What is your Halloween decor style?
Do you go all out Haunted House….?
Do you settle for a simple Jack-O-Lantern or two?
I like to find a middle ground….that pretty much eliminates the “haunted” stuff.
Here is a round up of some simple decor ideas that have a Halloween feel with a bit of elegance and/or whimsy.
Display old and new photos of Halloween’s of the past!
I have so many fun photos of the Sweetwater kids in costume. It is simple to have prints made and then find a fun way to display them. I have framed them and clustered them around the house. This year the display is a simple “gallery” of the photos matted and mounted to the big chalkboard in the stairwell. There are some spaces left for some new photos I need to get printed….but I wanted to get the post done!
Get Your Pumpkins ON!
Simply placing these interesting pumpkins in odd spots through the house makes a Halloween statement with out SHOUTING! The thrift store is a wonderful source for interesting Halloween themed decor.
Keep those Real Pumpkins Looking Good!
This trick will keep your real pumpkins and gourds from getting rotten. If you follow this “recipe”, you may still have usable gourds at Thanksgiving!
Inject some Humor!
These little plaques are easy to make….but would also be simple to print and frame.

A trip to the craft store is the start of this craft project. These little books tucked on a shelf or set on a table are a subtle seasonal touch. TUTORIAL HERE

Have a Wonderful Day! It is gorgeous outside today….maybe a trip to a pumpkin patch is in order…oh wait…I seem to have ENOUGH pumpkins!
