I love decorating for the holidays. In the Ely family, the holidays start at the beginning of October. I don’t do a whole lot of spooky Halloween decorating. I do some black and purple decor, but mainly my decorations center around the fall theme so I can reuse them for Thanksgiving. Decorations are expensive and if you can reuse something for another holiday then it’s definitely a smart buy. These gold chargers on the table can be used from October through the New Year. Now that is something the hubby will appreciate!
Another decoration I invested in are lanterns. They are amazing and have tons of practical uses for everyday decorating and special occasions. I use them for holiday decorating, parties, and special entertaining events. For decorating the inside of my fall lanterns, I used some leaves, gourds, pumpkins and an assortment of dried flowers. I really think they add a nice touch to the already existing mums and pumpkins. I got my lanterns 2 years ago at Pier 1. If you’re looking for some check at Lowes and Target. I have seen lanterns there for a great price.
