Halloween Decorating

I've never been a huge fan of this holiday, but Ellie has since become obsessed with all things Halloween. She loves scarecrows (runs over to them in the supermarket to say, "hi!") and loves skeletons, ghosts (she says, "boo!"), pumpkins, etc. She loved helping me decorate- I even went out and bought more decorations, such as hanging spiders. I prefer the black and silver color theme for Halloween. Orange wouldn't go well with the rest of my decorating and paint colors, but I love it on our front porch.

Here is my silver skull (mentioned here, too):
I bought the white skeleton not realizing I had the black one, too. Next year I'll do matching black skeletons. Ellie loves saying "hi" and "bye" to them every morning and night.
 Our hanging spiders (Martha Stewart, $2)
 My $1 banner (a great Target deal!):
 This was a perfect spot for our new black cat. I like how it matches my black leopard plate.
Our dining table centerpiece: white pumpkins (purchased at a pumpkin patch) and these spider web votive holders (Home Goods on clearance, $2).
 Our second mantle: I added a couple metallic pumpkins:

I just purchased white spider webbing for our porch. I still have to pick up a few more pumpkins, then I will post a photo of our outside. Happy Decorating!
