A Rather Non-Spooktacular Halloween Mantel

I don't usually do the whole "change your mantel every month" thing.
I've got nothing against it...I just don't bother.
I only change it at Halloween and Christmas.

And today...because I heard about this party...


This really awesome party I just KNEW I had to go to.


You see, all the cool kids were going...
everyone who was anyone...
so I wanted to go, too.


I wanted to show up and have fun and bob for apples and stay out after curfew.


But I didn't have a costume.


...or a date...


But that's okay...I decided to go anyway.


Even if I'm a little late...I always seem to be late to the party.


So late, in fact, that it was getting dark by the time
I took these pictures of my NON spooky mantel...
and other Halloween-y things in my living room.






and the subway art...
{I ordered the vinyl from Landee on Etsy and made the board myself}


My little mantel may not be Cinderella at the ball...
  

But it's happy in its own place.
{You can't see it much here, but the orange
Trick or Treat eye chart came from Tater Tots & Jello}


and I'm happy with it.



Of course...that's because it involves ravens.
Holding ribbons. :)

Do you change your mantel often or just at Christmas?

  2. This turned out great! Nothing like a little blog-pressure to get us to change things up a little ;-)

  3. Very cute! I feel inspired to do something with mine...most years I just don't make time to do anything.

    I spray painted my folding chairs after being inspired by your's. Have a great day!

  5. First, your mantel is so charming, and the "Trick or Treat" banner is so fun! I do change my mantel often -- usually more than just the seasons.....lol! I know, I'm one of those wacky, crazy, decorating bloggers who changes stuff all the time!

I do my best to respond to all of them...even though it may take a while...questions I try to answer right away.
