halloween decor 2010

At this very moment: I am curled up in bed with a nasty head cold. Not ideal timing. My baby turns two this Friday, I have hardly even started the costumes and there is lots of church stuff to attend/prepare for this week and weekend.

Last weekend was great though. I felt good and got much accomplished and I finally finished putting up the Halloween decorations. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for. I think it is because I love the color orange!

Many of the same elements from last year. (Side note: One of the things I love about blogging is having a record. I don't remember exactly what my house looked one year ago. I love being able to see the subtle changes from year to year. I wouldn't have that if it weren't for this blog!)

The mantle. My Halloween tree is now three years old. A lot of the branches have been broken in storage. This might be it's last year. :(

New this year: BATS! These would be so easy to make yourself but I went the lazy route this year and let Martha take care of the cutting for me. Isn't she a dear?

The bats lend just the right amount of creepy to the room.

The dining room got just a touch of Halloween too. My favorite part is the pom-pom and pipe cleaner spiders hanging in the windows.

Only 11 days until Halloween! Are you ready?

You have the most gorgeous house, Erin. Exactly my style. I had a mini heart attack when you mentioned there's only 11 days until Halloween. I haven't started making costumes either + I'm starting to stress!

Oh I just LOVE, did I say LOVE your home! So cozy but yet minimalist at the same time -exactly what I want!! I sent these pics to my husband who is remodeling our house! Thanks.

seeing this picture of your dining room reminded me that you never showed us your hutch remodel-- have you painted it yet?

Yikes-it all happens at once! Your house is gorgeous. Just the right amount of Halloween to make it look festive without infringing on your excellent style--I love it!

I hope you feel better--no fun!

Wow - I think I started reading your blog around Halloween last year. Time flies! Your house looks lovely as usual.

@Merathon- yes, I did paint it forever ago. I forgot that I haven't posted about that. Thanks for the reminder!!
