The amount of Halloween decor I’ve collected over the years is seriously getting out of control. Over the past several years, I’ve transitioned to doing more autumn and fall themed decor and less Halloween because it’s easy to fit in with my everyday decor and I can keep it up for a little longer after October is over if needed. I still LOVE breaking out a little bit of classic Halloween and/or spooky decor though and usually add it to just one or two spaces for late October in my house. For the last couple of years, I’ve added it to my existing porch decor for the last half of October and to greet trick or treaters (see last year’s Halloween porch here!). Last year I also did a haunted/spooky room in Alex’s office downstairs (you can find photos of that here).
This year I decked out our mudroom/laundry room for Halloween with some classic black and white decor. I mixed in a little bit of my spooky decor too and I think it turned out really fun and festive! My favorite part of the room are these cute bat pillows with the faux skeleton on the bench near our entry!
No matter how old I get, I will always love to incorporate some of these classic and fun Halloween elements into my decor each year. I’m so excited that next year I’ll get to share it all with John Woodford and actually have a bit of an excuse for going all out with the fun Halloween decor and activities!
