The Pretty Side Of Halloween

When my boys were little we would go all out with our decorations for Halloween.

Young families would walk their children around the neighborhood in groups. I would always have hot cider in  To-Go cups for the parents. Friends would stop by, and visit for a few minutes.

 It was so much fun, and has given us all some sweet memories.

One thing I never liked was scary decorations. There are too many precious little ones out there in costumes waiting for a treat, not a scary trick. 

I did not want to traumatize the sweet little ones in Cinderella, or Spiderman costumes.

Since Halloween is right around the corner I thought I would show you the prettier side of Halloween. 

Let’s look at the cute, pretty, and in some cases sophisticated side of Halloween……..

Go to Goodwill and find some inexpensive items to spray paint black and add some cute little pumpkins with happy faces!!

Speaking of black spray paint!……….

This is my kind of Halloween decorating. Again, go to Goodwill and purchase those inexpensive vases we all have seen and spray them matte black! This is one of my favorite ideas for my home.

If you prefer a little more glitz and bling in your decorations check these out…………


I love the ghost with the gold chain, so cute!!

Real oak tree leaves were sprayed and attached to a white pumpkin, this is so pretty and elegant.

This is not only pretty, but a fun way to display your address.

By using a band of sequins this pumpkins becomes fun, and glitzy!

Take your pick of which golden treat you would like for your pumpkin.
