that its October, I'm in the process of bringing out the Halloween decor. To be honest, I've never really decorated with all of the creepy decor like witches, skeletons, and such, but this year I'm making at attempt at it as long as I can keep it cheap. That is where the Dollar Store came in handy.

We're in the process of making some DIY tombstones with leftover plywood (Steve's idea) and putting lights up on the tree outside, so I'll share that with you as soon as its ready! Until then, here are my favorite areas of the house looking all festive and such!

One: Front Porch

DIY Wreath
We're headed off to the pumpkin patch this weekend so I'll have a few more pumpkins to use outside (and carve!). And yes, I have almost killed the mums you see in that picture. I thought about buying another bigger version but whats the point when I just kill all of the plants anyway?

Two: Entryway

Birds and netting from Dollar Store. Subway Art printable here. Pillow.




Three: Chalkboard


Sometimes I think I'm getting good at free-handing these signs, but I think I may redo the "treat" part!

Four: Fireplace Mantel, Halloween-style

Halloween garland.


Five: Even Ruby has her momma's festive gene!

Just kidding, she hates this placemat. She actually makes a point to grab her food from her bowl, set it down on the floor next to the placemat, and then she eats it. ha!

I've seen a TON of awesome Halloween and Fall decor at TJ Maxx and Hobby Lobby this year, but I've been fighting the urge to buy any of it because I like getting it all on super sale after the holiday. Maybe I'll invest in more creepy Halloween decor then... or just save it up for Christmas stuff (which is already out in full force in the stores.. and I think I'm excited about it). I can't wait to deck these halls! Fa-la-la-la-la..... :)

Tonight its date night with the hubs and Hocus Pocus time! I'm pretty excited to eat some of Target's Halloween marshmallows and drink my pumpkin beer. Anyone else have any fall-related plans this weekend?

  3. love the mat for her bowls! I should do the same for Emma- she's in this phase where she likes to get a mouthful, spit it out on the floor NEXT to the bowl and then eat it... She's special haha Have a great weekend!
