Last Year's Halloween Decor

Thanksgiving is next week here in Canada, and we won't decorate for Halloween until after that, but I decided to share last year's simple decor for an everything Halloween link up party.


A few pots of mums, a straw bale with pumpkins, and a Halloween quilt I made a few years ago decorated our little porch for Halloween last year.


Another quilt I made using fun Halloween prints was folded in half and used as a table topper for the candy table in our entry. We get over 200 kids so that is just a small sampling of the treats.


This is the simple vignette I put together last year for the hall entry cabinet.


Check out the titles of these two black books used for props- Grave Secret and Ghost at Work! Perfect for Halloween and free in a box of books I was given.


A close-up of pumpkins, a little jack-o'lantern carved on a school trip, Hallowe'en themed tea light holders, a strand of Jack-o-lantern lights and a simple painted 'pumpkins' sign. This year I will be adding some Halloween plates and the Halloween banners I recently sewed.

We don't go all out for Halloween at our house, but I do like some fun decorations and decor for us and little trick or treaters to enjoy. I'm linking up to everything HALLOWEEN at midwestern {sewing} girl. I hope to see you there!

  5. I always have to remind myself that you live in Canada. I forgot that ya'll have a different holiday schedule from us. I really like your decorations. They are so cute. I've got to complete mine. Maybe next week. It's been very windy here this weekend and my husband will have to hang spiders on the house. Ha! Waiting for the wind to calm down. I look forward to seeing this years decorations when they're ready.

  7. Yes, close to 200 (and then we close the door because later it is just teenagers.) We live in a suburban area in medium size town with lots of homes with kids and 5 elementary schools just in our end of town.
