This. Is. Halloween. This. Is. Halloween...

Pumpkins scream in the dead of night. This is Halloween... Ok sorry for the "Nightmare Before Christmas" flashback.

I decorated for Halloween this weekend so I guess you could say I am in the "Halloween spirit". I almost didn't get my decorations out but I just couldn't stand it, even though I already had my fall stuff out!! I put it up, well the decorations that were on the breakfast and dining room tables, and out came the glitter skulls and spiders!

I found a black, super awesome cake plate at Hobby Lobby for 30% off. I passed this cake plate many times on several different Hobby Lobby trips and I just could not get it out of my head! I had to have it!! So Saturday while Mac and I were out on errands we went to HL and purchased the cake plate! :) Soooo happy! I had also, previously, found some really cool, really cheap glitter skulls at HEB (our grocery store here) and picked up some spider web there too.

Here's how it turned out...

This is the breakfast table. I need some black or spiderweb'ish placemats but it's fine for now.

This is the dining room table. It's not great, I'm not 100% in love with the way it turned out (more like 78% in like with it) but it will do for this year. I need some apothocary jars but I used what I already had.

I don't have a black candle so I took a peach one and wrapped it in black scrapbook paper and wrapped white embroidery floss around it. I stuck some sequins on it so it would fit in with the glittery theme.

And instead of taking my fall leaves down I just covered them in spiderweb...

I tried to use the spiderweb as a table runner...

This is the entryway. I didn't want to take down the fall decorations so I just used more spiderweb and spiders...

Decorating is a hard job and I couldn't have done all this alone. Straight from Halloween helper...

And yes.. the "ruler of darkness" still gets in trouble by the "Supreme Ruler of the House"
