Let the Holiday Season begin!!!

One of my neighbors has been working on his Christmas decorations (outside in the 100 degree heat) for the past week.

My other neighbor has a "Welcome to our Patch" sign on her front door with pumpkins surrounding it.

My neighborhood is ready.  We aren't playing around this year.  

I do have a serious issue with Halloween decorations, though.  Tombstones and lots of unnecessary spiderwebs kinda freak me out.  I have softened over the years, mainly because the boys think it's awesome that our neighbor has a huge,inflatable Halloween Scooby Doo in his yard every year.

Here are some of the things I am really digging for Halloween.

The Treats
How adorable are these witch hat cupcakes??!!!

 The Mantle Decor
Source.  Links to the Subway Art here.
A few cutie printables, some festive candlesticks, and you are SET!

The Bejewled Pumpkins
Sparkly Pumpkins?  Now THIS is something I can get in to.

Another thing that I would totally get in to if I had girls???  Halloween tutus.  If I ever have a little girl she will wear one of these tutus during the entire month of October, (and then switch to her Thanksgiving tutu, and then on to her Christmas tutu.)

Lucky for us, Meredith from Kutie Kidz is giving away a Halloween tutu to one lucky reader.  And if you win, you have a choice of orange/black or purple/black (for a "witch"..how cute!)  She will custom make it for whatever size you need.

Just use the Rafflecopter below to enter. 

The first 2 entries are mandatory and the rest are optional for more chances to win!

The winner will be announced next Monday!  And until next Tuesday (Sept 11), Meredith is offering free shipping on her Halloween tutus.  (Just mention that this post).

I love to decorate more for Halloween than Christmas. Is that bad? It's just fun and a lot less time consuming! ;) Your picks are so cute...especially the mantle and bedazzled pumpkins!!

Love those decorations! I'm a big fan of decorating for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. This time of year is so fun!

Love your blog!

I love that mantle! I'm so ready for fall!

I'm not a big Halloween person, myself. I especially don't like the spiderwebs all over the front. All I think of every time is that actual spiders are probably taking up residence in it. haha

Those tutus are so adorable!

I LOVE tutus! I have been on a tutu making spree lately. Mostly for my girls American Girl dolls, but I am already gearing up for Halloween costume tutus!
