Today I have a special treat, no tricks! Do you love Halloween? Then you’re going to enjoy this Halloween home tour. It’s spooktacular!
Halloween is less than a week away.
I don’t do much any Halloween decorating.
So I thought it would be fun to share my friend Shelley’s Halloween home.
Shelley and I have known each other since high school.
And we’re a case of opposites attract.
While I’m firmly in the less-is-more camp when it comes to decorating.
Shelley is a card carrying member of the more-is-more club.
In fact, she may be its president.
Shelley never met a holiday she didn’t love.
And Halloween is no exception.
Shelley starts early, and spend weeks getting her house ready for each holiday.
She frequently stays up until the wee hours until she gets it just right.
If Shelley didn’t have a full time job decorating her home for holidays she’d be an amazing set stylist.
Or department store window stager.
I’ve encouraged Shelley to start a blog.
She ignores me.
She’s too busy preparing for the next holiday.
After some final zhushing, Shelley sent these photos for us to enjoy.
Without further ado let’s take a look at Shelley’s Halloween Home.
Shelley and her husband, Bill, recently moved into a brand new house.
I can’t believe how quickly she unpacked and got holiday ready.
Hey there, Shelley, may we come in?!
I love her layered mats and look at the bows on her wreath and lanterns.
Shelley is an expert bow tier.
She bought her wreath last year on Etsy.
She asked the shopkeeper to make it bigger.
Shelley says bigger is better and more is more.
She purchased similar ribbon to create matching bows for her lanterns.
She gets a ten out of ten for pumpkin placement.
Look at her foyer and grand staircase!
Let’s take a closer look at the console vignette.
Who doesn’t love a flock of floating bats.
The Halloween trees are from Hobby Lobby back when they sold Halloween decor.
The haunted mansion was her mothers.
Shelley placed it on a mirror and created the surrounding scene.
This amazing console vignette leads to the family room.
Shelley’s kitchen and eat-in area ~
The candelabra in her dining room is from Ballard Designs.
And for the piece de resistance … the cauldron!
I asked Shelley were she procures her holiday decor.
It’s the usual suspects Michael’s, Joann’s, Home Goods, World Market, etc.
And she’s an expert at sourcing from Etsy, Facebook Marketplace, eBay and craft fairs.
And many local, independent decor stores as well.
Although they’ve been dwindling.
We’ll never recover from the closure of Elegant Clutter in Danville.
Thanks for allowing us into your beautiful new home decorated for Halloween.
The trick or treaters will be flocking to your door!
So there you have it.
A few glimpses of my friend Shelley’s Halloween home.

I’ll be back on Saturday for Weekend Meanderings with Kim and Elizabeth.
Until then, cheers from Snowberry!
