Take A Moment To Enjoy Halloween With Your Family

 

q

Last weekend I decided it was time to start decorating for Halloween.  I’m not overly fond of Halloween but I love decorating for Fall.  Sadly, this year I wasn’t able to find a Fall theme this year, so I caved and Quinn and I decided to decorate for Halloween.

 

First I started with our traditional Window Gel Decorations.  While friends have told me these are cheezy, that they’re so tacky, etc. Our family has made a tradition of decorating our dining room slider.  I find it fun to the the naysayers I say….. If they are so cheezy and tacky why is there such a great selection of them in the stores?

Next, my grandmother’s buffet.  My grandmother passed her dining room furniture down to me and I love decorating it.  It reminds me of her and my grandfather and all the happy times we had with them as children.  While I hate candy corn it makes for a beautiful and cheap decoration.  I gathered a variety of sugar candies and used them in my glass urns for a pop of color and holiday flair.

Snooping around the dollar store I found a black boa and some black roses with little glittery spiders.  I put the boa in my little bird atrium and used a few black roses & spiders here and there to add a little more pizzazz.

The fun I had with my son?  Priceless!

    Halloween is always a fun, family time. When my son was younger, we all went trick or treating together. Now, he’s older, it is a night of horror movies and plenty of yummy snacks! 🙂

    I like the idea of using candy corn for decorating. I’m not a big fan of eating them.
