It has been quite some time since I last posted on my blog but the holidays always inspire me! I had a wonderful Halloween and now I am so eager to begin my holiday decorating. Yesterday I spent the day organizing and packing up all of my Halloween decorations but not before checking many of the "day after" sales to make sure I have some great new additions to my Halloween decorating for next year.
This year I used many of my existing Willow House pieces as well as other pieces I have acquired over the years, and believe it or not, I found great inexpensive decorations at the local dollar store to create spooky, yet tasteful Halloween decor. You CAN have beautiful decor, especially when decorating with a theme such as Halloween, without spending a ton of money. You just need to think outside of the box and get creative!
In the picture above, I simply took a glass hurricane, placed candy corn in the bottom, then placed ghost peeps all around the class in a circle, and then filled it with blue corn chips. I had a wonderful, spooky Mexican dip to go with the chips. Now, next to the hurricane, I simply had a small candle, and two small decorations that I picked up at the dollar store! This was such an easy display but it was such a crowd pleaser!
