Halloween Ideas :: Pinterest Favorites

With October’s arrival all eyes point to Halloween. My kiddos are busy fine tuning their costumes and strategically planning neighborhood routes for the most treats. Meanwhile, I’m a little behind the eight ball in terms of planning the decor, so have turned to Pinterest (to no surprise I’m sure!) for inspiration. Here are a few recent spook-filled pins that caught my eye.

I’m thinking of keeping it simple and have I’ve rounded up a few great examples of fall front door ideas perfect for Halloween too!

Hello Friday! Not only is it my favorite day of the week, but it’s an extra special one at that. Today here in the San Francisco Bay Area we are celebrating the rain (at long last!), Halloween (kids are geared up!) and of course our 2014 World Series Champions SF Giants (for the 3rd time in five years might I add)! Love this image below… captures the thrill of the win. They never give up. So proud of our team!

Holy cow, Halloween is almost here and I’m behind the eight ball! My kids have been pointing out some of the homes in the neighborhood that have already decorated for the spooky holiday and asking when we will decorate our own home. This weekend I tell them knowing that I’ll have to keep my promise.

So to get me and many of you inspired and motivated for Halloween decorating, I’ve pulled several of my most popular images from my Halloween Pinterest board to share.
