I'm excited for another guest post. Today it's from Paige from Little Nostalgia. She is currently in school studying to be an Interior Designer so I knew she would be the right person to talk about some Halloween decor!
Greetings, readers of Pulp Sushi! I'm Paige from Little Nostalgia. When Marilyn told me she was looking for folks to help her do a month of Halloween-themed posts, I knew exactly what I wanted to chat about. The decorations!
I'll be real with you, though: I don't like to shell out a ton of money to decorate. Even for Halloween, I like to use what I have and keep the cash in my wallet. Today I'll show you the decorations I have in my own house, and some tricks for keeping things affordable.
Tip #1: Use what you have. On my dining room sideboard I made a little vignette using my creepiest looking books, some candles, and a blackbird I was gifted a few Christmases ago. The only thing purchased this year was the orange candle from IKEA for $1.99.
...and this sugar skull was a free printable.
Tip #4: Party down. If you're having a get-together, set out some of your goodies early. Instead of leaving our spider, bat, and skull rings in the package until party time, I put them in a bowl in the family room (and paired them with the other blackbird). Total cost: $1.
