Hi, everyone! Happy First Week of October! 🙂 I’ve been so excited for the month to start because Halloween decorations have been up in the house since the beginning of September, but I thought I would wait to share so that the mood was a little more festive. Now that we’ve reached October, the time has come, and I have so many fun vignettes to show you!
The foyer is pretty large, so I’m breaking it up into two posts. The outside of the house has a few little Halloween touches that I love, too.
That spider is big and he’s furry! Sometimes he spooks me when I go outside at night. 😉
This is just a store-bought sign with a bit of zhushing. It was up on the door last year, and has been decked out with black tulle and ribbon. It’s a fun little Halloween welcome for guests, and the UPS delivery guy.
The foyer is long and on the narrow side, so the decorations live on the perimeter. I LOVE this idea that my mom-in-law came up with. The silver tray is one that we use all over the house for both holiday and year-round decorating, and its been elevated on an iron stand that complements the iron doors so well.
You can see here that it’s got some height! Compared to the other decor in this corner, it’s really nice in size. The gourds are huge!
The pumpkins and gourds are all from Trader Joe’s. They have been rubbed with a bleach solution since we read online that that helps un-carved pumpkins from rotting quickly. The antlers were a fun Sweet Salvage find, and I wrote about our experience there a couple of weeks ago! Adding in a few sprigs of leaves and some berries gives the whole vignette a nice, filled-out look.
These moss planters are here year-round (there’s another one on the other side of the bench), but I like that little velvety spider. He’s startled me a couple of times, too! Can you tell yet that I am sort of afraid of spiders?
Here’s the full view looking toward the front door. 🙂 It’s just such a happy room, with so much natural light and so pretty. The other side of the room is really fun, and I can’t wait to show you!
I hope you’re all having a great Monday!
