Today’s stop on the Haunted Halloween Home Tour is the kitchen!
While the den and living room decor is pretty spooky with the hologram pictures, bleeding silhouettes and haunted accessories, the kitchen is a cute and friendly take on Halloween. I like to use a lot of my Mickey things in here.
Swapping out just a few everyday items for Halloween makes a big impact in the kitchen. For example, the little rug in front of the sink is one I’ve had for about 20 years and takes just a second to put out. Just pulling an appropriately colored cookbook off the shelf counts!
I got the Happy Everything frame a few years ago and have enjoyed swapping out the attachments and pictures pretty much every month. The chalkboard was from Michael’s a few years ago. And, of course, seasonal candy is always a favorite way to decorate for any holiday. The jar of Oreo’s didn’t last long!
I picked up this darling wall flower at Bath and Body Works last year and was absolutely delighted when I noticed it projects bats on the wall behind it. So cute!
At the sink I go with two holiday decor stand-bys – seasonal soaps and dishtowels! This year I picked up the Pumpkin Spice scent from Williams Sonoma again. It is heavenly.
A couple of years ago I accidentally put out all candy corn colored fruit, but now it’s a thing. Oranges in lunch boxes all month long. :-)
The coffee area has been dressed with my Happy Everything plate and Mickey ghost mugs that we brought home as our Disney souvenirs four years ago.
We use the island for everything now that it is flat and solid! I kept the holiday decor to a minimum – using just the Mickey Treat Bowl that I chose as a souvenir from Disney three years ago. I put clementines, protein bars or mini waffles inside for an easy snack.
I found the cute light up Mickey and Minnie pumpkins at Publix and threw them in the buggy when Honey wasn’t looking. Minnie came with a purple bow, but I painted it black.
Like the island, we use the kitchen table daily. I keep seasonal decor simple and to something that can stay during meals, or be easily moved.
For Halloween I have my old Ballard Jack o Lantern shades out over the island and the table.
I tied ribbons on this cute container I’ve had for ages. The arrangement was made in a large cup to fit right inside and not ruin the pumpkin. I went with orange and yellow flowers for Halloween!
I repurposed the bunting I made for the porch fireplace a few years ago into a smaller bunting for the kitchen. I added the cutest Trick or Treat garland from the dollar spot at Target. I use command hooks to hang things like this on the mirror.
The runner used to be on the boy’s play table many, many years ago. I haven’t used it in a while but decided to press it into service. (Quite literally…. I actually had to iron it. LOL)
This darling Mickey ghost pillow is yet another Disney Halloween souvenir. Two of my favorite things!
I love decorating the kitchen almost more than any other room (except the porch) because it is truly the heart of our home!
The mudroom is just off of the kitchen and, while they have been outgrown, I still put out the trick or treat bags for nostalgia. Even the puppies get Halloween treats in their jar.
Happy Halloween, y’all!
