One might say that it's shocking that at 11 days out our house isn't already decorated for the Halloween party. Traditionally (as in 2 full years of tradition) we have decorated at least a month in advance – afterall this is the party! And besides, I love to enjoy the decorations as long I can and putting them up earlier creates fun anticipation for the main event. So, the decorations are a work in progress.
Last night, I was gleaning Halloween inspiration from these images:
Wow, now do we go all out and paint this amazing mural on one of our walls?
Or perhaps we'll have great weather and we can order in a forest of trees for the backyard?
Painting the walls orange – that's committment.
And then DrewB impressed me big time with this grand idea:
I think my favorite part of this is 1. ALL Drew's idea, and 2. it was FREE! So after hot gluing some sticks together to form these letters, I'd say we're off to a good start to the Halloween decor!
