ADDING SOME ORANGE & BLACK

One of the things I like about decorating for Halloween is the color scheme. I really love the look of orange and black together. It's as pleasing to me as the red and green combination that is so popular for Christmas. When I decorate for Halloween I always manage to include at least a piece or two with orange and black somewhere on it.

Take for example the arrangement on one of my end tables in the living room.



In this grouping my three little friends are stirring up something that is really very orange. It looks like they're having a good laugh about something. I wonder what's so funny.




Wednesday and Pugsley are guarding the Boo! candy box that is filled with pumpkin candies of course. I finished painting the box yesterday and filled it with Halloween candy.





My addition to the bears' tree was nothing grand, just some strands of raffia. The two ghouls and my little wizard seem to approve which make the little ones very happy.

I have a few more decorations I'm working on and will post them when they're finished. I've been looking for ears of Indian corn to make a wreath for the front door but have had no luck finding any.

Halloween is one of our favorite times of year. My daughter and I still get a kick out of the fake eye balls and the bats, the striped stockings and the black pointed hats. The spider webs with the plastic spiders may be a thing of the past and although we don't buy the vampire fangs any more doesn't mean we don't want to. The ghost stories and the scary movies and the costumes, we love it all.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing the little touches of orange and black and that you're having a wonderful weekend. As always thanks for stopping by.

I love black and orange as much as you, my lovely friend. Your witches are adorable and I remember when you made them so very fondly. Can we trust Wednesday and Pugsley alone with the candy box? Which is too precious by the way. And your tree! Oh my heart sings. Between you and Linda, I have definite tree envy! Warmest hugs, Mina

Thanks for sharing your decorations with all of us. Your home always looks so lovely. I might just be inspired to do a Halloween tree of my own. Go on now ~ go buy those fangs! Life is too short to deny yourself simple pleasures.
