I just love, love, love Halloween. Almost as much as Christmas. But not quite.
I'm itching to start decorating for Halloween. Especially after visiting Tai Pan Trading store last weekend.
Thought I'd share some of the Halloween goodies that I saw there. I'm not literally going to share. Wish I could. I'll just be sharing photos.
But, if you don't have a Tai Pan Trading where you live and you want me to be your personal shopper at my Tai Pan, I'd be more than happy. Wow, that is a long sentence. I just can't spend my money. But I would be delighted to spend yours.
Just kidding. No I'm not. Yes, I am. No I'm not. Any takers?
First off, I saw these black feather pumpkins. I want one. But I passed. I had other things I wanted more. I think this would be an easy thing to knock off.
I'm totally into black & white Halloween this year. And I loved this sign.
And these jars. Love them!!!! Love how the pumpkin on top looks like Jack Skellington from Nightmare before Christmas. The smaller jars where like $7.00 and the taller ones $10.00. I really don't need anymore jars. But if they had sold just the pumpkins, I would have scooped some up.
I loved this huge spider web. Mostly I loved that they had some sparkly ribbon mixed in. It was like $24.00. I did buy a smaller rope web for $5.00. I may try & find some sparkly ribbon to add to it. I already have a huge sparkly spider that I got from Dollar Tree last year.
I loved these bat finials. The bats were stuffed felt. They were like $8.00 each. I'm thinking of trying to make a knock off version.
I loved these ghosts, but they were more than I was willing to pay. I'm cheap.
I'm going to knock off this sign as well. I think it will be pretty easy.
I pretty much loved everything they had on display that was black & white. I am so going to do my family room in black & white for Halloween this year.
More signs I liked. But my house already has a ton of spider webs year round. Why would I want to add more? But I do.
Besides spider webs, I'm digging skeletons as well.
I really liked this torn up cloth as a curtain or divider. I saw in a magazine where you can also make this out of black trash bags. I'm going to give that a try for my front porch area.
When you first walked into the store they had a bunch of skeleton pirates hanging from a chandelier. Hopefully none of them was Captain Jack Sparrow. I would be so sad. And don't you love the broken mirror? I wonder who was willing to risk 7 years of bad luck to make it.
Aren't these polk a dot pumpkins so cute? They would be an easy knock off as well. And I love the boxes.
This display makes a great Halloween statement. I would love to have that many sitting on my front porch.
Need some dishes for your Halloween table? This is the place to find some.
I loved how they hung ribbons from the tree along with some Halloween paper lanterns.
And I loved this orange mesh ribbon. It really makes a statement. I purchased a roll of it for $6.00. I think the roll is about 12" wide & about 30 feet long. Not sure where I'll use it, but I thought it was cool.
After spending a few hours in Tai Pan Trading & making a few purchases, I am so ready to decorate for Halloween.
I'll try & take photos this weekend of everything I bought and share with you next week.
I may try & do some fall decorating this weekend as well. Since I do think it might be a bit too early to decorate for Halloween. But who knows.
We've already watched Dracula at my house so I am in the mood for Halloween.
What do you think? Is it too early to decorate for Halloween?
