Pumpkin Prep

Who doesn’t love October? The leaves are changing colors, fall fashion is in full swing, and pumpkin flavored goodies are all around. For most of us, Halloween means dressing up into costumes we’ll regret in a month’s time, parties we can’t seem to remember, and a candy coma that lasts for weeks. For the rest of us (myself included), it’s all about switching up summer decor to fit the Fall celebrations-starting with Halloween! Cobb webs, ghosts, witches are the norm for Halloween decor, but we’ve found a way to incorporate Halloween decor without looking like you’re living a bad teen horror movie.
