Halloween Home Trimmings

Do you love decorating for the holidays as much as I do? 



Even if it's just a few festive trimmings here and there, holiday decor can add so much fun to the house. 


In the weeks leading up to Halloween, I've changed my kitchen chalkboard every week with a new Pinterest-inspired Halloween message.



As an English major, I had to throw in a couple spooky Shakespeare quotes here and there.

 Hamlet, Act 3, Scene 2, Line 351

Macbeth, Act 4, Scene 1, Line 10

This teacup is from Jess's baby shower. The black and white pattern went perfectly with my favorite tin of tea. 


Sun flowers add a little brightness to an autumn arrangement. 



Candles warm up a room chilled by spooky ghosts.  



These three funky witches are hugging each other tight. 


Wishing you a happy Halloween weekend from the girls at Red Rose Alley!

Your home is nicely decorated, I only do fall décor with pumpkins, scarecrows and colored leaves.

Nel, Those cutie pie witches are you, Jess and your sweet mom. :):) You are all too sweet and pretty to be scary. LOL. I absolutely love sunflowers in autumn décor. Great art on your chalkboard, clever girl. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

Love it all, Nel! The labeled bottles are wonderful and the touches of tarnished silver and the pretty teacup are perfect for that 'haunted mansion' look! The quotes are great, too!
The witches are soooo cute. Happy Halloween! xx Karen

That teacup from the shower is most unusual - love it. And those sunflowers in the silver coffeepot are just gorgeous. Everyone must be so excited about the upcoming new arrival!
