Halloween Home Tour 2016

October 17, 2016

I love, love, love Halloween!  I just think it is so much fun and it’s a chance for everyone to be a kid again!  My boys have really gotten into the Halloween spirit too, so that makes it even more fun to decorate and construct costumes.  Speaking of costumes, we have been hard at work making them so hopefully I will have another post soon with details!  Both boys really like to help me decorate.  I am a bit of a perfectionist, so after becoming a parent, I have had to learn to let some things go.  It’s not the placement of the pumpkins that matters, it’s the joy on their faces when they are the ones who get to decorate.  At least that’s what I keep telling myself.  It’s hard though.  Sometimes I just really want to rearrange things!  Any who, here’s a quick tour of our home this year!  Happy Halloween!

The fireplace in our living room got the bulk of the decor.  It’s a good focal point because you can see it from the entry way, kitchen, and dining room.

The top pumpkin to the far right was a fun project I did a few years ago.  I drilled holes into one of those fake pumpkins, then stuck orange lights through the holes.  It’s held up well and it’s a favorite of the boys each year.  Pay no attention to the spooky spray bottle to the left.  I must have set it there when I was cleaning and forgot about it.  I am easily distracted!

Just an eclectic collection of trinkets.

A few pictures of past halloweens, some potion bottles, a giant spider of course, and our scary hand bowl that grabs you if you try to sneak candy from it (another favorite!).

Some spooky ghouls and a Halloween napkin holder on the kitchen table.  This is the only season that we have napkins already at the table and I must say it’s quite handy!  I’m not sure why I don’t do this for more then 1 month out of the year.  Oh, and a skull wreath on the front door!

A skeleton mug and some tea lights under our TV.
Well, that’s it! Short and sweet.  Or should I say, short and spooky!  Thanks for taking the tour!
