Happy Monday! I hope your weekend didn’t fly by too quickly, but mine certainly did. Everyday when I get to work I’m half afraid to look at my task list. It’s usually so long! That’s why the weekends are so important to me- it’s the one time I actually have to relax and do the things I enjoy. For example, this weekend I got to spend a little time decorating my apartment for Halloween and fall! So far, I haven’t really shared much about my apartment or what I’ve done with it since moving in. Honestly, it doesn’t get much sunlight so it’s hard to photograph without the natural light. Today, I wanted to share with you a few photos I took of my apartment decor for fall!
Probably my favorite decoration I put out was this adorable frosted glass Jack O’ Lantern! I love to put a candle inside it at night and just watch it flicker, it’s so pretty! The best part is that I got it at Marshall’s for $5.99. I love a good deal, especially on something that I know I’ll be using for the next few years. My mom has so many cute decorations like this that she found randomly and they’re some of my favorite things in the world! Traditional fall decor like her’s makes me me so happy!
Okay this may be my other favorite decoration! I went to a Wine & Design class and we painted this cute “Pumpkin Spice Latte” canvas painting last year. It’s so nice to hang up during this time of the year. I love when artwork can be used to represent the seasons because it blends in so well with the rest of my home decor. Plus, I love a good pumpkin spice latte! Don’t you?
Another little art project I completed a few weeks ago was painting this ceramic pumpkin gold. It was a cheap project to do (under $10) and kept me busy for a good 3 hours. How chic is gold this season anyway? Adding little gold things like this pumpkin around my apartment was the perfect way to keep the aesthetic I already had but still embrace the fall season. Plus, who can say ‘no’ to a Bath and Body Works candle?
And last but not least, is my fall table centerpiece! I took a class at Michael’s Craft Store on how to create a fall centerpiece and it went really well if I do say so myself. Of course, I had lots of help from the professionals. My kitty cat, Petunia, has enjoyed trying to eat the fake berries off of the centerpiece and then bat them around the kitchen floor for me to step on. At least she’s ignored the pumpkin salt and pepper shakers my mom bought for me. Those are my favorites!
Leave me a comment with your favorite fall and halloween decorations! I love to see what other people do with their homes! Have a great Monday lovelies!
