It's almost Halloween! I love decorating for holidays and I feel like Halloween is the beginning of a lot of fun holiday decorating at the house. I actually pulled out all of my things over fall break so that we could enjoy them as long as possible. After I got it all up I just kept looking around and thinking to myself how happy pumpkins make me!
Outside I have my Trick or Treat garden flag as you walk up to the front steps and I added some black and white gingham ribbon and a few others to the flag stand.
Next are my front door burlap pumpkins that I made a few years ago. You can find details HERE and specific directions for this kind of door hanger HERE.
For Halloween I have trick-or-treat and black/white gingham ribbon tied to them and then after Halloween I change the ribbon so I can keep the pumpkins up through Thanksgiving.
We haven't had a chance to visit a pumpkin patch yet, so we don't have any real pumpkins at the house yet so I feel the porch isn't quite done yet. We do have one lone little baby pumpkin that Boo-Boo brought home from his preschool field trip to a pumpkin patch, though and he is very proud of it!
I love easy seasonal changes with pillows added to the chairs on the front porch. Such a simple way to add some holiday color to the porch!
Inside I like to add little touches here and there to my regular decor. In the foyer I added a few pumpkins for my entry table and some more gingham ribbon to the lamps.
I also have a picture of my favorite themed Halloween costumes the kids wore a few years ago.
On the other side of the foyer is the antique wash stand I pained with chalk paint several months ago and to that I replaced some candles with some fabric pumpkins I made many years ago.
The kitchen holds a few other details like my chalkboard that got a new Halloween design.
This antique dough bowl belonged to my grandmother and it gets filled with some pumpkins!
In the keeping room area I have some adorable burlap banners hanging that I scored at the Target Dollar Spot last year.
Those cute little trick-or-treat pillows also came from the Dollar Spot at Target.
For the kids I keep all of our Halloween books in a basket that makes it easy for grabbing.
And even the playroom gets a few touches including these light up branches with Halloween ornaments the kids made with my mother-in-law a few years ago and their cute little ghost footprints there in the background.
That is about it! Hope y'all enjoyed my fall home tour. So curious...do you love decorating for holidays? Is your house bursting with pumpkins like mine? :-)
