Setting up decorations are a quick way to get into a festive mood. Just being surrounded by any season or holiday’s decorations somehow does the trick.
Houses in my neighborhood are quick to decorate once the holidays roll by. Usually by the end of the first week of October, the streets in my neighborhood are lined with pumpkins, spider webs, and ghosts. And the Christmas lights go up by mid November. And I love it!
Adding even just small holiday themed details around the house will liven up the atmosphere. For my second post for 13 Nights of Halloween, I wanted to shared the touches I added to my work space to get myself into the Halloween spirit.
I purchased this neon Beware sign from Michael’s during their Halloween Door Buster sale. It was originally $50 but scored it for only $10. I knew I couldn’t pass on it because it was the last one on the shelf.
This neon sign short circuits and would also be perfect for outdoors to scare some trick-or-treaters.
On the right of the neon sign, I have a pumpkin scented candle from Target’s dollar section. This candle may be small but I’m obsessed with it. I need to buy more of them before the season is over.
I also set up a small vase with orange and black glitter vase fillers that I picked up at Dollar Tree.
The black roses are my favorite. They just scream Halloween! I also added some pumpkin details with a small black and orange glittered pumpkin and a larger glass pumpkin jar.
The pumpkin jar I picked up from my local Smith’s for only $4.99. It’s meant to be a cookie jar but I decided to use it to hold some cotton balls.
You don’t need to recreate a whole haunted house when decorating for Halloween. With just the small details I added to my desk, it bring me so much joy and excitement about Halloween.
See you tomorrow for the next installment of 13 Nights of Halloween!
