    Are you going to decorate for Halloween?

    Advertisements
    Is anyone planning on putting up Halloween decorations? What kind?? I need ideas

    I really want to do some fun decor this year but all I have so far are some mini pumpkins. I think I might want a wreathe for the door, and some silly window clings for the bedroom window. I can't easily put anything else in the window since the cats will tear it down. Once DH is back from training we are going to carve pumpkins together too!

    I have a mini pumpkin I fill with candy (he is a stuffed animal), I also have picture colored and modge podged. I also make cardboard witch hats and attached drawn black cats with hats to my walls.

    I already put my ghost door cover up but I need to get new hooks for my pumpkin lights outside. Then I have multi-colored light up pumpkins that will go on the front window sill. Still have to get some cob webs & spiders... maybe a few other things.

    I don't decorate inside though.

    I never do, but this year I'm having a mandatory fun day of carving pumpkins. I might also compulsively buy random Halloween related things, like I have a bowl of candy on my counter all year and right now it's in a bowl the previous owner forgot in the dishwasher but I saw a really cute black cat dish that I want to replace it.......Other than that I haven't decided...we don't get trick or treater's so it's only for my own amusement

    I wonder if I could get my real black cat to wear a witch hat

    I asked Dh if I could put fake webs on the patio and he was like "....its full of real spiders, why would you add fake ones?!" I wish I had a tree or something, but I only have grass.

    A cat bowl sounds cute! 2 years ago DH got a crap ton of trick or treaters and wasn't prepared so last year he got a ton of candy and didn't get a single one So I have no idea if we'll get any or not.

    I do 'fall' decorations because I'm lazy and don't want to take stuff down Nov.1 I like holiday decorations I can leave up for two months.
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    DH got them for me a few years ago. I love them so much but never got to use them since we've never decorated before. DH doesn't even carve pumpkins with me. He's such a buzz kill.

    I wonder if I can find some little ghost lights for my patio I bet they'd be cute. Are you going to carve some anyways? I can just imagine gavin liking the squishy seed goop, it seems like it's something kids like to play with
