Halloween Harvest Table

It's that time of year again!  The time when all the little munchkins cutesy up in adorable costumes and go door to door trick-or-treating for candy.  Yup, it's Halloween!  I normally don't specifically decorate for Halloween itself, rather I just add touches of natural fall decor to my home.  But after seeing loads of fun Halloween inspiration on blogs that I follow, I thought it would be fun to put it all together on my outdoor harvest table.   

In case you missed it, you can see some of these photos and more over at Jennifer's The Old Painted Cottage of the Month!  I have to give another shout out and say thank-you once again to Jennifer for featuring our home for October COTM!  Thank-you again, Jennifer!

I would love to hear what you are all planning for this fun day.  Are you going to get your kiddos all dress up and take them around the neighborhood?  Do you have a Halloween party to attend?  What costumes did you choose this year?

Before I leave, I want to send out prayers and encouragement to our neighbors on the East coast.  Here in Michigan, we have been feeling the effects of Hurricane Sandy with strong winds, rain and sleet, but it does not even touch what they are experiencing in any way.  We still have power and a warm house.  They do not have these and many have lost their homes.  Let's get on our knees and pray for them, and lift up those that have lost so much.  Let us all pray that they truly know God's grace in this storm.

  17. Your decorations are beautiful! I adore the vintage look. This is the first time I've seen pictures of the outside of your home. That view is amazing; I could sit at that table all day looking out.

  18. We had a paper pumpkin candy bucket just like the one in your photos when I was a child. Great decorations! Following your blog now. Follow me to at www.sewsweetvintage.com I posted "chalk board table", "crafty clothes pin" and "whimsical white pumpkins" to the wow us wednesday party:) Happy Halloween

  19. Such fun, "vintage-y" Halloween fun! Wish I still had my old paper mache pumpkins. I remember Mom burning them all one summer when she was cleaning out--makes me wanna cry! So, I'll just enjoy yours for now. You have some great ones!
