This Is Halloween
Halloween month is here! In September Kiel and I start off decorating our house with pumpkins and mums. Once October arrives the cornstalks, jack-o-lanterns, and indoor decorations come out (along with the pumpkin attire). We look forward to decorating for this season all year long.
When it comes to indoor decorations there is nothing better than the classics. We inherited a few pieces from our family but have spent a decent amount of time hunting down vintage paper mache pumpkins and black cats. There is one antique store we frequent that sells vintage Halloween decorations but most of them can be found on Etsy or eBay. They are hard to find for a good price. In Woodstock, Vermont we came across a really great home goods store called RT Home that sells reproductions for $20. I wanted to walk away with all of their decorations to be honest. In our home we tend to go a little bit overboard with holiday decorating but it brings us so much joy. As a child I remember hanging the cardboard cutouts of witches, owls, cats, etc on the wall. I loved when it was time to decorate with them again. We picked up a few for Harry to enjoy. He especially loves the owl.
This month we released a few pumpkin items for Kiel James Patrick — pumpkin sweaters, socks, and men’s cords. We love this time of year so much we had to incorporate a few Halloween inspired items to our collection. The pumpkin sweater is also perfect for Thanksgiving!
Have you brought out your Halloween decorations yet? How long do you wait to start carving jack-o-lanterns? I’m honestly curious. We carve a few early in the month and a few more a couple of days before Halloween. They never last very long but I do it for the pumpkin seeds! I enjoy them so much with cheese boards and over butternut squash soup. Kiel has also been known to show up to Autumn themed parties wearing a pumpkin head.
Below I shared a roundup of all the pumpkin and Halloween inspired things I’m loving this season.
