The calendar has flipped to October, which means it’s pumpkin season! My apartment isn’t exactly conducive to pumpkin carving, so I opted for a cleaner project and painted my pumpkin patch with some neon pink paint and my favorite patterns: stripes and polka dots! Are you decorating pumpkins for Fall?

Happy Halloween! I celebrated in costume on Saturday: a cocktail in a coconut, a sailor’s hat, and some nautical duds made me Skipper from Gilligan’s Island. And my sister stayed the weekend; she came with the cutest box of chocolate covered pretzels in festive Halloween sprinkles! How are you celebrating?

Somehow Halloween snuck up on me this year, is it really the end of October already? To get in the holiday spirit I’ve rounded up a few seasonal decor items to give your place a dash of ghoulish party atmosphere. The glittery hanging bats from West Elm are my absolute favorite!
