Oh Pinterest, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Pinterest has adjusted my Halloween perspective recently, especially in regard to Halloween decor. You don’t have to have crazy bats, jack-o-lanterns and Griswald-inspired decor all over your house. You can have tasteful decor that will last through the fall. Besides Pinterest, locally, I have seen great Halloween decorations at Urban Farmhouse Market and Cartwheels. They make Halloween decorations look more like home decor and less like a haunted house.
Let’s start with something small, like candles.
Now that you have mastered the little things, let’s move on to the big table, shall we?
I like the idea of a table setting that you can use for more than just Halloween. These examples can be used through Thanksgiving. (This gives you two months to figure out what you are doing for Christmas.)
Something for the kids’ table perhaps:
After you get your table done, time to start decorating the inside of your house.
Inside done. Now let’s look outside.
Lastly, here are some interesting ways to decorate your pumpkins. I’m not that crafty, but I could be inspired to craft some of these lovelies.
This should give us all something to aspire to. Nothing beats my decorations last year, which included an entirely dead front yard, real cobwebs on our door and two raccoon traps bolted on the roof to catch a pesky resident critter. Now that’s truly frightening, folks. Pinterest has nothing on me.
So many wonderful posts today in other SB sister cities! Pour another cup of coffee and enjoy!
