Happy Halloween & Congrats SF Giants

colorful pumpkins for fall // simplified bee

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!

While we soak in the big win and the ground the rain, we will be carving our pumpkins this afternoon for Halloween. I’ve spotted some fun ideas at on Pinterest via BHG.

Halloween Decoration Ideas

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.

Our Halloween Front Porch and 25% Off Lulu & Georgia

For the last couple weeks, my kids have been begging me to decorate our home for Halloween. So, this past weekend we got to work and now our house is inundated with creepy rats, crawly spiders and erry bats. The sight does make one’s skin crawl.

For the front door (the most important area to decorate for Halloween!), we kept it fairly simple and started with a chic orange geometric doormat kindly provided by Lulu & Georgia. The orange instantly says Halloween, but can be used year around. A large pumpkin, magnolia wreath and a family of mice were added to the Halloween front porch to greet our guests. The mice were created using this template and black paper. Frightfully simple to do!
