I decided that this year I'll keep the interior Halloween decor simple. I gathered a couple of my cake stands on our vintage silver tray and added a large glitter skull to the black stand. I filled the domed stand with miniature skulls and added my black pumpkins to the silver candy dish. Add a couple of orange votives, a candle, a bottle, a black bird and eyeball, and we are set for this year. Maybe I'll drape some spiderwebs, but I find them tedious to remove. This set-up is really great because I can lift the whole thing off the table easily when we need room for dinner.
Last year we decorated the shelf above the TV, but that means I need to put away our existing display and I'm just not up to re-arranging things this year. We'll still decorate our window with bats and spiders and some luminaries, and our outdoor decorations will go up soon - I'll keep you posted on those projects.
Do you go all out on Halloween or do you ignore the whole event? Do you decorate kid friendly or scary?
