Easy Halloween Decorations Around the House

Halloween Decorations_Fireplace

D & I are kicking off our first holiday season in the new house by hosting a Halloween party, and I’ve been putting some spooky touches around the house. While we’ve put some lights up outside and carved the standard pumpkin, it’s the finishing details inside our house that have me most excited. The best part is that everything was easy to put together. Here are a few photos in case you’d like to see!

We swapped out our usual photos on the mantle for some skeleton hands {gift from my mom who is also a fan of Halloween}. Like wine and pretty handy with black spray paint? They make the perfect accessory for tapered candles!

Thank you, Target for this bleeding skull candle in your holiday section. I like it so much that I may not light it!

A not-so-spooky black mouse adds a nice touch to our floating shelves. {Psst- here’s a sneak peek of Riley the Boxer Pup’s Halloween costume. Can you guess what it is?}

How are you decorating for Halloween?

Hello, World!

Well, hello there, friends! Welcome to my humble little blog’s first post!

I’m not sure how you stumbled onto Delano Drive, but I’m glad you’re here!I’ve daydreamed about creating an online space for a while now, but the holidays have officially inspired me to take the plunge.

When I’m not writing on the blog, I’m spending time with my nearest and dearest {including a wonderful boyfriend and our adorable boxer puppy}, flexing my creative muscles with amateur DIY projects, and catching up on Scandal. My hope is that Delano Drive will be a fun space for you to kick off your shoes, get comfortable, and hopefully, find a few inspiring things while you’re here. I hope you stay a while!
