Halloween Around Home.

Happy Monday everyone! It was yet another beautiful Fall weekend here on the island. I spent Saturday
afternoon in the western part of the island with a client (whose living room is coming along beautifully!) and stayed close to home the rest of the weekend. Yesterday, we made homemade soup and biscuits which was perfect for a Fall day. You know what that means - lots of leftovers for today. Yum:)

I'm not a big holiday decorator, other than Christmas of course! But I decided to share a few simple Halloween vignettes around my home with you today.

A black feather wreath adorns the front door with a black satin ribbon. This literally took 2 minutes to make. I just wrapped two feather boas from the Dollarama around a wreath form.

A tiny cake stand in the kitchen is home to a white pumpkin. 
Anyone else have the problem with their pumpkins rotting in these? 
No big deal but I am constantly checking it for fuzz.. :)

A few more simple arrangements....

And last, my mantel. Stephane is a lover of Halloween. Me, not so much. I thought I'd be nice and make the attempt at spooking things up a bit here. It turned out kinda cool but unfortunately doesn't photograph very well so you're just getting a peek. 

The best part about it was that he actually took an interest and helped out which was fun! 
The EEK letters were from Walmart and I spray painted them black. We added an extra feather boa and a mask to the mirror and threw up some cobwebs. Add some white pumpkins from my Fall mantel and voila! It's supposed to have a glamour Halloween feel:)

Have a super week everyone and have fun getting those costumes ready! 


  1. Wow really festive! looks great!

  2. I adore little touches of the Holiday! Great job!

  3. Love the feather boa idea! What is dollarama? Like the Dollar Tree? Everything looks great! I don't really like decorating for halloween... so I wrap fall and thanksgiving into one!

    Have a great week!


  4. I managed to escape the Halloween decorating this year because we're moving this week. It seems like too much work for such a short season but you have done a brilliant job of incorporating it without going overboard. Really nice!

  5. Love your decor! I'm not a huge fan of decorating for Halloween either, but I think that you've done a great job with your decor!

  6. Wow - well done!I agree that I'm not much of a halloween decorator except for a jack o lantern the night of :) But your boa-wreath is genius!! I am loving that. PS - my gourds / mini pumpkins are getting a bit spotty...I guess it just happens, but I find it happens quicker in vases.

  7. How I wish we celebrated Thanksgiving in New Zealand - all these beautiful pictures in the blogosphere make me very jealous.

  8. You should try putting a little packet of silica gel (from a shoe box or purse purchase) in there and see if it takes some of the moisture out. I love that feather wreath - and the color of your front door!

  9. Hi follower here. Loved the boa wreath. Looking forward to seeing your christmas decor!

  10. Hi! Visiting from Hodge Podge and have to tell you that I ADORE your green door!!
