Halloween is my favorite holiday. What started with a light-up pumpkin and paper skeleton has become five room decorations.
The mantel has a sparkly black spiderweb cloth, topped with timed color-changing candles and a vase filled with lit sticks and berries. The dining room table holds a black lace runner with a black glass pumpkin in the middle (and this year two bat candlesticks holding black timed candles). The piano has a purple spiderweb cloth and a stack of books with a raven on top. The stairs have mini Jack o’lanterns, a stuffed black cat and more timed candles.
It feels very festive to me.
And next up is the outside…the floating ghosts, spider egg sacs and (if I can manage it) a yarn spiderweb with two oversized spiders on it. And let’s not forget the smoking caldron.
After all, if I scare away the kids, I get to keep more of the candy, right?
