Using Vintage Halloween Decorations In Your Decor

Vintage Halloween Decorations

So you have some vintage Halloween decorations and wondering what to do with them? In this post I share what I did this year. In previous years I’ve simply arranged everything on the mantle. This year, in the new house, the mantle wasn’t a good place for all that, so I spread the items around. On one hand, they have more of a punch amassed, but there’s something to be said about working them in with your regular decor.

Some Fall Decorating Around the House

Even though I don’t have all my furniture and stuff here yet, I have done a bit of fall decorating around the house. Not a lot and there certainly won’t be a fall “home tour.” But I thought I’d share the few things I have done.

First, the fireplace. Just a floral arrangement of little pumpkin-looking things on stems and fall silk, spray, flower things. I have no idea what to call either of these. They were bought at Michael’s.

Vintage Vignette In the Hall Of the New House

Hall vignette using old, oak chest, antique landscape prints, chippy drawer and other odds and ends. Things that wouldn't necessarily go together, but seem to work.

I’m ever so slowly getting things put together here in the new house. I’m talking about turtle slow. Slower even!! Some days I’m all gung-ho and others are… well… not. There are, however, a couple of vignettes – vintage vignettes -I’m fairly satisfied with, but I find myself over thinking everything. Plus, I don’t have all my stuff here. A ton of it is still in storage. So I’m working with what I have and buying new things along when I fall in love with something. That’s happened 3 times so far. 

Anyway, I’ve always loved this old, oak chest. (The color’s a little goofy in the picture below.)
