I’m back from a two-week vacation in Greece and it’s time to update the house for fall with favorite Halloween decorations. Before I left, I visited two of my go-to places to shop for seasonal and holiday decor.

If you’re thinking, “wasn’t she just on vacation in July?” — you’re right! Incredible Iceland Trip Ten Day Adventure was a surprise arranged by our sons. My husband and I had already planned Athens and a Greek island cruise over a year ago. It was a present to ourselves to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary. A fabulous, dream trip.

Although I’m still regrouping, unpacking, and doing laundry (while adjusting to a seven-hour time difference and jet-lag), it’s time to decorate for fall.

This week I’ll be shopping for mums and pumpkins, putting up decorations, and setting spooky tables, including Eye of Newt and Haunted Halloween  Hallows Tablescape.

In the meantime, let me take you virtual window shopping for favorite Halloween seasonal inspiration and decorating ideas.

Favorite Halloween Haunt

My first seasonal shopping stop is always to Old Allegheny, a country home furnishing and accessories store. Old Allegheny hosts great seasonal open houses for holiday decor.


 

 

 

The entry is decked out in decorations for the current season.

I’ve taken you here twice before for Previewing Christmas Kicks Off the Season and Perusing Spring Open House.

For fall, there were lots of jack-o-lanterns in different materials, styles and sizes to choose from.

On the opposite wall, is a primitive mantle decorated with more pumpkins, candles and an adorable pair of cats.

Most tempting were these adorable mice dressed as witches. Don’t you love the shoe? Where to put them…?

When I take you on a tour of my Not-So-Scary Halloween Decor Home Tour, you’ll see I already have a ton of stuff! Much of it was accumulated from past shopping excursions to Old Allegheny over the years.

In the room to the immediate left, is table set for the season with fall linens and florals.

There were lots of different kinds of faux pumpkins; usually offered in a trio of sizes or shapes. I particularly liked these white ones.

What’s with all the grey these days in decor? What do you think of this group of grey pumpkins? Isn’t fall suppose to about rich shades and color?

There was also turkeys and other Thanksgiving decorations throughout the store.

I’m always on the lookout for vintage-style Thanksgiving decor, and it was hard to resist this turkey chocolate mold.

See how I organize all my stuff in, Shop, Pack and Store Holiday Decorations, Tableware.

I didn’t go home empty handed, restocking my supply of fall scented candles from Old Allegheny’s extensive selection.

Down on the Farm

Although it was too early for the pumpkin patch and maze, Trax Farms had their mums and fall flowers displayed inside and out.

favorite-halloween-shop-mums

I particularly liked these miniature mums. But, since we were going to be in Greece for two weeks, I needed to wait.


 

 

 

I’ll be heading back to Trax this weekend, and hope they still have them.

I’m surprised how warm it still is in Pittsburgh. How about in your neck of the woods?

Some of my friends are thinking of skipping planting mums this year. Our summer annuals are still blooming and I hate yanking them out to replace with mums. Even my potted ferns are still looking lush and green.

But, then I see these beautiful displays of fall blooms…

A Coven of Witches

Inside, the barn was packed with Halloween and Thanksgiving decor.

Like Old Allegheny, I’ve taken you holiday shopping with me to Trax before. Bee sure to view Easter Hunt and Finds  and Visiting Trax Farms at Christmastime.

But, this visit was in search of a new witch to join my coven, er collection of whimsical witches. You know, the kind of gals who only cast good spells.

favorite-halloween-shop-trax-witch

These two caught my eye.

favorite-halloween-shop-trax-witch-sitting

What I wouldn’t give for a place to store this larger-than-life witch!

We could literally stand nose to nose!

favorite-halloween-shop-trax-lifesize-witch

I’d have to cast a spell on my husband who already thinks I have way too many holiday decorations LOL!

More Tempting Than Candy

These cute little signs would be fun to tuck in with my favorite Halloween decorations.

favorite-halloween-shop-trax-signs

I especially like this one. How about you?

favorite-halloween-shop-trax-witch-sign

When I saw these adorable figures, I had to hold myself back from starting yet another collection

favorite-halloween-shop-trax-characters

And these plates too…

favorite-halloween-shop-trax-plates

I also liked these solar-powered jack-o-lantern scarecrows on stakes. But, I decided they might look a little too menacing on either side of the front door to welcome young trick or treaters. What do you think?

More Halloween posts are on the way, including Retro Green Ghost Game Night and Gonna Need a New Broom, Witch Wreath.

I hope you’ll stop for a spell!

Here’s to Us

The trip to Greece was to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had a rooftop dinner with amazing view of the Acropolis that night.

I’m very blessed to be married all these many years to such a wonderful man.

Happy anniversary honey. Here’s to many more!
