A Halloween home tour with spooky vintage charm including a witches and broomsticks Halloween tree, cozy candlelight, and a romantic but ghostly tablescape for entertaining.
I love Halloween! It is one of my very favorite times of the year- our fun traditions, decorating the house, putting up our Halloween tree, matching halloween pajamas, the hubby's homemade chili, the costumes, trick-or-treating, and so much more. It makes me so happy- all of it.
To kick off this magical month of October, I am sharing my home decorated for Halloween and highlighting 25 other homes spooked out for the season!
A Halloween tree is a pretty non traditional decoration, but we have been putting ours up for 8 or 9 years now. It is something we all look forward to each fall. This year we went with more of a vintage witch theme, reusing things from past years and including some fun new things as well. I am still trying to locate the rest of my ribbon so there are still a couple of spots I want to fill in, but this will do for now.
If you would like more information or to recreate my tree, I can put together a post with more details and sources. I basically use the same steps from my two posts (you can see the videos in these posts)- How to add ribbon to a Christmas tree, and How to Decorate a Christmas tree.
I think these rusty bells are my favorite thing I added to the tree this year. They are actually Christmas ornaments, but we will be using them for both Halloween and Christmas. They have star cut outs so they felt very hocus pocus to me, but I think they will also be cute in my vintage toy Christmas tree up in the playroom.
I wired rustic brooms to the tree. I like the rustic texture they add.
Cozy Halloween Family Room
I kept out most of my other fall decorations including the amber glass bottles and the cozy cream cable knit, burnt orange and gold toned pillows. I pulled my big chunky wool knit throw down here from the bonus room and I love the added texture.
My sweet girl is excited to be a witch for Halloween this year. She has been practicing in her costume and even made up a song about a little witchy girl.
Halloween Dining Room
Over in our dining area, I pulled out my wood slice candle holders that my hubby made me from a tree that fell in our yard a few years ago. I pulled out my branches with rusty pumpkin bells on them and put them in these fun apothecary jars I found last year. I used simple matte black wrapping paper from the Michael's dollar bins for the table runner. The striped towel draped over the black paper runner will be available in our online shop when we open in the next couple weeks.
I think candlelight and twinkle lights make Halloween so spooky and magical.

So cute Kristen! You inspire me so Thanks! Where did you find the amber glass bottles? Are they antique or new finds that you decorate with?
They are antiques 🙂
Beautiful decorating! Love the large mirror that you added in the dining room--just fabulous!
