Lifestyle Review: Halloween Home Decor

The greatest time of the year is finally here and I couldn't wait to decorate our new home for Halloween. So much so I put the decorations up in September. Take a look at my decor inspired by all things Autumn and the spooky season...

Some of you may remember that we recently moved to Stamford, Lincolnshire (about a 30min+ drive from Peterborough). And, with a fresh new space to decorate for Autumn, I was super excited to stock up on new Halloween pieces. Ever since my trip to the US last year where I embarked on a Halloween road trip, I have been collecting pieces from here and there and am pleased to finally see it all on display in the new house.

I just love that cosy feeling that comes with Halloween decorations. Tea lights and pumpkins just bring so much warmth to the house and I want to leave them up all year round. Some of my most favourite pieces I've found this year have actually been total bargains. Particularly the neon bat light which was just £8 from ASDA, as well as the little pumpkin tea light holders which were only £1 from Flying Tiger. 

The centre piece of the house for me really has been the fireplace. Truly one of the perks of moving to the country. I was a bit scared of lighting an actual fire as our cat Ripley is overly curious so instead we filled it with electric lights to give the illusion. I just love garlands and found these paper bats on Etsy, whilst the knitted pompoms were kindly to sent to me from America. The dripping candles were a total bargain at around £1 each from ASDA, whilst the pumpkins are a collection of art shops, B&M, Wilko and Poundland. The bottles were actually the most expensive part. These are from a local antique shop and real poison bottles from a Stamford chemist. The set was £30 but I'd happily keep these on display all year round. Whilst all of these pieces are a collection and mismatch of prices, I think they work really well together. 

Well that's it for a quick tour of our Halloween living room. I'm in absolutely no hurry to take our decorations down and am definitely going to try to integrate them in to our usual decor as much as possible. But tell me, have you decorated for Halloween? What are some of your favourite haunted home buys? As always I love reading your comments so please do share your thoughts with me below. 

Until next Halloween, keep it spooky ghouls and gals,
