Halloween wrap up!

Happy Halloween everybody!
My mantel acquired a spooky mood
for Halloween
I started out with a fall look using some
of my elements already on the mantel
and then I added some spooky elements
for Halloween...

When I saw these sparkly pumpkins at
T.J.'s I decided to go with them for my
mantel since I tend to decorate a little
more formal I thought they would be easy
enough to incorporate.
 A few leaves and candles give it a more
festive look
When Halloween is over I'll remove the
skulls and raven and add a few
pieces for Thanksgiving
It looks great at night...
 My more playful side came out this year!
 Had fun with some old a new
The dining table has a little bit of
fall and Halloween decorating...
This runner (which I've owned for
at least 10 years) is pretty long
so I put it on an angle
It has these nice black tassels of which 
my cats found very interesting almost
immediately!  That was another reason
for the angle- keeping them from having
a field day with them while sitting on a chair!
 Spider webs and bats
 Stacked pumpkins with moss in
cylinder glass pieces
This will carry through Thanksgiving too
with the exception of the runner
A combination of fall picks tucked in with
some fall decorated balls in the top of
my centerpiece
 This cabinetry divides the living room 
and dining room and I decorate it
like a sideboard...
 I fell in love with this frame at a gift shop
and put a printed picture of a witch in it-
but I will soon change it...
She's kind of  a witch/scarecrow in a field
 Luminaries always set the mood!
 In the living room I stacked these gourds, 
pumpkins and miniature corn pieces
I added some skulls for Halloween!
 Outside on the deck my fall arrangements
greets you (see the turkey feather stuck in
with the flowers?- we have quite a few
that visit our bird feeding station)
Happy Halloween
I've had some fun
with it this year-
I hope you've found a way to enjoy 
Halloween this year too !

  2. Hi lovely lady.
    Your Halloween arrangements are gorgeous Liz.. You always to a great job.. I love your Happy Halloween lantern sweet. Your centerpiece is beautiful also.

  3. Your Halloween decorating is wickedly divine! I love every last detail, but, my favorite still has to be the miniature haunted house!
    Have a lovely Sunday, Liz,
    ~ Wendi ~ xo

  4. Your decor is simply spooktacular, Liz!..Christine

  5. Great holiday decorating. I have those glass cylinders too, and love the way you stacked the pumpkins and moss -- what will you do with them for Thanksgiving? Keep them the same? I also LOVE your skulls in the arrangement. You've given me a lot of great ideas. :-)

  6. Fabulous! That mantel is just wonderful with touches of bling and touches of spooky. I love how you have mixed the fall and Halloween, and then you can just remove the Halloween. I hate to admit it, but I am so into Halloween and then so into Christmas, that there isn't much time for fall decor. I squeeze a little in just because I feel guilty, but I could start decorating for Christmas on Nov. 1st!

  7. I just love your decor!!! Your sparkly pumpkins are really pretty!

  8. Liz
    that is the classiest Halloween decorating I've ever seen!!
    I love the candlelabra-it reminds me of the one from "Beauty and the Beast".

  9. Wonderful job of decorating for Halloween Liz. I love your playful self coming out....It's always brings the kid out of each and every one of us. Love the sparkle and the skulls are killer. Happy Halloween Liz. XO Linda

  10. I love it that you put a framed picture of me on your mantel!!! :-) You did a fantastic job (as always!), and I hope you are having a terrific and not-too-spooky Halloween night!!!

  11. Hi Liz,
    Your autumn decor is just gorgeous with little touches of Halloween snuck in. A very elegant spooky you have created!
    Marianne :)

  12. Spooktacular! You have transformed your home into a mansion of all things Halloween!

  13. Looking good and this will take you all the way to Thanksgiving. I especially love the picture of your mantel at night. You are blessed with the gift of attention to detail. Everything looks wonderful!
