Halloween Decor

Luv, luv, luv this post from Beaux reves!  Her dining room looks amazing!!!  http://beauxrevesamore.blogspot.com/2012/10/haunted-dining-room.html

I've started my Halloween Decorating but really just haven't gotten far.  The last week in September T came home and everyone went to the Ole Miss vs. Alabama game.  I got some cleaning done but no decorating.  The first weekend in October KJ was finishing up volleyball so I didn't any decorating that weekend either.  This last weekend was the annual Cos Family Celebratory Triad so the only decorating I got done was birthday party decorating. 
 
I've really been into glitter the past couple of years (Pinterest influence perhaps??).  Right now I have a purple glitter skull sitting on a large black candle holder and some pumpkins totally decked out in black and orange sequins and glitter.  I also have KJ's Halloween cat painting on one end of the mantel and a long, horizontal black and silver Halloween wooden sign in the middle. 



I'm also a sucker for the whole Pottery Barn / vintage / traditional Halloween look.  I like simple, clean lines and like a monochromatic color scheme with pops of color. 

I luv, luv, luv a great decorated buffet! 



Really, really into skulls this year.  I think when the kids were younger I decorated in more of a "Happy" Halloween style -- cute pumpkins, patchwork scarecrows, sweet, not scary or threatening.  Now I think my decor has evolved into more of  "Classy Scary."  I don't like blood or gore but do like to set an elegant, appropriate table or buffet. 




 

 
Is this what they mean when someone says, "I'll have your head on a platter??"
