Orange is the new black halloween mantel

There are so many things I love about October.  I've mentioned before that it's a big celebration month for my family with 6 birthdays and four wedding anniversaries.  And that's just in the first two weeks of the month!  You know what else I love about October?  It marks the beginning of my total obsession with the holidays.  Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's.  So many decorations, so little time.

There are countless creative ideas and ways to style your home for each holiday.  It can almost become overwhelming especially if you're a Pinterest stalker like me.  You want to do everything!  Here's some friendly advice - to help get centered focus on your mantel first (or create a vignette on a hall table if you don't have a mantel).  Mantels are often the focal point of a room.  Their design and structure practically tell you to dress it up with decorations for the holidays.  This year our Halloween mantel is a classic orange and black spook fest with a chilling spider web back lit with orange lights, lots of evil skulls, lurcking eyes and creepy branches.  Take a look.

Have you checked out the latest HGTV magazine?  If you have the chance, flip to page 38 to see my red kitchen door featured in the "Wow, what is the color?" section!
