I never really decorate for Halloween. I'm more of a pumpkin and fall leaf girl because it's a look that can last from September through Thanksgiving. However, our recently acquired vintage typewriter (Question: doesn't a typewriter pretty much have to be called vintage?) inspired me to spookify the kitchen a tiny bit.
Brad is actually the one who fell in love with the typewriter, and I'm glad he did, because I knew I had to use it to leave "a dark and stormy night message."
I paired the typewriter with a bowl of mysterious silver pumpkins and fruit.
On the nearby cabinet, a bat tree adds a little extra creepiness. It was super fast to create - just a few branches and some bat clipart.
My tablescape should last all the way through fall.
I copied Pottery Barn and filled my lantern with pumpkins and gourds.
A small dough bowl holds silverware.
No one was coming to dinner, but I had to try out my apple place card idea for the pictures.
Now I just need a pot of cider heating on the stove and the kitchen will be deliciously full of my favorite fall things!
What kind of Halloween decorator are you? Do you stick to the harvest look? Do black cats and bats make you smile? Or do you go for the full ghouls and goblins scare?
