One of the things I kept getting excited about when we bought our house, was the fact that I could decorate for all the holidays. Yes, I already did in our apartment but it was such a small space and I only had a small amount of decorations. Since Autumn and Halloween things have popped up in stores, I've been ogling over it all! Honestly, I haven't bought as much as I'd like. But I'm cheap and I know all the decorations will go on sale and clearance close to Halloween or right afterwards so my plan is to stock up then so I'm completely prepared for next year.
So currently the Autumn decorations are a little light for my taste in our house. But I still love the cozy atmosphere the few that we have out provide.
This glass pumpkin was picked up last year but I did buy these two Autumn-scented candles from Bath and Body Works recently to make our house smell amazing. They were by far my favourite scents in the store.
I just love this pumpkin! It's from Target and there's a matching, taller one that I need to pick up when it goes on sale!
During a visit to Michael's Craft Store, I bought a cheap Fall garland kit to thread and hang up. I'm not entirely sold on the blue leaves, but it's cute for $4. You can also see the Fall leaves wreath I made last year hanging up.
I came home with a pot of Mums during a shopping trip a couple weeks ago. I fell in love with the colour and so far they're doing great beside our front door.
I'll be adding some Halloween items over the next couple of weeks to get ready for handing candy out.
Do you decorate for the holidays?
