I can’t believe that October is just around the corner. I feel like I just got my pumpkins out and cooler temperatures have barely begun. A few days ago, I pulled out the Halloween decor and started planning where it all would go. All was well, until I got to the kitchen. My pretty little buffalo plaid and orange striped pumpkins make me so happy that the thought of putting them away made me sad. So, I began planning how to keep them. Why couldn’t my kitchen Halloween decor be more fall, less Halloween. Cute not creepy!
Don’t worry, I’ll still keep it a wee bit wicked! Here at the castle we do love our traditional Halloween decor.
In years past, my kitchen had a traditionally Apothecary theme.
Lots of beakers, black cauldrons spilling over with eyeball filled goo, and mad scientist flashing lights.
When I found this super cute essence of black cat whiskers apothecary tin I knew it was the perfect bridge of cute not creepy. Plus, it had the perfect colors to match my pretty pumpkins.
I plan on adding fresh flowers to this sweet tin as the month goes on.
My table place setting is pretty traditional.
Orange placemat, black charger, white plates and a cute sugar skull salad plate.
My second new addition to my cute not creepy table is these cute small bowls.
While not a traditional halloween design, I love the cute stripes and polk-a-dots.
Plus, they were the perfect size for a small boo pumpkin and some treats!
I did keep my potions and spell sign and my Halloween banners.
For me, my kitchen turned out pretty cute- not creepy.
Like I said, while it is still a wee bit wicked, I think it also falls under the cute not creepy category.
