We don’t have a fire place mantel but we do have a hall table that is like a mantel and gets decorated lol. Most of the time it’s the photos and wall that get treatments but I like adding little things to make the space stand out. I did up the table the other night to get into the swing of Halloween.
I don’t like Halloween for the scary movies but more for the trick or treats and getting dressed up. It’s fun seeing the kids coming asking for treats. The kids get a kick out of seeing everyone come to the door. We went door knocking last year, but this year Halloween falls on a Monday, so we may just watch the kids come round. I ended up moving the “BOO” wreath inside because we had some bad wind and I didn’t want it to blow away.
The bats are back! I love these bats they are just cut from a template on card stock and they have really lasted. Last year I had them outside the front of the house and they looked really good. I’m planning on hanging bats from the ceiling above the front door this year that the kids will have to walk through, it just may scare us a bit at night lol. I haven’t added any new decorations this year but I plan to before Halloween is over.
The string lights are from Target (last years stock) and the candles are from Dusk. I can’t want to see what collection they have this year.
What are some of your favorite Halloween decorations? Leave me a comment below.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
