Monthly Musings: September 2022 (All About Fall Decorating and Halloween!)


Hi Friends!  Patty and I are so glad you stopped by!  We hope you will join in on the fun and answer our questions below...

I never hesitate to talk about Fall Decorating...Halloween...Traditions and all of the fun so let's go!

How do you Decorate for Fall/Halloween?

So typically outside we decorate with pumpkins and gourds and cornstalks with bows and a mum here and there

Inside, we go all Halloween with pumpkins and scary characters adorning our family room and kitchen





2. Do you Decorate Inside?  Outside?  Both?

See above- BOTH :)



3. When do you do your Fall Decorating?


We start in September because we learned years ago that everyone sells out of pumpkins by October- it is crazy!



4.  How do you "pumpkin"?  Decorate with pumpkins?


I put real pumpkins outside in our planters and in some buckets in one area of our yard.  Inside, it is about ceramic pumpkins as part of our decor


5. Do you add lights to your decorating?   Share photos!


Sometimes..sometimes not...I did purchase this awesome jack-o-lantern stand that lights up and we keep that out on our front steps


Exhibit A



6. Do you do anything special for Halloween Dinner?


Growing up, I LOVED my Mom's Halloween Dinner because she said "it is going to be light" and she would make her homemade souffle which is to die for!  I will never forget it...we were so excited to get all of our candy and eat it so we ate it up in a jiffy so we could get to the junk!  Ha!


In recent years, we have eaten at Lea's party..this year is up in the air right now..we may all follow Eva around to start with her friends, so we shall see!


7.   Favorite Halloween Candy?


Would have to say either 100,000 bars or Baby Ruth- Chocolate, Caramel, Nougat? Yes please ;)



8. Full Size or Fun Size Candy Bars?

Fun Size says Halloween to me!



9. Best Fall Decor Tips?


Buy your pumpkins early!  See # 3



10.  Pumpkin Spice?  Yes or No?

Yes...I do enjoy pumpkin flavored treats...I will occasionally get a PSL at Starbucks and I order it with only 2 pumps of pumpkin and no whip and that cuts down on calories but not the flavor!

I love the cornstalks!!! Now I'm thinking about how to add some of those to our decor!

Joanne said...

I don't think that places sell out of pumpkins around here... but we never really bought many real ones and several years ago I swapped out to all fake ones so I no longer have to worry about rotting pumpkins and frost. We had some of the grossest, unintended science experiments with those.

@Joanne- Rob sprays our pumpkins with this protective coating that he gets at Home Depot- it prevents them from rotting early AND keeps the birds and squirrels from eating them! We learned the hard way ;)

Love your outdoor decor, especially. So fall and festive and natural looking too. Great link up!!

Your mailbox set up is SO cute. Very inviting! I love your "spooky" mantle. We usually put spider webs on our front bushes a few days before Halloween with a few spiders. My kids probably wish I did more for Halloween.

Shocker...we take our PSL basically the same way. And a Baby Ruth is a very underrated candy bar.
