Halloween decor does not have to give you the creeps!  You can have cute Halloween decor too!

This year I’ve created a Halloween tree.

Now, if you know me, you know that I *love* Christmas and I *love* Christmas trees so any excuse to put up a tree is a perfect excuse for me!  

I found this tinsel tree in the Christmas decor section and knew I would take it home with me and put it up promptly!  

The Steiff Halloween scared black cats are the ornaments in the tree. As well as a few other creepy items – some potion book ornaments found for a bargain at Tuesday Morning as well a sa pumpkin gourd from a local Fall festival. 

A raven also perched itself into the tree.  The ribbon is Mackenzie Child’s courtly check ribbon I’ve had for years.

 A vintage clapsaddle candy box sits at the bottom as well as my Hedwig the Owl (from Harry Potter, if you are a fan!)

The Halloweentown village sits in the center of the island.  There is a haunted barn, mansion, carriage house and train.

It is particularly fun at night – the lights flash and make eerie sounds.  The sounds can be turned on and off.

A look at my elegantly haunted table… inspired by the phantom of the opera!

I wrote a whole post about this table earlier this week – check it out here.

Mr. Swan is joining the masquerade party held at the opera!

He is carrying dead roses this time.

Potion bottles add an extra Halloween flair.

My little phantom of the opera nutcracker is haunting the party as well on the left.

The Halloween mantle is extra spooky with the black and white courtly check! 

 I am not generally into new figurines, preferring antique ones instead, but I do like these little Halloween characters from Lori Mitchell.

The little girl witch riding her broomstick is new this year!

The center pumpkins say BEWARE!  I love their miniature size.

A last look at this year’s Halloween house tour!
