Touches of Fall Around the House

Hall chest vignette2I can’t believe it’s October already and fall is in full swing! Halloween is just a few weeks away so I thought I’d show you the little seasonal touches that I have added to the house. In the entry…a vignette with a little Halloween twist and lots of fall color! That’s my Pottery Barn inspired Indian corn candle in the background ( tutorial here) and a pumpkin-shaped basket…a $5.00 find at Michaels several years ago. The little Boo! sign is from Target’s dollar section.

Pumpkins with hat In the silver tray…a row of mini-pumpkins, one of which is sporting a tiny witch’s hat…fun! 
Entrance vignetteOn the pony wall on the other side of the entrance there is another little Halloween vignette starring a fun sign half price from Jo-Ann and a cute little ghoul from Dollar Tree! I seem to be loving those tiny witch hats this year, so I added yet another hatted mini-pumpkin!

Wisteria Inspired Crows More tiny witch hats…this time on Dollar Tree crows for a Wisteria copy-cat look! You can find a tutorial for making the witchy crows here. Gotta love the tiny pumpkin topiary in the background!

Halloween CenterpieceAnd in the breakfast room…a fun Halloween centerpiece. I love that funny Jack-o-lantern plate and the cute tiny witch hat tree. (Are you seeing a theme here?)

Ghostly guy Here’s another little fellow from Dollar Tree…a silly ghostie

Ghost Salt and Pepper …and some more funny ghost salt and pepper shakers that I’ve had for so long that I can’t remember where they came from! They make their appearance each Halloween.

Hall chest vignette2Can you tell I am excited about Halloween this year? My two youngest grandsons..both toddlers…will be old enough to notice! I have more decorations that are strictly for fall and not Halloween that I am saving to show you later. And this vignette will convert easily…just remove the little sign and the hat and we are good to go! That’s one of my favorite things about fall décor…it lasts from September until Thanksgiving! Woo hoo! That’s my kind of decorations!

  1. Debbie, your decorations are so cute! You did a wonderful job with all of your vignettes!

  2. Hi Debbie,
    Great fall and Halloweend decor. I'm sure the little ones, as well as the big ones will love it!


  3. Debbie you have such cute decorations and I can't believe that you got some of this stuff at Target Dollar really know how to make things look more expensive. Some Home or Decorator magazine should keep track of your blog and put in your pictures. You really have done a fantastic job...always. Can ya tell I am jealous of your "magic" touch? LOL

  4. Your Halloween decor is fun and whimsical. SO cute!!! I like your breakfast room centerpiece best....It made me smile!

  5. You always make me smile, Debbie, and your house is so festive. I know the grandkis have fun with you. How could they not? And those hatted crows are as cute as can be.

    Are the little punkies faux or real? I love them, but I'm always afraid I will have one rot in my house. That happened one year. I still want to try your masking tape idea and might. Justt got to find some here.



  6. Debbie love all your fun fall touches!!

  7. Love your little trio of pumpkins on the tray, Debbie! I'm with you ~ I love that you can decorate for Fall and with a few adjustments go right through to Thanksgiving. The day after, the Christmas stuff comes out!

  8. I love your vignettes Debbie! They are fun, creative and frugal too!
    Addison is going as a mini pirate girl, don't know about Cali yet.
    Aren't grand-kids the best invention around! hehe.

  9. Hi darling, as always just too cute for words. hugs ~lynne ~

  10. Deb, I was just thinking how much all your boys are going to love seeing all the Halloween decorations!! It all look so darling!! You found some great finds. I am still on the hunt for some dollar tree crows!! I want one for the front porch. I will have to check out our dollar tree store, I think we have one?!!
    Happy Thursday,

  11. You have the cutest things, Debbie! I never have muck luck with decorations at the Dollar Store or the dollar bins at Target...everyone must get there before me! ;-D

  13. You are so super talented. I love your tablescapes! You inspire me!

  14. So festive! I love how you stacked the pumpkins and the hat you put on the pumpkin . . . and the way you dressed the stack of books! I have a stack of books in my window ledge and I may just borrow your idea!

  15. Debbie,
    Your ghouls are adorably spooky, dear friend! Reminds me of "Casper The Friendly Ghost" cartoons of my childhood!!!Your tiniest "Trick or Treaters" will be thrilled at your decor! The fact that you can easily switch it out is truly, bewitching!!!

  22. Cute, cute, cute! I know your grands are loving your fun Halloween vignettes. I know, I am. I can't make up my mind how I want to decorate so I'm doing a bit of fun and colorful, and another bit of creepy and not colorful. :) I just finished the foyer, so gotta edit the photos.
