We're Getting Ready for Halloween

I bought a few things this week to add to the slim pickins we had for Halloween decorations. Last night my 4 year old and I had fun bringing some fall into the house. We started with these cute teensy pumpkin branches we got from Costco...



We bought a big vase at Ikea to put them in...



At the grocery store we picked up several bags of mini pumpkins in every color they had. She stacked several in an oversized vase as a centerpiece for our dining room table...



We found this round place mat at Target to go under the vase...



When we were all done with that we strung up a Martha Stewart garland on the mantle over some dingy cheesecloth I had...



Really cute...the "blood" is sparkly...



When we got the banner we also grabbed some spiders to put on the mirror in the dining room...



I found this cloche behind a box of Cheezits so we put some pumpkins under it in the kitchen...



When Grace got tired of helping to decorate I had made it into my studio where I strung up two banners...



Added some white pumpkins to a tiny chair...



And stuck a few spiders on the mirror here too...



We were excited to decorate with all we'd collected in the past few weeks even though it's a bit early. By the time the 31st rolls around I'll probably be ready to pull everything down after we come in from trick or treating!!

Hi Lisa,

Looks like you and your little one had a lot of fun, and everything looks so good. I especially like all the creepy crawlies on the mirrors and walls.

Have a great week!

Hugs,
Meri
