HALLOWEEN: HALLOWEEN DECORATING

RECENTLY HAD SOME FUN DECORATING
FOR FALL/HALLOWEEN
AT A CLIENT'S HOUSE

WE USED WHAT SHE HAD FROM PREVIOUS YEARS
AND THEN WE ADDED A LITTLE MORE
TO CREATE A WHOLE NEW LOOK

IN THE KITCHEN
WE REPLACED A PLANT WITH THIS CHEERY PUMPKIN
AND A FEW AUTUMN LEAVES
ON THE KITCHEN ISLAND


THE ISLAND WAS THE PERFECT SPOT
TO SET UP THE WITCH'S POTIONS
SPOOKY POTION LABELS WILL BE ADDED
TO THESE GREAT BOTTLES
WE PLACED A CANDLE IN THE CAULDRON
FOR ADDED ATMOSPHERE
WE ADDED THIS BLACK OAKLEAF GARLAND FROM GRANDIN ROAD
LOVE IT!
IT REALLY ADDED SOME ATMOSPHERE
HERE OVER THE KITCHEN SINK

AND HERE AT THE KITCHEN TABLE
WITH CREEPY GAUZE FABRIC ADDED
ON THE KITCHEN TABLE
WE PLACED A CENTERPIECE OF PUMPKINS
REAL AND FAUX
WITH A BIG ORANGE PLAID BOW
THIS CAN STAY UP THROUGH TO THANKSGIVING
BY JUST REPLACING THE JACK O LANTERN

WE ADDED MORE OF THE BLACK OAKLEAF GARLAND
AND SPOOKY GAUZE CLOTH IN THE HALL
(AND SPIDERS!)

THE FAMILY ROOM BOOKCASE
LOOKS A LITTLE HAUNTED NOW

ON THE MANTLE WE USED
PUMPKIN GARLANDS FROM MICHAELS
COMBINED WITH TOMBSTONES AND
GAUZE FABRIC
(THE GARLAND CAN STAY FOR THANKSGIVING!)
IN THE DINING ROOM
A TALL BLACK URN HOLDS ICY BRANCHES
BEDECKED WITH GLITTERING HALLOWEEN ORNAMENTS,
SPIDERS AND BATS!
(I LOVE HOW PERFECTLY THE MIRROR FITS INTO THE HALLOWEEN
SCHEME OF THINGS IN THE BACKGROUND!)

IN THE DINING AREA
CHINESE LANTERNS AND BIG BLACK BOWS

AND CHAIRS WRAPPED IN BLACK
SET AN EERIE SCENE

AND CANDLES FOR ATMOSPHERE!
MY CLEVER CLIENT MADE THE SPIDERY WREATH FROM A
MARTHA STEWART TV EPISODE.
WE ADDED THE GRAPEVINE WREATH TO ENLARGE IT, 
AND HUNG IT OVER THE MIRROR WITH MORE
BLACK RIBBON 
AT THE FRONT DOOR
WE ADDED FALL LEAF GARLAND FROM GRANDIN ROAD
ITS WARM WELCOME WILL CONTINUE THROUGH
THANKSGIVING
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
