The Countdown Is On to Halloween!

There is just one week left until Halloween.

Are you ready?

We have our costumes, and our candy is prepared for the trick-or-treaters.  This week we are gearing up for a fun Halloween party for Little Man's friends.  I can hardly wait!  We have some fun games and treats in mind for these little friends.  Stay tuned for more details on that later this week!

This year, I have had tons of fun decorating our house inside and out for Halloween.  I am not a huge fan of the gory, gothic parts of Halloween.  I like the fun parts of the holiday!  This year, I have really been into black and white.  And also glitter.  And also sweets.  (That is pretty typical no matter what time of year!)


Here are just a few ways that Halloween has crept its way into our home:

I made these fun glittery B-O-O plaques to hang in my living room.  I love those blinged-out letters!

Our Halloween advent calendar has been getting plenty of good use!

Little Man won't let me forget that he needs a piece of candy every morning right after breakfast as we count down the days to Halloween.


I added some festive candy corn to my DIY mason jar apothecary jars.

I'm not even a huge candy corn fan, but lately I find them irresistible when they're just sitting there on my counter!

I "Halloweenized" my crepe paper rose wreath by adding some damask ribbon.

It looks lovely on my front door with my black and white pumpkins just outside on the porch.


But I didn't make all of my own Halloween decor.  I saw this adorable owl at Pottery Barn and had to have it!

We love lighting up this cute little guy every night.


Sparkly pumpkins have found their way all over my house.

I added some glittery pumpkins to my grapevine balls with some fabric leaves in a basket on our coffee table.

More glittery pumpkins!!  One sitting in a lantern.  Some more in my apothecary jar.  Also some natural red beans, corn kernels, and dried peas.  (I love when I can decorate using things I already have in my pantry!!)

What Halloween projects have you been working on?

How do you decorate for Halloween?

  1. Love all of your Halloween decorations!

  2. Ha ha ha! You wouldn’t know it was Halloween by looking around my house! I have a Halloween themed calendar on my desk, but other than that…zip, zero, nada. I am so lame I know! BUT, in my defense, all my decorations are stored at my in-laws, 2 hours away. Not worth the drive to go get them. 😉 Your decorations are so cute though. LOVE that advent calendar. How on earth do you get little man to eat breakfast first? No way would that be happening at my place.

  3. Great decor, Alison!! I’m really loving the Boo plaques and the pumpkin in the lantern. So fun!
