Going Batty over Halloween!

Halloween is right around the corner, so I thought I would dream up some Halloween posts!  

We don't decorate for Halloween here at the Schue Residence...at least not yet!  I imagine we will join in on the festivities once we have little ones running around, but until then we're in the generalized fall decor mode.

When it comes to Halloween, there are tons of directions to take decor in...spooky, creepy, funny, whimsical, traditional, kid-friendly, etc.  I am a big fan of a more traditional look...one which focuses mainly on black and white.  I am especially drawn to all the fun crow {or raven} inspiration I'm seeing this year!

 Love the mix of Halloween with the regular decor.

  Jar full of spiders?  Yes please!

 Adore this crow inspired table setting.

The mice are adorable.

 Great take on a gallery wall.

 Spooky owls!

 Fun way to showcase your house numbers.

 These little guys are adorable!

 Love the creepy vibe of these terraniums!

 And sometimes, Halloween just need a little color!  This is how I envision our house one day!

All of these Halloween images are from my Halloween Pinboard...found here!

So what do you think of Halloween decorations?  Have you decorated this year?

I'll be posting some spooky Halloween inspired recipes tomorrow!!

  8. Halloween is my hubby's favorite holiday,so you can imagine all the gorey, orange colored nonsense he has.. I've slowly added my touches to the decor, and he seems to like it. I prefer the pictures you have from the top part of the post- blacks, whites, metallics, and of course, glitter... so, eventually, my hope is all his nonsense stays to the outside (or garage) and my pretty decor can stay in the house (:

  9. Those are all so gorgeous! I like the glamorous Halloween decor! Or else I stick with Falloween decor. Didn't go to big this year. Trying to convince myself that less is more to cover up my laziness!

  14. Oooo, I love all of these decorations! You know why? Because they aren't typical or cheesy! You know what I mean? They represent the season, but aren't over the top like some I've seen around my neighborhood. These pictures look like Halloween for adults!

  18. I love all of these so much. We have crow silhouettes above our fireplace, attacking our frames and such - haha! And in the front i put up a little styrofoam cemetery, he he. I went a little nuts being the first time living in my a house as an adult. It was fun and I'm not ashamed :)

  20. These are incredible! I'm in the same camp - I don't tend to decorate for Halloween, but if there were kids in the house then it would be a definite :)

    I will however be carving a super spooky pumpkin and I'm quite excited about that this year!

  23. Living in a loft in NY, means we have limited storage space, so the only holiday we decorate for is Christmas bc we do not have enough room for the others. But one day!! One day, as halloween is one of my favorite holidays. xo

  25. No decorations for us either {no space to store them and no kids to enjoy them :}. Once we have a house and kids though...it's on!
