Halloween Decorating Ideas

If you are down to the wire to get your Halloween decorations out or just looking to step it up for your upcoming Halloween party or if you are hosting a costume party – I’ve got six amazing Halloween decorating ideas and Halloween fireplace mantels that will make you want to rearrange your hearth for the coming spooky festivities.

6 HALLOWEEN FIREPLACE MANTELS

The carved flames on these pumpkins are stunning but easy enough to create yourself!  The layered spooky framed art over the hearth makes this fireplace mantle fun and whimsical too.

All that glitters is the theme with this Halloween fireplace set up – including the black glitter painted skeleton.  It totally works- when the lights go out everything will shimmer in the firelight and light up some candles at night for even more sparkle.

If you are short on Halloween decorations and time, this simple fireplace mantel setup is perfect.  Only a few basic decorations adorn this fireplace for black and white elegance.

In case you have not noticed, the Halloween trend this year is pose-able skeletons.  The human size skeletons are so versatile and you can really get creative with setting them up in funny scenes.  This steampunk themed fireplace features a repetition of over-sized skulls and a unique letter banner hanging from a shower curtain rod.

So there you have it-six creative Halloween decorating ideas to help you get your fireplace ready to greet your guests at your spooky soiree!

BIG NEWS – BLOG UPGRADE COMING SOON

Blog Upgrade & Fall Baby Shower

Today I am sharing some big remodel news- nope, not a remodel reveal of my home. . . my BLOG is about to go from blah to TA-DA!

Actually, to be more precise, it will soon have a more streamlined, clean and simplified appearance!

While that is going on, behind the scenes, here is a stunning FALL BABY SHOWER to boost your baby shower planning ideas, if you are helping out with a baby shower this autumn –

I don’t often share too many boyish themed parties and baby showers – so this is a rare treat.  I love how the aqua blue, which is a subtle way to add boyish decor into any seasonal theme, has been incorporated into all the decorations, including the fall leaves garland!

I am very excited and can’t wait to share more amazing party decorating ideas, home decor inspiration, and diy projects on the new upgraded blog.

Be sure to stop by in the next few days to see the big makeover!  Until then, have a great week.
