Halloween is over...

I know, I know. It's time to start talking about Christmas now... time to start thinking about snow, chilly weather, and long scarves, among many others:

But before we do start thinking about Christmas decor, let me share with you our Halloween.

It was sooooo much fun! We loved it!

This year was special because it was the first year we took the time to make Halloween decorations. (Last year was our first year in this house, so we weren't really settled, nor had quite the energy to do so).

So, this year was pretty special. Since I didn't have much time and didn't want to spend the big bucks, I decided to go for DIY crafts, and they worked out great!

Cute cardboard letters and funny pumpkin (which were a blast for my lovely daughter):

Gorgeous mini pumpkins with candles for the living room :

A lovely chic large pumpkin I painted white and placed in the patio:

Another one more I painted a funny face on, and lots of spiders and bugs!

This one looked especially nice with candles (please forgive my dark picture here):

Last, but not least, bats and a fun windowlantern (great ideas from country living and family fun):

Kids in the neighborhood went crazy for it, and so did I! We actually had to wait 'til Halloween to cover the window, since the black cardboard darkened the master bedroom quite a lot.

It was our first Halloween to decorate home like this, and it was totally worth it!
How did you spend Halloween? Do share!

It was my birthday Rocio....but after a 'certain' age I am glad that I have kids and Halloween is not about me, rather, it is about my kids. My oldest was a paleontologist, my middle one was Kung Fu Panda and my 5 months old baby daughter was Tigger. Your blog is great - and I do agree that those spaces are beautiful. I wish you could come over and help me beautify some of my spaces. I loved the white pumpkin too. :) Hugs.
