I am a HUGE fan of Halloween. My three favorite holidays are Christmas, Easter, and Halloween, and honestly, I can’t put those in any particular order. For me, when it comes to Halloween decorations, I say the creepier, the better.
Our Halloween Decorations
Today I’ll take you on a short tour of our house. I used to go even more “all out” for Halloween than I do now, but I just don’t have the time or energy for it anymore. Here’s an example of the exterior of our house BEFORE kids came along. I made these creepy ghost girls, and it’s been so long now that I can’t even remember how I made them. The next year Raley was born, and the creepy ghost girls were never seen again.
For years I have made our flower bed into a mini graveyard. I got these tombstones several years ago in a big pack for like $15 at Walmart. I have definitely got my money’s worth out of these, and it’s probably time for a new set because they’ve been worn out over the years, but inflation has hit fake tombstones along with just about everything else in our economy, so I just can’t bring myself to buy more. They’re more expensive and there aren’t as many in a pack as there used to be.
Last year, I was walking through the Halloween decorations on clearance at Target and found a big inflatable Jack Skellington hiding in the back of one of the racks. I picked it up thinking it would be half off the retail price (originally $59.99), but much to my (pleasant) surprise, it was marked down to $5!! What?! I never find deals like this. I snatched this up so fast. My girls absolutely love it. Audrey asks multiple times a day to “check on the skeleton.” (HA!)
We have a small entry way table that I covered with “creepy cloth” and set out a few creepy Halloween decorations. I love this hologram of these vampire girls. They make me think of Katherine from The Vampire Diaries for some reason.
The only other place in the house that I decorate is the bar in our kitchen. I am obsessed with skulls, so you’ll find them scattered throughout this area. I found these mini, long stemmed pumpkins at Kroger and LOVE them. They’re so pretty.
Do you decorate for Halloween, or do you stick with general fall decor? Do you prefer creepy or cute Halloween decorations? What’s your favorite holiday?
