Happy Halloween…

My absolute favorite time of the year basically starts today!  Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays ever since I was a little kid!  One of my favorite memories growing up was a costume party we had and my dad wore a real carved pumpkin on his head the entire time, it was hilarious and everyone loved it!

Now that have a little one of my own who loves it just as much as I do it is so much fun to see her so excited!  Our whole family loves to dress up and she gets such a kick out of it!  Here are some of my favorite moments from the past weekend ❤

Clearly I love a theme while decorating, the great part is that most of these banners and extras can be saved year to year by simple putting them into a ziplock back and they look great and save you a ton of money from repurchasing everything all over again!

So Spoooky…

I wanted to share this really easy fun craft that I did with the babe last week that would be great for kids of all ages.  I remember making these when I was a little kid lol so it’s definitely not a new idea, but she had a great time! IMG_3693 Our good friend Meg came over to hang out and she helped us make these spooky little ghosts, so here is what you will need

  • Any type of white trash bag
  • Styrofoam Balls
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Orange & Black String/Twine
  • Sharpie Marker

IMG_1014You may even have some of these items lying around from other crafts or just in your pantry!  We used our regular kitchen trash bags and cut them into various sized squares and just put the ball inside and tied a little bow to create the head.

Next step was to cut the pipe cleaners in half and stick them into the top of the head so that you can easily attach them to a tree, bush, or your mailbox!  The last step was to give them spooky little faces using the sharpie marker and your done!

IMG_1011 IMG_1008 Meg did a fab job tying all of their bow-ties!IMG_1006I think that they turned out super cute and the babe absolutely loves them!  You can make as many as you like and since they are made out of trash bags they should last pretty well even if it rains!IMG_1001xo Meg

Fall Things…

So it’s no surprise that I love fall and I think many of you can agree!  The weather is perfect still somewhat warm during the day and cooler at night!  I also love all of the festive holidays that are coming up especially Halloween!  I think that it’s so much fun to decorate and get ready for fall so I just wanted to share how we decorate our front porch and some other little tidbits from around our house for fall!

IMG_3445I absolutely love flowers, it doesn’t matter what they are I think they are all beautiful and I love having them all around our house!  The great thing about mums are not only do they provide a great pop of color, but they come back every year which will save you money if you plant them in your gardens!

IMG_0879 IMG_3435 I am in love with these silver lanterns that I scored on sale at Target for $10.00 each!! I have been searching everywhere for these for at least a year now and was so happy to score them on sale! Pieces like this are great because they are so versatile and can be used year round inside, or outside!IMG_3418 IMG_3433The pumpkins are from our local farm stand all hand-picked by the babe!
IMG_0882 IMG_3439 IMG_3442 IMG_3454 IMG_3368 IMG_3396Something else that I love to do is save all of the holiday cards we receive and actually put them into picture frames.  You get to utilize frames you already have around your house and put to use those adorable cards that can be pretty pricey and are way too pretty to throw away!

I hope you enjoyed seeing a peek around our house for fall and I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather!!
