BOOtiful Decorations {Halloween 2014}

 

I wanted to share more of my Halloween decor scattered through the parlor and stair parlor of my home.

I love this mummy that J & I found on a recent jaunt to The Plant Gallery, and it was 30% off. Deal. I added it to the secretary.

In the niches between the parlor and stair parlor, the apothecary jars are filled with glittered chains, glittered skulls, and faux bones.

At the base of the staircase, the concrete clam shell is filled with glittered skulls, googly eyes, a glittery hand, and a crystal orb.

A “trick or treat” pillow sits in my favorite hide & leather chair.

A skull on a pedestal is looking tres debonair with hat and tie. I placed it under a cloche to give it prominence.

Hoda & Karen!

 

Look who J & I ran into on Friday night at Houston’s Restaurant on St. Charles Avenue…

Hoda and Karen

Hoda Kotb of The Today Show’s Kathie Lee & Hoda and Karen Swenson, one of my fave anchors on the local WWL-TV (CBS) station.

Hoda and Karen are besties and have been since working together at WWL-TV back in the day.

We all feel like we know Hoda from her days in the national spotlight.

Hoda and Karen are both two of the nicest women on TV. I was so happy to spend time with them for a photo op on Friday night.

I just wonder who I will run into next weekend…..

Cheers to Hoda and Karen, y’all!

BOOtiful Stair Parlor {Halloween 2014}

 

Moving into the stair parlor, the BOOtiful Halloween decor makes a great show. The round vintage clock table makes for an interesting focal point.

Holding books and my fave boxes, the Halloween decor incorporates well with my prized table.

On the center, the large vintage silver trophy cup contains green hydrangea, palm fronds, black aspen leaves, and Spanish moss. Glittery chains fall freely from the trophy cup.

I love to decorate the stair parlor. I do my best to keep Halloween classy.
