Halloween Decorating With Balloons

HALLOWEEN PARTY DECORATIONS

Its October . . . and you know what that means?!  My favorite movie month! Yes, I love horror movies and everything scary in film. Maybe it is because it makes feel so alive to scream and jump at the movies! Ha!

The other reason I love October is because of Halloween.

  I want to share some creative ideas for decorating with balloons and the perk is all of these ideas are relatively inexpensive.  Balloons are always cheap and the best decoration for parties.  Balloons add height and balance to party tables but can also be painted, wrote on with Sharpie markers, and creatively arranged at any event.

5 Easy Ways To Spook Up Your Balloons At Your Halloween Party

This is my absolute favorite idea!  A letter banner and balloon combo- and to get your creative play on words in a fun letter banner, click here- Look What You Made Me Boo

If you like the idea of adding a Boo balloon to your banner and wall decor, they can be found the letter balloons here- Foil Black BOO Halloween Letter Balloon

How about this super easy craft project to turn your balloons into spiders that only require – black balloons and black crepe paper

How easy is this- grab a black Sharpie marker and draw your own adorable cute faces and Jack-O-Lanterns on your balloons!  If you lack artist skill, you can actually buy these with faces already printed on the balloons here – Ghost Balloons & Jack-O-Lantern Balloons

This idea is clever too – add some bat wings to your balloons so they look like they are going to take flight at any moment!  Seems easy enough to make with some scissors and these – bat sticker decals

Or if you don’t have any balloons – these hanging paper lanterns would also work for adding bats!

You can also keep your balloons more basic and ready to inflate with helium with these fun polka dot balloons or clear confetti balloons with Halloween colors of confetti too.  Layering with banners and tissue tassels are an easy way to also create a larger party table backdrop.

Fall Home Tour

FALL HOME TOUR

Why My Home Is Not Farmhouse Style

There is one thing you should know about our home- it is not farmhouse style and thank goodness! I need COLOR!

Fall is my favorite season, because of all the bright colors of autumn. I like my pumpkins orange and not white and grey. No offence to those who have white decor, white walls, white furniture and white everything.  I do love neutrals – looking at all those ivory, grey, and tan shades is certainly calming and wonderful . . . in someone else’s home. As for me, I went with neutral walls so that I could change out my home decor every season with a pop of color.

Today I am sharing a few areas of my home decorated for fall, starting with our entry table above that is a layered abundance of fall floral arrangements and rustic accents. Yes, I painted that scarecrow stave in the corner many years ago and made the fall wood sign last year.

Our dining room has a wonderful large bay window that lets in so much light in the morning – of course I took these photos a bit late in the afternoon, so even with my flash on and lights all turned on, its a bit dark, but I think its still bright enough to show off.  One of my favorite pieces in our home is the wood box centerpiece on our dining room table – I change it up every season.  Right now it’s filled with leaves, glitter pumpkins, acorns and three electric candles.

My husband made the hanging wood piece above our buffet.  I designed it, but he built it for me last year.  I added the lanterns and switch out the wreath for different holidays.

We just purchased this sideboard cabinet a few weeks ago- it has stunning details, which is why I fell in love with it, plus it was refinished.  I found it at our local area pop up shops in Kansas City, called the West Bottoms.  I love shopping there- I always find recycled home decor and vintage treasure!

This is our kitchen and informal dining room fireplace and my favorite place in the home.  On cold winter nights we turn on the gas fireplace and eat dinner at this cozy table-

Last are a few of my side tables decorated for fall around our home.

Finally, a few items I’ve tucked in that are actually for sale over at my home decor shop on Etsy-  Once Upon A Home Designs

This set of wood pumpkins and fabric pumpkins made by me –
