More Halloween Decor!

I guess you could say i'm officially accepting that summer in Wisconsin is closing and Fall has arrived. This is my fireplace. I cant wait for Halloween to hand out treats, my pumpkin is always ready for Grandchildren's little hands or my kids when they pop in or guests. I end up filling up this pumpkin at least 3-4 times before Halloween is even here. Once the pumpkin is on the fireplace mantel, everyone knows there are goodies in it.
I dont do tablescapes. This would be as close as I come. I decorate my table for Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years and Easter Dinner. Thats it! I've added Halloween now to. I even forgot that I have a Ghost and Pumpkin Salt and Pepper Shaker.
And here is my fireplace all lit up! I still have so much more to put out,,,this isnt even a touch of what I have. I'm going to scale back though, big time. I've told my kids to come pick out thru my decorations because I'm scaling down and what dosnt go--is getting donated. Last night it was a great night to have the fireplace lit up once again, all decorated. I hope everyone had a nice weekend and you can all say We are officially into Fall!

10 Thanks for your comments!:

Hi Dawnie,
Your fireplace looks so pretty all lit up! Fall is certainly coming here in Wisc. but I sure will miss summer. We have trees whose leaves have started to change! Have a great week my friend, Cindy

The Halloween fireplace lights are so fun and so pretty. I'm afraid if I had the treat bucket filled now, I would be the one who ate all of the treats! laurie

I don't do much decorating for halloween as we don't get any trick or treaters.
It's warmed up here during the day again, but the nights are cool.
I wish fall would hang around for a long time. It's the best time of year.
I like your decorations!!

Hi Dawnie, I love your Halloween decor. I need to get with it and do some myself. I don't buy halloween candy until the last minute because I eat too much of it. I don't know if it would still be a temptation to me since I have given up sugar but I'm not going to take the chance. lol Happy Haunting, B.
