Your entryway is the first impression of your fall and Halloween spirit. Create an enchanting or spooky atmosphere.  Use fall leaves, pumpkins, or drape fake cobwebs, adding eerie tombstones, and placing skeletons or life-sized witches to greet your visitors.

This window frame that I have hanging in my small covered courtyard is the perfect anchor to seasonal decorating.  Adding elegant fall leaves in perfect for September or before Thanksgiving.  It would look so cute with a spider web and spiders. or black netting and bats.   

Mystical Mantel

Transform your fireplace mantel into an elegant fall display or a bewitching focal point. Incorporate black candles, potion bottles, witch hats, and eerie artwork. 

Black candles and candlesticks are a spooky and elegant in one.  They're so pretty you can have them displayed all year.  

I found iron candlesticks like the ones I have.  The flameless candles are so nice to have on hand.  These ones are wax so they look and feel like candles.  I love my iron candlesticks and flameless wax candles on my mantel for the holidays.  

Did you know you can find all kinds of screensavers for your tv on youtube?  This was mind blowing to me but makes decorating for all kinds of easy and fun.

Pumpkins Inside and Out

I love decorating with decor that will take you from one holiday to the next.  Decorative pumpkins are a great staple from September to December.  They look so good inside and outside.  Closer to Halloween you can spooky them up with netting and spiders or keep them elegant and classy.
