Today is the day! I’ve been eagerly anticipating Halloween all month; in order to get the most out of the holiday, I decorated my apartment weeks ago and have been adding little touches here and there to keep myself excited. Here are a few glimpses of my Halloween home:
Nothing extravagant by any means; this is my first year decorating my own home for the holiday, so I don’t have many permanent items yet. I purchased both the leaf garland (which will stay up through Thanksgiving) and the vintage-inspired Halloween owl from talented Etsy sellers papernotebook and HouseyHome, respectively.
I’ve also been watching and reading horror over the past few weeks. Last night, my boyfriend and I sat next to each other on the couch reading our Halloween picks (Swamp Thing for him, Hannibal for me). After our reading session, we watched 1970’s horror classic, “The Omen,” which I picked up at Goodwill for a dollar this past week.
And now I’m listening to the Halloween party Pandora station! I really love holidays; they give me the chance to do something special and out of the ordinary, and I love themes. Share your favorite part of the holiday in comments, and have a Happy Halloween!
