Halloween Home Décor Photo Tour

Halloween Home Décor photo tour - witches

Happy Halloween everyone! Well, in a few days anyway. I’m still in shock that we’re in October. However, over the weekend I decorated our entrance, hallway and kitchen with a few Halloween knickknacks (I love that word)!

As we live in the UK I always feel we’re a bit half-hearted when it comes to Halloween decorations, parties and celebrations. However, over the last few years I’ve definitely seen an increase in merchandise available and more and more people are hosting parties and taking their children trick or treating. I love any excuse to decorate the house and as rocket man gets older, it will be a lovely seasonal tradition to enjoy together.

HALLOWEEN DÉCOR

As you might have noticed I’m normally a lover of pretty things, so the usual ghoulish Halloween paraphernalia doesn’t float my boat. However, I’ve found a few pieces that shout Halloween, but in a quainter way. They are mostly from my travels to the USA or little independent shops. Rocket man is too young to understand, but when he’s older I don’t want him to be frightened of Halloween. Hopefully my softer approach will keep it fun.

I must admit our front step is a bit lack-lustre, as I just popped a couple of pumpkins out (not worthy of a photo!), but I have adorned our front door with a lovely autumnal wreath.

HALLOWEEN HALLWAY

I like to decorate our hallway because this is the area most people see and it’s also the easiest place to remove existing homey bits, to be replaced with Halloween decorations. I love fairy lights of any kind, so was thrilled when I found these gorgeous ones on Achica. Our little man loves to see them shining on his way up to bed. I’m also a candle fan and have had this witch candle topper for a few years.

Let me introduce you to Pongwiffy (shown in the centre), she’s my favourite witch. Named after a wonderful children’s book by Kaye Umansky, her spindly legs can be set to different heights and she always makes me smile. You can’t beat a witches hat for decoration, so I also have a couple of other bits that go really well with my favourite witch.

HALLOWEEN KITCHEN

As we spend so much time in the kitchen I like to make sure this has a seasonal feel too. I’ve decorated two windowsills, the mantle over our oven and even sneaked in a few napkins to jazz up my hanging shelf.

I hope to add to my decoration collection each year and then I can spread them out across the whole house! It will be a few years before we go trick or treating, but in the meantime we can enjoy our happy Halloween décor.

In the six years we’ve lived here we’ve never had any trick or treaters and I’m hoping all remains quiet this Halloween too, because if anyone wakes up my little man I won’t be impressed!

    OMG you totally put me to shame. I only have the things we have made but last year little man and I totally went to town and decorated the whole house with paper plate spiders, bin bag bats etc I even made a face on the front door. I must go and hut them all out. Thank you for linking up to #ablogginggoodtime ?

      Not at all Catie – sounds like you went the home-made route which takes much more effort! Have a quiet year this year and then come back big next year ? x

    I love your decor – the autumn wreath is beautiful! (You have a gorgeous front door too!) I love Pongwhiffy too, how can you not smile looking at her. We live on a road with lots of families and lots of the houses go all out for Halloween, I think we’ll have a go when Max is older. But they’re very respectful, and we’ve never had a knock on the door – they only knock on the houses with the decorations. Fingers crossed it’s a quiet one for you!

      I do love a wreath! Bring one out at Christmas and Easter too. Wondering if I can fit a summer one in! x

    I love your autumn wreath, I’ve not seen one of these before. I love an excuse to decorate the house and make it feel more seasonal. We don’t get anyone come knocking on our door, thankfully as I wouldn’t want them to wake the girls. They are definitely getting more into it as they get older. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove x
