It's Halloween 'at home'



October brings a glimpse of Fall . . . and Hallow's Eve to our home.

I'm a traditionalist . . . Orange & black remind me of the fun festivities related to Halloween, so these colors find their way into my decor around this time of year.

I think it's fun to glam up Halloween decor with black feathers and velvet, a little glitter, pewter, and blue pumpkins.



I bought these beautiful pewter pieces while on our recent trip to Colorado. Notice the delicate details on the rims and handles. I'm in love!











I added these glitter skulls to our dining room table for a Halloween inspired dinner we recently hosted for a few friends.  





I discovered gold nugget squash this year, and it's found its way into almost every room in our home.







A simple BOO garland made of washed linen and black felt is another one of my favorites.




I found this hand-painted Folk Art pumpkin several years ago . . . and he finds a special place in my Halloween decor every year. Don't you love his feather collar!?!


 



I think white pumpkins are magical. I paired them this year with these hand-painted folk art faux candy corns. 




I have several Fall wreaths, but this one makes my heart pitter-patter with its fiery orange and red hues. 

Instead of hanging it on my front door this year, I hung it on my black chalkboard. 

It's quite stunning when the afternoon sun shines on it against the black backdrop. 




I'm so happy you came by for a glimpse at a few of my favorite Halloween vignettes.

Please come back again later this week to see the simple & sweet Halloween touches that I add just for my kids.




LET'S STAY in touch!

  2. The black feather collar on your folk art pumpkin is the cutest thing. I love whimsey when I decorate for the holidays. The pewter is gorgeous, especially when it is contrasted with the black and creamy color tablecloth(is that linen?). The pattern is so graphic. I love it. Have a wonderful evening.....Candy
