Trick or Treat

I hope you all have a great Halloween!  We had a great time at our party last weekend.

Bet all my friends didn’t know I’d put them on my blog, LOL.  For several years in a row we have hosted a Dead Celebrity party for Halloween.  With all the moving we did a few years ago we stopped for a while but this year was great time to host again.  It is always fun to see what everyone comes dressed as.  We had several repeats this year which was funny!

Floral Arrangements

My friend Renee over at The Refined Relic wrote the best post yesterday in her Why I Love it Wednesdays Series on Foraging for Florals.  I was inspired.  I walk around our neighborhood everyday and as you know we developed this neighborhood and it is currently only half built so there’s lots of raw land.  This Fall I have really enjoyed seeing new things bloom, lots of yellow, reds, purples and white.  Also, I noticed over the Summer we have a rash of ferns growing in one spot, they are now turning a nice Autumn color.  Anyway, Renee’s post really spoke to me…why not pick some of these beauty’s and enjoy. 
Today I did!  I stopped by Trader Joes for almond milk and was pleasantly surprised that they had their pumpkin trees back.  That was enough to decide today was the day to pick some weeds.  I love these pumpkin trees, such oddities!  They are awkward and hard to arrange but with my added “weeds” they look awesome.

I added a few  ferns and some tall grass that looks like fireworks!  It was just the right accent for the funky pumpkin tree.

Halloween Decorating

You all know I love Halloween and I go a bit overboard with the décor!  I wanted to share a few pictures of the inside of the house all decked out in black and orange.
Our living room mantle looks very similar to last year but I just love that bunting.  I try not to go crazy in the living room since I have so much color in there already.  I enjoyed having an extra cabinet to work with this year, it was fun to fill.

I picked up this “31” at Homegoods this season and was super excited to have a new Halloween picture.  I had fun spray painting dried hydrangeas for a eerie look.

The other area of the house that I added Halloween décor to is the dining room.  I have so much fun seasonally decorating my china cabinet.

Fall Porch

Hey Guys!  I have been having so much fun decorating for Fall this year.  Most of my Fall decorating leans towards Halloween because I just love it!  I wanted to share my porch with you guys today.

These photos are a little shady if you know what I mean…We get so much afternoon light on the front of the house.
