Things to Love in Fall (Part 3)…. Halloween!

With a big family of six children – blended, biological, and adopted – my hubby and I have certainly enjoyed our fair share of Halloween fun through the years. With its spooky decorations, abundance of sweet treats, and creepy festiveness, Halloween is certainly one of the highlights of the Fall season for our family! It’s a time of year when things that are typically considered “taboo” or “strange” are suddenly incorporated into the mainstream norm. Although Halloween is generally considered to be a “kid’s holiday”, there are certainly some adult components that we grown-ups can appreciate. For instance, the color black is one of the primary colors used in decorating for the season. Here are a few rooms featured on House Beautiful that are much more chic than scary….

And take a look at these smartly styled black rooms from Elle Decor….

Halloween accessories can be elegant and sophisticated, as well…..

Better Homes & Gardens featured these two looks…..

Understated, yet effective.

These simple, DIY steps have wood-shaped paper with stenciled writing attached to them. I love the Southern "feel" of this phrase, which also works perfectly for the holiday theme.
