Happy Spooky Season friends!
I know it’s a little late in the season but I just had to share our Halloween decor for this year! It’s our first year in this rental and so it took us a little longer than normal to get everything up and ready for scares!
I’ve mentioned on my Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party Guide Post, I don’t really do scary Halloween; I am more of a cute halloween decor fan. Phillip, of course, loves Halloween Horror Nights and scare flicks but he was on board with my “kawaii” decor this year. Win for me! (Must have been that throat punch when he tried to scare me by hiding in the closet…)
With all this Halloween decor, I will tell you right now- 99% of it is spray painted! One thing I’ve learned from my decorating genius of a mother-in-law, spray paint fixes everything…or can give it new life. Pretty much the same thing, right? Everything in department stores seemed to be orange and black and I was just not feeling that this year. So spray paint it is!!
I spray painted all these little dollar spot Target pumpkins, the wood sign and candle holders in this “lilac” and “ocean mist” Rustoleum color and love the pastel spooky vibes that resulted! It made for the perfect topper scene for our entertainment center.
The dining room was one of the only sections I didn’t spray paint anything; mostly because these velvet pumpkins from JoAnn’s were the perfect fall touch I was going for here. **ProTip: Home Goods has some of the best Halloween and seasonal goods ever! That’s where the “Boo” marble sign is from as well as my masquerade gold skull. Also, I didn’t know Home Goods existed until we moved to FL and let me tell you..that place is dangerous…to my wallet. We have a love/hate relationship.
Our normally “sunny” corner of our home (i.e. our record stand that’s covered with Sunshine State goodies) got a mystic manor overlay! I dragged out my ghoulish delights to make this Haunted Mansion set up. We love the Haunted Mansion at the Disney Parks and have picked up these little goodies in the parks as well as one of my favorite magical candle shops.
Without going overboard on my Halloween decor this year, a farmhouse, fall, chic look was just what I wanted. All my little pumpkins were from the Target dollar spot last year and the big glittery guys were; again, a Home Goods find! Add some black and white gingham and magnolia garland and you have a table even Johanna Gaines would be proud of.
Our front door decor had to house our favorite Halloween accessories, Mr. Bones and Fido. If you follow us over @alohaearsdesign, you know Mr. Bones’ story and why he, of course, gets special treatment every year. He’ a bit of a rascal and always up to no good.
That’s all for this year! So from us and Sia, our rose gold Skeleton; Happy Haunting’s friends!
