Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to decorate to my heart's content! I have several themes this year and I'm dying to share them with you!
My coffee bar area is first on the list. I have to admit, I'm a huge mug collector and had to make a hard decision as to which mugs to display and use this year. Oh boy, it wasn't easy but let me tell you what I did...
So, what had happened was I went through all 40 something mugs and by process of elimination I chose the ones that I knew I would use on a daily basis for drinking and the ones I only wanted to use as display. The good thing about doing this is I also decided what items I wanted to donate to charity!
Next up are the two shelves above my sink. I did a Disney theme here and it turned out great! On the top shelf is my Mickey Mouse pumpkin cookie jar canister I got from Marshalls. Super cute, right?! I added some fun pieces with it in the same orange, black and white color palette. The bottom shelf it totally dedicated to Hocus Pocus! I used some decals on a few of my Rae Dunn pieces (the Sanderson sisters and I Smell Children). I painted one of the white gumball machines from Target Bullseye's Playground black and added small skulls. This turned out perfectly!
Below I put bats on my kitchen wall for some added flair and dimension with the black haunted hotel and mansion (another nod to Disney's The Haunted Mansion). On my island I created a mad scientist's lab, complete with potion bottles that light up and change colors, skulls, skeletons, spiders, a witch's garden and more! I added purple lights inside the big cloche with the skull and spider (looks super creepy at night!).
The last area in my kitchen is where I decided to do some more decals on a few more Rae Dunn canisters. I ran out of room on the island to place all my potion jars, so I made some space and added them to a tiered stand, along with a pumpkin light and a "tipsy" gnome, and a few Johanna Parker pieces!
Decorating for Halloween this year was so much fun! I hope you all had an enjoyable time decorating your spaces as well if you celebrate. Happy Halloween and stay safe everyone!
