Isn't it so much fun decorating for Halloween? Every year I try to do something different with the same old stuff.
This year my Halloween mantle was inspired by nature.
The branches landed in the lot next door after a storm a few weeks ago. As soon as I saw them I knew I would be using them for this.
I used spanish moss and bittersweet layered on top of Christmas lights for a little nighttime drama.
The black crows, spooky cloths and the orange paper came from the dollar store.
I found these cool graphics at one of my favorite blog spots, The Graphics Fairy.
If your not already addicted to her blog, you will be now.
The kids get so excited about Halloween decorations.
I try to keep it somewhat friendly while they are still little.
They each have their own favorite decoration that they look forward to.
Does any one else find it challenging to balance tradition with keeping things current & exciting?
Keeping that in mind, some things must always be the same.
Thanks for visiting.
Moving on to the dining room...
