Decorating for Fall and Halloween - Orange, Black and White with Gold Accents
Fall is finally here - Let the Decorating Begin!
Normally at this time I'm all excited for Halloween, but I'm feeling a bit low key about it. I've only really decorated my mantle with Halloween decorations and kept the rest of the rooms simply Fall. This corner table is an example:
I love this mercury glass lamp I found at TJ Maxx last year. I decided to pair it with some gold accents - the picture frame (of my parents and I dressed up for the SCA) as well as a little pumpkin I found at Michaels a few months ago. So cute! I added some Antique books in gold and blue hues, tying the picture and pumpkin together - as well as some of our eclectic collection of pine cones/seeds from rare trees we've collected over the years. And a few fake leaves, because...well, just because. I'll put real leaves down when I find some good ones.
And then there is the Halloween mantle. Last year I went all black and white, but this year I wanted a touch of color so I used shades of orange, too. The skull is mercury glass (fake) from Target this year. Cool find!
Also, a crystal ball, mask, and some ravens. Can't have Halloween without ravens!!
This mask is another cool find at Target this year - so Antique cool looking, but great bargain! On top of black books, of course...
My 'Boo' and palm reading knick knacks...
And finally, another crow/raven on top of some more Antique black books.
Just a few tidbits from around my house. I love Fall decorating, but Christmas is coming soon - can't wait for the real decorating to begin!!
