Halloween has never been one of my preferred holidays. It might be from going out Trick or Treating as a child in the cold, rainy, gloomy autumn nights, shivering in my improvised costume with an old pillowcase to carry home my treats. Not that we got that many since we lived out in the country, but we would go out and knock on a few doors in our lakeside neighborhood, a few of my girlfriends and I, but we were always ready to run home through the misty darkness to the warmth and light of our own little houses. Or perhaps it is that I don’t like spiders, ghosts, witches, or cobwebs . . . or any of the other scary things that come with this particular time of the year. So we don’t actually do very much in recognition of Halloween . . . but we do like to decorate our home to celebrate the beauty of autumn, and pumpkins are so cheerful and happy, that we always have a few pretty pumpkins around our front door. So for this week’s Home Matters Linky Party #205 with the theme of Halloween ideas, I was looking for some new ideas for making our home festive for the whole month of October. #Halloween #HalloweenIdeas #HomeMattersParty
I love the bright colors of this time of year, especially combined with the black and white plaids and polka dots that I discovered, because they make such a bold statement of happiness at the changing of the seasons. The black and white striped rug, the polka dot pillows, the black and white plaid boots, and the cute black and white wreath just look so cheerful combined with orange and yellow pumpkins. The linen handmade pumpkins are such a soft color, along with the white mums and the ivory candles . . . it just says “Autumn is here!” and that is perfect for our little home and family. Here are the Halloween ideas that I found that I thought would work for our family – and if you aren’t a huge fan of all the goblins, ghosts, witches, spiders, and other creepy crawly things, you might find something here that inspires you as you think about getting your home ready for the autumn days of October.
