Happy Monday, Blog Friends!
I hope you had a spectacular weekend. I also hope that you, like my boyfriend, are enjoying a day off of work for Columbus Day, while I am sitting in my little cubicle staring at a computer for 9 hours. No, really. I do. I’m not bitter. Not at all.
And really, Columbus Day probably shouldn’t be a holiday…You know…considering the slaughters and overall not-coolness of the guy. Nope. Definitely not bitter.
So I’m going to take you on a tour, today! A photo tour of our Halloween decked out apartment! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to put up our orange Halloween tree this year…but next year, we will hopefully have a house with lots of space for Halloween trees. And Christmas trees. Because…well…have you met me? (Hmmm…I guess not. But whatever. You know enough to know that I get a little crazy during the holidays.)
I started getting prepped in September. Not just because we had a Halloween Kickoff party, but also because 1. Our apartment was a complete disaster and 2. I like to enjoy the decorations for as long as possible.
We go a little creepy and a little autumn-y so that the decor can last until it’s time for Christmas music. I mean decorations. The foggy cover is because I took these pictures while the fog machine was rolling (you know, for effect.) I told you, guys…I don’t mess around.
What do you do to make Halloween special, Blog Friends?
I like most of it pretty well except the bottom two pics. No zombies I notice. Maybe that’s a good thing!
Ha. Thanks! We didn’t do any zombie stuff. Lots of pumpkins. I want to do a scarecrow next year.
Maybe you should get a pic of Jack Nicholson in “The Shining” to put up.
LOL. Not a bad idea.
Super festive. I like it!
I love you, you crazy woman. Because I’ll be at my parents place for Halloween I’m totally going to carve a pumpkin. That was the one thing I hate about apartment living. Lack of trick or treaters.
Hahaha! I’m planning on leaving little Halloween treat bags for the neighbors downstairs, and then going to my aunts for trick-or-treaters…Assuming jury duty doesn’t take over my life on Halloween. UGH.
I am a Christmas tree freak myself. I have never seen a Halloween tree….. that might be dangerous for me to research. I am already getting ideas on decorations 🙂
I’ve never put up the Halloween tree, but I’m really excited for when we DO have the house. Because it will be an orange tree with purple lights and hanging bats and spiders and creepy crawlies!
