My friend Silvia came over this weekend and we whipped up my living room into spectacular and spooky shape! She is a genius at decorating and adding all the right little touches. Our heads wrapped together created this wonderful scene! The most striking thing I think was her idea to use the tablecloth from Target as a slipcover. Freakin’ GENIUS! It makes my couch look totally cool and perfect for Halloween entertaining, don’t you think?
Here’s other little touches I love about our arrangement!
You may recognize this little guy from my post on Friday. In the center of my coffee table is a bowlful of sparkly, shiny, and polka dot balls I have both made and held onto for crafts and for special little arrangements like this!
I put my Grandmother’s candy dish on display. I love it so much. She always used to put starlight mints or butterscotch in there, but I went with one of my favorite holiday candies – orange and black Mary Janes.
I wasn’t sure how this wasn’t going to look at first, but I think it turned out cute! I glued black trash bags together as drapes (how inexpensive is that??) I then accented them with decorations I had in my decorations bin.
My posters are from Deals (a subsidiary of Dollar Tree) 4 years back for only a $1! One of my best deals (pun intended) to date. They are a bit wrinkled cause the backer cardboard they were on bent, but it actually adds a cool, distressed look to it.
Silvia made the comment that I had a lot of stuff. Whenever people say that, I always say, “No I don’t”, but admittedly now I realize that I kinda do. That is what is good about putting a look like this together. It’s fun to mix and match and try to see what works. If you are limited on your accents, it makes it a lot harder!
It feels good to have things look so complete in this little area! I haven’t got my whole apartment decorated, but I have a lot more cool ideas to execute so I’ll keep you on the down low when I get them completed!
Until next time Swellions!
