Soooo it started with this wreath (thanks for all your encouragement, by the way). Whatever I did to the mantle was just gonna have to work around this bad boy.
I basically shopped the house for the other items. It’s amazing how fun it can be to move things around and feel like they’re new. It also helps that I stick to a general color scheme throughout my home. It sure makes it easier to shop it!
I knew I wanted some extra pops of orange this year, so the only things I purchased were the two glass pieces below. One was .99 and the other was $1.99. Big spender, I know.
Orange sticks in the candle below. $4.99 at Meijer three years ago. Another lucky find, I guess!
I definitely wanted something a little more streamlined since Halloween had a lot going on! It’s festive, yet calming for me. Can’t go wrong with that! Of course, after all that work, my husband’s response about the mantle was, “Yeah. Nice. I like how cheap it was.” Of course you do, dear.
