Decorating for holidays is one of my favorite hobbies. I feel like it gives you something extra special to look forward to during the end of the year holiday season and I also feel like we’re creating special memories for our girls along the way. My husband tends to decorate mainly on the outside of the home – while I take care of the inside.
This year, since it is our first year in the new house there is a lot of learning what decorations work where, and what decorations won’t work at this house. It’s interesting with as many times as we’ve moved, I’ve managed to repurpose a vast majority of our furnishings and decor items, however there are always those few pieces that used to fit perfectly in the old house – and then they just no longer work in the new space.
I spent some time decorating and shared it in a day in the life style video:
The main area that I’m focusing on decorating for this Fall is the great room area. This is a gathering space for the entire family and a space that we spend the most time in. (Plus you can see it from the kitchen which is a bonus.) In future years, I might do more decor in the bedrooms and additional room spaces, but for this year I’ve mainly kept it to the great room, kitchen, and dining areas.
My favorite piece to decorate is the sofa table that I’ve traditionally kept behind the loveseat, but at this house is behind the regular couch. (Due to the dimensions of the room.) I always put out a fun Halloween vignette for the month of October.
In other areas of the house, the tones are more subdued.
I especially am still loving the Rae Dunn cabinet area, that has really come together. I added a few pumpkin items and put my traditional Halloween decor on the Kirkland’s galvanized shelving that is sitting next to it, and I don’t feel like the room needs much more.
In the kitchen, I have a few Scentsy warmers, a large double pumpkin warmer and a plugin Haunted House warmer. I’ve also added in some Halloween tea towels, and a seasonal potholder set.
You’ll noticed this is a scaled down version of what I normally do, but the season is still young and I have a feeling there may be some time to put out some more! How much do you decorate for Halloween? Do you stick to one space, or do you like to decorate more of the house?
