Fall Decorating/Shopping Day

I finally put out my (very simple) fall decorations yesterday.  The weather dipped into the 70’s (coldfront!) this weekend and I figured I better take advantage of the opportunity of it being somewhat fallish.  Plus, I was getting sick of just looking at the boxes that held all the decorations in them.  

Here are a few pics of how it all turned out:

 

Pumpkin centerpiece on our dining table
  
Scarecrow I picked up at a yard sale
  
Mom pumpkin and her baby pumpkin
  
Fall cornucopia
  
Another pumpkin duo
  
Florida spin on the fall…seashells with autumn leaves
  
Flower centerpiece on our kitchen table
  
Another cute scarecrow
  
Notice the 2 little pumpkins on each end of the TV stand
  
The best for last…Tom the Turkey! My favorite!
 

After decorating, I ran to Party City to check out the Halloween costumes. Every year we attend our dear friends annual party, where my husband & I like to dress as a couple if we can. Here are some pics of our prior couple costumes: 

 

Pirate theme
 
 
Popeye & Olive Oil
 
 
The Cat & Cat Burgular
 
 
Nerd & Naughty Teacher
 
 
A fisherman & his fish
 
 
Ninja & Geisha
 
 
Ninja Turtles
 

Originally, I wasnt sure if we would be attending the party this year because our FET was scheduled for the same week and I would have been on bedrest.  However, since the FET is off, we will be going & having some much needed fun.  My husband wants us to be clowns this year (dont ask my why, I think they are creepy), so thats what I was on the hunt for at Party City. I ended up buying bits and pieces of accessories to put together our costumes instead of purchasing the pre-packaged in a bag costumes.  I will be a cute clown, and he will be more of an evil looking clown (even creepier!).  I will post pics after!

  1. I love your decorations. I am so into seasonal and holiday decorating but cannot make my house look as great as that. I may take some of these ideas :). Love seeing your costumes- you are so pretty! Also obviously super fun to dress up every year. Enjoy the party!
