I have to admit, I'm really not very big on doing seasonal/holiday decorations. I can't really say why, other than it adds additional clutter that I have to clean around.
I do try to do a little bit now that I have kids but it's pretty minimal. Christmas is probably the biggest holiday that I decorate for.
I did drag out some of my fall decor stuff yesterday. You'll notice that I just do general fall decorations, and nothing specific to Halloween. I'm one of those people that just.can't.get.into Halloween. I do put my kids in costumes, and we do the whole trick-or-treat thing but that's about it. You can BOO me now. I can take it...really.;)
I started with my dining table. Everything is on a tray again because I need to be able to get it out of the way for dinner and all that stuff. I really do like to keep with pretty natural decor in traditional fall colors. Even though over-the-top decorating is not my thing, I still enjoy the season and it's beauty, as is.
Next, I did a little decor on my entry table. Why not put what I have done where people can see it, and I get credit? Haha!
See that white pumpkin on the far right? It's a dollar store pumpkin that I spray painted heirloom white and added a stick stem and some spanish moss to. It only cost me $1 to buy it, and I had everything else around the house.
One more view. I admit, I love the little iron tree with pumpkins hanging from it that I bought (I think) about 3 years ago.
The last area I added fall stuff to is the centerpiece I put on my coffee table in the living room.
I did took some more dollar tree pumpkins and mod podged some book pages onto them (another $2 investment), and added more sticks and spanish moss. I've been in love with these since I saw them on Pinterest.
Here's the rest of the arrangement.
Just a bit of wheat and some gourds added into a big glass thingamajig from the thrift store. Perfect enough for me!
Well, that's about it. I may or may not do a banner and wreath for the front door. It just depends on what other things land on my to do list.
What I love most is that these decorations should last me through to Thanksgiving and the delivery of the 4th baby boy. Thank goodness!
