Starting in late September, there’s nothing that makes me happier than coming home to the happy feeling of Fall. I love being greeted at the front door by the ambiance of one of my favorite seasons, so I always make sure to create that Fall feeling in my foyer. Although I change it every year, the photo below is one of my favorite designs.
In October, I like to change the look, by adding a few more ghostly items, to create a SPOOKY Welcome for our trick-or-treaters.
My favorite find (at JoAnns, etc.) last year was the removable, bejeweled spider webs that I temporarily adhered to my foyer mirror.
They work just like window clings and are removable. It was such a subtle haunted touch!
Below is a close-up view of some of the table detail. Once again, I LOVE using my apothecary jars! In this design, I added some glass eyeballs (Dept. 56) & in staying true to my budget-minded decorating, I picked them up in a post-Halloween sale at 90% off! I found the spider cupcake and battery operated flame candle at a Hallmark card store (I’m sure you can pick both up on line – try ebay). I’ve seen my cake dome in tons of stores, but I found mine at Home Goods (a discount home goods store that is part of the TJ Maxx and Marshalls store chain). And finally, the spell book duo was from Hobby Lobby (www.hobbylobby.com).
