A couple weeks ago I asked Brad to get the Halloween tote down from the attic.
I learned a valuable lesson that day: never put candles in a tote that goes up in the attic,
especially when it’s not climate controlled and there’s a record setting heat wave that summer.
|RIP candy corn-esque candles. I enjoyed you the 2 years I was able to use you.
Yeah, so I’m hoping that I don’t have many more candles that made their way up into the attic…
Moving on… We don’t have a fireplace, therefore we don’t have a mantel. Instead, I use our entryway table as my mantel.
For the past couple years I’ve been going with a glittery purple, black, and silver theme. This year I decided to jazz things up a bit with a purple boa and a black light. Yeah, a black light. Try not to be jealous.
(Honestly, who has ever been to a highlighter party? You know, where you go to a frat in a white t-shirt and there are highlighters galore and everyone writes obscene compliments on everyone else’s shirts– mostly only visible in black light… but mostly not. Anybody? Anybody?)
|Sorry it’s not the best photo, but I had to share the magic that is the black light.
Here’s a rundown of my Halloween “mantel” decor.
black light: Walmart
purple pumpkin: Hobby Lobby
spiders: I want to say Kohl’s
fake tealights: Dollar Tree
purple boa: Hobby Lobby
big black pumpkin: Target
little black pumpkin: Michael’s
skull: Dollar Tree
ghost: Hobby Lobby
How are you decorating for Halloween this year?
Feel free to share your highlighter party stories here. We’re all friends.
