It’s the time of year for the best part of holidays…DECORATING! My roommate & I have a box of miscellaneous holiday decorations in the closet (I’ll admit Christmas is overflowing to other places) and I love getting to open it and see all the cool things I forgot we had. Of course, I always end up buying more every year, so God Bless Bobby because we’re going to have to have an entire room in our house for all my themed items (Love you babe).
I thought it would be fun to share some of the things that I use to decorate my apartment! I love seeing everyone else’s decorations, so I’m here to hop on the bandwagon!
First is my FAVORITE! I have basically the coolest relatives alive, so one of them sent me this HALLOWEEN SLOTH BLANKET (Shirley you are my HERO), and I literally carry this thing around my apartment with me. I use it at night, at my desk, on my couch, like EVERYWHERE. I’ll honestly keep using it after Halloween, but right now it makes me feel so festive.
NEXT: Spooky candles, spooky Target pumpkins…I’ve definitely shown this before on here, but it’s still one of my favorite setups. And it has changed- my plant babies had to come inside because it’s cold! Also, that candle is called Crisp Fall Night, and it’s so wonderful that I’m burning it without Bobby even though it’s “our” candle. (Sorry not sorry).
So, most of this stuff is actually here year round, like the little hedgehogs/bat, the black statue, the letters (my roommate & my sorority), and the skeleton succulent, but honestly they fit in so well with all the holiday decor. The vase I threw together today by shoving the little pumpkin garland into a vase; it was too tangled to unknot and hang, so I figured this was a good repurpose. These are just a couple little fake leaf/acorn bundles from the dollar store, but they work great! And of course, the little baby pumpkins from Target.
That’s just a little glimpse, mostly because I don’t have many “displays.” There’s little pumpkins here and there all around the apartment, but these are the main areas of focus!
How do you decorate your house? Send me pictures! Tell me! I’m always down to go bigger and better…!
