An ode to Halloween 2019… how I miss thee…
I thought it would be a great idea to do a mini home tour of our indoor decor from last Halloween… it was pre-blog, but worth a share before the 2020 decor is unpacked for this season!
Like my outdoor Halloween mini-yard haunt, I’ve been adding to my Halloween home decor for the last 7 years. Being stationed stateside, and closer to all the stores, made it so much easier to indulge and change my style over time… there are some pieces I still have from 2013!
I’m low-key jealous that I’m missing out on my favorite stores this year… Michaels, Home Depot, Marshalls… even Ross had some home decor gems for the season! Michaels has surprised me the most with their stylish Halloween looks, like this beautiful floral centerpiece I purchased from them last year!
I may have done one too many hauls in the last 2 years (per my husband), but shopping for Halloween decor is so much fun and it’s always filled with anticipation.
Besides, I loved the way our home turned out in the end…
Where my Halloween yard decor is more of a spooky traditional look, I wanted to keep my indoor decor stylish and chic. I like for all of my holiday decor to be woven through our home, layered into our everyday look. Our living room gnomes that I got from Marshalls were the perfect addition, as were these Halloween pillow covers I purchased from Amazon.
Our downstairs guest bathroom turned out pretty chic… especially with most of the items being from Target! The spider web window cling, the black succulents, the wall art… all Target! I even added a large Happy Halloween wall decal that fit the look perfectly. I love how it turned out, with the added ‘Boo’ sign from Marshalls and that beautiful glass-gold skull I purchased from the base exchange in Japan years ago.
Halloween pillow covers weren’t the only gem I learned about in holiday decor last year. Another spooky win? Beef netting! I noticed it for the first time at Knotts Berry Scary Farm and I loved the way it looked (just not the cost). It’s a much easier cleanup but requires some work when it comes to cutting the holes and stretching the material to resemble a spider web.
Granted, I’m still trying to figure out how to best use my beef netting but even my husband got a kick out of helping to hang it! Our kitchen/dining room came together well with a few other accents… and a pumpkin-man animatronic that I added on Halloween night for our guests to enjoy.
I’m looking forward to this year’s home decor look! This trip down the 2019 memory lane reminded me of how many new goodies I got last year and how it all came together super nicely! The challenge will be pulling it off again in a new home… whenever we move to a new place, the home accents and holiday looks always seem to shift a bit…
A fun game of decorating Tetris awaits – 66 days until Halloween 2020!
