We all love Halloween and hopefully i will have time to jot down a post about Olivias spooky antics but there comes a time in the evening where you put the kids to bed, turn off the porch lights and say night night to the trick or treater’s.Adult time to enjoy your home and relax doing whatever takes your fancy. Our favorite adult room in the house is the living room and i just cannot help but display something that i have unleashed from my creative side.
Halloween ties in with lots of autumn delights and the creativity of the season should be for us Mums too. Luckily the dining room which is our main family area is always decorated for the season in plenty of time, so when we had friends over for an impromptu Halloween gathering at the weekend they were more than satisfied with the decor and the theme was set along with lashings of red wine, light up glow sticks and tons of spicy food.
I must tell you that my Husband and I know how to throw a good party, Impromptu or planned we always have something hidden away and ready to use in our events cupboard. Yes we have one!
So back to pumpkin styling……
On a roll i grabbed a small under grown pumpkin for myself at the garden center whilst letting Olivia choose the biggest she could find. I placed it in my creating shed along with other collections we had foraged, saved, cut and bagged from the garden and decided to paint my little pumpykins white! I really didn’t need to put to much effort into making the paint work look perfect as a vintage looks goes down so much better on Halloween.
As i fetched the painted pumpkin from the shed this morning i looked for a dish to place it on. I have recently just got a new cocktail seat for the living room and the upholstery is in a smoky grey color. I raided my cabinet for hard back cooking books and removed the sleeve to reveal some cool colors and i achieved the look by placing my filled dish on top of a stack of books!
