Spooky Door Decor

I'll be the first to admit that I don't go all out at Halloween. In fact, it's a holiday that I really don't care for.

A few years ago, while my now-husband-then-boyfriend and I were at a costume ball, I got the news from two police officers that my Dad has died. Sort of puts a damper on the whole holiday and getting dressed up thing.

Now that I'm a mom, and my son is almost-2.5 years old, I'm trying to make an extra effort to embrace the holiday this year since it will be his first one getting dressed up and going out trick-or-treating.

One thing I'm going to be doing...

That's right! Our door will be mummified!

White crepe paper streamers, two white plates and two black plates!

HUGE impact! I think Owen will love it, and hopefully the trick-or-treaters will too!

I love it! And I am very proud of you. I cannot say I know what you feel because I have not lost a parent but I think you are taking HUGE steps to make this "holiday" something special for you and your son. xoxox
