Better late than never right?! I cant believe how fast Halloween has snuck up on me this year! We have our first Halloween party on Friday and I just realized i don’t even have a costume for Ridge yet! Hopefully this isn’t an indication of how the rest of this holiday season is going to go.
I had fun decorating my family/dining room for Halloween this year. I tried to stick with mostly neutral colors with a vintage vibe. I changed out my botanical prints for these fun vintage prints put together by Ella Claire. I love the playful touch they add.
I was so happy to finally have shelves to decorate! Styling shelves is always a process for me. I have to put stuff up and see how i feel about it for a day or two then tweak things. I recently bought this three tiered shelf from Rod Works in Gilbert, AZ. It is the perfect depth for this dining room. I added some spooky bats to the hallway along with pumpkins of course!
Last year was the first year I decorated for Halloween, and to my surprise… my kids endlessly praised my coolness. So decorating for little holidays, such as Halloween became a MUST in my book. For the children right? Okay, it is a little for me too.
I am not much unto the spooky, but I can do cute and fun which is what I try to do each year. Cat burglars, ghosts, bats, and a skull with a spider for good measure that about sums up Halloween at our home. What do you think? I know lots of people don’t “do” Halloween but its fun to do a little bit here and there each year.
Most of my seasonal fun decor comes from my local Homegoods! The prices, the selection… its great! I grabbed the florals, spider webs, and pumpkins at Michaels and Joanns… I keep it simple, keep it inexpensive, and keep it fun!
In other news, I was a little shell shocked when I walked into Homegoods today for an afternoon stroll and found Christmas decor on their shelves. Though if invited to that bandwagon I could potentially hop on… I love the festive jingle bells more than I love a spooky skull.
After taking a break from craft nights last year, Jenna and I were itching to host another one! We loved crafting and visiting with everyone that came! This year we added a raffle to the craft night and it was a blast! We had some AMAZING donations including a shop credit to Lularoe by Kendyl Hawkins, a print from Print it Engineer, a cutout from Lolly Letters, a makeup session with Erin Pace Makeup, and of course one of our favorite new HATS!
We had the MOST delicious cupcakes from Cupcake Love AZ. I am a bit of a cupcake snob connoisseur and these were to die for! We had lemon, orange, almond, chocolate almond, chocolate, and red velvet. They also make gorgeous cake and cookies. So yummy!
We love hosting these crafts nights. They take A LOT of prep work but always end up being so much fun. We love being able to create an opportunity for women to come together, catch up, make new friends, and leave with something fun and unique for their homes.
Every year I have the Halloween or Fall decor dilemma. This year Halloween won out after I found these oh so cute printables from Ella Claire. These prints set the tone for my neutral, vintage, and simple Halloween decor! I snapped a few pictures of my front room before it was destroyed from the craft night we hosted. It’s still in disarray haha but it was totally worth the fun night!
I found the Double, Double Toil and Trouble print at the Caravan Shoppe. It came with 3 prints for $5! I just had an engineer print done at staples then stapled the print to poplar boards. It was a very easy project that makes quite a statement! Hope your enjoyed my front room all dressed up for Halloween!
