Halloween is our absolute favorite time of year to decorate our living spaces. We both love to add festive touches into our existing decor. Here is a look at what we did last Halloween! In preparing to decorate this year, we once again realized just how truly busy we are and had time to purchase just a few new items, dusted off some of our old favorites, and came up with new (but quick) overall looks. Here’s a peek at how each of us used our different styles to create the right look for our homes and what we have goin’ on this Halloween.

T Side: Apparently, it being Joie’s first Halloween is my excuse for going a little bit overboard this year. I wanted to do it all … craft, create a really fun tablescape, pumpkin shop, and even dress my little one up in a coordinating costume! I’ve been busy making the most adorable black and white scene all for my darling Joie. What’s she dressing up as this year? A black cat! Here are the details (and photos) of our cat inspired Halloween decor …

Just a few black and white touches are found on our coffee table; a few candles, a pumpkin, a ball of string (Don’t cats like playing with those?), a cute sign, and a bowl full of my favorite Halloween “mix”. 

My table is set for a fun festive party! Joie has a place to sit too! My new black tablecloth and our everyday dishes make this setting a bit formal while black and white paper napkins are casual and fun.

Yes, I made these buntings! I told you I was in a crafty mood!

Our centerpiece is the white pumpkin we purchased at our family trip to the pumpkin patch last weekend. Don’t you love its disguise?

A kitty cat take home gift is fun too. Meow!

Joie’s highchair is decked out too in all black and white. She loved this mini pumpkin!


These bags are filled with homemade “mix” and are being saved for a special Halloween party Joie and I will attend.


Ok, so a baby photo shoot never really hurt anyone! I think she’s ready to go trick-or-treating for the first time. Don’t you?

L Side: My first time decorating for the holidays in my new home, and I was excited to add some fall touches to my existing decor. Scott and I took the kids to pick out pumpkins last weekend, and we all had fun selecting the most interesting ones we could find. I decided to keep my decor super simple so that it just enhances our Modern Bohemian home. 

This fun grouping of multi-colored pumpkins in all different sizes gives my entry bench fall flair.

The kids have been having fun moving the pumpkins all around and creating their own set ups too.


Proud of their pumpkin picks!

I just love these photos of my Cara …


… and all of their personalities truly come out in these individual pictures. Too funny, Sienna!

Ava wanted to pose with the pumpkin she picked out!

I bought this funky role of mudcloth wrapping paper from Cost Plus World Market and used it as my table runner. I love how it ties in the black and white details of my home and still feels festive for this time of year. 

As you can see, we each have our own style when it comes to decorating, but we also love to see what each other comes up with. Halloween lends itself to millions of different ways of decorating, so many directions you can go. What is your plan this year? We can’t wait to hear how you decorate your space for Halloween, and of course (as we are very visual gals) we would love to see photos as well. Send them our way!
