Red White and Black Halloween



Who says Halloween decor has to be orange? Well, I love orange but not in my kitchen so this year I decided to work with what I had and bring in some black and white Halloween decorations to mix up with what was already on my kitchen shelf.

I was really trying to make it easier on myself this year and try to mix in decor and not have to take everything down like I have in previous years.

Love this little black and white pumpkin from Target years ago.





Battery operated candles add a flicker of fun at night. I love to pull up into the driveway at night and see the glow of all my little holiday lights shining through the windows.


This little spook was a gift from a friend. He is smiling over my kitchen.


Not too scary and I didn't have to take down and store all the goodies normally on the shelf. Simplified. Notice kitchen still not painted. Life.

The little spook is much too jolly to scare anyone!

Darling, scarlet ladybug,
On the prowl for bugs and such,
If I met you on the rug,
I would not be frightened (much).

Super cute! These past couple of years I have been on a mission to simplify my holiday decor. Fewer areas decorated, more of my "regular" stuff left alone, etc. I'm still working on it, trying to get closer and closer to my goal of only using about 30 percent of what I used to. (that goal does not apply to my christmas tree... everything else yes, tree no.) I've already donated a bunch of stuff that I will not be using anymore, and plan to have another box out the door the week after Thanksgiving. It feels great!

Blessings,

This is inspiring to me! I have a kitchen with yellow, red, and black, and I don't want to orange it up, either. Love your ideas. The witch pumpkin is my favorite part.

I love how you worked Halloween in amongst all of your decor, and it looks fantastic! I've done that too the last few years. So much easier, and it doesn't feel like a hassle to decorate anymore!
Happy REDnesday,

Red, white and black Halloween....different, and I like it! I like mixing it up whenever possible, and this certainly does that! The pumpkin with the witch cutout is really cute!!! Don't stress on the unpainted kitchen. It'll be there! :-) Have a relaxing weekend!
