Here we are, at the end of September and, honestly, I can’t believe how quickly it has has gone by! With October in sight, it’s time to share with you how I’ve decorated our home for Halloween. Each year I add more and more, and was extremely thankful to return to antique malls on the hunt for fresh vintage finds, but I also splurged on a couple of items on Ebay (including two blow mold Jack O’lanterns I’ve been wanting for years) and I found a few things on Etsy too.
This year I started buying vintage Halloween paper plates. I’ve always admired them, but this year decided the shelves of the secretary needed something, and since it’s in the dining room thought paper plates would be rather fitting. Much like mini trick or treat bags, vintage paper plates are still relatively inexpensive, and when displayed just right they create a big impact for little dough. While I found a handful at antique malls, I also purchased multiple from this Etsy shop. I also added vintage Halloween costumes to the mix, something I’ve wanted to do for awhile now. I was thrilled to find a pirate and skeleton at a local antique mall, and a Little Red Riding Hood one on Etsy.
Halloween has sneaked into the kitchen, guest bathroom, and even our bedroom over the last couple years. It’s nice having it be so festive throughout the house. Also for the first year ever we’ve decorated outside. I think there are still some finishing touches to work on, before I consider sharing it on the blog.
