Every Girl Link-Up || Halloween Decor


It's time for another installment of the Every Girl Link-Up with Astleigh and me! Last month, we all posted about our fall decor and autumn touches. Today, we are tweaking that fall decor and sharing our homes decorated for Halloween!

Now as a disclaimer, Halloween is not my favorite holiday, so I don't like to spend much time and money on it. I am really picky about finding decor that isn't scary or grotesque-- think happy Jack-O-Lanterns and smiley ghosts-- so I have a hard time finding pieces that I like in the stores. But if I pick up one new thing every year, I'll eventually have a collection of cute Halloween items :)

You need to see Astleigh's Halloween decor! She has impeccable decorating taste!


Don't mind my half empty candy jar. My husband LOVES M&Ms, and no sooner had he eaten the majority of them, the fall-colored ones were sold out at my store. ;)


I made this Halloween bunting two years ago, and it's my favorite piece. Notice the cutesie ghost? I would decorate my whole house with him.



This part of the mantel is pretty much the same as it was for my fall decor-- light-up grapevine pumpkin, a divine "Apple Tree Picnic" candle, giant homegrown pumpkin, etc. The pretty print was made by HC Designs, and I will email you the free printable if you link up with me today!


Link up your post and leave your email in the comments if you would like one!




"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."-- Anne of Green Gables. The print I found here (it's also by HC Designs).


I have thought about decorating the walls with black-construction-paper bats, but ever since having bats as housemates, I can't do it! I know I would mistake them as real. My fear of bats is way too intense right now to play around with that :) I thought these straws from TJ Maxx were a better, milder idea.


Lastly, I just picked up this glittery "Trick or Treat" sign from Dollar Tree. It's on our front door. I thought it was really cute for only $1!

  1. Oh my goodness - the bats! That would totally freak me out, too. And I agree with ya, cute rather than spooky is the way to go for Halloween :)

  4. I love your Halloween decor! If anyone can pull off sweet and simple for Halloween, it is certainly you! I adore your touches (and your kind words about mine)! I'm also laughing a bit about your reasoning for not hanging paper bats in your home; I wouldn't do it either if I had the real deal sharing housing space with me!
