Trick or Treat Yourself

The first holiday of fall is in 15 days! That is right, Halloween is in 15 days-this is not a drill! Here at Homestead & Co we are trying to decide how to decorate our front office door for the holiday trilogy kickoff! We have some listings that have great front doors- perfect for decorating for Halloween. 

Are you a fan of trick or treaters or are you one of those that turn their front lights off and ignore all of the doorbell rings? No shame if you're not a fan of giving out candy to cute little kids, all dressed up to get some candy.... Come on, just hand out some candy and get in the holiday spirit! 

Us home decor obsessed individuals love to treat ourselves with the best of the best front porch Halloween Decor. What is your go-to style when decorating your front porch for halloween? Are you more rustic chic, let's put a hay bale and a pumpkin and a scarecrow out, or are you really into ghosts and goblins and scary looking spider webs? Both are great choices! I am going to share with you my favorite front porch decor options! Some scary, some sweet. You be the deciding factor on how you are going to prepare your front porch for those cute trick or treaters!

The Down-Low on Pumpkin Decor

Hi guys! And Happy Thursday (almost Friday yay!)! Here at Homestead & Co, a hot topic of discussion is fall decor and the debate of whether fall decor needs to be colorful or neutral. In my opinion, neutral fall decor is where it is at right now-especially white pumpkins! We all know that the fall season is represented by all things pumpkin. There are pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin oreos, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin decor. The rustic interior of one our current listings has given me major fall decor inspiration! Decorating your home for the fall with pumpkins may sound basic but I know all the tips and tricks to make your pumpkin decor turn from drab to fab!

The blogger would is a great place to gain inspiration and of course, everyone's favorite, Pinterest, is where the majority of my ideas come from. First, let's ditch the average orange colored pumpkin- Let's paint our orange pumpkins white and go from there! Next, add fall greenery and flowers to cover the stems of the pumpkins- this makes the pumpkin look like a chic vause. Another way to rustic up your white pumpkins is to create a center piece for your dining room table with pumpkins and add the simple touch of deer antlers! I also like to style my white pumpkin decor on my coffee table by adding stems of cotton to give the display a little life!

My white pumpkin decor can be found all across my home- from the living room mantel, to my entry way table, to my counters in my kitchen, to my coffee table. The white coloring of the pumpkins is not loud by any means, making it possible to use them all around your home and it not feel like it is too much.

Below you can find my favorite inspirations for white pumpkin decor!
