Halloween Decorations Apartment Tour

Happy fall y’all! (Hubby is from the south, so I’m allowed to say y’all now, it’s a thing.) As you may already know, I’m that girl that everyone makes fun of for loving fall—pumpkin spice lattes, comfy sweaters, booties, all of it! Most of all, I love Halloween and decorating for the holiday.

This year, I had to mostly start from scratch after a lot of my decorations molded in storage (white throw pillow was green, if you know what I’m saying). Anyway, no sense crying over spilled spoiled milk, so I took the opportunity to get some new decorations for the season. I took a pricey trip to HomeGoods and focused on things that could be up from September to Thanksgiving to get the most bang for my buck. I found a cute pumpkin pie recipe graphic, some fun "happy fall" and football signs, and pretty wooden leaf garland.

Since Halloween decorations are meant to be kitschy, in my opinion, you can go cheap. I went a little crazy at Dollar Tree, and scored some spooky flowers, glitter skulls, and a fun witch is in sign for the front door. I also bought a bag of mini skulls and eyeballs and displayed them in a glass carafe, and picked up a few orange foam pumpkins and painted them in chalk paint to elevate the look (idea inspired by Kallie Branciforte of But First Coffee, who has a ton of dollar tree decoration ideas on her YouTube).

My advice if you want to spruce spook up your place for Halloween is to focus on a few vignettes that maximize visual impact, like I did on my bar cart and even around my air conditioner, which is usually an eyesore. I’m so happy with how our place came out, and I’ll be investing in some storage solutions so I can keep growing my collection every year (seriously guys I'm never going near a basement again). What's your favorite way to decorate for fall?

  6. It's just too bad that we don't exactly mark Halloween in Kenya but at least that's my sister's birthday so I guess we could do something for her that's themed. I really love the decorations. These are amazing.
