All Hallows Eve: Decorating for the Perfect Halloween Party

Halloween is definitely one of my favorite holidays, as I’m sure it is for many of you out there, too! It’s one day a year you’re allowed to be creepy without (too much) judgement. My inner-teenage-goth-girl gets excited to be let loose and celebrate in ways she only ever dreamed before.

In lieu of doing the trick-or-treating thing, my sweetheart and I decided to throw our first annual Halloween party at our house, which I hope becomes a wonderful tradition for many years to come.

Here are just some of the ways we decorated (on a budget!) for Halloween:

We had such a wonderful time with our friends, and really enjoyed making memories with everyone! We can hardly wait to build on these decorations and memories next year, and all the years to come.

I would love to see how your Halloween decorations turned out! Please feel free to comment below with any questions or comments.

Happy Halloween, everyone!
