Halloween Home Tour

The Details

Dress | Booties 

I don’t know whether to ask for forgiveness or to just flat-out apologize at how MANY photos are in this blog post. If it slowed your computer or phone, here is me virtually hugging you to say sorry. ha. I went a little {okay a lot} over the top for Halloween this year. It’s the first holiday experience Maxi has gotten excited for. Sure, she loved our Easter egg hunt this year in the front yard, and she thought Elf of the shelf was pretty spectacular last December. But from the moment we set out the first pumpkin, Maxi has LIVED out her Halloween dreams. She picked all of our costumes. She begged to make pumpkin bread. She tries to spook Paul and scare him.

You don’t have to twist my arm to decorate for a holiday, but seeing her joy, and how much we are home, I had to go ALL out. We will be doing a makeshift version of trick-or-treating this weekend. We are going to some friends’ houses for candy, then making s’mores at home with Gigi and Papa, and painting Haunted Houses!

Much of my decor was old MacKenzie-Childs I have collected mixed in with a few local boutique finds here and there. I have always been passionate about shopping local boutiques with blogging, and even more so this fall and winter. The ghost, spider, and pumpkin are from Hale House. The skeleton is from Lawrence’s Gift. The baked goods are from one of my favorite bakeries, Unrefined!

I hope these photos bring your morning some {spooky} excitement for this weekend no matter what version of trick-or-treating you are enjoying this year. I asked you all on Instagram what changes 2020 has brought about in you, and an overwhelming response said you are enjoying the simple things more. Walks. Cups of tea. Your home. All-out decor may seem silly to some, but it has a childlike wonder I for SURE need this year! I hope you enjoy!

    This wasn’t TOO many, phone didn’t slow down and I didn’t get bored 🙂 I needed this post and validation of enjoying our homes this year! Last night I spent $100 at Balsam hill on Christmas tree ribbon, and needed to justify that purchase because ribbon at Michaels and Costco is under $10, haha. I am gearing up to go all out for Xmas for my almost 3 year old girl, and am really looking forward to her excitement for Christmas decor. Your home and Halloween decor are a child’s dream!

    As someone who has zero sense of home decor, I love this so much. I have been in my house for a year and still can’t pick dining room lighting. Throw in anything for the holidays and I’m clueless. Keep giving us all the pictures! I hope you go all out for Christmas too!

    (PS – would love to know how you organize/store all of your holiday decorations!)

      I never said it was inspirational. It brings my daughter joy, and that is what matters. ?
