The Halloween Decorations Are Out!

Our house is now ready for Halloween! This morning I pulled out the bin of decorations, as well as our brand-new box from Hallmark, and the girls and I got busy!

One of my favourite Halloween items is our collection of photographs taken over the years, which I set out as a display on the kitchen buffet. The pictures inspired us to take a walk down memory lane...

(How could I not be Cinderella the one Halloween I was blonde?)


2013


2014



This year, the girls have convinced me to go with their theme (as characters from a particular piece of fiction) but I would be in big trouble if I spoiled the surprise!

Some of our favourite new Hallmark items for Halloween 2015:

My little one is crazy over Roary the Candy Monster ($17.95 with the purchase of 3 cards). He sings and dances to a parody of (what else?) I Want Candy!




Since she loves to scare people, my older daughter's favourite is Drop 'n' Greet Bernie the Bat ($14.95 with any purchase). This motion activated bat hangs from the ceiling and says something spooky (he has a repertoire of 10 different phrases) as he drops down and flies back up.




Mommy's favourite (because I'm a sucker for door decor) is this classy-looking BOO sign (a bargain at $7.95).




I'm also loving this Halloween Scarf ($9.95 with any purchase), since it's subtle and festive at the same time - though let's be honest - as a primary teacher I could get away with bright orange jack-o-lanterns with no problem!




Okay, time to get your decorations out...and send me a photo!

Disclosure: Hallmark sent me the items above for review purposes. Opinions are, as always, my own.

I don't decorate for Halloween aside from the obligatory jack o'lanterns, but I really like the BOO sign! Looks classy, and not too much trouble to store throughout the year!
