Just In Time for October

Yes, I know I’m a bit early this year, but the chill in the air and the fact that the leaves on my Poplar tree always start falling before any others in the neighborhood are all my cue to get going with the Halloween decor. I mean folks, I even beat Target this year.

True, I like to hit up the Target aisles for one or two new additions each year to my Halloween box of goodies, but this year since they were so late getting everything out I hit up Homegoods and The Dollar Store. Just as well – it’s all cute.

And now for the annual Halloween mantel. You can check out past mantels here, hereĀ  and here – but I think this is my most favorite Halloween mantel ever! I think maybe because I finally have three boxes of decor to choose from and clearly still adding each year (see above).

I found the fun Haunted House sign at Homegoods and the spiderweb at The Dollar Store. Everything else is from past years or pulled from other areas of the house because they look Halloweenie – is that a word? I got the sticks from the yard. Score.

And just because I couldn’t stop there…I taped another cute cut-out I picked up at The Dollar Store onto the mirror at the bottom of the stairs (also see black, white and orange new phone case I picked up to celebrate the season).

And the Halloween wreath I made last year that I never shared!
So there you are – get into the spirit. October is upon us. Spooky times they are a coming.

    This turned out fabulous! I follow homegoods on Instagram and saw your picture that they put up. I just had to check it out. Decorating for Halloween with style always feels like a challenge but you make it look so good! Happy I stopped by =)

    I just love y’alls Halloween decorations, especially the admission ticket to the haunted house! They just opened a Dollar Tree close to our house, so I’m excited to pick up some filler items there this year. Can’t wait to see more of your decoration!
