Spooky Vignette

2011-10-20 002
I’m getting ready to host a couple Halloween Parties next week…it’s getting pretty spooky!  Like I said, I am not going all out like last year but I am adding a few fun focal points.  Here is one of my haunted vignettes.
I absolutely LOVE Gina’s mantel and it inspired my crooked shutters.  If you haven’t seen her mantel she said a couple weeks ago, head over to The Shabby Creek Cottage and check it out…you won’t be disappointed! 
Once I had my shutters up (which I just hung diagonally on a single nail) I draped my torn gauzy piece haphazardly down them.  Add in some roses with moss and webs, a few dollar store skulls,  and some mice trapped in a lantern.

To finish it up I stuck up my Martha Stewart bats and I was finished.   Now on to planning some food!  Are you hosting any parties this year?
Linking up!

Outdoor Halloween

 Last year I went all out for Halloween (which I love to do) but this year I toned it down a bit.  For my front porch I kept my Fall Wreath up and just added in little black crows from the dollar store to give a haunting feel.   I also brought out my Dead & Breakfast sign I made last year with help from BH&G.  You can find more details about it HERE.


My girls love to help with Halloween so will be adding in our pumpkins and maybe some ‘webs’.

It’s been crazy busy around here…all good stuff though!  I hope you are enjoying the wonderful season of Fall!

Quick {inexpensive} Halloween Touches

Are you feeling like you just decorated for fall and the thought of going all out for Halloween seems to much?  By simply adding in these dollar store black crows to my Fall Wreath, Mantel, and Centerpiece I have given my home a spooky Halloween flair.  You could use bats or spiders & simple webs as well. 
In no time at all my home went from fall to Halloween.  Then when October is over all you have to do is remove your creepy friends and your fall decor will take you right through the Thanksgiving season!
