Hello Halloween

It's a good thing I still have children around here who want me to decorate for Halloween, otherwise, those boxes under the stairs might never see the light of day.
Here is my version of a Halloween centerpiece. I combined two ideas from my Pinterest Halloween board.
At first Travis was disgusted that I nestled perfectly good candy next to flower stems. When I explained that the flowers were in a vase within a vase, he eagerly reached in and stole a few. Over the past couple of days the top layer has gradually disappeared. I've replenished it a time or two.
Our entryway is the same as last year. I'm glad I took of picture of it so it could be replicated. It's too hard to be creative every year. I did find a free printable (here) which I printed and hung on the wall.

Hello Halloween!

You are good at decorating for the season. Me, not so good....I love your old window. I have an old window I hung above my bed. I like the wreath idea hanging from it....hmmm.

Super cute! I've gotten so lazy. I never decorate for anything except Christmas now. :( I really should for my kids' sake.

Darling decorations!

I am guilty of only getting a few down since hubby and I became empty-nesters. And I probably wouldn't even do that if it weren't for trick-or-treaters!

That darn candy always seems to disappear! Ha Ha
I love the centerpiece you made - very very cute, especially with the ghost peeps in the middle! (I have a daughter who would dig those out and eat them - they are her fave!).

All your decor is very chic - Love it!

Darling ideas, Julie! I don't have "halloween" decor items, just "FALL" stuff. You're making me re-think my ways though! Way cute!

I can't wait to see what you did with your Velvet Pumpkins. I've been collecting them for a couple of years now and use them year round for displaying my jewelry. Easy access and too pretty to pack away after the Season has passed.

I really like your sense of style -- this is just what I would do. Very classy.

It looks great, as usual! Will you come and finish up my girls' room so I can move on to the nursery? Or you can just do the nursery while you're here as well...

Cute decorations! If I put out the cute candy with flowers. The flowers would be sitting on the table next to an empty jar. LOL!!!!
