Burlap, Ruffles, and Halloween

This is the way my formal dining room looked last week.



Lots and lots of pumpkins.  I used part of them to decorate the buffet in the small dining room, and have scattered them around the house for a fall look!

This is how it looks now! I cleaned all of that off and am planning to do something different for fall/ and Halloween.

I had bought this burlap in Lubbock last week at one of my favorite shops. It is an 8 yd piece of burlap that was $18 for the bolt.

It is a very loose burlap.

I got my black sparkly pumpkins out before we came to Lubbock for Howard's surgery!

I dug out my Scary stuff!

White pumpkins!

I have my scary babies out for Halloween!  This picture is from a couple of years ago, but most of them will make an appearance in the new decorating!

I took this picture at Roundtop Tx last fall! 

One of my babies ready for the holidays.


So, I have everything ready and waiting to start decorating when we get home. Please follow me to these wonderful partys!!

  6. Love your originality! We did our decor this year based on movies/books/theater and it turned out fantastic thanks to my daughter and her collection of Harry Potter, Pirates of The Caribbean and Phantom of the Opera items.

  8. Penny,
    You are right...those babies are scary!! LOL!!
    Love the burlap on the ruffles!! Looking forward to seeing what you will do and excited to see the finished project!!

    I start my Dining Room on Friday. I did decorate the Dining Room for Halloween last year after not doing Halloween for a few years after the boys stopped going Trick or Treating. But last year, I did get into it....

    Hugs,
    Deb

  13. It's such coolest idea for celebrating Seattle Halloween Events. Bonza Bash Productions also provides this type of facility. They deliver Seattle’s most amazing Halloween experience.
