halloween decor

Joining another link up today to share my "Halloween Decor".  Technically I just have fall decor but Pearson and I did add a really cute Halloween banner today to our kitchen so I thought I would link up.  I'm more of a fall decor kinda gal because it lasts from September to Thanksgiving.  I feel like I can only have Halloween stuff up for the month of October.  It makes more sense to me to just do fall.  So here is the little fall decor that I have……….

My mantel is still a work in progress.  I think I might eventually hang the big piece and the shutters up a little higher, but for now they are all just leaning.  One of the shutters needs a little repairing and I would love to paint them a different color other than black, but I can't make up my mind on what I want.  For fall, I just added some fall leaves and a cute little banner that I made at MOPS last year.  
 The black part is chalk paint, so I can wash off the words off and change them out if I want to!
 Behind our couch I changed out some candles for pumpkins, filled the vase with fall smelling potpourri, and added a little scarecrow and pumpkin to the table.  
 My Mom loaned me this plate and I absolutely love it. I should have gone to Hobby Lobby and gotten some more fallish ribbon, but the cream worked just fine.  I love that you can erase the words and write whatever you want with a dry erase marker.  My little glass pumpkins are from Celebrate Home.  
 This is my favorite little spot this year.  The pumpkin was a new purchase this year from a store here in Tyler called Gordman's.  The picture of Pearson is my all time favorite Halloween picture from his first Halloween as a little lion.  The candle is a Tyler Candle.  It's pumpkin spice and it smells amazing.  Our little pumpkin is always filled with Candy Corn or Peanut Butter M&M's……neither of which last very long around here.  
 These little scarecrows are new to my collection too.  My Mother in Law gave them to me for my birthday!!
 Pearson and I always spend an hour together from 1-2.  Nash goes down for his nap at 1pm and Pearson goes down at 2pm.  Today during our time together we worked on this little Halloween craft! I just love how it turned out.  We will definitely be saving it and hanging it up each year.  I got the little kit at JoAnne's for $4!!
Hope you enjoyed a little peek into my new house to see all of our fall decor.  Hopefully by January I can have some rooms fully decorated so I can start a Home Tour Tuesday Series of this home!!

Thanks for stopping by!

I just moved into a new apartment and have recently been OBSESSED with home decor. So yes, I loved seeing this. Well done!
